The reed switch is an electrical switch operated by an applied magnetic field. It consists of a pair of contacts on ferrous metal reeds in a hermetically sealed glass envelope. They are often used in alarm systems, on bicycles for wheel speed measurement and in many other devices. Here we will say few words about reed switch and show you very interesting video how they are made
It is well known that many gas molecules can absorb radiation in the infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. When infrared radiation is incident on the gas, the energy states of atoms vibrating in the molecules change in discrete steps when the wavelength of the infrared matches the molecules natural frequencies or resonances. Put simply, the vibrations of atoms held in their chemical bonds increase when excited by light of the right wavelength.
Light .Visible light is an electromagnetic wave in range of 400 to 700nm. This is just a small part of all existing wavelengths. The light that we see is not one wavelength but a combination of many wavelengths.
The spectral power distribution - SPD shows the precise dependence of the color in function of light source in the form of diagram that represents energy at each wavelength in the visible spectrum.
For communication with outside world and other components microcontroller uses many different kinds of communication. Here you will find detailed explanation on how each of these communication protocols. Details of principles how the work, what you must know before you can use them. And when finished here you can go to tutorial sections for specific family and get complete example codes and detailed description on specific microcontroller family. These are UART, I2C, SPI, USB…
Basic functions that every device does are measurement and control. That is why it is important to know how to properly measure something and what sensor to use.. Here you will find explanations on these topics to help you with implementing hardware for your microcontroller project.
As previously mentioned Control is one of most important things in every project. Weather you need to control some DC motor using PWM, timer circuits with NE555, Using servo motors, Using PID regulation or any kind or regulation you will find useful articles here describing basic term from this are that you need to know before you can start making your project. Here are mentioned only few of areas this category of www.electronics-base.com covers. PLL frequency regulation… list is endless. When you get the basics you can get example codes written in microcontroller C compiles on tutorials page or find complete project with source code and all documentation in projects section of the site.
General descriptions not fitted in any specific category from field of electronics.
General explanations about microcontroller specific topics. What are GPIO pins, TTL levels, Reset circuit.. If you have just started to work with microcontrollers and do not have much knowledge about them than here are useful texts to read before you go to tutorials or complete projects section of www.electronics-base.com and continue learning about world of intelligent electronics.
