Digital Thermometer on a Nokia LCD Screen

If you have an old Nokia 3310 cell phone, don't throw it away. You can use its LCD screen for this cool project. This project describes the use of such a LCD to display temperature.  It uses PIC12F629 microchip as a brain that reads temperature measurement from a DS18B20 sensor, and displays it on a Nokia 3310 LCD screen.

The Nokia LCD has 84x84 resolution and runs on 2.7-3.3 V supply, and PIC12F629 can also be operated within this voltage range. The best thing is to operate this with 2 AA batteries. For circuit diagram and firmware, Visit Here.

Contact less tachometer using PIC16F628A

Introduction
Tachometer is a device that gives you the information about the rotational speed of any shaft or disc. It usually measures the speed in revolutions per minute (RPM). Today we are going to make a simple tachometer that could measure the rotation speed of a disk without making any physical contact (that's why it is contact less) with the rotating object. The range of this tachometer is 0 - 9999 RPM and displays the RPM on a multiplexed 4-digit seven-segment display. Of course, we are going to do this project on our usual PIC16F628A development board.

Infrared sensor
Contact-less measurement of RPM will be achieved through an IR sensor. An IR diode will send a beam of infrared towards the rotating disc, and any reflected pulse will be received by a photo diode. The resistance of a photo diode drops drastically when exposed to infrared. An infrared is reflected by a white surface and absorbed by the dark ones. The test disc for this project is shown below. You can see the …

Experiment No. 2 : Push Button and Seven Segment Display Interface

In this experiment, we will program the PIC16F628A as an UP/DOWN Decade Counter. The count value will be displayed on a Seven-Segment Display and will be incremented/decremented by two push buttons on the board.

Experimental Setup:
The board has built in interface for a multiplexed 4-digit seven segment display (HS-5461AS2 from www.futurlec.com).We will select only one digit by connecting a Digit Select pin to Vcc, as shown in figure below. A black jumper wire is used for this purpose. The seven segments will be driven through PORTB (already wired on the board). Connect Push Buttons (PB3 and PB4) to RA1 and RA0 female headers using jumper wires.


PIC16F628A Development Board

The development board we are going to make for our experimental microcontroller PIC16F628A will look like this. Here are the features it is going to have:
Access to all I/O pins through female header pins4 Push Buttons for Input4 LEDs for OutputAn LCD Interface PortA 4-digit Seven-Segment Display InterfaceLCD Backlight Switch and Contrast AdjustmentICSP Programming (Very Important)
