Arduino

Post by Motorola man on Sat Aug 01, 2015 1:01 am

Has anyone here ever played around with Arduino? If so, can you recommend what I might need to get started (hardware, software, publications, etc)? I've got a few project ideas that I think would be well suited for this platform.
Thanks,
Dave

Here is an offering from the only source I have seen for the equipment. they also have all kinds of products. Do a search using arduino as the keyword.

MAKE  has a lot of good books and kits for electronics and arduino.

Radio Shack also makes kits to work with their project books.

One of THE places on the Internet to read and see what amazing things have been built with this "little" item is the Instructables Website.

I really should get out into the general population more. I have no idea what you guys are talking about. Rolling Eyes

I'm such an idiot when it comes to "technological" stuff. I never think of Google or those places. With Google, I don't get to talk to you guys. When I fall on my sword and ask, I do. Does that make sense?

I use Arduino for projects that would get far too complicated to build and troubleshoot using individual components. Having a microprocessor run everything is a lot simpler if you don't mind doing the programming. I took my first college-level programming class in 1967, so I can handle it okay. Sometimes I feel as though I began as a computer programmer for King Tut.  farao

One project that I am still putting the polishing touches on is a telephone central office simulator. It has two modular phone jacks. You can plug two items of telephone equipment into the jacks and they can dial and communicate with each other as though plugged into conventional telephone system jacks. I built it to test things like phone line frequency extenders used for radio remote broadcasts. It is a fairly complex beast, as it has to provide battery, dial tone, ringing voltage, and call progress tones. It has to recognize DTMF (touch tone) and rotary (pulse) dialing, and replicate everything that a central office does when a call is placed. The Arduino has to run several relays, drive several LEDs, decode several switches set by the user, and control a variety of chips including a DTMF decoder and a call progress tone generator.

The only reference that I use is the Arduino Cookbook (I bought physical and electronic copies). I designed and built my own development platform, which includes an Arduino Uno, an IC breadboard, a cable to connect to a shop power supply, and a couple of on-board voltage regulators to provide working voltages. I write my own software, and have a shop full of parts and equipment, plus more parts and equipment in the travelling inventory in my Explorer for work.

This post inspired me to finally get one... It arrived today thanks to my "friends" at Mouser.
