Using the 74HC595 to control 8 leds (outputs) without giving up 8 ports on the arduino uno. Three outputs from the arduino are used to shift the data out in serial to the 74HC595 were it is then parceled out to each of its individual pins. You can link multiple registers together to extend your […]
This was the first experiment I did with Ken Shirrif’s Infrared Remote Control Library for the Arduino. The circuit uses a TSOP382 IR photo sensor to receive the codes from the Clarion remote controller I had lying around. Once the code is received the program then decides which tone to play. In this example I […]
This is the first experiment I tried with the board of education arduuino robot shield. The experiment involves using Ken Shirrifs IR Library along with any IR Receiver. In order to use this example you will first need to determine what the IR codes are for the transmitter you wish to use. The examples/IRrecvDemo sketch […]
Last night I put together the Nootropic design 16×32 RGB backpack from Adafruit to power a 16×32 display also obtained from Adafruit.
