DVM Project OverviewDigital Volt Meter is a Mini Project that I made as my project of the subject ‘Microprocessor Based Instrumentation System’. In this project I have used three major electronic components. They are PIC16F877A, LCD Display (16 X 2) and Low power Quad op-amp (LM324). PIC16F877A is used as an ADC module which converts the analog input into corresponding 10 bit digital output. It also provides enable and RS signals to the LCD display. LCD Display is used to display the converted digital binary data to decimal format so that user can easily understand the voltage. And finally Low power quad op-amp is used as buffer and as inverter. The DVM measures the voltages ranging from –50 V to +50 V. But PIC can operate only up to +5 V. So to measure the +50 V, the voltage divider is used. This divider divides the input voltage 10 times so that +50V input voltage is now becomes +5V at the PIC input.  Inside PIC a program is written which multiplies the converted digital value by 10 before sending it to the LCD display. A screen capture of a rough design of the project in Proteus 7.0 Professional is given below.PIC16F877APIC16F877A ADC ModuleThe A/D convertor module has eight inputs. The conversion of analog input results in a corresponding 10 bit digital output. The A/D module has four registers.
