WOW- My Earlier Microntroller Project

My Earlier Microntroller Project

I build a microcontroller project for the general purpose applications. Most of these components are ordered from a supplier in the United States. The microcontroller devices help save cost, time and effort to build electronics projects. Microcontroller a.k.a. MCU is the brain of all smart electronics system. Examples of electrical appliances or electronic systems are microwave oven, washing machine, CD players, MP3 players, cellphones, etc.

In this project, I studied deeply on how to manipulate data and processing of the MCU. Using light-emitting diodes or LEDs, demonstrate the response of it. Commonly used microcontrollers nowadays are PIC from Microchip, ATMEGA from ATMEL, and AVR. There are other electronic manufacturers producing MCUs such as STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, Panasonic, Cypress Semiconductor, and many more.

If any project is requiring a short development time, there are lots of MCU development boards available in the market. There are many devboards to choose depending on the application requirements.

From the video shown, an up/down counter is incorporated in the MCU project. I work on this project for my hobby and robotic projects.
