Simple Event Counter

Microcontroller based miniscule event counter presented here is based on the inexpensive Digispark Attiny development board. One advantage of this design is that any type of active or passive switch can be connected to its trigger input. Whenever the switch closes event will be counted inside the microcontroller and would be displayed on the 4-digit LED display module, a type generally known as TM1637 LED D ...

LDR Based DC Motor Speed Control

A light-dependent resistor (LDR) whose resistance is inversely proportional to the intensity of light is often used as a sensor in electronic projects that involve the use of light. This LDR based DC motor speed control project uses an LDR to control the speed of a DC motor. The objective of this project is to see how much faster the motor moves when a hand is brought closer to it. This circuit could be ver ...
