Learning The Basics

Updated: Feb 16

To start this module off, I have began to learn about the breadboard, which makes it easier to wire together devices such as LED's, sensors, buzzers and buttons. With experience of using Raspberry Pi's in the past, I already knew how to use the pins on the actual device. However, I had never used a breadboard before - until today.

I wired together the breadboard with my LED's to the Arduino Uno, and connected it to the relevant live pins, and the ground pin on the device. I then used Arduino software to program the 2 LED's I had connected to the device.

I attached the two LED's to the same pin, allowing the LED's to flash at the same time. I did this by switching the pin on, adding a delay, then switching the pin off again, and another delay. I added this code into the loop, so this would repeat this process over and over.

This is what the breadboard looked like when attached to the Arduino. The green and blue LED's can be seen in the background lit up.
