Arduino Inventor’s Guide CIRC-02 (Multiple LEDs)

The second circuit in the Arduino Inventor’s Guide is a little more complicated than the first one. This time there are 8 LEDs connected to the board, but the LED animation is still fairly simple. It iterates over each LED and turns each one on. Once they are all on, it then loops backward turning each one off. It uses: Arduino CIRC-02 1 x Arduino Duemilanove 1 x breadboard 8 x Yellow LED 8 x 330 Ohm resistor...

Arduino Inventor’s Guide CIRC-01 (Blinking LED)

The first circuit in the Inventor’s Guide is a simple one that turns on and off a single LED repeatedly. I used: 1 x Arduino Duemilanove 1 x breadboard 1 x 5mm Yellow LED 1 x 330 ohm resistor 3 x wires (1 each for gnd, 5v and pin 13) You can download a copy of the breadboard layout sheet here, or watch an assembly video here. This was a good introductory circuit to cut my teeth with correctly wiring the parts together, as well...

Arduino Duemilanove Inventor’s Kit

I recently discovered the open-source electronics prototyping platform called Arduino.  I ordered the Arduino Professional Kit from www.canakit.com and have been playing with it ever since.  It is a fun way to waste a couple of hours at night after work.  The device runs on C applications that you write for it using the Arduino IDE.  The kit came with: Arduino Duemilanove USB Printed 36-page manual 12 color circuit overlays Clear...
