The Versatile Development Board for AVR microcontrollers ATmega48/88/168

For those of you here that always involved yourself with the AVR microcontrollers, have you ever wished to build a multipurpose development board that compatible with all type of AVRs microcontrollers, such as ATmega48, 88 or 168? Well, you can simply use this board for testing and debugging embedded programs since it has many built-in peripherals connected to microcontroller. Thus, you can use them without even a further soldering or modification! Ok, I know it sounds unnecessary here, but for those that never ever used any ATmega microcontrollers before, you should know that they have many great features, which as: Easy to adjust I/O, Timers, PWM generators, ADC, RS232, TWI, SPI, Analog Comparator, Osillator, EEPROM etc. The main reasons why you should use these microcontrollers because they’re very versatile, easy… Continue reading

Infra-Red Link and AVR – Would These Two a Good Match?

Have you ever think about by combining the two different things: Infrad-red link and AVR then transform them into a cool stuff? Well, if you haven’t tried it before, you have to test it out today! To cut the long story short, you just going straight to the point… Firstly, you might want to build the prototype in stages. The first stage will contain just the AVR and an infrared detector with some bypass capacitors. Don’t waste your time build the circuit on breadboard, as it wouldn’t work. The breadboard is picking up noise, thus you need to remove the components from the breadboard and solder them to a prototyping board. Now, the circuit will be working. Then, you would need to add a 14.7456 MHz crystal and the two… Continue reading
