Play Station 2 (PS2) controller is relatively easy to obtain from any game store and it offers good human manual input for control system. More and more developers are looking into applying existing PS2 controller to control particular system. In here, we going to explore on how to interface PS2 controller with SK40C through SKPS controller starter kit.
Relay have become a common use electronic component which operate as an switching device by simply apply voltage to ON and OFF it. For this project, we will discover a simple relay connected with an LED to show what is the basic function and connection.
Universal Asynchronous Receive/Transmit (UART) has becoming a popular item on sending and receiving data in the fast way. In here, we are going to experience on how to use UC00A to communicate with our computer/PC and SK40C.
Besides on directly connected 7 segment with direct I/O port from microcontroller, we can also use the CD4511 (7 segment encoder) to help on decreasing the microcontroller I/O port and only required to send the binary data.
Nowadays, 7 segment has become the most popular display unit on market because it is cheap, easy to program and small. On market, we can found that there was 2 types of 7 segment which is common anode and common cathode. In this project, we are going to use 7 segment with common cathode and directly interface to microcontroller.
MD10C is an enhanced version of the MD10B which is designed to drive high current brushed DC motor up to 10A continuously. It offers several enhancements over the MD10B such as support for both locked-antiphase and sign-magnitude PWM signal as well as using full solid state components which result in faster response time and eliminate the wear and tear of the mechanical relay.
A photoresistor or light dependent resistor (LDR) is a resistance decreases with increasing incident light intensity. It can also be referred to as a photoconductor. In here, we going to do a simple connection of LDR and display the ADC and Voltage value on LCD.
Piezo buzzer, generally use as a sensor and actuator which are use to measure force, pressure , tools for positioning object and etc. As for this project, we are going to use it to generate a melody by applying PWM frequency to it.
