Speed C functions for C16x microcontrollers - 08/03/00 EDN-Design Ideas - The Infineon C16x Series of Cs use an internal 16-bit-register architecture.  The architecture can also process byte-wide functions.  The C uses byte moves to implement library functions such as memset (]or memcopy (].  This process makes the library code (DI #2569] __ Circuit Design by Hans-Herbert Kirste, WAGO, Minden, Germany - August 3, 2000

Speed Controller for Film Projectors - Do you have old family movies on film? Have you watched them lately? You may be shocked by how much they have deteriorated over the years.  They need to be transferred to DVD before the film deteriorates to the point where it is unwatchable.  Video conversion is not as straightforward as you might think but this simple project enables you to do it.__ SiliconChip

Speedy logic translator uses little power - 07/08/98 EDN-Design Ideas - In handheld equipment, component count and power consumption are critical considerations.  This design idea uses only a few transistors to configure a high-speed output stage of an RS-232C link while draining few precious milliamperes from the batteries.  In general __ Circuit Design by Davis Magliocco, CDPI, Scientrier, France

Studio Series Remote Control Module - Works With Any Universal Remote Control!__ SiliconChip

Super Annoying Musical PIC Thing - This is a really annoying little project.  It plays "Oh When The Saints Go Marching In" incessantly.  It's built for a 16F84 with a 10MHz oscillator, and uses pin B1 as the audio output.  It'll probably work on a 16C84 too.  Just connect a cheap piezo speaker to B1 and GND, and hey presto! Instant irritation! Trust me - words cannot convey how MINDLESSLY REPETITIVE and ANNOYING this thing is.  The one slightly clever thing about it is that it uses Pulse Width Modulation to produce the effect of 3 notes at once on a single digital channel.  The ZIP file contains full source, and a HEX file.   __ Designed by Ben  last name not found

Surface Mount Environmental Specifications - Application Note__ MiniCircuits.com

Switch Conserves Microcontroller's I/O Pin - 09/15/94 EDN-Design Ideas - The I/O pins of small, inexpensive microcontrollers are usually at a premium.  The PIC16C54 has only one and a half ports  (12 I/O pins) .  Some processors have even fewer.
My application required a single-pole, six-position rotary switch for six different user selections.  The direct approach would require six P pins, one for each selection, plus a pullup resistor for each pin. __ Circuit Design by Franklyn L Dahlberg Jr, US Air Force, Hill AFB, UT

Switch Yields Programming Voltage for Flash Cs - 08/01/96 EDN-Design Ideas - Flash Cs are gaining in popularity because of their low cost and ease of use.  For example, Atmel's 8051-compatible mCs range from 40-pin drop-in replacements to 20-pin devices.  The problem with new flash Cs devices is the need for support tools, such as suitable flash-memory programmers.   __ Circuit Design by Dhananjay Gadre, IUCAA, Pune, India

cells.   ]IC2 "fast-charges" cells by monitoring the cell's voltage and charging current __ Circuit Design by Huw Jones, Gyrus Medical Ltd, Cardiff, Wales, UK

Switching regulator (1) - I introduce the switching regulator which used LM2575-5.0 in this page.  You can make the stable voltage by using the 3 terminal regulator like LM317.  However, because the output electric current and the inputted electric current are the same approximately, the difference between the input electric power  (The input voltage x The input electric current) and the output power  (The output voltage x The output current) is consumed as the heat with the regulator.  Because it is, the efficiency isn't good.  In case of the switching regulator, it inputs only the electric power which is necessary to output from the input by the switching operation.  Because it is, there is little electric power to consume with the regulator and it is efficient.   __ Designed by Seiichi Inoue

Switching regulator 2 - I introduce the switching regulator which used MC34063A of the MOTOROLA, Inc.  in this page.  This regulator is housed in the DIP  (Dual In line Packge) with 8 pins.  The 1.5-A output current can be gotten without the heatsink in spite of this size.  The input voltage can be used from 3 V to 40 V and can do the function of the Step Up  (making the output voltage which is higher than the input voltage) , the Step Down  (making the output voltage which is lower than the input voltage) and moreover Inverting __ Designed by Seiichi Inoue

Synchronizing Firefly - This circuit simulates a firefly with a tiny microcontroller.  If put together with other fireflies, they will flash randomly.  But after some time they will start to interact with each other and the flashes will start synchronize until all fireflies flash at once.   __ Designed by Alexander Weber
