ShiftOut Learning Examples | Foundations | Hacking | Links Started by Carlyn Maw and Tom Igoe Nov, 06 Shifting Out & the 595 chip At sometime or another you may run out of pins on your Arduino board and need to extend it with shift registers. DFUProgramming8U2 The ATmega16U2 chip on your Arduino board acts as a bridge between the computer's USB port and the main processor's serial port. Previous versions of the Uno and Mega2560 had an Atmega8U2. It runs software called firmware (so named because you couldn't change it once it had been programmed in the chip) that can be updated through a special USB protocol called DFU (Device Firmware Update). Here's how to update the firmware on your 16u2 in a few steps. Check whether you need to update the firmware The Arduino Uno and Mega 2560 have been shipping with the updated version of the ATmega16u2 firmware.
Lampduino - an 8x8 RGB Floor Lamp : Programming the Colorduino The Colorduino comes with the Arduino bootloader pre-loaded, so it can be programmed via the Arduino IDE. It doesn't have a built-in USB to serial converter, however, so you must use either an external USB to serial cable, or an ICSP-compatible programmer. If you have an FTDI cable or similar, you can use that. To use an FTDI cable, connect it as follows: FTDI RX -> Colorduino TX FTDI TX -> Colorduino RX FTDI RTS -> Colorduino DTR FTDI GND -> Colorduino GND Another way is to use the embedded FTDI chip in an Arduino Duemilanove.

Core Principles - C. Roland Christensen Center for Teaching and Learning “ All professional schools face the same difficult challenge: how to prepare students for the world of practice. Time in the classroom must somehow translate directly into real-world activity: how to diagnose, decide, and act. ” — David Garvin, "Making the Case" The case method is a form of instructor-guided, discussion-based learning. It introduces complex and often ambiguous real-world scenarios into the classroom, typically through a case study with a protagonist facing an important decision. The case method represents a shift from the traditional, instructor-centered model of education to a participant-centered one in which students play a lead role in their own and each other's learning.
kalshagar - Arduino and a Nintendo DS touch screen Quite easy to do, with inexpensive components (Touch screen is 10$, break board connector 4$ and just buy it, don't be a hero), but with one or two caveats. Sample, wiring and code here under. Everything is basically an application of Elm-chan's very good tutorial (but not in Japanese). Caveats and what you should know Don't buy the connector alone, just buy the breakboard, it's not posible to solder with a "usual" iron. Arduino to Pure Data Arduino can output Serial data ( analog data ) from sensors connected to the arduino board. 1. Connect 5Volts to the Breadboard 2.
Can you move over? The 74HC595 8 bit shift register OK, so say you have this crazy cool idea where you need to control a ton of LEDs (I know, I know… LEDs). You looked at the multiplexer article, and that was great, but this idea is so cool, you need individual control of each LED, and turning them on one at a time just won’t do. Well again, we are here to help, and now it’s time to introduce you to the Shift Register.
Solidoodle 4 The Solidoodle 4 builds on the value and performance of our 3rd Generation 3D printer with several sleek improvements. The 4’s black powder-coated enclosure and ABS door with window provide an even quieter machine that keeps out cold drafts that can cause warping during a print, while still letting you keep an eye on everything. It also features an easy-open lid for simple changing of filaments on the Solidoodle all-metal extruder and a sturdy spool mount design to keep your filament flowing smoothly.
Why the Best Designers Don’t Specialize in Any One Thing mustafahacalaki/Getty The digital world is at an inflection point, and the implications demand that organizations—from big companies to startups to marketing agencies—hire designers who are smart generalists. Think about the moment we’re in: mobile, big data and personalization are converging to drive truly novel user experiences across countless new channels and in real life. A Multi-Protocol Infrared Remote Library for the Arduino Do you want to control your Arduino with an IR remote? Do you want to use your Arduino to control your stereo or other devices? This IR remote library lets you both send and receive IR remote codes in multiple protocols. It supports NEC, Sony SIRC, Philips RC5, Philips RC6, and raw protocols. If you want additional protocols, they are straightforward to add.
Easy Serial on the ATtiny Introduction The Atmel tinyAVR MCU's are great little chips for projects but can prove difficult to debug. Some ATtiny chips do not have direct support for hardware based serial and therefore the Serial object is unavailable in your code, however, it is easy to add a SoftwareSerial object and view output in the Arduino IDE. A Remotely Programable Relay Controller (Christmas Lights or Home Automation Controller) What was that? A Whats-a-Maja-Thimagig? Yep - One of those! This Instructable extends my Arduino Ethernet controller to control a set of up to 6 relays, but that's not the neat bit. The neat bit is that there is a web based state machine in the AtMega chip so that the relays will operate in whatever sequence with whatever timing you want - all by themselves. This allows you to have a set of relays connected to the end of a piece of Ethernet cable that can be accessed from a web browser anywhere from your house.
