Using the ST7735 1.8″ Color TFT Display with Arduino

Hi guys, welcome to today’s tutorial. Today, we will look on how to use the 1.8″ ST7735  colored TFT display with Arduino. The past few tutorials have been focused on how to use the Nokia 5110 LCD display extensively but there will be a time when we will need to use a colored display or something bigger with additional features, that’s where the 1.8″ ST7735 TFT display comes in. The ST7735 TFT display is a ...

Arduino Button Debounce Tutorial

One of the major problems encountered when using push buttons and switches in digital electronics project is the problem of bouncing. When we press a button once it may register twice and when we press it four times, in a row, for instance, it may register just twice. This occurrence is due to a property of switches known as bounciness which is as a result of the physical property of the switches. Contact b ...

Arduino distance meter with Ultrasonic Sensor (HC SR04) and Nokia 5110 LCD display

Introduction Measuring distance is so important in today’s world that things like driverless cars will be impossible without it, that description is probably enough to describe how important knowing the distance between two objects can be. For that reason, today we will be building a distance meter using the Arduino and the HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor. The HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor is a cheap ranging sensor c ...

Driving an 8×8 (64) LED Matrix with MAX7219 (or MAX7221) and Arduino Uno

Introduction Hi guys, today we will be focusing on displaying mini graphics and texts on an 8×8 LED matrix using the MAX7219 (or MAX7221) LED driver and the Arduino Uno. The 8×8 LED matrix displays are usually used for the display of symbols, simple graphics and texts. Made of super bright LEDs, they produce low resolution display and can be daisy chained to produce larger displays. To enable us to control ...

DIY Light (Lux) Meter using BH1750 sensor, Arduino and Nokia 5110

Introduction Hi guys, continuing on our recent path of building really cool stuffs based on the Nokia 5110 LCD display, today we will be building a DIY Lux (or light) meter using the highly sensitive BH1750 light sensor. Illuminance (measured in LUX) is the total luminous flux incident on a surface, per unit area. It is a measure of how much the incident light illuminates the surface, it is wavelength-weigh ...

Rotary Encoder with Arduino and Nokia 5110 LCD Tutorial

Introduction Today we will take a look at using a rotary encoder with Arduino and displaying rotation data on the Nokia 5110 LCD display. A rotary encoder is an electro-mechanical device that converts angular position or the rotation of a shaft into analog or digital values. They are mainly of two types, absolute and incremental rotary encoders. The output of the absolute encoders indicates the current posi ...

DIY Arduino Battery Capacity Tester

I have salvaged so many old lap-top batteries ( 18650 ) to reuse them in my solar projects.It is very difficult to identify the good cells in battery pack.Earlier in one of my Power Bank Instructable I have told, how to identify good cells by measuring their voltages, but this method is not at all reliable.So I really wanted a way to measure each cell exact capacity instead of their voltages. Few week ago, ...
