World’s first fully digital radio transmitter built purely from microprocessor technology

For the first time in history, a prototype radio has been created that is claimed to be completely digital, generating high-frequency radio waves purely through the use of integrated circuits and a set of patented algorithms without using conventional analog radio circuits in any way whatsoever. This breakthrough technology promises to vastly improve the wireless communications capabilities of everything fr ...

Digital thermometer using arduino

Digital thermometer using arduino and LM35. This article is about a simple three digit digital thermometer using arduino. Range of this thermometer is from 0°C to 99.9°C. There is also a provision for displaying the temperature in °F scale. Three terminal analog temperature sensor LM35 is used as the sensor here. LM35 can measure temperatures between -55°C to +155°C. The supply voltage range is from 4V to 3 ...

DIY Digital AC Watt Meter

Have you ever been curious about the power consumption of an appliance? For example did you wonder how much it will cost you to leave your television in standby mode whole night? Or did you want to learn how much change your refrigerator settings will make on your electric bill? If your answer is yes, you can use a wattmeter to measure the power consumption of a device. In this project we are building one. ...

PIC Digital Thermometer and Clock

Here you will find complete construction details including circuit diagrams, PCB layouts and PIC firmware (and the source code). The code was written in Proton PIC BASIC but the good news is that there is now a free version of this compiler available for download; AMICUS18. ** UPDATED 30th June 2016 ** There is an update to this project available that replaces the inferior DS1302 RTC with a much more accura ...

Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC) DAC Theory

A digital to analogue converter takes a series of digital inputs (a string of 1s and 0s, in our case there will be 8 of them like 10011001) and converts it into an analogue output. You see DACs in every digital audio device (MP3 players, CD players) as these all store music in digital form, but need to drive a speaker with an analogue signal. Hence the need to convert the digital data into an analogue signa ...

Temperature Sensing using DS18B20 Digital Sensors

Note: When referring to Arduino below, this works in the same way on the emonTx which is arduino-based. The DS18B20 is a small thermometer with a built in 12bit ADC; it can be easily connected to Arduino digital input. The sensor communicates over a one-wire bus and requires little in the way of additional components. The sensors have a quoted accuracy of +/-0.5 deg C in the range -10 deg C to +85 deg C. Ha ...

Arduino Projects: Digital Audio Recorder

Being able to capture sound, store it and play it over and over again never fails to leave me in awe of its pioneers, from Thomas Edison to Alan Blumlein, the British electrical engineer who, in 1931, invented ‘binaural recording’ – what we now call ‘stereo’. (Never heard of him? Blumlein amassed 128 patents in audio, radar and television that are still in use today, but tragically, was killed in a plane cr ...

Fun With The Arduino Esplora: A Digital Picture Frame

With this article I kick off my series on the Arduino Esplora board. Today's project is a nice (and cheap!) little digital picture frame that uses the Esplora's TFT Screen add-on. Materials Needed In this section you will find the materials that you need to obtain to build this project. Arduino Esplora Board The Arduino Esplora is the most feature rich of all the Arduino boards. It has the shape of a game c ...

Digital Arduino Voltmeter with Temperature

Step 1: The case I dug out an appropriate case from the dumpster, milled out a rectangular hole for the lcd, and drilled holes to mount the LCD and the Arduino. I used brass standoffs and fiber washers to prevent shorts. Then I gave the whole case a quick spray of flat black to cover the scratched and scraped gray that originally covered the case. Step 2: Voltage Divider The first part of the code and elect ...

Arduino Digital Voltmeter 0V to 30V

Here is a useful circuit for Arduino lovers and experimenters. It is a simple digital voltmeter, which can safely measure input dc voltages in 0 to 30V range. The Arduino board can be powered from a standard 9V battery pack, as usual. As you may well know, Arduino’s analog inputs can be used to measure DC voltage between 0 and 5V (when using the standard 5V analog reference voltage) and this range can be in ...

Arduino Project 5: Digital audio player

So far in this series we’ve had a diverse look at how Arduino can interact with a range of real-world devices from servo motors to ultrasonic range finders TVs to humidity sensors. Now we’ll see if we could get the Arduino to make a few sounds. We’ll actually do a bit better than that – we’ll look at the importance of pulse width modulation (PWM) to microcontrollers by building our own digital audio player ...

FM430 – A MSP430 and TEA5767 Project that lets you listen to clear digital FM

One fine day while i was rummaging through the part bin, I found an old project that probably was never completed ! FM Radio ! I tried to make one when i was in 7th grade, waiting at the counter of a dingy electronics repair shop for anyone to pay attention to the parts list gathered over the internet ( Dial up days ! ). At that time, i just jotted down all i could from the internet and went straight to the ...
