This 60 minute course covers the basics of Arduino. It spans from an overview of the board design (components, I/O, power, etc.) to the software development environment. Schuyler St. Leger (a.k.a. @DocProfSky), the instructor, then goes through several live examples of prototyping circuits using an Adruino Uno and a breadboard along with additional components. You will need to watch the full 60 minute video is on Youtube to see the programming examples.

Programming and circuit examples include:
1) Blinking the on-board LED.
2) Blinking an LED via the digital header I/O.
3) Adding a button switch into the circuit to control the LED's on/off/on modes. This circuit expansion introduces a breadboard and the concept of a pull-down resistor to suppress electrical noise.
4) Using a potentiometer to control an LED's blink rate. The inner workings of a potentiometer is also explained.
5) Using a potentiometer to control an LED's brightness using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM.) The concept of PWM is also explained.
6) Controlling a servo motor.
7) Using a potentiometer to control a servo motor.

This course was presented at Desert Code Camp, November 2012 at Chandler-Gilbert Community College in Chandler, AZ.

  • Agenda • Overview of Arduino • Software overview • Live examples of programming • Some references for further enlightenment@DocProfSky 2
  • What is Arduino? • Open-source electronics prototyping platform • Hardware based on Atmel 8-bit microcontroller ATmega8 series – The DUE is 32-bit • Open-source hardware • Open-source software@DocProfSky 3
  • Arduino Uno: What’s What Reset LED Header for Switch Pin 13 Digital I/O USB Port Clock/ OscillatorUSB Inter-face Chip Micro- Power controllerRegulatorDC Power Analog Input Power Port Header Header 4
  • Software Programming • Integrated Development Environment (IDE) – All-in-one programming tool with built in compiler – Supported host development platforms • Microsoft Windows • Mac OS X • Linux • Arduino language is C/java based@DocProfSky 5
  • Software Programming • Sketch / Program: Three main parts 1. Structure 2. Values (variables, constants) 3. Functions@DocProfSky 6
  • Software Programming Let’s see some examples (easier to harder): • Basic sketch to blink an LED (“HELLO WORLD”) • Using a push-button switch to control an LED • Using a potentiometer to control an LED’s blink rate • Using a potentiometer to control an LED’s brightness (using PWM = Pulse Width Modulation) • And more if we have time…@DocProfSky 7
  • Ready To Get Started!@DocProfSky 8
  • Ready To Get Started!For the .NET audience@DocProfSky 9
  • Where to Get More Information • Arduino website: http://www.arduino.cc/ – Lots of reference information • Forum http://arduino.cc/forum/ • Playground http://arduino.cc/playground/ • Getting Started – Basic setup guide http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/HomePage – Tutorials to and examples http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/HomePage@DocProfSky 10
  • More Places to Get Information • Ladyada.net: Great Arduino tutorial! – http://www.ladyada.net/learn/arduino/ – Supported by Adafruit – 5 easy lessons for happiness and prosperity • Lesson 0 Pre-flight check...Is your Arduino and computer ready? • Lesson 1 The "Hello World!" of electronics, a simple blinking light • Lesson 2 Sketches, variables, procedures and hacking code • Lesson 3 Breadboards, resistors and LEDs, schematics, and basic RGB color-mixing • Lesson 4 The serial library and binary data - getting chatty with Arduino and crunching numbers • Lesson 5 Buttons & switches, digital inputs, pull-up and pull-down resistors, if/if- else statements, debouncing and your first contract product design.@DocProfSky 11
  • Even More Hardware Sources • Adafruit http://www.adafruit.com • Evil Mad Scientist http://www.evilmadscientist.com/ • Maker Shed http://www.makershed.com • RadioShack http://www.radioshack.com • SparkFun http://www.sparkfun.com/ • And many more…@DocProfSky 12
