Here’s the code I used in the Arduino radar tutorial:
Microcontrollers are components that make it easy to control things like LEDs, motors, or fans based on sensor input like temperature, light, or speed.
Since it's easy to make advanced functions with microcontrollers, almost all things electronic use a microcontroller these days.
To use a microcontroller in your project you need to learn to write code. And you need to learn how to upload that code onto the chip. I highly recommend Arduino as a starting point. It makes coding and uploading much simpler.
This page is a library resource with tutorials and the basics of microcontrollers.
To complete today’s part of the microcontroller tutorial – I have doubted myself, I’ve burned my finger and I’ve received a surprise bill from the customs. But all in all, I’m very happy with the result. I made it work. And I love the feeling I get when I make something work! We are now […]
Let’s get ready to circuit board desiiiiiiiiign! We are now in the fourth part of the microcontroller tutorial. We have a microcontroller circuit diagram ready. It’s time to make a circuit board. I love this part. This is the “magical” step that takes the idea we started with and turns it into something real.
In this tutorial I will teach you how to build your own microcontroller circuit. This way, you can easily add microcontrollers to your own projects. We are now at part three of this tutorial. In part one of the microcontroller tutorial, we looked at what a microcontroller is. We saw that a microcontroller is like […]
In the previous part of the microcontroller tutorial series, we looked into the basics of microcontrollers. Our goal is to build a microcontroller circuit that is as simple as possible. So that we can make it at home. Next up in this tutorial is choosing a microcontroller. This can be hard! At least if you […]
This is my first of five posts in this microcontroller tutorial series. Throughout this tutorial, I will be building a microcontroller circuit while documenting the process. By following what I do, you can make your own at home. My goal is to make a circuit that is as simple as possible, and which requires no […]
