Auto-Adjustable Regulators Power Pentium Pro 12/07/95  EDN-Design Ideas Powering Intel’s next-generation Pentium Pro   (P6) µ proves to be a nontrivial task due to both the greater-than-30W load and the need to finely adjust input voltage level on a chip-by-chip basis.  The AA32A family of switching regulators from Astec America __ Circuit Design by Maury Wright Astec America Inc, Carlsbad, CA

Autodetect Baud Rate 07/20/00 EDN-Design Ideas The popularity and easy access of RS-232 ports lend them to many communication projects.  You can use a port "as is" or as a tiny parallel port when the exchange uses only control lines.  Before the asynchronous serial-data transfer b __ Circuit Design by Alexander Eisen, State University of New York, Buffalo, New York

Automated USB controlled Power Switch Power for TV and set top box   (STB) is derived from a common switchboard.  The switched-mode power supply   (SMPS) of the TV continues to draw a small amount of power from mains and the STB is not switched off when you switch off the remote.  This next project presents a circuit that can control mains power of an LED TV and the DTH STB.  It also protects the devices from harmful initial surges when power comes back after a power failure.__ Electronics Projects for You

Automatic Power-Off Saves Battery 12/19/96 EDN-Design Ideas The Basic training program in Listing 1  helps visually handicapped people easily learn Braille dot code with the help of a trainer.  The trainer generates six-pin Braille code using six solenoids operating on an LPT1/2 either by directly connecting the low-power solenoids to the data bits of the parallel port or by driving solenoid pins  (pull-out type] using an UN2003 power driver  (Figure 1).  Push-in type solenoids require complemented  (0 for 1 and 1 for 0] Braille-code data bits or an extra inverter on the LPT1 port __ Circuit Design by Jose Carlos Cossio, Santander, Spain

Autostart helps ATX Motherboards resume operation after power interruptions 20-Jan-05 EDN-Design Ideas Unlike legacy PC motherboards, an ATX-style motherboard controls its power supply's on/off state.  If ac power fails, many ATX motherboards do not automatically restart when power returns, and that behavior is unacceptable for a server system that must provide near-continuous service.  Although some PCs provide BIOS configuration selections for "wake-on-LAN" or "wake-on-modem" operation, these op __ Circuit Design by William Mohat, Ameritech, Cleveland, OH

AVR 323 Board schematic for an ATMega323 boards   (Mega is pin compatible withAT90S8535) The main interface to this board is RS232

AVR 8 & 20 pin programming adapter Okits not pretty, but its practical.  The 20 pin connector at the far right is left over from a diffferent project and is no longer used.  This adaptor lets me program 8 or 20 pin DIP devices using the In-System Programmer   (ISP) described in Atmel's AVR910 application note.  This circuit provides power and clocks for the part to be programmed and power to the ISP circuit.  When programming 8 pin devices, the part is positioned toward pins 1 and 20 of the socket such that the 8 pins of the chip occupy the pins 1, 2, 3, 4, 17, 18, 19, abd 20 of the programming socket.  In the case of an 8 pin part being programmed, the SPST switch that grounds pin 4 must to be closed.  Conversely, when programming a 20 pint part, the switch on pin 4 must be open so the crystal can be used for the clock for the part being programmed.   __ Designed by Dick Cappels

AVR Based Serial Port IR Receiver This is a simple IR receiver circuit which plugs into a serial port of a computer.  Okay, there are many other circuits of this kind, and most of them are even simpler, but this circuit has two major advantages:   (1) it uses an Atmel AVR RISC microcontroller   (an AT90S2313) instead of the usual PIC microcontroller and   (2) it uses a MAX232 for the generation of valid RS232 levels.   __ Designed by Klaus Stock

AVR Dongle This circuit is intended to program AVR controllers such as the AT90S1200 via the parallel port.  The circuit is extremely simple.  IC1 provides buffering for the signals that travel from the parallel port to the microcontroller and vice versa.  This is essentially everything that can be said about the circuit.  The two boxheaders (K2 and

AVR Firmware Monitor Program Works on AVR controllers with RAM and a hardware UART.  This code is easily modified to integrate with ROM applications to provide the ability to monitor and interact with ROM applications via an terminal simulation program over an RS-232 port.  It can also be used to stimulate and monitor I/O to aid in debugging hardware.  It is very heLPFul to be able to look around at memory, I/O and peripherals, and change things inside a running controller.  If you adapt this to a controller with a stack pointer that is more than 8 bits wide, be sure that both registers in the stack pointer, both spl and sph, are initialized.   __ Designed by Dick Cappels

AVR Student Projects Sure, Project Natal is the hotness and a little bird tells us PlayStation Move is pretty bodacious, but you don't have to buy a fancy game console to sooth your motion-tracking blues.  When students at Cornell University wanted to play Human Tetris   (and ace a final project to boot) , they taught a 20Mhz, 8-bit microcontroller how to follow their moves.  Combined with an NTSC camera, the resulting system can display a 39 x 60 pixel space at 24 frames per second, apparently enough to slot your body into some grooves -- and as you'll see in videos after the break, it plays a mean game of Breakout, too.  Full codebase and plans to build your own at the source link.  Eat your heart out, geeks.   __ Designed by Sean Hollister
