microprocessor-based dual duty switch

Posted on Jun 23, 2012

Traditional control-system designs use separate switches to control power and various system functions, but adding a few components to a small, microprocessor-based system can combine a control function with the system`s on/off switch. For example, you can design a system to display relative humidity and temperature (Reference 1).

This small, battery-powered system requires a microprocessor-controlled on/off power switch, which you implement with a pushbutton, and a function switch to change the display from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, which you implement as a toggle swi
