CREATE FIENDISHLY FUN tinyAVR MICROCONTROLLER PROJECTS

This wickedly inventive guide shows you how to conceptualize, build, and program 34 tinyAVR microcontroller devices that you can use for either entertainment or practical purposes. After covering the development process, tools, and power supply sources, tinyAVR Microcontroller Projects for the Evil Genius gets you working on exciting LED, graphics LCD, sensor, audio, and alternate energy projects.

Using easy-to-find components and equipment, this hands-on guide helps you build a solid foundation in electronics and embedded programming while accomplishing useful--and slightly twisted--projects. Most of the projects have fascinating visual appeal in the form of large LED-based displays, and others feature a voice playback mechanism. Full source code and circuit files for each project are available for download.

tinyAVR Microcontroller Projects for the Evil Genius Features step-by-step instructions and helpful illustrations Allows you to customize each project for your own requirements Offers full source code for all projects for download

Build these and other devious devices: Flickering LED candle Random color and music generator Mood lamp VU meter with 20 LEDs Celsius and Fahrenheit thermometer RGB dice Tengu on graphics display Spinning LED top with message display Contactless tachometer Electronic birthday blowout candles Fridge alarm Musical toy Batteryless infrared remote Batteryless persistence-of-vision toy

Each fun, inexpensive Evil Genius project includes a detailed list of materials, sources for parts, schematics, and lots of clear, well-illustrated instructions for easy assembly. The larger workbook-style layout and convenient two-column format make following the step-by-step instructions a breeze. Up-to-date, easy-to-follow coverage of electricity and electronics

In Teach Yourself Electricity and Electronics, Fifth Edition, a master teacher provides step-by-step lessons in electricity and electronics fundamentals and applications. Detailed illustrations, practical examples, and hundreds of test questions make it easy to learn the material quickly. This fully revised resource starts with the basics and takes you through advanced applications, such as communications systems and robotics. Solve current-voltage-resistance-impedance problems, make power calculations, optimize system performance, and prepare for licensing exams with help from this hands-on guide.

Synopsis:

Have some evil fun with tinyAVR microcontrollers!

Featuring inventive projects like a custom, battery-free TV remote control and a multilingual talking thermometer, tinyAVR Microcontroller Projects for the Evil Genius unravels the details of these extremely potent microcontrollers. Youll learn how to put them to use in such varied applications as gaming platforms, toys, and gadgets. The projects include creative and enticing applications like a persistence of vision (POV) toy that prints messages in the air, birthday blowout candles using LEDs that also play a happy birthday song, and a spinning top that displays different messages as it spins.

All the projects are programmed in C using the AVRGCC compiler. The book assumes some knowledge of the C programming language but elements of C useful for embedded applications are explained through examples. All of the projects use the AVR series of tiny microcontrollers. A free C compiler, the AVRGCC, is available and runs on Windows and Linux platforms. The assembled or compiled code can be downloaded into the microcontrollers and some can be built from scratch.

tinyAVR Microcontroller Projects for the Evil Genius features:

  • 30+ complete and working projects with step-by-step instructions
  • Thorough explanations plus design choices and suggestions for customization and modifications
  • Many projects that available in kit form
  • A hands-on method that helps you learn by doing as you build a solid foundation in electronics and embedded programming while accomplishing useful and fun-filled projects
