Simple digital clock with PIC16F628A and DS1307 and 7-segment LED display

Thursday, June 13th, 2019

A simple digital clock with PIC16F628A + DS1307: In this new project I am again using PIC16F628A microcontroller. The goal is simple digital clock with 7-segment LED display and the clock will have no additional functionality - no alarm, no seconds digits, no date. The latter can be added in...

Arduino measures heart beat rate from fingertip

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

Raj of Embedded Lab writes: The PIC16F628A based heart rate meter is one of the most popular projects published on Embedded Lab. In this article, I am going to show how to replicate the same project using a simpler platform like Arduino. The Arduino heart rate meter will use Arduino Uno,...

Audio oscillator with frequency counter

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Xristost blogged about his DIY Audio oscillator with frequency counter project: After I finished the oscillator, I made some minor changes in the square signal part of the schematic. I connected five of the inverters in parallel with low value load resistors, thus reducing the influence of the parasitic capacitance of...

Optically controlled servo motor

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Dilshan Jayakody  writes: This is demonstration project to control servo motor movement using physical marker and normal video camera. In this project video camera capture the movements of marker and calculate rotation angle based on that. This calculated rotation angle is feed to the servo through small MCU based interfacing...

0-99 minute timer

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Raj decided to make a tutorial on how to implement a 0-99 minute timer on a PIC16F628A microcontroller. His design uses a HD44780 compatible 2x16 text LCD, to setup and display the count-down timer. One pin of the PIC should be used to drive a relay, but for testing purposes...
