****EPISODE TITLE**** element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   In a previous project, we looked at how to attach a TFT LCD screen to a Raspberry Pi to build a small-form-factor project. But what if your project doesn't need quite as much horsepower? What if you just need to display shapes and colors on a screen with no operating system and nearly instant boot times? This is where a TFT LCD screen on Arduino comes in handy. In this video, we'l ...
****EPISODE TITLE**** element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   The Arduino platform is great for making LEDs blink and driving small displays, but what happens when you need to display more complex information? For Project ColorTyme, I need to drive 6x 14-segment "starburst" style alphanumeric LED displays, but pins are at a premium. To solve the problem, we'll incorporate the MAX7219 LED display driver; however, it's an imperfect solution: T ...
****EPISODE TITLE**** element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   Previously, we looked at how to build a simple DIY Arduino clock. Unfortunately, if power to the clock is disconnected, the whole thing has to be reset. To solve that problem, we're going to add an Arduino battery backup real time clock module based on the DS1307 RTC package. Instead of purchasing a pre-made part, we'll walk through how to build a DIY Arduino RTC module from scrat ...
*****TITLE HERE***** element14 presents  |  Matt Eargle's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   Clocks are a rite of passage for hardware hackers, and with this video you can start working on your DIY Clock merit badge using the Arduino platform to build a basic Arduino clock. This project builds on the Arduino Fortune Teller project and teaches programming concepts like timing and actively updating a display, so you can use it as a springboard for many more complicated project ...
****EPISODE TITLE**** element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   Where does one person's interpretation of a color end and another person's begin? How do we universally define colors displayed on modern screens? What is the equivalent of Pantone for digital documents? In this video, we'll explore how color is displayed on modern LCD/LED screens before going into depth on how hexadecimal color codes work as a technological standard to convey col ...
EPISODE TITLE AND LINK element14 presents  |  AirborneSurfer's VCP Profile |  Project Videos   Hexadecimal notation may look daunting, but with a little know-how and the right perspective, it can become extremely easy to learn how to read hex numbers. In this video, we'll learn how to read hexadecimal numbers, how to count hexadecimal numbers, how to write hexadecimal numbers, and how to convert hexadecimal numbers. ...
