I never posted that I had success to run FreeRTOS on LPC1343. The simple sample uses tasks to blink a LED. I am going to use tasks to schedule sensor readings, PID controller, break controller etc. for my epicii robot.(read more …)
In June 2015 I offered an Arduino Beginner Seminar. One of the students questions was if we could output information that is stored in an array to a LED matrix. Here is the example code that I promised.
Today I also spent some time soldering SMT components. I ordered the LED matrix as a kit which I believe consists of about 100 parts and requires approximately 800 solder connections. Don't worry, it does not take as much time as it sounds. Given everything works on the first attempt the whole thing is completed in about 90 minutes.(read more …)
Lets begin summer with an Arduino seminar!
What you will learn:
- Overview Arduino-Board and Arduino-IDE
- Installing the Arduino IDE
- Using a Breadboard for Experiments
- Writing and compiling C programms
Website hosting has changed dramatically over the last 20 years. I personally took part in this journey as a webmaster of a (recently) successful media site. In this article I summarize my journey and give a report on the technology I am using now.(read more …)
