What is quiz buzzer?

Quiz buzzers are used often at places like educational institutions where it is required for game shows and also in live quiz competitions broadcast via television. A quiz buzzer allows any user to press the switch quickly in response to a question posed during competitions that are conducted in schools and colleges.

How many pins of the microcontroller are to be connected to the buzzer?

This quiz buzzer system has eight input pins corresponding to eight teams. The output is displayed on a seven segment display (interfaced with microcontroller), which shows the number corresponding to the team which has pressed the button first. A buzzer is also sounded for a small duration to give an acoustic alarm.

How buzzer works with microcontroller?

The 8 Channel Quiz Buzzer Circuit using Microcontroller is a simple embedded system with a set of 8 push buttons being the input devices, a microcontroller as the main controller and the output devices being a buzzer and a display.

How do you connect a buzzer to a circuit?

The Connections are pretty simple:

  1. Connect Supply wire (positive) of the buzzer to the Digital Pin of the Arduino.
  2. Connect Ground wire (negative) of the buzzer to Ground Pin on the Arduino, through a 100-ohm resistor.

What are the parts of a buzzer?

Electromagnetic buzzer is composed of oscillator, solenoid coil, magnet, vibration diaphragm, housing, etc. When the power supply is switched on, the audio signal current generated by the oscillator passes through the solenoid coil, which generates a magnetic field.

What is a quiz buzzer that uses an 8051 microcontroller?

To understand this concept better, a practical example of a quiz buzzer that uses an 8051 microcontroller is given below. This proposed 8 candidate quiz buzzer system is used in quiz competitions of schools and colleges. The team that presses the buzzer first is given the first preference for answering a question.

How to make a quiz buzzer circuit with 555 timer?

The quiz buzzer circuit with 555 timers can be further developed by using 8051 microcontrollers (AT89C51). In a 555 timer, the time value of the buzzer can be varied depending on the capacitor’s value, by using an 8051 microcontroller – the timing values can be changed by changing the program in the microcontroller.

What is a buzzer circuit?

A Microcontroller based buzzer circuit is a programmable timer wherein the time duration can be varied by changing the program code of the microcontroller. The following description of both these circuits will help you to compare both the circuits and their operations.

How many input pins are used in a buzzer system?

In this system, total nine input pins are used, all the eight input pins are connected as switches to the port1 of the microcontroller, and the ninth pin is set as a reset button for resetting the buzzer system. The eight switches are connected to the buzzer; if any of the switches is pressed, then the buzzer gets blown.
