JolliCube (8x8x8 LED Cube) With MD_Cubo Library

So far, we have only built 3 LED cubes. Our first cube is a 4x4x4 LED cube and though we managed to successfully complete it without too much difficulty, we did not find much excitement and satisfaction experimenting with it. Next, we designed, created and built our second cube, an 8x8x8 LED cube driven using the awesome MAX7219 ICs almost a year ago. You may check out our instructable on jolliCubeif y ...

Arduino Is Slow – and How to Fix It!

Arduino is slow? What? This instructable will show just how slow a part of Arduino is, and how to fix it.  It’s true – more specifically, Arduino’s digitalWrite command takes a considerable amount of time. If you are just switching on a LED once or something, you won’t be able to notice it. However, I realized how slow it was while I was trying to use a TLC5947 PWM driver. That requires the microcontroller ...

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 i ...

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 ...

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 ...
