|Experiments with AVR Microprocessors and APRS Packet Radio
Here is some experimental hardware and software to transmit and receive AX.25 packets.
Video-DVM is a very cheap DVM that shows how an output as complex as a videocomposite signal can be generated entirely in software: two I/O pins and three resistors are all the hardware required. Connected to any TV set it displays voltages, included max and min peaks, using both giant digits and an analog bar-display . A serial data output for computer data logging is provided, too.
|Simple AVR Programmers
These are simple AVR programmers. They are designed and built four different programmers for various envilonments: LPT controlled parallel programmer, LPT controlled ISP adapter, COM controlled ISP adapter and COM controlled generic SPI bridge. Additionaly, COM controlled adapters can be used as a communication cable between host PC and target board, it is useful for debugging. These AVR programmers have no controller on the programmer and directly controlled with port signals. Therefore, programming time is reduced shorter than any other programmers because there is not any communication delay such as command/result sequense between PC and programmer. These programmer can also be used with AVR studio :-). If you have a JTAG download cable controlled via LPT port for Xilinx, Lattice or Altera devices, it can also be used to program AVR.
Simple open-source USB AVR programmer and SPI interface. It is low cost, easy to make, works great with avrdude, is AVRStudio-compatible and tested under Windows, Linux and MacOS X.
General information about the AVR instruction set, architecture, code examples, microcontroller based projects and circuits.
|HIDKeys - An Example USB HID
HIDKeys demonstrates how AVR-USB can be used to implement the USB Human Interface Device (HID) class specification. It's a simple USB keyboard with up to 17 keys.
The project started as an enhancement of Martin Thomas Evertool project. He has rebuilt the AVRISP and JTAG adapter with only a few parts. Unfortunately they both don't support high-voltage programming modes - the only possibility to 'rescue' AVR controllers when you e.g. disabled the reset or SPI fuses. The only widely available possibility was the STK500 from ATMEL. HVProg is a redesign of the original STK500 without all components of a development board. It is based on the original ATMEL schematics that are freely available on the net (e.g. at avrfreaks.net). The main target was to keep all nessecary functionality to programm all available AVR controllers in every programming mode that the STK500 supports.
- Compatible with AvrStudio
- Supports all AVR Controllers
- Parallel and serial High-Voltage-Programming
- Small and easy layout with only a few parts
- STK500 protocol
- Schematics and board layout available

|Build yourself a Witness Camera
The Witness Camera is an automated, self-recording surveillance camera, that uses a gigabyte-class flash card as recording media. It was designed because available surveillance solutions were too expensive or impractical for home use. The system it is built from a VGA CMOS colour camera, a passive-infrared (PIR) movement sensor, an ATmega32 processor and a 1GB SD-card.

|Cornell University ECE 4760 Designing with Microcontrollers Final Projects
These projects were produced in the last month of ECE 4760 each spring. The students were given the responsibility of choosing their project, then designing and building it. The microcontroller used is the Atmel ATmega series. The students must stay within a very limited monetary budget. See the assignment for further description. The project numbers are for identification and do not represent ranking. Send comments or questions to Bruce Land, Electrical and Computer Engineering.
