Using a microcontroller board is a simple way to get started using microcontrollers in your projects. You will get a development board with a microcontroller and all the components needed to make it work. This means you can focus on your idea instead of the details around setting up a microcontroller circuit. And usually the […]
Microcontrollers Resource Library
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.
If you haven’t started Arduino programming yet, it’s about time. The Arduino is a microcontroller board originally made for Interaction Design students in Italy. It was specifically developed to make it easy to start programming microcontrollers – even if you have no technical background.
Microcontroller programming can seem a bit tricky because there are many confusing choices to make. I remember how I felt in the beginning. With all the available compilers, IDE’s, programmers and programming methods – no wonder you get confused! So, let’s break it down. I struggled a lot when I was learning the microcontroller basics. […]
I loved learning about the microcontroller basics when I was studying. It meant I could start taking advantage of microcontrollers in my electronics projects. It kind of felt like with this knowledge, I was unstoppable. I could build ANYTHING! And it is actually true. Microcontrollers are powerful components. They let you write programs to control […]
In this Arduino shield tutorial I will show you how to create a 4×4 LED matrix Arduino shield. You can make any shield you want using this method. The tutorial consists of three videos: How to plan and create schematics How to design a circuit board How to get prototype circuits made
Here are some Arduino Resources that I have mentioned in my Arduino Shield Webinar:
