Step 6-Reading analog data input!

What you have learned so far with Pakronics… Through previous blogs (#1, #2, #3, #4, and #5), we looked at working with Genuino board, Arduino software IDE and range of hardware components. We also learnt how to interface external components – basic input and output devices, with Genuino board. An …

Step 4-Connecting Genuino Board to Real-World!

The main purpose of Genuino (yes, the open-source microcontroller board) is to build systems that could interact with outside world i.e., accept input or data (switching input, sensor signal, keypress), process it and produce an output (turn on/off an LED, motor speed control, display message or value etc.). There are different …
