Project tested and working perfectly

Digital Lock Using AT89C2051 with LCD and Keypad - Assembly

A Brief Description:
This project is a rewrite of previously made project "Digital Code Lock using keypad and LCD"
I got many requests from student's side who want this project in Assembly language. So i spent some time making this project.

You will find working of this project same as that of original project. Nothing has been changed as such.

Its a simple project with efficient hacking prevention from Brute Force etc. The basic user lock is of 5 Digits and Master Lock is of 10 digits so its not easy for an intruder to break the lock unless you keep the code simple.
The input is taken from a 4x3 Keypad (please see the schematic for more information) and Display the user input on a 2x16 LCD. A pin is assigned as output for activating and deactivating the lock. For demonstration i have connected an LED to that pin.

User Side working:
The user has two options either he/she can use its own 5 digit code or use the default 5 digit code. If user has to do setup his own code, then he has to enter "12345" and press '#'. After this.. controller will ask for 10 Digit master password which is preprogrammed in the controller. Entering master lock, user can enter the new 5 digit code for the lock and press '#' to save it.

Using the Keypad:
Keypad has 12 keys (4x3) starting from 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,*,0,# (please see the schematic for layout). Numeric keys are used for entering numbers. '*' is used as the Cancel key and '#' is used as the Enter key.

Just down the project and go through the code yourself. If you need help, just post a question. You can also look into our tutorial section for keypad tutorial.

@navig, This project does not store password in non-volatile memory. It just stores the password in RAM and if controller resets password also resets. You can add an EEPROM to add saving password to EEPROM.
