Some weeks ago I got some Adafruit NeoPixel, a compact RGB LED module. Each LED module has a WS2812 chip that only needs three wires: power, ground and data. The data protocol is self-clocking, at a rate of 800KHz. The LED modules can be chained to build longer LED stripes. (For more details see the […]
I’ve been very busy over the last weeks, but now I’ve taken some time to get deeper into the “core electronics part”, which simply means that I got a breadboard and some electronic components like resistors, transistors, LEDs and a lot of wires.
The first step was to get a normal LED on the breadboard […]
First of all: using the ethernet connection with the FEZ Panda II works well if you follow the steps from GHIElectronic’s eBook “FEZ Internet of Things”. You just set up MAC, IP, netmask, gateway and DNS server settings and you are ready to go.
But, there is actually a drawback: although the FEZ Panda II […]
After my first and very simple Netduino project, the traffic lights, I wanted to get a little step further. So I’ve put together some lines of code to make the LEDs show the sequence red, yellow, green, off with a fixed interval in between. And I want this interval to be controllable with the Variable […]
