AVR based USB website hit counter

Posted on Wednesday, August 1st, 2012 in AVR by DP

AVR based USB website hit counter, displays the hit count on a 8 digit 7-segment display.

This is a USB Physical Hit Counter. This version requires one MCU to communicate between PC and 7-segments display driver.I decided using AVR microcontroller and this is my first AVR project.The purpose of this project still same as previous version.Therefore,it used to count and display the total page hits on any website instead of using only general scripts such as PHP,Java,CGI etc.

    Just hit the write-up and noticed the display is driven by the MAX7219. Octopart is reporting prices in the $11 – $14 range. Seems like it would make a lot more sense to use a slightly more powerful MCU with more I/O pins and drive the LEDs directly.

    They are expensive at “proper” suppliers, but at ebay you can get a pack of 10 for $5.15 http://r.ebay.com/TbYgXf
