MKR VIDOR 4000 Simple DVM

Posted by rsc Jul 16, 2019
Here's a simple DVM made from an Arduino VIDOR 4000. A potentiometer is placed in between VCC and GND with the wiper connected to analog input A3. The value of the analog input is read and then shown through the HDMI to a monitor screen. The arduino example code for showing the Arduino logo was modified for this project. Here is the code listing: //MKR VIDOR 4000 Simple DVM //R. Scott Coppersmith //Last Edit 16July2019 #include "VidorGraphics.h" #include "Vidor_GFX.h" Vidor_GFX  vdg ...
