There are several electronic devices which require a security lock for their protection. This article describes a way to build an electronic lock with a four-digit password. A keypad, interfaced with 8051 microcontroller (AT89C51), is used to enter the password. The password and its status are displayed on an LCD screen.
A 4x3 matrix keypad and a 16x2 LCD have been used here. Keypad and LCD are very commonly used input & output devices, respectively. A four digit predefined password is specified in the microcontroller AT89C51's program. If the entered password from keypad matches with this password, then the lock opens and a message is displayed on LCD. Also an output pin is made high to be used for further purpose.
A preset is a three legged electronic component which can be made to offer varying resistance in a circuit. The resistance is varied by adjusting the rotary control over it. The adjustment can be done by using a small screw driver or...
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen is an electronic display module and find a wide range of applications. A 16x2 LCD display is very basic module and is very commonly used in various devices and circuits. These modules are preferred over seven segments...

TINA-TI is a powerful circuit design and simulation tool. TINA-TI is ideal for designing, testing, and troubleshooting a broad variety of basic and advanced circuits, including complex architectures, without any node or number of device limitations.
TINA is an easy-to-use, powerful circuit simulation tool based on a SPICE engine. TINA-TI is a fully functional version of TINA, loaded with a library of TI macromodels plus passive and active models.
TINA-TI's new version 9 has changes from Version 7.0 in the following areas:
- Schematic Symbol Editor (useable with the Macro Wizard) is included, so you can create your own symbols for imported SPICE macromodels.
- Macros do not have to be from TI - you can import anyone's SPICE model now!
- Does not require active or non-linear components for analysis (so you can now run a circuit using just passives).
- TINA-TI includes Initial Condition and Nodeset components
- TINA-TI includes Linear and nonlinear controlled sources (VCVS, CCVS, VCCS, CCCS), and the Controlled Source Wizard.
- TINA-TI now allows WAV files to be used as stimulus (signal sources). You can play calculated waveforms on PC's multimedia system, and export calculated waveforms as a *.wav file.
- TINA-TI has Multi-core processor support; this along with other optimizations makes simulations run 2-20 times faster.
- Schematic file import/export in XML format
- Block Wizard included for making block diagrams
- TINA-TI has more SPICE models and example circuits included.
- Circuits developed in TINA-TI 9 will work with TINA Industrial version 9.
- TINA-TI Version 7.0 is forward compatible with Version 9, and version 9 supports saving schematics in version 7.0 format.
- Available in English, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Russian versions.
