how to save float value EEPROM

Hi This is Eabul. i want to save data to eeprom from press button . when TemperatureUp button press. increase float data like as 0.01> 0.02--------30.10> 30.61 and this value save to eeprom. and when TemperatureDown button press . decrease float data like as 30.60>30.59-----29.10 and update minus value eeprom and increase and decrease valud view lcd display . but when press button save int number not float. and show me lcd display int value. please help how to write and read float value from eeprom. press button. hear my code. //For Display #include // 3wire display LiquidCrystal595 lcd(4, 3, 2); // DS, ST_CP, SH_CP //For time #include #include RTC_DS1307 RTC; //for humidity #include "DHT.h" DHT dht; //for stor tempereratur and humidity #include int SetHumidity; int HumidityUp = 10; // switch up is at pin 10 int HumidityDown = 11; // switch down is at pin 11 float fix = 0.01; float settemp; // make a variable called temp float TemperatureUp = 12; // switch up is at pin 12 float TemperatureDown = 13; // switch down is at pin 13 //result view int led = 0; // led is at pin 0 void setup() { //For timer Wire.begin(); RTC.begin(); //For welcome screen lcd.begin(16,4); lcd.setCursor(0,0); lcd.print("Welcome Elab"); delay(2000); lcd.clear(); //for dht-11 pin setup dht.setup(A1); // data pin 2 } void loop() { //For tempererature up / down float temp[3]; getTemp(temp); float tempererature = temp[1]; settemp = EEPROM.read(1); // read the settemp on the eeprom if(digitalRead(TemperatureUp) == 1 ) { settemp+=fix; settemp++; EEPROM.write (1, settemp); /* write the most recent settemp in eeprom data stoage*/ } else {} if(digitalRead (TemperatureDown) == 1) { settemp -= fix; settemp--; EEPROM.write (1, settemp); /* write the most recent settemp in eeprom data stoage*/ } if (tempererature >= settemp) { digitalWrite (led, 1); } else { digitalWrite (led, 0);} //else { }; lcd.setCursor(0,0); lcd.print("T:"); lcd.print(tempererature); lcd.setCursor(8,0); lcd.print ("ST"); lcd.print (settemp); lcd.print((char)223); //End tempererature controll //For humidity up / down SetHumidity = EEPROM.read(2); int humidity = dht.getHumidity(); if(digitalRead(HumidityUp ) == 0 ) {SetHumidity++ ; } // add one to the settemp else {} if(digitalRead (HumidityDown) == 0) { SetHumidity--; } // Reduse settemp else { }; lcd.setCursor (0, 1); lcd.print ("CH:"); lcd.print (humidity); lcd.print ("%"); lcd.setCursor (8, 1); lcd.print ("SH:"); lcd.print (SetHumidity); lcd.print ("%"); delay (1); // wait 100 milliseconds EEPROM.write (2, SetHumidity); /* write the most recent settemp in eeprom data stoage*/ //End tempererature controll controll } //analog temperature void getTemp(float * t) { const int analogPin = 0; // replace 0 with analog pin const float invBeta = 1.00 / 3380.00; // replace "Beta" with beta of thermistor const float adcMax = 1023.00; const float invT0 = 1.00 / 298.15; // room temp in Kelvin int adcVal, i, numSamples = 5; float K, C, F; adcVal = 0; for (i = 0; i < numSamples; i++) { adcVal = adcVal + analogRead(analogPin); delay(100); } adcVal = adcVal/5; K = 1.00 / (invT0 + invBeta*(log ( adcMax / (float) adcVal - 1.00))); C = K - 273.15; // convert to Celsius F = ((9.0*C)/5.00) + 32.00; // convert to Fahrenheit t[0] = K; t[1] = C; t[2] = F; return; }

How to use AT28C64B? Answered

I am making an 8-Bit Computer for a science fair project. I have everything working, but there is one problem. Everything action has to be done manually. It could work this way but I want to be able to write a program, press a button, and the computer will do the rest. To do this I have to use a control matrix to control the Input/output of each device to the bus. To do this I will use an EEPROM. However, I am using TTL logic and the AT28C64B is CMOS, but it has TTL and CMOS logic compatible Inputs and Outputs. When I programed it, I did WE low OE high and CE low. When I read from it I had WE high, OE low and CE low. When I had CE plugged into nothing which I think is High-Z, I noticed just a brightness difference between 0 and 1 on the LEDs. When I plugged the Chip Enable(CE) into ground it made every LED the same brightness so that you could not tell the difference. For my TTL logic I need either voltage or ground to control 1 or 0. Am I doing something wrong? Please help me! I really need the help.

MPLAB and PIC16F628A, basic EEPROM functions wont work

Hello all Ive got a query about the simulator in MPLAB.  I'm using a PIC16F628A-IP and Ive written a couple of subs to run the EEPROM functions, but when I try and run the program in the simulator and observe the registers, I'm noticing that EECON1 is not accepting bit changes, and when reading from the EEPROM, i get as far as getting the correct value into W register (MOVFW EEDATA), then the next step, simply a RETURN command, for no reason wipes the W register back to 0 and hence the routine always returns a 0 Can somebody have a look and see whats going wrong, this is one of the easiest routines to write as there are so many examples on the web, Ive even used code straight from Microchip's Code Library and that didnt work either, its driving me MAD!!! All I am trying to do with the following code is simply read the EEPROM contents of address 05, display the returned contents to PORTB, wait a second, then increment the contents by 1 and resave into the EEPROM at address 05, so by rights on power up I should see FF then 00 then 01 then 02, etc, incrementing every second, on PORTB....I'm a bit of a stickler for custom keywords so sorry if its a bit confusing, makes perfect sense to me of course! ;  GENERIC PROGRAMMING HEADER  LIST P=16F628A   ; DETERMINE CORE TYPE  INCLUDE "P16F628A.INC" ; INCLUDE DEFAULT ASSEMBLY FILE FOR THIS CORE  ORG 00H     ; START PROGRAM AT LINE 0  RADIX HEX    ; ASSUME HEX UNLESS SPECIFIED  ERRORLEVEL -302  ; NO BANK WARNINGS DURING ASSEMBLY   ;  SET BURN CONIFGURATION FOR NO WDT AND INTERNAL OSC AT 4MHZ  __CONFIG _CP_OFF & _WDT_OFF & _PWRTE_ON & _BODEN_OFF &_INTRC_OSC_NOCLKOUT & _MCLRE_OFF & _LVP_OFF ;  CONSTANTS AND VARIABLES OPT  EQU 81H  ; OPTION REGISTER NN  EQU 02AH ; GENERAL N REGISTER FOR COUNTING DELAYS XX  EQU 02BH ; GENERAL X REGISTER FOR COUNTING DELAYS YY  EQU 02CH ; GENERAL Y REGISTER FOR COUNTING DELAYS TEMP EQU 02DH ; GENERAL TEMPORARY FOLDER 1 TMP  EQU 02EH ; GENERAL TEMPORARY FOLDER 2 FLAGS EQU 020H ; MISCELLANEOUS PROGRAM SPECIFIC FLAGS N  EQU 021H X  EQU 022H ; GENERAL TEMP STORES Y  EQU 023H ;  CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS #DEFINE   BANK0     BCF       STATUS,RP0          ; Sel Bank 0 #DEFINE   BANK1     BSF       STATUS,RP0          ; Sel Bank 1 #DEFINE   READNVM CALL READ #DEFINE   WRITENVM CALL WRITE #DEFINE   W10MS  CALL DELAY #DEFINE   W1S  CALL DELAY1S ;----------------------------------------------------------------- ;  INITIALISE MICRO ;----------------------------------------------------------------- INIT   BANK1   CLRF  TRISB ; PORT B DEFINED ALL OUTPUTS   MOVLW 0FFH   MOVWF TRISA ; PORT A ALL INPUTS   BANK0 ;  SET TO MIMIC 16F84 BY TURNING OFF COMPARATOR   MOVLW 07H   MOVWF CMCON ;  PURGE GENERAL RAM FILES   CLRF NN   CLRF XX   CLRF YY   CLRF TEMP    CLRF TMP    CLRF FLAGS   CLRF N   CLRF X   CLRF Y   CLRF PORTA   CLRF PORTB   CLRF OPT   CLRF INTCON   ;------------------------------------------------------------------- ;  MAIN PROGRAM ;------------------------------------------------------------------- MAIN; ORIGIN   MOVLW 05   READNVM   MOVWF PORTB   W1S   MOVLW 05   MOVWF EEADR   MOVF PORTB,W   INCF W,1   MOVWF EEDATA   WRITENVM   GOTO  MAIN ;--------------------------------------------------------------------------- ;  END OF MAIN PROGRAM BODY ;---------------------------------------------------------------------------   GOTO FINISH  ; PROGRAM LOOP FALLOUT ;--------------------------------------------------------------------------- ;  SUBROUTINES ;--------------------------------------------------------------------------- ; LIST OF AVAILABLE SUBS: ; DELAY  = 10mS DELAY ; DELAY1S  = 1 sec DELAY ; WRITE  = WRITE TO EEPROM, MUST BE LOADED WITH EEDATA AND EEADR B4 ENTRY ; READ  = READ FROM EEPROM ADDRESS HELD IN W BEFORE ENTRY, RETURN RESULT IN W ;  10mS DELAY DELAY       MOVLW 0AH   MOVWF XX OUTER   MOVLW 0C7H   MOVWF YY INNER   NOP         NOP         DECFSZ  YY,1         GOTO    INNER                 DECFSZ  XX,1         GOTO    OUTER   NOP   NOP   NOP   NOP   NOP   NOP   NOP         RETURN DELAY1S   ; 100x10mS DELAYS   MOVLW  064H   MOVWF NN D1L  W10MS   DECFSZ NN,1   GOTO D1L    RETURN   WRITE       BANK1         CLRF EECON1                        BSF EECON1,WREN            ; enable write   W10MS   W10MS   BCF INTCON,GIE         MOVLW H'55'                ; magic sequence         MOVWF EECON2                       MOVLW H'AA'                          MOVWF EECON2                       BSF EECON1,WR   W10MS   W10MS             eeloop BTFSC EECON1,WR            ; wait for WR to go low         GOTO eeloop                ; not yet         BCF EECON1,WREN                    BCF INTCON,GIE           ; clear the interrupt flag         BANK0   W10MS   W10MS         RETURN READ BCF EECON1,WREN   MOVWF EEADR                ; set up eeprom address from W         BANK1   BSF EECON1,RD              ; set the read bit         BANK0   MOVFW EEDATA              ; return value in W         RETURN   ;  PROGRAM ENDS FINISH   END Note, this will probably make more sense if its copied and pasted into an ASM in MPLAB, as the tab stops and comments become more apparent THanks for looking

Need help trying to get the Arduino working with the RGB Matrix (with backpack) and an EEPROM chip.

Hi everyone, first question on instructables! I have an Arduino Deumilanove, a Sparkfun RGB Matrix with backpack, and an EEPROM chip (24LC256). I have the Arduino all hooked up to the matrix and have been able to mess around with some basic images and colors, but I have a lot of questions. So far, to display letters I have been setting up sections of code that light up each LED separately. I know there has to be a more efficient way to do this and was wondering how? Also, I have an EEPROM chip that is setup with the Arduino and Matrix but can't figure out how to use it. I have looked at the code for it on the Arduino website and I can't really figure out how it all works. So basically, here's what I want to be able to do: - Store the alphabet in the EEPROM - Be able to recall letters from the EEPROM - Display marquee messages Thanks in advance!

How can I make a homebrew EEPROM programmer?

I need an EEPROM burner that could  erase/burn the 27CXXX EEPROMS/EPROMS/PROMS.  I know through using the Propeller that I can write to the 24C256 through the Propeller, but could someone please help me in building a homebrew EEPROM burner?

starting circuit for programmable sequence, for flashing LED?

Hi- I am interested in suggestions for starting points to build a programable flashing LED.  The intervals of dark/light should be configurable, kind of like morse code.  But not subject to what I recall as requirements for Morse- dashes are 2x as long as dots, or something- duration will vary for both.  Maximum total length of sequence is 10 seconds. There are a lot of flashing LED circuit Instructables, some very old and referencing 7 yr old chips- unsure if I can get those chips. In an ideal world, when I am done, I could have multiple EEPROMs that I could switch out to configure the flash sequence I wish.  One sequence per EEPROM.  Or another means to accomplish this. My background:  I can solder a little, I can program and shell script a little, I have not much idea about electronics at all. Thank you for pointers to a jumping-off spot for me!

The catch is I need a programmable chip so I can have pre-set outputs on the LEDs. I'd need something that can be rewritten (like an EEPROM) I've been thinking abuot using a PIC or a BASIC Stamp but I'd though I'd do a bit of research first.

The Propeller Platform Module (pictured below) includes an 80Mhz, 160 MIPS Parallax Propeller microcontroller, 32kb of EEPROM with space for a second EEPROM, 5V and 3.3V Voltage Regulators and the pin sockets to add additional Gadget Gangster Platform modules like the LCD UI Module or the Prototyper Module.All Gadget Gangster Platform Modules utilize .1" pin spacing and are breadboard compatible. Here's a little video demonstration of the LCD UI and Propeller Modules: What is the Gadget Gangster Platform?The Gadget Gangster Platform is a lot like the Arduino with a few improvements on the basic idea;-Modules (a.k.a. shields) can be connected to each other on top and bottom. For example, you might have a Propeller module in the middle, an LCD UI on the top, and a prototyper on the bottom. We've got a few initial modules to start, and we'll continue to expand on the selection with more modules and microcontrollers.-Pin spacing is .1". This makes the Platform compatible with breadboards, and it lets you use Platform modules in combination with other project boards.-The board footprint is 3.8" x 2.5", which is the same footprint as ExpressPCB's MiniBoard service. This makes it easier to add your own custom module.-Because they're featured in Jon Williams' Spin Zone column in Nuts and Volts, they're well documented. The Propeller Platform Module will be the basis for many of projects described in his upcoming columns and the LCD UI module will featured in his September '09 column. -Platform Modules are licensed under the MIT license (essentially public domain), giving you the flexibility to use the design in commercial products or anything else without restriction.[/list]I'm super-excited about these new project boards. There's more info on Gadget Gangster but if you have any questions, you can just reply to this thread.

How to build a simple CPU from 74XX Logic Chips? Answered

Hi everyone! I'm wondering what are some good resources to learn how to build a simple programmable CPU from 74XX logic chips.  I'd like to build one where I use DIP switches to program the CPU.  I don't have an EEPROM/EPROM/PROM burner, so using those are out of the question.  I've seen some CPU's already that run an internet server, but they are too complicated/expensive to build and understand.  I want to learn how a CPU can be built and the principles behind it.   I have about 150 74XX chips, including a 74LS181 ALU unit.  I also have enough capacitors and resistors for the project. Thank you!

What to do with old robot? / Cybot

I found an old robot that was part of one of those 'build it yourself' magazine series. I was gonna eBay it but found there was actually quite alot of cool stuff in there so I've compiled a list and I'm gonna make an instructable using some of the parts, But I need ideas / help.Here are (the best) parts.2x sets of ultrasonic emitters / receivers2x LDRs large2x smaller photoresistors (used for line following)2x set of inrfa red emitter& reciever leds2x bright white leds + various others2x 9v motors & gear housingsLCD display 5cm squreeepromspeed controllers selector switches etcand a load of pre programmed processors that can't be reused.some more technical details here

Attempting to create tiny, wearable, covert, simple button click counter for behavioral mod

Hi all, I've been searching both this forum and the internet in general and strangely have not come across what I'm looking to do even though to me it seems very simple. Here are the specifications/requirements of the device that I am trying to create: -extremely tiny form factor (ideally a ring sized device but I'll settle for a thin bracelet) -unobtrusive/inconspicuous (I guess a thin bracelet that could hide under a sleeve might be best) -battery powered/untethered (This is essential. The device would be useless if depended on a connection to a computer or wall socket) -battery life must last a full day -data logged is just a simple time/day stamp that would indicate when a button was clicked by the wearer      (wearer would manually click the button during the day when certain thoughts came up for him/her)       This requirement indicates that the micro controller chosen would need a clock built in and        some kind of storage - be able to upload the data to a computer I did my preliminary research considering these requirements and I came up with the following electronic components that might work: - teensy 3 (has real time clock and 2K EEPROM which should be plenty of memory for storing date stamps) - ulog (1MB of usable space across 3 analog channels, couldn't find anything about a built in clock) - Pro Micro - 3.3V/8MHz (not sure about built in real clock  but storage is 32K flash space) - OpenLog (wasn't clear about how much built in storage and didn't see any build in real time clock) These are the best I could find. If anyone has better suggestions please let me know? My idea is to connect a Mini Push Button Switch to one of the digital inputs on one these micro controllers/data loggers and write a simple sketch that records the time the button was pushed in a MMDDYYhhmm format (10 bytes per click). To power any of these micro controllers/data loggers I was planning to use a Coin Cell Battery - 12mm. I was going to sew the micro controllers/data loggers on one side of a thin piece of material that would serve as a bracelet and sew the battery on the other side. Although I'm not sure how to fix the battery to the cloth and how to connect it to the micro controllers/data loggers. I'm guessing I could find some kind of battery holder for the 12mm cell battery? Other Questions about my assumptions: Will I have enough storage left over on the flash space or EEPROM to store the data click after the sketch code has been loaded in? Will a watch battery provide enough energy to run this device all day? Is the Coin Cell Battery - 12mm the correct external power source for this project? I encourage any feed back, criticism, comments, help of any kind to move me along with this preparation so that I can move forward and purchase the parts I need. Thanks! Michael

Getting started with PICAXE? Answered

I want to get started using PICAXE microcontrollers after using both PICs and AVRs before, and I have already learned the BASIC language, it's pretty easy, as the name would suggest. My main interests with them are that they can be easily programmed with two resistors and a 3-pin serial cable, they are easy to program and have ADC inputs, and also audio functionality. What would be a good place to get started, I was looking at the 08M, but it looks like it was recently discontinued and replaced by the M2. The reason I don't really want to move on is because I have just learned the pinouts and functions for the 08M, and also a lot of projects here on instructables utilize it. I was looking at building the tic tac tunes.I also noticed that it has the markings "12F683", so does this mean I could just buy a pic 12F683 chip and use it as a picaxe? Are they identical or is there a subtle difference in them. I also noticed that the audio functionality seems to be very limited in that the smaller chips only do polyphonic notes, and the mid sized chips only do mp3 from eeprom, and only the very large 40 pin chips do audio. What is the smallest chip that supports a full range sound file. Memory shouldn't be too much of a problem as the clip is only about a second long, so one with 256k should be fine, as long as it features internal audio. My last question is what should I buy, as in chips (universal and common experimentation chips), and any other accessories I may need. By the looks of things, all I need is the chip, a headphone socket, resistors, and a download cable.

Is there a way to save data onto an ATTINY85 chip, separate from your C program?

Hey everyone, this is my first post and I am not quite sure how to word this, so please bear with me. :) Here is the  ATTINY85 datesheet Basically, the long and short of it is, I made a simple USB HID Programmable Key-stroker Device. I used Macetech's capslocker for inspiration on the circuit design and then wrote my own program in C. Capslocker Design (Basically this design exactly except I have also added two zener diodes for voltage regulation on both USB data lines and a programming header) : http://macetech.com/blog/?q=node/46 However, instead of just sending Capslock on and off (like the Capslocker), this one allows you to send strings of text, combinations of keys, can switch to a mouse and I am currently adding a wireless receiver and RF remote trigger the device with the press of a button to mess with my boss. Currently, if I want to change the keystrokes or mouse movements I have to recompile and then burn the new software onto the ATtiny85 device. Instead, I am looking for an easier way to go about modifying the keystrokes that are saved on the device. Is there anyway to save data to a specific part of the ATTINY that would not require recompiling each time I wanted to update the recorded keystrokes? Or maybe a way to save a text file onto an ATTINY85 device that the C program could load? If not could this be done with an EEPROM? I have programming experience but I am reallllly green when it comes to AVR stuff, so I am not even sure what I should be looking for to accomplish this. Any nudge in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks for reading and I love this community I have been lurking for quite some time and your posts have helped me quite a bit!

24 x 24 LED Matrix Project

I would like to share with you all an awesome project and some doubts and questions related to the same. This is a 24 x 24 LED Matrix project taken from here. All the data is taken from the same link. 24×24 LED dot matrix -->   This is pretty old circuit but I found it interesting to describe here. 24×24 LED display is formed by using 9 8×8 Dot LED matrix displays, that are connected to AT90S2313 MCU. MCU scans an indicator lines in series. Special PC program is written which allows drawing images on screen and transfer them via COM port to device. You can send images in series what gives an animation effect.   Circuit is was built using obsolete AT90S2313 MCU which can be replaced by Attiny2313 MCU with minor modifications of firmware. To make program work you event don’t need to connect device to computer COM port. You can store images in other master MCU EEPROM memory Each received byte from UART is immediately sent to 8 LEDs, second byte to next 8 LEDs and so on. Bytes has to be sent one by one without delay. USART is working at 115200 baud, 8bits, no parity. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE PROBLEMS >1>I really dont know if the circuit is good or not tell me if it is going to work. >2>I cant get 8x8 dot matrix displays so i am going to normal leds to a 24x24 one. >3>I have never worked with bus before (the bold red lines in the circuit) so i dont know how to connect it. >4>The schems are segmented i am finding it hard to figure out how to connect some of the segments. >5>Also i need to know how to hook it up to my pc. >6>I have never done programming so i need to know how to program the ic.
