Funktionsgenerator mit dem ESP32, Display und Gehäuse - [Teil 3] - AZ-Delivery

After we added an amplifier in the second part with which you can set both the amplitude and the offset, we no longer want to carry out the operation via the serial monitor, but directly on the device.

For example, the LCD1602 display Keypad Shield, which has an LCD display with two lines A 16 characters and buttons for operation, is suitable for this. This Shield was designed for the Microcontroller Arduino. So that it can be used simply with the ESP32, we replace the ESP32 Devkit CV4 from the first part with the Board ESP32 D1 R32, which is the same as an ArduinoUno has created. So we can put the Shield directly on it. However, examples will not work because the ESP32 has different IO pins than the Arduino. In addition, it should be noted that the inputs of the ESP32 can only tolerate 3.3 V.

The illustrations show the pin assignment of the ESP32 D1 R32 board and the occupancy of the LCD-Kypad Shield. This only includes those pins that are also used.

Since all LCD pins are used as inputs of the LCD controller, we do not need to worry about the tension, since the entrances also work safely with 3.3 V.

It looks a little different with the button connection. Depending on the button, it delivers a value between 0 and 5V. On the Shield, the output is connected to the +5V connection via a 2 Kohm resistance. If we now solder a resistance of 3.9 KOHM from the button connection and the 0V connection, the maximum voltage at this connection is only 5V * 3900 / (2000 + 3900) = 3.3 V. This resistance can be seen on the illustration.

We have another problem with the GPIO12 connection. This must be on 0V during the boat process, otherwise the operating voltage for the flash memory will be switched to 1.8V. Here again a resistance of 10 kohm between GPIO12 and GND. We better solder this resistance to the ESP32 D1 R32 board, since this problem can also occur with other Arduino Shields.

Sketch to download:

The part for the function generator and for operation via the serial interface is identical to the sketch from part 1. What's new is the operation via the button on the display Keypad Shield. In particular, the evaluation of the buttons requires special attention.

Image 4: Tension divider for the keys on the LCD Keypad Shield and on the left the ESP32 D1 R32 board with the parallel resistance

The voltage divider is designed in such a way that at 5V the difference between the individual voltages is about 1V. However, since we have installed the 3900-ohm protective resistance so that the outcome never reaches more than 3.3 V, this difference is reduced. But the problem is getting bigger. The ESP32 D1 R32 Board has a 1kOhm resistance in parallel to the GPIO2 input so only the GPIO0 has to be placed on GND to flash. The tension difference is reduced by this resistance. The table shows the tensions that you get from the buttons (without parallel resistance, with 3900 ohms in parallel, and with 3900 ohms and 1000 ohms in parallel.

Button Without parallel resistance 3900 Ohm 3900 ohms and 1000 ohms
No button 5.00 V 3.30 V 2.20 V
Select 3.60 V 2.60 V 2.04 V
Leaf 2.50 V 1.97 V 1.10 V
Down 1.60 V 1.4 V 0.89 V
Up 0.70 V 0.66 V 0.52 V
Right 0.00 V 0.00 V 0.00 V

In tests, it has been shown that the 5V voltage is not very precise. With an external power supply, the voltage was 4.4V, with the supply via USB between 5.0V on a computer connection and 5.2V on a USB charger.

If you were now working with fixed threshold values ​​for each button, would the device work or not? In order to ensure a secure function, the operating voltage is therefore determined without pressing the button when switched on. The medium voltages per button can then be calculated from this. Since the query is smaller when evaluating the key, you get the best result if you add half of the distance to the next higher average to get the threshold value for the medium voltage.

The housing

In order to increase usability, we have designed housing that can be made with a 3D printer. The housing is structured so that all parts can be accommodated in it.

Image 5: housing from the 3D printer

On the ground, you can see the rectangular recess for the display and the openings for the buttons. On the right next to it the two holes for the potentiometers. On the right wall, there is a hole for the BNC socket and on the left wall, there is a rectangular recess for the USB connector and for the power supply connector.

There are four distance cylinders with holes to attach the circuit boards.

The right lid has no recesses and can be easily attached.

The buttons are arranged on a common base plate for easier assembly. So that they can be pressed individually, they must be printed with an elastic filament, for example, TPU. If this is not possible, the individual buttons must be separated from the base plate after printing so that they can be operated individually.

Image 6: Buttons from the 3D printer

Finally, there are two spacers that are to be inserted between Shield and the display to prevent the display from tensioning when screwing.

Figure 7: LCD Keypad Shield, installation of the spacers

Housing lower part, Lid, Buttons, Spacer piece 1, Spacer piece 2


The LCD Keypad Shield also has free soldering points that are connected to the pen strips in addition to the pin strips that are used for the connection to the ESP32 D1 R32 board. We use these to connect the external modules to the board. To do this, we also have to stock them with pen strips.

Image 8: Additional pen strips on the LCD Keypad Shield

Likewise, the 3.9 KOHM should not be forgotten.

We start the assembly with the buttons. You are inserted into the corresponding recesses in the housing. The two potentiometers with a connection cable follow. For the connection cables, we halve a 3-pin jumper wire cable and solder it with the potentiometers. A strain relief with a cable tie is an advantage.

Figure 9: Installation of the buttons in the housing

Figure 10: Installation of the potentiometers and the BNC socket (signal output)

A 2-pin jumper wire cable is also halved and soldered with the BNC socket.

If the two potentiometers and the BNC socket are installed, the LCD keypad shield can be attached in the housing with four screws. Don't forget to insert the two distant pieces between the display and the board. The voltage converter module and the amplifier module can also be attached with four screws.

Figure 11: Housing with LCD Keypad Shield, DC-DC converter, surgical amplifier and wiring

The cables can now be inserted according to the wiring plan.

Figure 12: Wiring plan

Finally, the ESP32 D1 R32 board is plugged into the LCD keypad shield.

Figure 13: Shared housing with the complete structure

Now on top of the lid, and assemble buttons for the potentiometers, then our functional generator is ready for use. We can use a USB charger or a power supply with 6 to 12 V for the power supply.

Figure 14: Finished function generator on the oscilloscope

Good luck in the replica.

Hallo Claus, GPIO12 ist schon richtig. Es ist nicht GPIO02 gemeint. Der Pin GPIO12 dient beim ESP32 dazu, die Versorgungsspannung für den Flash-Speicher zu steuern. Ist GPIO12 beim Bootvorgang auf High, beträgt die Versorgungsspannung 1.8 V, bei LOW 3.3V. Daher muss GPIO12 beim Booten auf LOW sein.
Das mit dem Widerstand ist richtig. Beim ESP32 Board könnte er weggelassen werden. Ich habe ihn auf das Display gelötet, da ich dieses auch mit der ESP8266 Version genutzt habe. Bei diesem Board ist dieser Anschluss mit A0 verbunden. A0 ist aber ein hochohmiger Eingang, der dann mit 5V beschädigt würde. Mit dem 3.9 kOhm Widerstand ist man auf der sicheren Seite und es funktionieren die Tasten trotzdem problemlos. Der Funktionsgenerator funktioniert natürlich nur mit dem ESP32!

wie immer, sehr schöner Artikel.
Heute habe ich den versteckten Tipfehler :-) gefunden.
‘…Ein weiteres Problem haben wir mit dem GPIO12 Anschluss. Der muss während des Bootvorgangs auf 0V liegen…’
Sollte doch GPIO2 statt GPIO12 Anschluss sein.
Außerdem sollte doch der 3,9kOhm Widerstand direkt am ESP32 reichen, dann bleibt das Display unverändert und wenn beides zusammengesteckt ist, ist sichergestellt, dass nur max. 3,3V am ESP anliegen. Falls die 3,9kOhm zum booten nicht reicht, tut es auch der 1kOhm alleine, dann sind die Taster-Spannungen etwas größer.

@Sven: Der D1 R32 ist “baulich” am Uno angelehnt. Die Uno Shields können also aufgesteckt werden. Aber es gibt deutliche Unterschiede bei der Pinbelegung, der gravierendste ist die zulässige Spannung von 3,3V beim D1 R32. Um das LCD Keypad Shield zu verwenden, müssen deshalb wie beschrieben die zusätzlichen Widerstände angelötet werden.

wieso steht beim LCD, den ihr verlinkt habt, dass dieser nicht mit dem D1 R32 kompatibel ist?
