My Works – The Propeller Display using 8051 (Beta Test)

Weekend, when I’m free, surf in YouTube with my roommate, suddenly watch in this “Propeller Display”, it seem interested and I’m discuss with my roommate & decided use 8051 Microcontroller try to challenge it.

When we think to challenge it, immediately ride a motorcycle go to Electronic Street in Taichung, find & buy some material to do it, when we start to do it, we meet lot of material can’t find suitable for us, so we waste many time to think what material beside us can be replace.

The motor start spin up first time, we meet lot of problems like circuit broad not balance, hard in supply voltage to spinning circuit board, signal noise interference to circuit when it spin, rotate timing & program timing not match accuracy etc…

We use 3 days to research and solve some problems on it, remember on Saturday we research until 5:30am too excited we can’t stop it. =P

Here ours first test & success run.



Take a look to this video of ours work.
