A Combination Lock

This program impliments a combination lock. Two pushbuttons are given eight presses. The order of presses determines the combination. One button represents a '0', the other a '1'. There are 256 different binary combinations.

The correct sequence is held in location 0 of the EEPROM in the 16F84. If both pushbuttons are held down as power is supplied the program allows entry of a new combination. Holding the value in EEPROM means that the program can remember the sequence even if the power is turned off.

Actual operation of a lock is not programmed. Instead, after each eight presses, all 4 LEDs flash once. Five additional flashes occur if the sequence entered matches the correct combination After entry of a new combination, two additional flashes signal storage of the new value.

Reading and Writing EEPROM

The subroutines that read and store values in EEPROM were copied from the '84 data sheet. Notice the values that have to be set up before the read or write takes place. Notice also that the write takes 10 milliseconds to 'burn' the value in.

Other Applications

Having memory that doesn't disappear when the power is removed is quite handy. A clock program could be assigned a changable alarm time or even many alarm times. A countdown timer could remember one or many starting times. A few telephone numbers or whatever could be stored. Much of the coding involves just getting the data into program.

Entering a combination

In the subroutine 'entercode', carry is used along with the 'rrf' instruction to generate a binary number whose bits represent the combination. Notice how carry is first cleared and then set only if PB1 is not pressed. Since you only get to this point if one button is pressed and it is not PB1, it must be PB2 that is pressed. The resulting carry is pushed into the register 'combo' from the high order end. Eight presses and the first press ends up as the least significant bit, (LSB).

Your turn

You might not want the lights displayed when the new combination is entered. Can you make the changes?

256 combinations may not seem like many. How about adding a third or even forth button. How would you handle this?
