Tired of red LEDs? Get an RGB and check out this tutorial.

In this post I will walk you through the steps required to program an AVR chip using the AVRISP mkII. Hardware and Software Required Here is a list of things you’ll need Hardware 4.7K resistor 1k resistor LED AVR Chip: I’ll use the atmega328p Programmer: AVRISP mkII AVR Programmer Adapter (optional) Jumper Wires 5V Power […]

There are many types of modulations, pulse width modulation (PWM) is one of them and it’s easy with the Arduino. In this tutorial I will show you how to use PWM to change the brightness of an LED and by looking at the oscilloscope and LED at the same time you will get a better understanding.

Don’t have any LED’s to play with? don’t you worry, your board comes with 8 green lights. Learn how to use them here.

Tired of playing with single LEDs? Then it’s time you play with a 7 segment indicator. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to make an automatic counter with your arduino.

You know how to flash LEDs, now you are ready to make an automatic counter.

There are lots of things that you can do with your PIC18 board using only outputs, but we can do far more if we add inputs to your code. In this post I’ll show you how to use your board’s RB0 button to turn on a red LED, simple? yes, but this will be the […]

Learn how to use the delays library of the mcc18 compiler to flash an led on and off with your pic18 explorer board.

In this tutorial I will show you how to use your pic18 explorer board to turn on an LED.
