Simple Temperature Measurement and Control
The circuit described here and its accompanying BASCOM software arose from the need to control the temperature in a laminator. The laminator does include its own temperature controller, but it was not suitable for the author‘s purposes (making printed circuit boards using a thermal transfer method ). The result is based around an ATmega48 microcontroller with a 2-by-16 LCD panel and a rotary encoder.
