Arduino – LED logarithmic fade

Yet another Arduino LED fade effect. Similar to Arduino – LED linear fade. However, this one is using logarithmic scale for the delay time. It gives a nice “breathing” LED light effect. With properly adjusted settings it can look like a sleep LED effect in a macbook. This example Arduino project lights the basic LED connected in series with … Read more

Arduino – LED linear fade

This article explains how to make an example Arduino project that lights the basic LED (connected in series with resistor to pin 11) using linear fade effect. To build a nice fade effect you need to know how to change the LED brightness, first. The complete code is also on GitHub, here. Linear Fade effect changes the LED brightness … Read more

Arduino – basic LED blink

Yet another Arduino blinking LED example. This one is using BasicLed class to make the LED control more comfortable. The code is on Github, here. Parts Required arduino board (i.e. Arduino/Genuino UNO) basic LED (i.e. on-board LED) Software This code is written in C++ and can be compiled using an Arduino IDE. All information about how to compile this project is here. … Read more

[MBAVR-3] Minimalist development board for ATmega8/ATmega88/ATmega168/ATmega328

This is another quick how-to guide of making a minimalist development board for AVR. This time is about MBAVR-3 development board designed for megaAVR MCUs like ATmega8, ATmega88, ATmega168 or ATmega328. It is a 3rd project in series of MBAVR familly home-made boards in order to create an nice environment for rapid development. I did … Read more
