LED Matrix and Arduino

LED Matrix Driven by an Arduino

Light Emitting Diodes (LED) are everywhere. There is a good reason for that, we love them! Most of us are using LEDs to communicate information, debug our code or simply add some style to our electronic projects. One of the first things one normally want to do is pack a bunch of LED to...

Build an Arduino Clone

A basic Arduino clone

There are many different kinds of Arduino boards out there. Most of the time you will find one that fulfill all your needs but, sometime, you may want to build your own Arduino based board. Why would someone build its own Arduino board? Well, I can see two reasons to do that. Reason #1: Size and...

Arduino, Netduino Plus and XBee Radio

Arduino, Netduino Plus and XBee modems

I just received two XBee wireless modems with an Arduino shield and an USB adapter board. I bought all these parts from Sparkfun.com. I followed the instructions from the Lady Ada website to configure both modems so they can talk to each other. Once I finished soldering the XBee shield stackable headers I tried...

Netduino Plus (Part 2)

Netduino Plus with Arduino Protoshield

I have been playing with my Netduino Plus for about two weeks now and I love it. So far, the most interesting thing about the Netduino is the use of the .Net Micro Framework (.Net MF). Being a C# developer for a decade now, I really enjoy being able to take advantage of this language in...

Netduino Plus (Part 1)

The Netduino Plus

I just received my Netduino Plus. Netduino is an open source microcontroller development board working with the Microsoft .Net Micro Framework. The good news it that the pins layout of the Netduino is compatible with the pinout of the Arduino, which means you can re-use your Arduino shields. The Netduino Plus comes with a...
