I am good at analog hardware design, but, bad at programming. Ok, with that out of the way.
I am looking for help programming either an atmel AT83c5111 or TINY13 or TINY26 to read resistance. basically, I would like it to read 1k-99k or 100k-1000k in 1k or 10k incraments respectfully. More less a wire mapper, I could put a 1k or 10k resistor connected to a standard rj11 or rj45 connector plug into a jack and connect this device at the network end to display the corresponding value of the resistor. I would use a 74HCT164 or MAX7219 to drive the 7-segment LED display and a 2313 to read the input and output the result. The device would need to display whole numbers only, eg. 1.7k would display 1, 4.9k would be 4...to compensate for the wire.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
