An Arduino Guide - Getting Started For Beginners Table Of Contents §1 – Intro to the Arduino §2 – What Can You Do With an Arduino? §3 – What Is Inside an Arduino? §4 – What You Will Need For This Guide §5 – Electrical Component Overview §6 – Programming Overview §7 – Setting Up Your Arduino §8 – Starter Projects §9 – Where to go From Here 1. Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to use hardware and software. Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. There are plenty of other microcontrollers available. That is what this Arduino guide is about. In addition to Arduino’s simplicity, it is also inexpensive, cross-platform and open source. Believe it or not, even relatively inexperienced users can build a version of the Arduino module on a breadboard in order to understand how it works and save a little bit of money. 2. There is a lot you can do with an Arduino. 3. 4. 5. 6. 6.1 Variables
Projects using the Teensy USB development board USBrewMinder YouTube VideoYouTube Video #2 A bubble counter used to monitor fermentation progress making homemade wine. It could be used for making beer also. It continuously monitors alcohol percentage by counting carbon dioxide bubbles and then back-calculating the amount of alcohol produced. On the PC side, a VB.net application to interrogates Teensy at a specified frequency and reports back the number of bubbles counted and converts volume of carbon dioxide produced to mass of ethanol produced.

Teensy USB Development Board The Teensy is a complete USB-based microcontroller development system, in a very small footprint, capable of implementing many types of projects. All programming is done via the USB port. No special programmer is needed, only a standard "Mini-B" USB cable and a PC or Macintosh with a USB port. Update: Discussion / Support Forum Teensy 3.1 changes from Teensy 3.0 Teensy Loader Application Software Development Tools WinAVR C compiler. Teensyduino, add-on for Arduino IDE. Simplified USB Examples or Dean Camera's LUFA library. Breadboard Usage The Teensy is available with header pins, for direct no-soldering-required use on a breadboard, which can also be run from the +5 volt from the USB cable. The 128x64 Graphics LCD can be used with Teensy 2.0 and Teensy++ 2.0 and Teensyduino using this GLCD library.
Free Model Foundry MitchTech Always the best in Arcade, Jukebox, Kiosk, Gaming and Industrial controls GGG Store News: May 14, 2016 Spring is finally here and warmer weather is on the way. It`s a great time to drag your tools into the driveway and get to work on those arcade related projects you`ve been dreaming about while the snow was falling. We are starting to see our costs rising from a number of our suppliers. We hope you enjoy your shopping experience with us. RandyT Teensyduino - Add-on for Arduino IDE to use Teensy USB development board Teensyduino is a software add-on for the Arduino, to run sketches on the Teensy and Teensy++! Running Sketches on the Teensy Most programs written for Arduino work on Teensy. All of the standard Arduino functions (digitalWrite, pinMode, analogRead, etc) all work on Teensy. Teensyduino is also compatible with many Arduino libraries. Teensy is not limited to only serial device type. All communication is performed at full native 12 Mbit/sec USB speed. Teensy has the same built-in peripherals as Arduio: analog inputs, SPI, I2C, PWM, and a real serial port. How Does Teensy 2.0 Compare With Arduino? On May 19, 2012, Arduino Leonardo was released, using the same ATMEGA32U4 chip as Teensy 2.0. Both Teensy 2.0 and Arduino Leonardo support USB Serial, Keyboard and Mouse.
Store This audio adaptor lets you easily add high quality 16 bit, 44.1 kHz sample rate (CD quality) audio to your projects with Teensy 3.0 or 3.1. It supports stereo headphone and stereo line-level output, and also stereo line-level input or mono microphone input. The Teensy Audio Library lets you use the input and output simultaneously together with a toolkit of audio processing objects, to easily create all types of sophisticated audio applications. You can play multiple sound files, create synthesized waveforms, apply effects, mix multiple streams and output high quality audio to the headphones or line out pins. Teensy 3.0 & 3.1 have the Cortex-M4 DSP instructions which provide plenty of computational power for real-time FFT (spectrum analysis), opening up the possibility of creating advanced sound-reactive projects. Two of these 14x1 pins can be used to easily soolder the Teensy 3.0/3.1 and audio board together. A 14 pin socket and 14 pin header can be used to make them plug together.
My Electronics Lab Finally we arrive at the part I enjoy the most....SOFTWARE! Yes, if you haven't guessed it by now I am a software guy. I have been fooling with electronics since I was a teenager, and did take some college classes in EE, but my degree is in computer science, so software is where I get really excited. Depending upon the hardware being used, the software and the development environments are obviously diverse. Most of the re-usable robot components I have been working with lately are all based around Microchip PIC chips. All my PIC programming is done using both Assembly, and 'C'.

forum • View topic - Omnidirectional Remote Controlled Robot I just did a very quick and rough assembly... and well... it works kinda, the wheels without any plastidip or similar on a wooden floor slip and slide a ton and my tiny DC motors with not much down-gearing in the gearbox spin way too fast, the robot moves in the expected direction reasonably well, but it's basically spinning at least 4 times the distance is moves if that makes sense, and since it has 4 wheels with no suspension or give what so ever going over anything makes at least one wheel free-wheel in the air. And this is without the 300g battery, motor controller boards, arduino mega and second level on top, I expect the performance to get even worse with that weight on top. I'll need to find something like plasti-dip to coat the rollers with as well, clearly needs more traction. Quick sketch
