Register for this course at our site: Arduino Interfaces
Darlington Arrays or Drivers are for driving higher powered devices from an Arduino. So devices such as a 12 volt string of LED’s or a small motor can be driven using a Darlington Array. Come to this class to learn how to increase voltage available for your projects, using your Arduino with the Darlington Arrays.
Each individual class will introduce how to interface one of these devices to an Arduino or similar device. Make sure to check the weekly class list to see which device interface is being offered for the week you are choosing!
These special Arduino interface classes are offered as one-day evening classes. Classes are Tuesday evenings, from 6:00-8:00pm, $55 per class. On Wednesday evenings, open lab time is available with the instructor from 6:00-8:00pm, for $15 per session. Children with sufficient experience are welcome to attend Arduino interface classes. Under 15, accompaniment of an adult is requested (accompanying adult doesn’t have to pay unless they wish to attend also!). Classes will be limited to 10 students.
Beginning Arduino or BioDynamic Art, or equivalent expertise using an Arduino device.
Students should bring their own Arduino or similar device (Uno, etc), or may purchase one from the instructor. Other necessary materials will be provided by instructor as part of the class fee.
About the Instructor
My name is Steve Rabbon. I am also called Oso Tama, by my friends. I am a retired electrical engineer out of San Diego and the Silicon Valley. I worked for many years designing specialized circuitry and systems, including robotics, sonar system design, and aerospace/military systems design.
I love helping people design systems that are functional yet beautiful, and really enjoy working with artists who want to incorporate technology into their artwork. My specialties are including light, sound, and other interactive response mechanisms into art pieces, using Arduino or Raspberry Pi processors. I can design circuits for almost any need, and love to come up with solutions to technical design problems (feel free to bring me yours!). I was a member of a “fast response” design team, who’s job it was to come up with system-wide solutions in the shortest time possible. I love teaching others what I’ve learned, so they can come up with better designs.
Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
