This project is one of many I have undertaken to control my house using a set of rules, a web interface, a logger and many more components. This project is a light dimmer which has multiple control interfaces such an RS485 network, an infrared remote control, a proximity touch slider or touch sensor.
At the beginning this project was to buy a led sign to interface with my home automation network. This automation network display information like temperature, wind speed, humidity, etc. I had bought on EBay a LED Sign but when I received it I got a surprise! There was no serial port to program messages… After a couple of days, I look inside to see how it was built.
I got this idea by browsing the web. I found by hazard Mr. Bob Blick's page who make the first propeller clock. I began to check how can I build one myself. Base on AVR AT90S2313 I saw rapidly that my MCU must be clocked very fast to make all the calculations needed to light the leds at the right place. The speed is at 16Mhz, 4 times faster than Atmel's specifications. It's working without any problems.
All my source codes were taken from my personal projects.

with ICCAVR. You can find the header and source CRT files by downloading their compiler.
