Getting Started with Embedded System Design on AVR


In this tutorial, we will learn how to interface LED with Atmega16 using AVR Studio.

An embedded system is built around a processor.
The design goals of an embedded system are to reduce size, cost and power consumption and to increase performance and reliability.

The microprocessor we are using is ATMEGA16.
The processor has limited internal memory, and if this is not sufficient for a given application external memory devices are used.
The hardware also includes any components that facilitate the user-application interaction such as display units, keypad.
The light emitting diodes are used for getting status information, such as power on, check output(high/low).
You all must have observed led decoration lights, which can glow in different patterns.

First, we will learn to interface a single Led and then 8 LEDs to learn a simple toggling technique.

Components Required:-
  • AVR controller(Atmega16)
  • LEDs
  • Connecting wires
  • USBASP Programmer
For single Led dump the following code:

#include<avr/io.h>
#include<util/delay.h>
void main()
{
DDRB=0xff;
int a=1;
while(1)
{
PORTB=a;
_delay_ms(100);
}
}

2.For toggling using 8 LEDs dump the following code:-

#include<avr/io.h>
#include<util/delay.h>
void main()
{
DDRB=0xff;
int a;
while(1)
{
for(a=1;a<=128;a=a*2)
{
PORTB=a;
_delay_ms(100); 
}
}
}

IoT - LPG Gas Sensor Logging with NodeMCU and Thingspeak.

In this tutorial, will learn, how to interface MQ-5 Module with Node Mcu(ESP8266).

The Grove - Gas Sensor(MQ5) module is useful for gas leakage detection (in home and industry). It is suitable for detecting H2, LPG, CH4, CO, Alcohol. Due to its high sensitivity and fast response time, measurements can be taken as soon as possible. The sensitivity of the sensor can be adjusted by using the potentiometer.

IoT - Humidity and Temperature Logging using NodeMCU and ThingSpeak

Hey Folks,
In this tutorial, we will learn, how to interface DHT 11 with Node Mcu(ESP8266).
The DHT11 is a basic, ultra low-cost digital temperature and humidity sensor. It uses a capacitive humidity sensor and a thermistor to measure the surrounding air and spits out a digital signal on the data pin (no analog input pins needed).

Follow the image below for circuit connection reference.
In this circuit, we have connected the output pin to the D3 pin of the NodeMcu module and NC pin remain disconnected. After making the circuit dump the code given below.

Servo Motor Control using ESP8266 and Blynk App

Hey folks, 
In this tutorial we will learn how to interface Servo motor with NodeMcu(ESP8266)module and operate it with the Blynk app. Servos are controlled by sending an electrical pulse of variable width, or pulse width modulation (PWM), through the control wire. There is a minimum pulse, a maximum pulse, and a repetition rate. A servo motor can usually only turn 90° in either direction for a total of 180° movement.
   Follow the image below for circuit connection reference. In this circuit, we have connected the output pin to the D0 pin of the NodeMcu module. If want to control the servo motor manually then connect a 10K potetiometer . The 10K potentiometer will work as a voltage divisor, changing the analog input level on  NodeMCU (A0) from 0 to 3.3V. Internally, the 10 bits ADC (Analog-Digital converter) will generate a digital value (from 0 to 1023), the PotReading, equivalent to the analog voltage input.
After making the circuit dump the code given below.
