Arduino Delay Function – Tutorial on Software Interrupts, Timer Library & Alternatives to Delay

By | 2018-06-30T08:39:38+00:00 June 30th, 2018|Arduino, Tutorials|

An Arduino delay can ruin your code. Knowing how to leverage software interrupts as well as Arduino timers as alternatives to Arduino delay calls critical. We will be looking at the Arduino Timer Library as well as examples of Software Interrupts and how you can eliminate the pesky Arduino delay function. The demo in [...]

Arduino Interrupts Button Tutorial Example – Pin 2 Hardware

By | 2018-06-22T19:19:49+00:00 June 23rd, 2018|Arduino, Tutorials|

Arduino Interrupts are powerful. In this tutorial, I will be showcasing an example of how to tie Pin 2 of the Arduino to a hardware interrupt with the use of a button. This simple guide illustrates the functions of an interrupt, how it triggers different software states as well as the configurations you need [...]

PLC Programming 3 – Simulating a PLC through RSLogix 500 Emulate

By | 2018-06-19T19:36:24+00:00 June 19th, 2018|PLC Programming, Tutorials|

Tutorial Overview In this episode, we’re looking at how you can emulate your projects within a local environment. RSLogix 500 Emulate allows you to load your complete programs and run them just like they would on a real PLC system. This tool is particularly useful for those who can’t get their hands on [...]

MAX7219 LED Matrix Display Arduino Walkthrough & Test Code – Scrolling Text Code

By | 2017-06-17T16:57:16+00:00 June 18th, 2017|Arduino, Tutorials|

In a previous video, I unboxed the MAX7219 LED Matrix Display module I purchased. Since then, I had a chance to get the module up and running. I was extremely pleased to find an Arduino library for this module. It allowed me to quickly get some advanced displays implemented. I decided to create a simple [...]

Arm Development #2 – STM32 Cortex-M0 I2C Tutorial using ADS1115 Analog to Digital IC – Keil & CubeMX

By | 2017-06-08T00:05:02+00:00 June 14th, 2017|ARM Development, Tutorials|

The second ARM Tutorial is progressively more difficult as we tackle I2C. I've made a very detailed tutorial on how to get I2C working on Arduino in conjunction with the MPU-6050 not long ago. Based on the popularity of that tutorial I decided to do something with I2C on the Discovery board. That being said, [...]
