UART Between Microcontrollers Using Proteus

john September 8, 2017 5 Comments
UART Between Microcontrollers Using Proteus UART stands for Universal Asynchronous Reception and Transmission of data serially between two terminals. This mode of communication has the advantage of data transmission using lesser number of I/O Pins. For longer transmission distances this is essential as it involves less number of transmission wires. In this article, we shall see how two microcontrollers communicate with each other using their UART peripheral. UART Bridge Between Two Microcontrollers We shall discuss this through a simulation...

Matrix Keypad Interfacing Using Proteus

john September 28, 2017 1 Comment
In this article let’s discuss designing of matrix keypads and the programming part to get the information regarding the pressed key. The Matrix keypads are used in systems/control panels where Human Machine Interface (HMI) is required in order to change the operating parameters of a system/machine. The Computer keyboard is also a matrix keypad. The name itself infers that it has some keys arranged in rows and columns. Here arrangement of keys doesn’t mean the layout of the keys...
