Thank you for taking the time to explore the avrprojects website. Here you can find projects about AVR 8-bit microcontrollers. We hope you´ll find these pages both educational as inspiring.
This board is a development board on which you can build your projects. It is suited for educational use, experiments or prototyping. The board uses the ATTiny2313 microcontroller with a 20Mhz clock. The board contains the ISP 10-pin connector for in circuit serial programming. It has also a push button reset switch. It has 15 digital I/O ports with 4 PWM output channels.
The LM335AZ is a cheap (0,75 €) temperature sensor that reads the surrounding temperature and is calibrated in degrees Kelvin. The LM335 has an output from −40°C to 100°C.
The HDSP2111 is a very nice LED display, the can show 8 alphanumeric characters in a 5 x 7 dot matrix, and are all packaged in a standard 15.24 mm (0.6 inch) 28 pin DIP. The onboard CMOS IC has 128 ASCII characters which are permanently stored in ROM.
The ATMega328 board is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a RS232 connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button.
A photocell or photo resistor is a Light Dependent Resistors (LDR). LDR's are sensors that detect light. They are small, inexpensive, low-power, easy to use and don't wear out.
