Hi Everyone,1)If you still need some visual help putting your LOL together see this:-1.2)Once you get it all soldered up, run this test code linked below before we start the next class. It will light up all your LED’s:-2)The required reading for next class is:-3)If you want to get more advanced (next weeks homework), the official library for the shield is hosted here:The file you want to use is LoLShield V0.2.beta.zipa)To install this library create a folder in your Arduino folder called “libraries”, if it is not there already.b)Bring the LoL_Shield V0.2.beta.zip file into this new libraries folder, and unzip it there.c)restart Arduino and you should be able to see new examples in: File>Examples>LoLShield>d)Run the Basic_Test and fonttest sketches.-4)There is another great sketch and accompanying libraries called LoL-shield-dynamic-banner, that displays text you type into the serial window.-
Come to Oct 7th’s Class having done and read:
Review: 1.1-1.5 [Read it for what you don't know]
Variables Introduced: 2.0-2.2
Doing Math to Variables: 3.0-3.2
Serial Comm Intro: Read 4.0 and don’t worry if over your head. Do pay close attention to 4.1.
More Fun with Variables, Relational Operators: 2.17
*Switches Intro, with Pull-Up Resistor and De-bouncing: Read 5.0 and 5.1, Do 5.2 and 5.3
“If” and “Else If” Statements Intro: 2.12
*”While” and “For” Loop: Pages 2.13, 2.14
Come to Oct 14th’s Class having done and read:
2.4: Arrays Introduced (for Switches and LED’s)
2.10: Functions: Pages
7.1: LED’s Introduced and Reviewed
7.6: Making Knight Rider
2.15-2.16: Break and Switch Case:
5.4: Switches Intermediate:
2.19, 2.21: Logical Operators on Variables:
1) Change LED Blink Delay based on Amount of time Button is pressed.
2) Make 6 Different Light Sequences with 3-4 Switches and 4 LED’s. Use Logical Operator, Knight Rider Effect, Functions and/or Switch Cases.
Come to 21st’s Class having done and read:
Reading Analog Values: 5.6,
Map Function: 5.7
LED Fading, Color, and Control: 7.0, 7.2, 7.4, 7.5, 7.6
Show 7.4 and 7.5 in Class.
Digikey Page: [look at in class]
For example like this: 8 ohm, .25 Watt
Also see the Digikey Page on Speakers Experiment a little with options..: Digikey Catalog Page
1/8th in. audio jack: Digikey Part Number CP-3536-ND
You also need:
0.1 uF caps x 12ish
4.7 uF x 2ish
A few of each on hand:
100K ohm resistor
Analog Input: use a potentiometer to control the blinking of an LED.
Fading: uses an analog output (PWM pin) to fade an LED.
“Coffee-cup” Color Mixer:
Arduino Diecimila Hardware
