This Meetup was canceled.
Come join us at TheLab.ms Education Center in Plano TX to learn how to use shiftregisters to expand the number of available output ports on the Arduino UNO. In this class we will be covering the following:
Shift registers Part 1: What are shift registers (http://bit.ly/2h8rMaZ)(5:35) Part 1 is an introduction to shift registers, where I explain how these devices work.
Shift registers Part 2: 8-LED circuit (http://bit.ly/2h8qnB8) (3:50) Part 2 sets up the first demonstration, where the Arduino controls 8 LED via a shift register
Shift registers Part 3: 8-LED circuit (http://bit.ly/2hW7ph5) (9:27) Part 3 concludes the first demonstration, where the Arduino controls 8 LED via a shift register
Shift registers Part 4: 16-LED circuit (http://bit.ly/2gSMkX7) (7:34) Part 4 presents the second demonstration, where the Arduino controls 16 LED via two shift registers connected in daisy-chain. Parts used in this workshop:
2 x 74HC595N shift register chips (http://amzn.to/2h2aEXX) 16 x 5mm LEDs (http://amzn.to/2g07eDj) 2 x 220μF capacitors (http://amzn.to/2h27LGO) 16 x 200Ω resistors (http://amzn.to/2gUioag) Course work for this class comes from Arduino Step By Step (http://goo.gl/5Uv71ft) which has over 20 hours of content in 110 lectures. These classes are designed for anyone interested in learning electronic design and C programming. No experience is required. Access to the course material is free at our meetups.
