Intro to Arduino
This is an introduction to the physical computing platform known as the Arduino. In this class we will be assembling our own Arduino clone on a standard hobby breadboard and doing several simple coding examples. Examples will include blinking LEDs, PWM, switch debouncing and reading analog signals.
This is the first class in a series of classes using the Arduino platform. All students will receive a set of parts upon arrival that are theirs to keep. These parts, once assembled, will be a fully functional Arduino clone that will be used in future lessons such as motor/servo control and advanced programming.
A laptop is required for this course. In order to speed up the beginning of class, please make sure you have downloaded the following item.
