Building my very first 3D printer was quite traumatic and time consuming but also fun and rewarding! I don’t suggest building your own unless you have a love for tinkering, and making. There are some other qualities that will come in handy such as tendency’s for hacking, electronics, and [...]
Programming a button press with VB and your @Netduino, Event handlers and interrupt ports. In this tutorial I show how to program the Netduino to light up the onboard LED when the button is pressed, I then go into event handlers and latching buttons.
Code for the simple button press.
This is the first in a series of tutorials on programming the Netduino with Visual Basic or VB. You can program the netduino with either C# or VB but VB is now my language of choice.
This simple program will blink the onboard LED on for a second then off for a [...]
Programming your Netduino with C# is fine and all, however, I am not going to do it any more. It is super easy to make the switch to a more forgiving programming language by the name of Visual Basic or VB.
I was in the middle of a project and I started to have [...]
In order to upgrade or replace the firmware in your Netduino you will need to download some software first.
Software you must download for the firmware upgrade:
Download the [...]
I’ve seen videos on YouTube using an Arduino and a Graphical LCD screen (GLCD) to create a simple Oscilloscope. The annoying thing is that I found no help whatsoever on how to build one. I spent a few days figuring out how to use the Nokia 3310 LCD screen and then figuring out how to [...]
As a follow up to my DIY Arduino Oscilloscope video or as a stand alone tutorial, this video should help you understand arrays and recursion in Arduino. You can find the original post here: DIY Arduino Oscilloscope with the Nokia 3310 GLCD screen
An array is like a variable in that it stores [...]
I had a need for a temperature scanner to troubleshoot overheating on my Duramax LB7 pickup while towing. A commercial solution to collect 6 temperatures may have run me over a thousand dollars so I ordered some thermistors and for about 40 bucks in parts made one myself.
Parts include an [...]
As it is getting cold again and my chickens made it through the summer just fine, it is time to revisit and revitalize my automatic chicken door.
The older model was a large door that slid on a track that would get leaves, snow, and ice messing the whole thing up. Also the mecanisim that [...]
In this video I show how to connect a servo to a Netduino and also how to program the servo library into a new solution. The sweep program will drive the arm of the servo back and forth while the Knob program will move the arm of the servo when you turn a potentiometer.
In this video I show how to connect a servo to an Arduino and also how to load the sample servo programs included with the Arduino software. The sweep program will drive the arm of the servo back and forth while the Knob program will move the arm of the servo when you turn a [...]
The absolute beginners guide to programming an Arduino Duemilanove for the first time. I will take you through downloading the Arduino programming software, configuring the software, writing your first program, sending it to the Arduino, and testing operation.
I used a ST7565 GLCD (Graphic Liquid Cristal Display) screen to display the live analog readings from an Arduino.
Here is the Arduino library: ST7565_GLCD_LIbrary.zip
The ST 7565 I picked up on Adafruit for about 16 bucks. I couldn’t find any examples to help [...]
Here I show what’s included and how to work the LM3s811 kit from Texas Instruments. You can acquire this kit from such sites as Ti.com, Newark.com, and Digikey.
The actual part number is EKK-LM3S811. This particular flavor has Keil™ RealView® IDE included, there are about five optional IDEs you can choose. As [...]
Here is my second ESC or Electronic Speed Control that I built with an Arduino Duemilanove. You can’t just hook DC up to Brushless DC Motors that you have scavenged out of old CDROM drives, hard drives, or printers and expect them to spin. Brushless DC motors require you to use a motor controller to [...]
