@Antedeluvian @Steve: And altough you are commited to the Arduino, I should mention that the PSoC3/4/5 has it as a built in fuction.

I seem to recall that there is also a Neo-Pixel library available for the PSoC devices, but I don't know where you go to find it.

Hierarchical Menu Structure

A standard 16x2 LCD display with white text on a blue background, ordered through Amazon UK

At the outset this eeems like a simple thing to do, but take care. Changes in approach often may mean rewriting your driver from scratch. After working with a customer who chagend their mind frequently I created an approach to allow a systematic method to create hierarchical menus and how to display dynamic data within that.


I wrote it up in a Circuit Cellar article "hierarchical menus in embedded systems" published in issue #160, November 2003. Circuit Cellar's business model requires you to pay a small amount, and for articles of that age you have to download the whole magazine. Let just say that the code was written for the Rabbit micro, but is all in C and should be easily portable.

Debounce

 In hindsight, I would look to use a better filter on the encoder outputs and do away with the chip.

 

A really good place to start with debounce is to read Jack Ganssle's series on the topic. They have been through several revisions do I may be pointing at some of the older stuff

Jack focuses on software, but there are other techniques. A pullup resistor with a capacitor works well (preferably followed by a schmitt trigger) for slow responses although you should be aware that when you close the switch a short spike of high current will flow through the switch. You can limit that with a small series resistor. A cross coupled NAND or NOR gate combination will work if you have a changeover switch. Also if you use a non-inverting buffer (like 2 x 74HC04 in series or a MC14050) and connect the output to the input by a 10K resistor and also use a changeover switch you will have a debounced output.

Other manufacturers also make debounce chips. Maxom does the MAX812 and several others. See this app note.

Micrel does this one.

And altough you are commited to the Arduino, I should mention that the PSoC3/4/5 has it as a built in fuction.

I seem to remember this being a topic of discussion on the Connecting Edge. Perhaps Martin can rescussitate it.

Hi Steve -- this looks like an amazing project -- I hope one day to see it with my own eyes -- with regard to the links to interesting sites and videos, I have to say that I love the christmas tree one -- wow!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
