This is a physical hit counter.It is used to count page-hits on the website instead of using software only.The counter will be connected to rs232 port through a few of electronic components that performs as a counter driver and power supply circuit. The circuit is based on MAX7219 and 7-segment common cathode LED display x 8 digits. MAX7219 is a 8-Digit LED Display Drivers with serial interface which makes it ideal for this project and really easy to implement.
I will sure build one of these for myself, with some minor tweaks, it will look great on my desk 🙂 . I will write about it in a following article so Subscribe by RSS or email to get the news from this blog.
