thanks for concern
i need to sense temperaure ,pressure
the timers used in my country almost mechanical timers(cam) so the snsors all are high power sensors (220 V)
pressure(daiphragm) ,solenoid , and heater those all are used to measure water level ,and allow water in and out ,and heat water respectively

I use microcontrollers for a long time in low voltage (instrumentation and display) applications. But when I tried to make a washing machine controller, I was in a real problem. The microcontroller operartes some small relays to drive some 220 volt operated devices of the machine e.g. pump, heater, door lock, motor etc. but I found that one (...)

one single PIC microcontroller is not enough. Overall you need an array of PIC's synchronized with each other in order to make it altogether work. The higher the frequency the better is it. Plus you need a large memory over 64-128kb attached in the chip.
Idea seems great, francky must yeild inexpensive solution to the problem and becomes better

CPLD and FPGA are hardware connections, so when you need speed, fast data transfers, and few operations. When you need only few clock cycles to get a result, CPLD or FPGA are the best.
But, when you need more data procesing, like mathematical operations, data arrays, data sorting, or anything that don't need a too fast result, cause you can tole

because there are different kind of controls suiting the applications.
As if you want some basic control,you can go with a simple triacs etc or if you need a proffessional sophisticated control,then you need to go with microcontroller based/pwm based/H-bridge topologies.

Just because you may have a need for a GHz micro-controller doesn't mean that the volume consumers of it (washing machines, car radios, etc..) need such a device.

what is the differences between the microcontroller and microprocessor ?
A very short answer could be this: microcontroller is something in which the RAM, ROM and such extra components are built in whereas a Microprocessor is one that has only the processor. RAM, ROM and other things will have to be connected externally.

An embedded system is a special-purpose system in which the computer is completely encapsulated by the device it controls. Unlike a general-purpose computer, such as a personal computer, an embedded system performs pre-defined tasks, usually with very specific requirements.

Probably the most robust way is to use a relay to close the AC circuit. It won't care if the load is inductive, capacitive, or resistive. You can get pretty small 15A with 5V or 12V coil drive. It provides the mains isolation as well. You'll want to make sure to include a reversed diode across the coil to catch the inductive k

I'm pretty sure it's just a timer. You could test this by putting some water in and time when it shuts off. The time will only be close each time, not exact, unless there's a microcontroller involved.

According to the pin connections on the picture, the ic SEEMS to be a PIC12 series microcontroller (I see GND goes to pin 8, +5V Vdd COULD go to pin 1 and a 10K resistor is placed between +Vdd and pin 4 that is MCLR on PIC12xxxx).
