Parallel ADC needs lots of Pins of Microcontroller.

My Suggestion go to

CS5460 from Cirrus Logic..
MCP3202 from Microchip

Both Required 3 wires for interfacing with any Micro controller.

good idea Gurpreet312
serial adc's are slow but in this application it is pretty sufficient
exactly ICL7107 is a ac meter ic display value on 7-segments if u need a diagram i can provide u

see here afnan idea
see it for people discussion on ac voltmetr
and Abhinav.Chaurey now it is time to be happy for u i have found a circuit for Digital AC Voltmeter for u
it uses a digital ics but u can mange it now to display it on 7-seg or lcd
here is link for u
keep happy

Guys, it has been long since someone has posted here. But since I am doing the same project now, I need some help.
BTW, before posting the problem, can anyone tell me if it is fine to discuss about other controller like AVR/PIC?

Thanks majoka.
Actually I am currently making a project to measure AC voltage in range of 100s of Voltage (mostly 100-400v).
My circuit goes like this. (will upload the diagram in some time)

Power supply is a 9v Battery.
uC is ATmega8/16.

AV volt will come to a half wave diode rectifier. (for AC, P will go to diode and N will go to circuit's ground)
the output has a voltage divider (330k : 2k) which will scale it down to <2.5 v.
A Cap of 100uF parallel to 2k res.
A zener of 5v parallel to cap/2k res (just to protect uC's pin).

and the output of 2k res goes to uC's ADC.

uC uses internal 2.56v reference.

Now, as the input of ADC will keep varying, I take the ADC for around 5000 times (each will take max 200us). I pick up the max value and show it on display (3 seven seg, muxed).

Biggest issue is, the output will keep varying and move by +/- 8 volt.

I am fine if the scanned value is incorrect by some margin (5v) but cannot tolerate the varying value.

Adding more cap will slow down the rate of change and hence, change of voltage will take a few seconds to reflect.

And idea where the mistake can be?

I will upload the code as well. (would be written in BASCOM-AVR).

Any inputs are appreciated.

comment better after seeing the schematic

i am doing a countdown timer with 8051 for my project, unfortunately our professor had to take a leave of absence before he could teach us most of it.. can someone explain the .asm code of it for me?

I am doing a project for my schools wireless security system with cameras,sensors and spot lights using 8051 micro controller, could you help me out with the design and its source code.

hello! newbie here. i am kind of a guy who hates using ready - made existing libraries, so this helped a lot as i was trying to control and write to a character lcd display. however, i can't figure out how to set the cursor position. for example, i want to set it to the 5th column in the first row, so position 5. so according to the table, i am sending 10000101 on the 8 data lines of the lcd (register select pulled low). the cursor does not move there however. and i cant move the cursor left or right too. is it something wrong that i am doing? thank you.
