Dear friends,

 

On this site, you will find many circuits based on AVR micro-controllers (ìC) from Atmel. I will be adding more circuits, because micro controllers, are used in a lot of applications.

 

The purpose of my web site is to help you work with these little powerful integrated circuits, known as micro-controllers. I believe you will be helped a lot by the source code of the projects I published on my web site.

Todays, microcontrollers are very advanced. All microControllers contain FLASH memory, USART, RAM, EEPROM, SPI, TWI (I2C)  and many more features, all in one chip at  very low cost.

 

Micro-controllers are ideal for developing applications such as remote control by mobile phone, monitoring temperatures, pressures, air/liquid flow, driving LCD screens, electric motors, custom measuring instrument tools (oscilloscopes, volt meters etc), web servers/clients and many more.

 

The only limit is the end of  your imagination! Be creative!

 

Happy reading,

Vassilis Serasidis
