About Me

I am K.G. Pasan Laksiri Karunanayake and founder of OptoElectronics.lk.

Since 2011 I have specialized in designing custom electronics for industrial applications. Over the years I have engineered a broad range of custom industrial products.

When I work with a client I place a very high value on integrity, honesty and clear communication. With years of field experience I have learned that all business relationships are personal relationships. The more I know about the client and his project, the more I can contribute to a successful end product.

After I learn about the client requirement I always give them the better understanding and clear picture about, how the end product will function in real world. In addition to the client requirement, I also offer lots of options, features and improvements.

And I always very concern about the end product quality.

    hello pasan, i’m kushan. and i’m an instructor at german tech. pasan your projects are great. are u using eagle for your pcb’s. how do you print the top component side.
    and i,m very interested in your led sign board project. are u using assembler language or a high level language to write down the program. if you can give me some information it will be grateful of you.


    • pasanlaksiri says:

      Hi Kushan, Yes I use C language. I am pretty lazy to play with assembly. πŸ™‚ Coz its take more and more time which that I don’t have. No, I actually don’t like EAGLE. I use Sprint-Layout5 and I am about to change cad soft to Altium Design.

      The PCBs are done by using crappy screen print method. Top is also done by screen print.

      What other info that you need kushan.


  2. kushan says:

    thanks for your information. I’m using eagle. i downloaded the sprint-layout 5. can i draw the schematic on that software. didn’t knew about altium. i visited the site. i think it’s a great cad software. I’m downloading it now.

    from where did you designed your screen print layout.

    i made a 8x 10 led sign board using shift registers(4094) to multiplex columns. but in that method more columns couldn’t be build coz the duty cycle for each column is getting low. and the brithness too. i used 5 registers to hold a each character, and when need to shift i shifted the
    register values from each register to the next register. u used the ht 1632 to your sign board.
    on that ur multiplexing the rows isn’t it. so how are shifting the text are u shifting the registers or each bit from a register to the next.

    can you please give me some info about it.



  3. pasanlaksiri says:

    ” from where did you designed your screen print layout. ”

    my self. πŸ™‚

    ” u used the ht 1632 to your sign board. ”

    No dear πŸ™‚ . 8X64 one is built by just using shift registers (74hc959) . same as you are. Im a huge fan of 74hc595 πŸ˜€ . And I also used driver ICs instead of driving transistors coz transistors take lots of space. I hope to use Holtek display drivers for larger displays. But cascading PICs also a nice solution. Like 4 blocks per PIC. and another Master PIC for feed data.

    Hey your using which language ?

    What I am doing is column scan. I use shift registers to select a column. and then feed the data. Only difference is im only using one 8bit port and another 2 port pins. Thats called “macmux”. Plz see this image

    My design is also same above. And I also maintain a 8bit X8 video buffer. Well I am using C language so I easily can use single 64bit buffer. But it will also effect the system performance. Thats why I use 8 of 8bit buffers.


  4. kushan says:


    how did you make your screen print with your self.
    didnt you made it from a printing shop.

    i write with assembly, and pic basic pro.

    in the sign board,( image) how do you control the rows and the columns by same pins.?????

    are you using the shift registers to select columns or load data. i’cant understand how the program is written according to the schematic.

    please help


  5. pasanlaksiri says:

    ” how did you make your screen print with your self ”
    Little hard but easy. Its just not rocket science. Just see some you tube videos about Screen Print. And you can get all the things that you need from Nelu’s Advertising Nugegoda.

    ” didnt you made it from a printing shop. ”

    No by my self. I want the best quality.

    “how do you control the rows and the columns by same pins”

    Easy. did u see those are shift registers with latch. I think you can guess now. πŸ™‚

    ” are you using the shift registers to select columns or load data. ”

    Yes select columns. I do Horizontal Scan. ( Column Scan )

    “i’cant understand how the program is written according to the schematic.”

    Just for get the schematics and study 74HC595.
    At the very first time that I saw the schematics I didn’t even get a clue. πŸ˜€

    And im a Soft engi. undergraduate. But i love electronics and especially embedded systems.

    i hv desinged sm SMS controlled systems from pics.
    and like to learn unknown stuff from you.
    Hope u will help me.
    thank you.

    my favorite is development board and dotmatrix 1. im very curious about dot matrix . i tried to build a one but fail. so im hoping to seek ur great knowladge.

    thank you


  20. Sakvith Jayasinghe says:

    Yp. a original GSM module SIM300. had difficulties in finding da correct datasheet. but now working like a charm.

    Pasan , i need to get sm advice in screen printing 4 urgent pcb matter.

    Is it ok to call u or email. what would u prefer.
    pls help


    • pasanlaksiri says:

      What do you want to know about screen print ?

      You didn’t bought SIM300 from here right. How much did it cost you.

      Im also looking for order few serial GSM Modules.



  21. Sakvith Jayasinghe says:

    Screen print: what matirials do u need i have a frame. but mesh dpi? emulsion and other stuff i need? specially the ink?? for print in copper board.

    nope from a friend. but u can get it from ebay cost about 2500++


    this is da exact 1 i used.

    pls help me on screen print.
    is its not a hassle 4 u i can call u and get advice
    thank you.


  22. pasanlaksiri says:

    Sure bro. Could you call me like around 6.30pm.

    I bought all the screen print parts from Nugegoda Nelus Source One. The mesh is 140. They have two inks PVC and SS. SS ink is perfect for our work. its pretty thick and taking little more time to dry. Days like these it will take like more than 12 hours to dry. PVC ink is quick dry. But on the other hand it will coat very thin layer.

    For screen nelus guys do exposing stuff too. So what you all have to do is. Show your art work to them and tell them I want a screen for this and I want it to be exposed.

    For a new screen ( like 10*12 inch) and expose it will cost you roughly 1400/=

    Hey but do u know about pnp papers. ( press and peel )


  23. Sakvith Jayasinghe says:

    Oh.. good. i will go thr. thanx.

    Yp. hv used once. culdnt find in in nugegoda and pettha so brought it from ebay cost about 600. 2A4 sheets. its bit expencive. but good quality. print. have built a surface mount pcb for gsm.

    but i do general toner transfer from sticker sheet.
    but not good for large pcb’s

    do u have any options??

    ahh i thot u do the emultion apply to the mesh.
    but i think we xan also do the expose from halogen bulb.


    • pasanlaksiri says:

      Its just need some even UV source. Normal Tube Lights will do the job. My light box have six 12inch tube lights. It isn’t easy as u said it is. Really long process. First you have to roughen the mesh using abrasive degreaser gel. Then dry it. Then you have to coat a very thin even layer of UV sensitive gel ( im using nelus ready made stencil emulsion ink ). Then expose appropriate time and wash. ( expose time is depend on ur art work )

      But bro 300/= for a A4 sheet is pretty cheap. Why go for screen print. Actually for a single PCB screen print is too costly.


  24. Sakvith Jayasinghe says:

    Yp. yp. it take 15 day to arrive to srilanka. thats da prob.
    No i need to make 50 same pcb’s dats y i asked for it.
    toner transfering 4 50 s not easy.

    what about photorisist copper board??


  25. jpucik says:

    hello do you know make for me some pcb ? now and in the future ? now I need 10 pieces
    I am living in UK

    thanks Marian


  26. Sakvith Jayasinghe says:

    Ahh and there s my friend. he do pcbs about 300 for 5×5 board fully compleated. 500 for dual side. very professional. i do from him for complex boards.

    at home for prototypes.


    • pasanlaksiri says:

      There are lots of guys out here doing PCB making stuff. actually 300 for each is too much for 50Pcbs. For double layer PCB if u wanna do ti right u must at least have to do 4 screen prints.

      Is that 300/= is with top layer and drilling.


  27. nope. only drilling and surface mount.

    in toner transfer i only cost 20 + copper board. only for stiker sheet.

    ur a sayn dat 300 s too much 4 a 5×5 bord???
    ahh nono not 300 4 each only 4 one..(not bult)
    didnt ask a price 4 50.


  28. Sory again where did u buy that HT1632? f

My problem is I am a beginner with PIC, just get the inspiration from your project, I cant get the 16f84 in my place. There are only 16f84a. How can I modified the hex code to meke it possible to run on 16f84a. Please advice.

    Thank you.


    • pasanlaksiri says:

      Thanks for the comment. The thing is I cant even fnid a data sheet fro 16f84. Is your code in Assembly or C. If its in C which compiler do u use. U better use 16F628A atleast. There is no way to edit the hex code. You must need the Source Code.

    hello sir..im luqman from malaysia..i just read ur interesting blog..it so great to see ur project

    but i need ur help..cpuld you spend time to do a program?currently im a diploma student..i got to do mini project that is Smart Fire Detector..i need to create a program in C language that use PIC18F8720..can u help me?

    i attach with simple project background as well

    Current situation and reason for making the project.The reason of making this project because is detect fire burning and to avoid rapid fire burning by using ventilated fan.

    The fans monitor temperatures from several sources. By properly configuring speed fan, we can let it change fan speeds based on system temperatures. When choosing parameters for the minimum and maximum fan speed, we are using different temperature level to decide whether to on one or two fans. Consider that when the WARNING temperature is reached, the program sets the IC to run both fans.

    if you can create the program it will be grateful of you.

    Sending codes at rows and enabling one column at a time using s/w .
    My concern is the brightness. It is very less, I saw your displays are highly bright.
    I understand duty cycle is the main culprit. In this is it is 1/64 or 1/96

    Suggest how can I get more brightness, and
    what is the duty cycle with your displays?

  54. Jathya says:

    Hi Pasan,

    Really glad and great to see how you have mastered LED displays with PIC 16F series. Normally commercial ones are using more advanced processors. Great work.
    I live in Kottawa and I am a E. engineer. Would like to do something in electronics. But main constraint is the time coz I am working as an engineer and very limited time for development. Where do you get these big displays? Do you get it straight from a supplier or do you make it on your own?

    Pasan, have you tried programming the PIC with JDM by USB to serial cable? Cos what I have now is a laptop with only USB, and my JDM does not work with it.

    I hope to buy a PIC kit 3, but if there’s any other solution please let me know.

    best regards,


    • pasanlaksiri says:

      ” Normally commercial ones are using more advanced processors. ”
      Yes, but you also can do lots of wonders even using 1Mhz speed.

      ” Would like to do something in electronics ”

      What do you mean by that. Any how i never ever work under any one.
      And I grow step by step not straigt to the top.

      ” But main constraint is the time coz I am working as an engineer ”

      Yes agreed. And no I built these displays here.
      And its damn time consuming. Soldering 6000 LEDs is really pain in the A#$.
      Some time soldering those for longer hours makes me puke.

      ” Pasan, have you tried programming the PIC with JDM ”

      yes JDM, if you are using JDM with your note book. You must have to give it a
      external power supply. PIC needs 13V to flash it.
      But your note book or your usb to rs232 converter cable does not supply that much volts.
      Thats why it isn’t working. Do a google, you will find modified jdm schematics.
      Or you just need single transistor.

      ” I hope to buy a PIC kit 3, but if there’s any other ”

      If you are seriously in to PICs yes you better buy usb programmer.
      JDMs programmers are always sucks. I think other hobby serious PIC lovers here
      will also agree with me on this.

      You also can build a PK2 for your self. Check this >> http://simon.derr.free.fr/site/spip/spip.php?article11
      Thats just a one, there are tons of cloned Pk2s and Pk3s out there.

      Also jathya, there are cloned PK2 s at pettha market. Locally assembled but working fine too. Will cost you like 2800 or 3000SLR

      After all my PIC guru, Taught me well πŸ™‚

      Thank you Jathya for the comment.



      • Jathya says:

        Hi Pasan,

        Thanks a lot for taking your time to give elaborate comments, and making your home page as a learning place for beginners and enthusiasts from SL and from overseas. Together everyone can learn.

        I never thought you would solder all those 6000 through hole LEDs by yourself! I think you can try finding surface mount LEDs so you don’t have to drill. But at the same time you have to drill for the jumpers. Also if you can find SMT LEDs pasted on a paper (like most capacitors come) it would make soldering easier.

        ” Would like to do something in electronics ” means would like to develop prototypes which are useful and marketable. Current interests are power protection, serial communication, data logging etc.

        thanks for the comments regarding pic programmer.


  55. pasanlaksiri says:

    Actually its 6144 LEDs. He he.

    About SMT LEDs – yes agree. But it will not make any easy but it will
    add some neatness. Also coz of SMTs there will be lots of through holes.
    So after all it will be same as using normal ultra-high bright LEDs.

    β€œ pasted on a paper β€œ – you know I am mostly targeting out-door displays.
    Maintain the visibility at shining bright sun light conditions is really a big deal.
    So would you think those Flexi Displays can generate that much contrast.

    But how ever flexi display LEDs are much more powerful than our local market regular 2/= Rupee LEDs.
    He he. 

    And the MOST IMPORTANT thing is maintain the END PRODCT COST.
    You know Good quality SMT led will cost us like 20/=. So how about 6000 SMT leds sounds. He he.

    β€œ Current interests are power protection, serial communication, data logging etc. β€œ

    Very interesting and I also love your interest.

    I’ll also try to help you as I can.

    Thank for commenting here Jathya.

    Bye Bye..

    Hi pasan

    I am working computer hardware in university

    I have been assembled 7×32 led dot matrix board using pic 16f84a and 4017 4 ics . But really not working. I using language is assembly. Can u help me fix errors that language
    or using new language programming(mikro c).

    But bullied 7×20 board is working (using 4017 2 ics)
    Please send me above program to from (mickro c) 7×32 sing board.

    thank you very much

    I have been massively helped by your swift email response, and am delighted by your follow up. I’m forever in your debt if I can be of assistance, I’ll hopefully show you a working something using it..

    I literally copied the declarations, changed the port assignment, and within minutes I am no sat looking at a moving display.

    Kindest thanks

    hello sir, i’m sanath. and i’m student. your projects are great.
    I wrote a program in CCSC for counting (B0 or B1 ) and PIC18F452. it is work well. Counting values will display In PC (Hyperterminal) .
    But I want , When I pass values to PIC from PC (Ex : I send int “10”) , pic should be counted 1 to 10 and displayed “OK” .

    Pleeeezzz give me some advices…………..


    • pasanlaksiri says:

      Sanath sounds like your a beginner. Im not sure what your actual problem is. Because you have said your able to send data via PICs uart.
      So same as that send the max value that want to count up. And then tell the PIC to count up to that values.

      Sanath when I type it here it sounds like easy. But when you actually going to do it u will probably face problems. But don’t back down it is the only way to learn.

      Good Luck.


  61. sanathkw says:

    thanks lot of for consideration me …….

    sir , I want to make a USB PIC programmer. I have a PCB and components. But I don’t have Hex file for pic on the programmer(PIC18F2xxx) .
    sir , give me links or mail…………………



  62. Mounir says:

    Hi Pasan. I have a PIC16f88 ans would like to try your code.

    Hi! Pasan,

    Nice to go through your web. I am interested in makin projects with led’s and matrix. Guess you could help me with some nice projects that you have in your belt. Keep the good job going.



  64. subroto ghosh says:

    Hi! Pasan,

    Nice to hear that your led matrix clock is ready and tested for all errors. I just watched the video of it am really interested in making it. The only thing is I have a huge number of 8×8 matrix modules and would like to make the display using them insted of the holtek display module. Do you have any suggestion on this. I am just waiting for you to upload the schematics and the hex files. Once again thanks for the information that you give out to your fans and the projects that you develop.

    How are you? I had a small issue looking at your website but regardless it’s a really awesome site


    • pasanlaksiri says:

      Hi, I am doing fine. Yes that issue may be because this blog hosted on wordpress. I will move it to unlimited bandwidth host provider.
      Any how thank you very much for the comment.

  68. hi, I myself getting into micro contorller projects..with arduino. the hardware side is oky..! but i’m a complete noob to programming..! can u tell me where can i start to learn programming? is it hard to catchup.? by the way nice work.awsome projects.


    • pasanlaksiri says:

      Hi, When you getting in to some thing you have to start it from the scratch. First you do some hello world projects. Like blinking an LED.
      Then study more about it. If you are using Arduino, there are tons of arduno play ground sites. You’ll be able to learn many new stuff if u dig deeper. Good Luck Zaim.


  69. yeah…i’m 2007 A/L…BTW nice to meet u brother.I add u in FB.

    I was suggested this website by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him
    as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble.

    You’re wonderful! Thanks!

    Dear mr.pasan,
    You are really a great man in Electronics and software, perticularly with your PIC projects.

    I am padmanabhan from bangalore. I have liked your various projects, But how do i look into the SCh and the coding. Kindly reply at the earliest.


    • pasanlaksiri says:

      Dear Mr.Padmanabhan,

      Thank you very much for the kind words of yours. Its Very Encouraging. About the Schematics and Codings…. Mr.Padmanabhan, I usually do not publish the codes and stuff for a reason. But I help others personally without any charge. Mostly Local and Foreign Undergraduates consult me for their Projects…
