Design And Construction Of Resistor Colour Code Calculator

Download complete project materials on Design And Construction Of Resistor Colour Code Calculator Project from chapter one to five with reference


A resistor colour code calculator is an electronic system that calculates the resistance of a resistor simply by pressing the keys that correspond to the colour code. The system consist of five basic stages, the key board which accepts the input command, the encoder which receives the command from the key board and forms a corresponding binary code from the encoder, the BCD to 7 segment decoder which reverses the binary code from the memory and forms a comprehensive code which then displays by light emitting diode (LED) sensor. Input decimal signals from the input keys were connected to a corresponding binary code by the diode matrix (encoder) this code were then inverted and stored in the memory unit (flip-flop) the BCD to decimal 7-segment decoder is an I.C of the SN 74 family which then rearrange the BCD Code to 7-segment arrangement which is as follows: –

All the input keys are coloured to represent the colour of the resistor code (Black-White) When a key is pressed a code is formed which represent the code of that colour (e.g. Red = 2), To compute the resistance of a given resistor, the color of the first band is entered to the first channel which counts, decodes and display numeric value on the channel display digit. The second and the third follow the same sequence. The combine result of resistor of the three digits on the display gives the value of the resistor (i.e. digitally). Several test using various combinations of colour code carried out using both A.C and D.C gave a positive output of same values as calculated values.
