Teach or learn about digital frequency counters with this simple low cost meter electronic kit from MadLab. Useful tool for the electronics engineer. This kit comes with a pre-programmed PIC microcontroller. No programming is required.

Frequency Counter Kit Version 2

Build this digital frequency counter based on the PIC 16C54 microcontroller, with an excellent price to performance ratio.

Frequency counters are often used to calibrate other equipment. For example, a signal generator that doesn't have its own digital display. The meter will show the exact frequency being produced by the signal generator.

Texas Instruments manufactures a series of light sensors (e.g. TSL220) which produce an output frequency dependent on light intensity. They are very easy to use requiring just one external capacitor. A light meter combining one of these sensors with this frequency counter could accurately measure irradiance over a 3 decade range.

Attach a crystal microphone to the frequency counter and you have a guitar tuner. The frequency counter will display the exact frequency being played on a musical instrument. You can easily tune the instrument with reference to a table of note frequencies.

This frequency counter kit comes with a pre-programmed PIC, but if you like to learn about PIC source code, read and enjoy the free digital frequency counter construction article and source code provided by MadLab.
