Digital Light Sensor Interfacing with ATmega16 and LED Display-Digital Output
The digital light sensor that we are going to interface with ATmega16 microcontroller is a dual output sensor i.e. the sensor gives both analog and digital output signal.
In this project, we will learn How to interface the digital output of the digital light sensor with AVR ATmega16 microcontroller. Here, we will detect the change in digital output of the digital light sensor and we will display the status of the sensor in a LED array. The microcontroller will read the digital output of the digital light sensor through any of its IO pin and it will display the status of the sensor in the 1X8 LED array as 0xff(all LEDs On) when the sensor senses light and 0x00(all LEDs Off) when the sensor do not senses light. Before doing experiment with digital output of digital light sensor, set the reference voltage through the on-board trimpot in digital light sensor. Now, turn On and Off a torch infront of the sensor and see the changes in the 1X8 LED array.
