LED Matrix Controller

In this project, we will use the digital pins and screen of the 4Duino to create a 5×7 LED matrix controller with a user graphical interface. An LED matrix is essentially many LEDs packaged in a dot grid format in order to produce pictures or large text. They’re commonly used for signage purposes in the public space. The LED matrix utilised in this project is made by multiplexing 35 LEDs together such that ...

4Duino LED Brightness Control

In this project, we will learn how to control the brightness of LED via an I/O port (with PWM output capability) and a touch display slider. The 4Duino resistive touch display is used as a means for a graphical interface to control the intensity of the LED. Since the 4Duino itself has an LED on pin D13 with PWM output capability, you may use the LED to conduct this project for convenience. A LED (light emit ...

LED Control Using Touch Button

In this project, we will learn how to turn an LED ON or OFF via the 4Duino I/O port (D13) and a button widget from 4D Workshops. The 4Duino’s resistive touch display is used as a means for a graphical interface to control state of the LED. For convenience, we will use the LED on pin D13 of the 4Duino to conduct this project. An LED (light emitting diode) works on the basic principle that when potential diff ...

Getting Started with Arduino Due

ARDUINO DUE is an ARM controller based board designed for electronic Engineers and Hobbyists. ARM architecture is very influential in modern electronics. We are using the ARM architecture based controllers everywhere. For example we are using ARM controllers in our mobiles, iPods and computers etc.  If someone wants to design industrial systems, it must be on ARM controllers. ARM controllers are very import ...

Interfacing SSD1306 OLED Display with Arduino

Most of us would be familiar with the 16×2 Dot matrix LCD display that is used in most of the projects to display some information to the user.  But these LCD displays have a lot of limitation in what they can do. In this tutorial we are going to learn about OLED displays and how to use them Arduino. There are lots of types of OLED displays available in the market and there are lots of ways to get them work ...

Arduino Based 3-Way Traffic Light Controller

We all know about Arduino. It is one of the most popular open source micro controller board which is highly useful for doing DIY projects. This Arduino based 3-Way Traffic Light Controller is a simple Arduino DIY project which is useful to understand the working of traffic lights which we see around us. We have covered a more simpler version of traffic lights in this traffic light circuit.  Here have demons ...

3x3x3 LED Cube with Arduino Lib using arduino

There are other Instructables about building LED cubes, this one is different for several reasons: 1. It's built with a low number of off-the-shelf components and hooks up directly to the Arduino. 2. A clear, easy to reproduce circuit diagram is provided with plenty of photos. 3. A unique approach is used for the software which makes programming the cube easier and more expressive. Parts needed: -   1 Perfb ...

Brickduino (2. Parallel connector)

This instructable is part of the "Brickduino" series. [Brickduino 1. LED] - I expect that you did the Brickduino LED before you start with this instructable - Mainly this instructable is the same as the Brickduino LED! So if you want to skip all the steps that are the same than jump directly to step 6! To light more than one "Brickduino LED", I can simply stack them together. Than they are connected seriall ...

LEGO + Arduino = Brickduino (1. the LED)

I know LEGO has the Mindstorms-set that probably is great, but wouldn't it be even better (and cheaper) to hack your regular bricks into your own micro controller controlled LEGO? Well I think so! I had this idea for a long time, but to many other projects stood in the way until Tristram posted this instructable: DIY-LEGO We tried to work together on this project, but it seemed impossible to synchronize our ...

Make a Mini LED Siren powered by Arduino

This is one of the first projects I have made with Arduino. It's a little siren with a LED that fades and blinks on and off. It demonstrates basic use of LEDs and speakers. Also check out this article: 8-Pin Programming Shield Constructive criticism is appreciated! Let's get started!   Step 2: Solder jumper wires to the button and speaker Fire up your soldering iron and attach wires to each of leads on ...
