Arduino Platform Designer: Dan Simpson, AE7IH Designer: Chuck Zappala, KE7SA

3 The Arduino Platform Micro-controller Many types, scalable
Programmable, IDE - Integrated Development Environment Analog & Digital I/O I/O add on components Add on circuit boards (Shields) Open source hardware and software Low cost, typically less than $40 Available through many outlets

4 Arduino Types and Sizes

5 Arduino Uno Version 3

6 Very Large Assortment of Sensors

7 Many Development Kits

8 An Arduino Shield (add on board) adding Bluetooth Wireless Capability

9 Shields and Modules are Stackable

10 Interactive Development Environment

11 Standard Libraries EEPROM - reading and writing to "permanent" storage
Ethernet - for connecting to the internet using the Arduino Ethernet Shield Firmata - for communicating with applications on the computer using a standard serial protocol. GSM - for connecting to a GSM/GRPS network with the GSM shield. LiquidCrystal - for controlling liquid crystal displays (LCDs) SD - for reading and writing SD cards Servo - for controlling servo motors SPI - for communicating with devices using the Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) Bus SoftwareSerial - for serial communication on any digital pins. Version 1.0 and later of Arduino incorporate Mikal Hart's NewSoftSerial library as SoftwareSerial. Stepper - for controlling stepper motors TFT - for drawing text , images, and shapes on the Arduino TFT screen WiFi - for connecting to the internet using the Arduino WiFi shield Wire - Two Wire Interface (TWI/I2C) for sending and receiving data over a net of devices or sensors.

13 C++ Code is called a “Sketch”
// Controlling a servo position using a potentiometer (variable resistor) // by Michal Rinott <> #include <Servo.h> Servo myservo; // create servo object to control a servo int potpin = 0; // analog pin used to connect the potentiometer int val; // variable to read the value from the analog pin void setup() { myservo.attach(9); // attaches the servo on pin 9 to the servo object } void loop() val = analogRead(potpin); // reads the value of the potentiometer (value between 0 and 1023) val = map(val, 0, 1023, 0, 179); // scale it to use it with the servo (value between 0 and 180) myservo.write(val); // sets the servo position according to the scaled value delay(15); // waits for the servo to get there

14 Parts and Resources

16 Demonstrating a Few Ideas for Arduino
Two Arduinos, one passing data to the other Use of various color displays Implementation of a touchscreen display How Arduino and custom PCB can be stacked Use of interrupts; the dual function generator is entirely interrupt driven. The LOOP statement is empty An optically isolated (to 500v) RS-232 link Using Arduino to pass data to PC USB port Using PC to display data in lieu of or in addition to the small color displays.

17 Function Generators, Two Versions
Top: Dual Function Generator with touchscreen based on Arduino Mega Bottom: Early single output version, LCD screen using Arduino UNO.

18 Arduino-based Function Generator
Based on an Arduino Mega, this incorporates a touch screen front panel to control two separate function generators, each capable of sine, square, triangle wave generation from sub-Hz to about 13 Mhz. Two custom designed PCBs are used for the frequency generation; the Arduino does all of the touch screen work. Since the generators are completely independent, one can be used to modulate the other in either AM or FM mode. In addition, it has external inputs that can be used to measure and display frequency.

19 Function Generator, Inside view
Board stack: Arduino Mega left; two sig gen boards, then touchscreen display board.

20 Solar Monitor Display Based on a 5” 800 x 480 pixel display, this system uses two “Ardweeny” modules, one for measurement and the other for display management linked by RS232

21 Solar Monitoring System A/D & Amps
This is the measurement end. It does the A/D conversion and ships the result over to the display end via RS-232. It’s optically coupled for isolation.

22 Solar Monitoring System Display
The display end showing the back of the display driver board and the display logic PCB with the “Ardweeny” in the lower right.

23 Solar Monitoring System, PC Display
This is more or less the same display running on a PC using Processing 2 language, similar to Visual Basic. The Ardweeny passes data to the PC via USB. Both displays can run simultaneously and output data to an Excel file.

25 The Raspberry Pi Platform
Low cost credit-card sized computer Uses various Linux based kernel OS, on board, GUI Uses ARM1176JZF-S (ARMv6k) 700 MHz CPU, system on a chip 256 MB up to 512 MB Uses an external computer monitor, keyboard and mouse Needs a 5 volt micro USB power supply Uses the Scratch, Python, C, C++, Java, and Ruby languages Does just about everything a full PC does Driver APIs for expandability Costs typically less than $40 Widely available through many outlets
