Speed control of DC motor with 8051

Hey friends this is my 3rd year BE project " Speed control of DC motor"which i could like to share with you .In this you will learn how to interface LCD,hex keypad and motor .The code is written in assembly      
to simplify I have first explained separately LCD interfacing hex keypad interfacing ,motor interfacing with L293D 

so Lets get Started !!!

Step 1: Materials required

Picture of Materials required
*Hex keypad
*DC motor 

I assume u have basic knowledge of 8051 programming in assembly

Step 2: Interfacing DC motor -L293D

Picture of interfacing DC motor  -L293D
L293D is a dual H-Bridge motor driver, So with one IC we can interface two DC motors which can be controlled in both clockwise and counter clockwise direction we can control speed of each dc motor by giving PWM to enable pin .L293D has output current of 600mA and peak output current of 1.2A per channel. Moreover for protection of circuit from back EMF ouput diodes are included within the IC. The output supply (VCC2) has a wide range from 4.5V to 36V, which has made L293D a best choice for DC motor driver.

    As you can see in the circuit, three pins are needed for interfacing a DC motor (A, B, Enable). If you want to control speed enable pin is connetcted to the PWM pin of microcontroller . I have connected only one motor and  used the enable pin to contol the speed of dc motor.

This is an interesting circuit and well made instructable. Note that what you are controlling is the power, not speed, however. For a future development consider adding a feedback loop that measures actually controls the speed.

thanx man........yeah you are right by varying PWM power is controlled
