Arduino StaffJanuary seventeenth, 2023

Whereas the standard laptop consumer doesn’t want to fret about it, these of us who overclock our computer systems or run them laborious prefer to know the way they’re performing. If, for instance, you overclock your CPU, you then most likely wish to keep watch over its temperature to make sure that it doesn’t exceed a secure stage. This multi-function device, designed by Mirko Pavleski, shows every kind of PC knowledge and even present information.

This Arduino LCD Information Panel works with open supply software program (LCD Smartie) operating on a Home windows PC. That software program screens many knowledge factors, together with CPU load, free disk area, reminiscence utilization, and way more. It may additionally obtain RSS information feeds and sync with different software program, like Winamp. The software program then sends the related knowledge to the Arduino LCD Information Panel system through a USB connection. The unit shows the information on a 16×2 character backlit LCD display screen and a pair of potentiometer knobs let the consumer flip by means of the information.

It doesn’t take a lot {hardware} to construct your individual Arduino LCD Information Panel. The one parts you want are an Arduino Nano, an Adafruit Commonplace LCD, two potentiometers, and some miscellaneous parts like resistors. The wiring is fairly easy and makers can use a protoboard or a breadboard.
