AVR Geiger Counter

April 13, 2011 By: admin Category: AVR, Detector, Digital, Microcontroller, Project, Sensor No Comments →

Eirik Taylor has built a Geiger counter, particle detector that measures ionizing radiation, using microcontroller AVR ATtiny2313 as main controller. The counter could display all sorts of data based on the counts from the Geiger tube on LCD display. The raw count data can be sent directly over a serial connection to a PC, thus […]

Radioisotope Analyzer

February 22, 2010 By: admin Category: Measurement, PIC, Project, Sensor No Comments →

This Radioisotope Analyzer project is built around PIC32MX360F512L. The device used for identifying and studying sources of ionizing radiation. This handheld laboratory instrument will processes the signal from a sensor called a “scintillation probe”, analyzes and stores the data, and produces a graphical output known as an “energy spectrum”. The location and amplitude of peaks […]
