Components used in filter must be exactly as on schematic, and better if they will be new, especially capacitors. Two 470ohm resistors that makes the ...
AVR acoustic spectrum analyzer, based on Atmega8 AVR microcontroller, operational amplifier, and few other components. Use any HD44780 compatible LCD or VFD, connect audio signal, and enjoy the effect :) You can build in this into your amplifier, pc, car-audio, or other device. On this moment device support following displays: 16*2, 20*2, 24*2, and 20*4. If you have one which this device not support, please contact me and i will try to adapt code for it. There are two pcb's which exactly fits behind the display, one for the 8*2 connector displays, and one for 16*1. You can attach a small keyboard to change display brightness (vfd also supported), change sensivity, choice the display effect. Settings are saved to the eeprom memory.
Use the eagle project files or PDF's to make a PCB, choose 16*1 or 8*2 connector depending on your display. There is also top layer with components values. See schematic for part list. You can connect a small keyboard to 5pin connector, there is no pcb for keyboard, just use 5 buttons and connect all to the ground.
Step 2: Program the AVR
First of all you need to program your AVR with code from the attachment, if you are using 16*2 display you need to flash the 16*2 version code, etc. Use any avr proggramer. You will need to setup fusebits as shown, for example on burn-o-mat, the avrdude GUI. You need to set the external crystal 16MHz, and activate the CKOPT fusebit. That's it.
