Tonight’s class has been cancelled due to an emergency that has come up. We will pick back up next Friday.
We will be using 7 segment displays. Two new topics will be covered: sinking current and C arrays.
If you have your own 7 segment, feel free to bring it. There will be several to choose from if you need one.
1. What is a 7 segement
2. Explain sinking of current
3. Determine type of 7 segment
4. Wire up to Arduino
5. Write code to display a single number
6. Change code to flash a number
7. Change code to show two numbers
8. Introduction to arrays in C
9. Use an array to count with the 7 segment
If you cannot attend the class in person, E-Mail email@example.com and ask to be added to the Google Hangout. The hangout will be started just before class (6:45-7:00 PM).
The slides for the upcoming and previous classes can be found here. The slides are generally made during the three days before a class.
1. An Arduino board of some kind (Uno, Due, Mega, Boarduino, Duemilanove, etc)
2. If your board does not have USB programming built in, you will need a programmer (AVRISP, Bus Pirate, Bus Blaster, AVR Dragon, another Arduino, etc)
3. Breadboard (the long one if possible, though the small square-ish ones are okay for now)
4. USB cable for your board and/or programmer
5. Laptop with the Arduino IDE installed (Linux, Windows, or Mac)
6. Jumper wires for your breadboard
1. Breadboard and jumpers (if you don’t have any of either)
2. Resistors (200 – 500 Ohm)
3. 7 segment display
Since Unallocated Space runs off of donations, we would like to mention that the recommended donation for this class is $5. It is by no means a requirement, but it does help us keep the lights on! Attendance to the space, and this class, is 100% free to all!
