Arduino Shield List: macetech Centipede Shield Photo: MaceTech Shield URL: Centipede ShieldTags: Maker: macetech The Centipede Shield uses the Wire I2C interface on analog pins 4 and 5 to provide 64 general purpose I/O pins. Any pin can be configured for input or output. By default, the power for all chips on the Centipede Shield is drawn from the Arduino 5V bus.

learn.adafruit The original Adafruit Motorshield kit is one of our most beloved kits, which is why we decided to make something even better. We have upgraded the shield kit to make the bestest, easiest way to drive DC and Stepper motors. This shield will make quick work of your next robotics project! Instead of a L293D darlington driver, we now have the TB6612 MOSFET driver: with 1.2A per channel and 3A peak current capability. Instead of using a latch and the Arduino's PWM pins, we have a fully-dedicated PWM driver chip onboard. Completely stackable design: 5 address-select pins means up to 32 stackable shields: that's 64 steppers or 128 DC motors! Lots of other little improvements such as a polarity protection FET on the power pins and a big prototyping area. Lets check out these specs again: 2 connections for 5V 'hobby' servos connected to the Arduino's high-resolution dedicated timer - no jitter!

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. Not just any shift register, the super cheap, incredibly awesome 74HC595 8-bit Shift Register! What does a Shift Register do? Basically a shift register will, in the end, let you expand on the digital outputs you have on your mictrocontroller. But the way it works is a little confusing to think of at first, and these are helpful enough that it is really worth understanding what the heck is going on under the hood. You can imagine a shift register as a row of chairs. Now, every 10 seconds or so, someone rings a bell, and everyone has to get up and move one chair to the right. How does this let me control LEDs again? Code

Arduino Shield List: Samurai Circuits Mama Shield Photo by Tully Gehan Shield URL: Mama ShieldTags: Maker: Samurai Circuits The Mama Shield was designed for high-speed prototyping, and has 5 slots for inserting daughter-boards. Each slot has a 36 pins. The slots contains all of the Arduino pins plus 8 shared bus pins. The bus pins allow cards to communicate between each other. The shield also has a switchboard so you can easily reconfigure the pin mapping. Open Source: UnknownLicense: UnknownSource: Unknown How to control a Servo In this one, servo is programmed to be controlled by two buttons, one turns servo to the left and the other one turns it to the right. When the servo is turning, corresponding LED will be switched on to indicate the operation. Result: Because Arduino has built-in library for controlling servo, which makes servo a really easy kit to use. In this project, I will be using a servo to turn the IR sensor around constantly. This is the circuit Diagram: This is the code: #include Servo myservo; // create servo object to control a servo // a maximum of eight servo objects can be created int pos = 90; // variable to store the servo position const int maxDeg = 160;const int minDeg = 5; const int leftPin = 3;const int rightPin = 2; const int led1Pin = 6; // indicatorconst int led2Pin = 5; // indicator const int outputPin = 9; // pwm function will be disabled on pin 9 and 10 if using servo int leftPressed = 0;int rightPressed = 0; If you find this article useful.

Circuits@Home centipede_shield [macetech documentation] The Centipede Shield is an add-on PCB for standard layout (Uno, Duemilanove, Diecimila) Arduino microcontroller boards. It uses the Wire I2C interface on analog pins 4 and 5 to provide 64 general purpose I/O pins. Any pin can be configured for input or output. The shield uses four Microchip MCP23017 16-pin digital I/O expander chips. Each I/O port corresponds to one MCP23017 IC. The 20-pin 0.1“ headers allow access to 16 I/O, two GND pins, and two COM pins. By default, the power for all chips on the Centipede Shield is drawn from the Arduino 5V bus. If the PWR jumper is shorting the 5V position, then the Centipede Shield will be drawing its power for operation from the Arduino 5V bus. The MCP23017 I2C interface can have up to 8 unique bus addresses. The Centipede Shield uses the official Arduino designation of I2C pins, namely the alternate functions of Analog 4 and 5 on the original Arduino pin configuration. The INTA pads are connected to the MCP23017 interrupt A output pads.

How To Install Windows 10: How to download and install Windows 10 Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is over — Windows 10 is finally here. Microsoft on Wednesday began the long, long process of trying to make the world forget all about the disaster that was Windows 8. By all accounts, the company has done a good job so far, not just by skipping 9 and jumping right to 10 for the software’s name, but also by creating a new operating system that actually seems like it was designed to run on a laptop or desktop, rather than just a tablet. While July 29th marks the start of the Windows 10 rollout, there’s no guarantee that you’ll get the new software today — or even this week — if you sit around and wait for Microsoft’s updater. MORE COVERAGE: Windows 10: The first 5 things you need to do immediately after you install it Tech bloggers have been tripping over themselves to sing Windows 10 praise. Whatever the case, it’s finally time for the public to get its hands on Microsoft’s release version of Windows 10.

rh_count Relative Humidity Measurement using the Humirel HS1101 Sensor Arduino, BasicX BX24 and PICAXE-18X copyright, Peter H. Anderson, Baltimore, MD, Nov, '07 (Nov, '07). Introduction This discussion focuses on a relatively simple technique for measuring relative humidity using a sensor. It is desireable to measure temperature as people are usually interested in both the relative humidity and temperature. Advantages of this technique for measuring relative humidity are that it is inexpensive and as the input to the processor is a pulse train as opposed to an analog voltage, the RH measurement circuitry may be located several hundred feet from the processor. I offer a small assembled package, consisting of a HS-1101 sensor, TS555 (SGThompson), 49.9K and 562K one percent resistors for the 555 circuitry, and a separate 10K NTC thermistor for measuring temperature. In the above I have illustrated the powering of the humidity board using a processor output. Arduino. BasicX BX24

Libraries Reference Language | Libraries | Comparison | Changes The Arduino environment can be extended through the use of libraries, just like most programming platforms. Libraries provide extra functionality for use in sketches, e.g. working with hardware or manipulating data. Standard Libraries EEPROM - reading and writing to "permanent" storage Ethernet - for connecting to the internet using the Arduino Ethernet Shield, Arduino Ethernet Shield 2 and Arduino Leonardo ETH Firmata - for communicating with applications on the computer using a standard serial protocol.
