A micro-controller is an integrated circuit that consists of a processor and other devices like program memory, data memory, I/O ports, serial communication interface etc., it is also known as a chip that is integrated with a processor. A micro-controller does not require any external interfacing of support devices unlike a micro-processor.
Building engineering projects using microcontrollers will help you to understand their architecture, applications and its usages. Arduino Uno and 8051 micro-controller are the most widely used micro-controller of all as they are easily available and integrating them on to the system is relatively simple in comparison with others. Here we have compiled some of the good engineering projects that you can do with the micro-controller.
8051 micro-controller is the most widely used micro-controller on comparison with other chips. 8051 micro-controller comes with 64K(bytes)ROM, 128(bytes) RAM and other timers & I/O pins. The main reason for which this micro-controller became famous is because of its carefully chosen configuration that satisfies various needs of a large number of users. The whole configuration is designed to satisfy the needs of most of the programmers who work on automation projects.
Some of the projects that you can develop using 8051 micro-controller are:
Arduino is an open source platform which is available for everyone to use and develop various projects. Arduino projects can be a stand-alone project or they can communicate with the software running on a computer. Since this is an open source lots of industries use this particular technology to build projects on robotics, automation, authentication, security and smart devices etc. So building projects using this technology will make you aware of this technology and make you familiar with this platform
Some of the projects that you can develop using Arduino are:
