Sealed Membrane 4X4 Button Pad For Microcontrollers

by realfinetime  |  in Switch Matrix at  23:48

          Sealed Membrane 4X4 Button Pad with Sticker is amazing by its beautiful construction and easiness in handling. Switches are arranged in awesome colour combinations as shown below. It is widely used in many electronic appliances. It is very simple and is very easy for beginners to hack it. The same keypad designed by press button switches in breadboard will also work. But it will take a lot of time to complete the circuit and error checking will become difficult. Sealed membrane 4*4 button pad can easily connected to arduino using connector socket provided at the bottom.

          Since it is a 4 *4 button key pad, it has eight output lines. Output lines are connected to a socket through a flexible sheet. This makes this key pad different. Switches are arranged as a matrix as shown in the following diagram.
          K, L, M, N, O, P, Q and R are the eight output lines from the matrix. Corresponding K, L, M, N, O, P, Q and R pins in the output lines from 4*4 button key pad is shown in the following image.
1 controlls the current flow through K and O.
2 controlls the current flow through K and P.
3 controlls the current flow through K and Q.
A controlls the current flow through K and R.

4 controlls the current flow through L and O.
5 controlls the current flow through L and P.
6 controlls the current flow through L and Q.
B controlls the current flow through L and R.

7 controlls the current flow through M and O.
8 controlls the current flow through M and P.
9 controlls the current flow through M and Q.
C controlls the current flow through M and R.

* controlls the current flow through N and O.
0 controlls the current flow through N and P.
# controlls the current flow through N and Q.
D controlls the current flow through N and R.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

All the circuits, published in this blog is only after testing and getting proper results in my private lab. When you try these circuits, you should check the supply voltage, polarity of components, presence of childrens nearby and shorts in the circuits. This website will not be responsible for any harm happened to you or your components caused by your carelessness.
