VFD Alarm Clock

IV-27M Alarm Clock Project date: March 2019 – May 2019 Overview After the successful completion of the XIV Nixie Clock which was Direct/Static Driven, I was keen to start work on a new clock which was based on the Multiplexing(Dynamic) or “MUX” principle of operation, known also as “Muxing”. The new clock would be based on the USSR manufactured IV-27V VFD, 13 element, 7 segment tube. This tube requires a 24 ...

Dev Board Breadboard

This Instructables show how to create a tailor-made breadboard for dev board. Step 1: Current Breadboard Breadboard (solderless breadboards) is a very import component for prototyping of electronics. It can help you test the circuit before soldering it. Since the connection not require soldering, after the prototyping, all components can be reusable for next projects. There are various size of breadboard, a ...

FROM THE MACGYVER FILES: USING A STEPPER MOTOR AS AN ENCODER

It isn’t hard to imagine a scenario where you are stuck at home all day with nothing to do and certain items are in short supply. Sure, bathroom tissue gets all the press, but try buying some flour or a freezer and see how far you get. Plus online shopping has given up on next day delivery for the duration. Not hard to imagine at all. Now suppose your latest self-quarantine project needs a rotary shaft enco ...

Arduino Fireflies

https://youtu.be/S8C5a9tcbgk One of the things I look forward to with summers in Pennsylvania are fireflies in my backyard. I recently taught myself Adruino programming for the purpose of making this simple project. It's a great program to start with and is easy enough for any programmer, novice to expert, to build, modify and have fun with in only a few minutes. Let's get started. Step 1: What You'll Need. ...

Arduino Countdown Timer With Setup Buttons

In this Instructables guide I will show you how to make your own Arduino two digit countdown timer. I made my own circuit by using the ATmega328 micro controller but this is an optional step. In this guide I will help you to make it easily on breadboard by using the Arduino uno board! We will be able to set the timer by pressing the setup buttons. We will use two digits seven segment display, so the maximum ...

Read a Potentiometer With Arduino’s Analog Input

https://youtu.be/-EDYMQ9lczA Let's learn how to read a potentiometer, a type of rotating variable resistor, using Arduino's analog input! We'll connect up a simple circuit using a solderless breadboard and use some simple Arduino code to control a single LED. So far you've learned to control LEDs with Arduino's output, and you learned to detect a pushbutton's state (on or off) with digital input. In this le ...

How to Use Water Flow Sensor – Arduino Tutorial

In this tutorial you will learn how to use one water flow sensor with an Arduino board. The water flow sensor consists of a plastic valve body, a water rotor and a hall-effect sensor. When the water flows through the rotor, rotor rolls and the speed of it changes with a different rate of flow. The hall-effect sensor outputs the corresponding pulse signal. This type of sensor can be found on different diamet ...

Tiny FPGA BX – A Tiny, Open Source FPGA development board for Makers

The TinyFPGA boards from Luke Valenty (TinyFPGA) are a series of low-cost, open-source FPGA development boards. These boards offer an inexpensive way to get an introduction to the world of FPGAs. If you have ever considered working with an FPGA before, you will know how difficult they could be especially for those new to the game. TinyFPGA boards are an excellent way to kickstart development with them. They ...

Arduino Laser Harp

A couple of weeks ago I presented my culmination project, framed laser harp, at New York City College of Technology. Work on it was so interesting for me, that I decided to share it here. I am an Arduino amateur and don't have any professional experience in electrical engineering or programming. Neither am I a musician. Probably that's why I had so much fun: when you are moving blindly, you can't see the gr ...

Controlling a MIDI CC in Ableton Live With an Arduino Uno

https://youtu.be/rx75N4OZCsk In this instructable we will use a potentiometer on an Arduino Uno to control a MIDI CC in Ableton Live. A MIDI CC stands for Continuous Controller, i.e. a number in the range from 0 to 127 inclusive to modulate something with. In the youtube I made for this intro you can see and hear that we modulate the filter frequency with the potentiometer. A potentiometer is an electronics ...
