GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) technology lets user to communicate with others across mobile networks hence it offers a vast area of coverage. Interfacing GSM technology with microcontroller will enable us to extend the communication to cover large area. This tutorial will teach you about interfacing GSM module with atmega32 AVR microcontroller and program it to communicate it with another use ...Read more ›
Sometimes we need to extend or add more I/O ports to our microcontroller based project. Because usually we only have a limited I/O port left than the logical choice is to use the serial data transfer method; which usually only requires from one up to four ports for doing the data transfer. Currently there are few types of modern embedded system serial data transfer interface widely supported by most of the ...Read more ›
Most of microcontrollers work within 5 volt environment and the I/O port can only handle current up to 20mA; therefore if we want to attach the microcontroller’s I/O port to different voltage level circuit or to drive devices with more than 20mA; we need to use the interface circuit. One of the popular method is to use the Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) or we just called it transistor in this tutorial. I ...Read more ›
Back in the old days the COM port or known as RS-232 (EIA-232 standard) is one of the essential communications protocol and hardware use in many computer system installation start from small UNIX machine to the mainframe. The RS-232 protocol is used by terminal such as wyse60 or DEC vt100 which connected through direct cable or modem to the UNIX host or legacy system. Actually you could still tracked this h ...Read more ›
An advanced energy saver project with DTMF capabilities to use electricity efficiently by reducing the unwanted uses.
INTRODUCTION: A lot of electricity is wasted due to ignorance or fault of the user. Sometimes a person in the room turns on all the electric equipments which is of no use to them. As an example, supposedly a person enters in the hall or conference hall (where a large number of tube lights or fans are available). In the default scenario, all the equipments would be turned on which is just wastage of elect ...Read more ›
How a generic keyboard is made has been already explained in the Atmega 32u4 Based Generic USB Keyboard Project. In this project a wireless keyboard will be designed. For making a wireless keyboard, there will be two circuits involved in the project - a transmitter circuit which will have a keypad included for getting the user input and a receiver circuit that will connect with the PC through USB port. The ...Read more ›
