Microcrontroller Projects with Arduino Compatibles

Overview

 Below is an outline of first-time user's agenda to learn the very basics of using the Arduino platform.

Prerequisites

 

		Install the Arduino IDE on your PC 
		
			* https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
			
			* Allow the installer to setup the driver(s) for the Arduino
			
			* The IDE installer a bit hefty in terms of file size and run time, so please download and run it before the presentation.
		
		Install third party libraries and examples
		
			* In the IDE, File -> Preferences -> Additional Boards Manager URLs:
			
				- https://adafruit.github.io/arduino-board-index/package_adafruit_index.json
		
				- 'Okay'
            

Agenda Outline

 

		* Overview
		
		* Arduino LED 'Hello World'
		
			- Using different values for the delay length, program an arduino UNO with the blink without delay sketch.
		
			- In the IDE, select
			
				+ Examples -> 02 Digital -> Blink without delay
				+ Select 'Tools' -> Board -> Arduino/Genuino Uno
				+ Then  'Tools' -> Port -> whatever port the Arduino shows up as on the PC (COM9 or similar).  See the DeviceManager if you are not sure.

		* RGB LED Strip
		
			- Program an arduino UNO drive an NEOPixel strip
			
			- Connect the Strip to the Arduino
			
			- In the IDE select
			
				+ Sketch -> Include Library -> Adafruit NeoPixel
				
				+ File -> Examples -> Adafruit NeoPixel -> simple
				
				+ File -> Examples -> Adafruit NeoPixel -> starndtest
				
		* Questions and Wrap Up
