Arduino UNO Tutorial 6 – Rotary Encoder

We have written a tutorial for Rotary Encoders using a Microchip microcontroller but now would be a good time to make an Arduino UNO version. With a rotary encoder we have two square wave outputs (A and B) which are 90 degrees out of phase with each other. The number of pulses or steps generated per complete turn varies. The Sparkfun Rotary Encoder has 12 steps but others may have more or less. The diagram ...

Tutorial 19: Arduino Dice

In this tutorial you will build a dice that is shaken by holding the button in and thrown by releasing the button. The shake, throw and number thrown are animated and displayed on a seven segment display. A 74HC595 IC is used to interface the 7-segment display to the Arduino, using only 3 Arduino digital pins. Prerequisites Know how to use a DIP IC, e.g. from tutorial 17 – Electronic Dice. Read about seven ...

Tutorial – Using DS1307 and DS3231 Real-time Clock Modules with Arduino

We keep getting requests on how to use DS1307 and DS3231 real-time clock modules with Arduino from various sources – so this is the first of a two part tutorial on how to use them. For this Arduino tutorial we have  two real-time clock modules to use, one based on the Maxim DS1307: and another based on the DS3231: There are two main differences between the ICs on the real-time clock modules, which is the ac ...

Nokia 5110 graphics tutorial

Step 1: Connections First let's connect the Nokia 5110 display. Remember that the LCD runs on 3.3V and although some people have connected it to 5V, it has worked but gave some weird effects, so I suggest connecting to the 3.3V output of the arduino. Next, the LIGHT pin on the LCD. It is the one pin which is controlling whether backlight is on or off. It will be on if the pin is connected through ground and ...

Arduino Button Tutorial

What's simpler and dumber than a button, you ask... I say: behind a button, unexpected things can hide. And within a program that does various things, handling a button can be tricky. The nice thing is that interesting functions can be built with a simple dumb button. This tutorial will address these aspects: wiring and configuring pins, using pull-up/pull-down resistor, deglitching, detecting states versus ...

RGB Liquid Crystal Display using Arduino Tutorial

This is something that almost every maker that is interested in easy electronics should know how to do. It is great for decorating or just experimenting for starters. I am doing this tutorial because I had bought an RGB display from the Maker Shed and it was hard to track down the instructions. First I will teach you how to connect it to the Arduino and then I will show you the code required. This isn’t my ...

Arduino Cellular Shield Tutorial

The Arduino Cellular Shield allows you to make cellular telephone calls, and send text messages. The brains of this shield is the SM5100B which is a robust cellular module capable of performing many of the tasks of most standard cell phones. This shield requires use of a SIM card to connect to a cellular network. The tutorial that follows is a bare bones tutorial for initializing the shield, and both sendin ...
