My Notes – Electronics and Embedding Programming.


We covered Electronics and Embedded Programming. Discussions on Arduino and the best places to purchase. I have now purchased Sintron new medium Uno r3 starter kit from Amazon. Places to purchase parts for our circuits:


Suggested web sites to purchase parts.



UK RS online

We covered electronics and their symbols IMG_0188

We discussed microcontrollers (Atmel), fritzing (cutting and designing our Fr1 board) if you have the knowledge of how to design and cut your own you will be able to use flexible boards and use in textiles etc.




Basic parts of wiring an arduino :

Breadboard, 22 AWG wire, 7805 voltage reg. 2 leds, 2 220 Ohms resistors, 1 10k Ohms resistor, 2 10 UF capacitors, 16 Mhz clock crystal, 2 22 PF capacitators. Off button Omran type B3F and Atmel Atmega 8/ 168 AVR micro controller.

Resistor colour code ohms: BLACK 1, BROWN 2, RED 3, ORANGE 4, YELLOW 5, GREEN 6, BLUE 7, VIOLET 8, GREY 9, WHITE 10.

I have soldered and created a basic PCB board for LED light to be used with Arduino.


The L.E.D has two legs, one leg longer than other, the long + short –

Place the long + into pin 13 and – in GND. Pin 13 on Arduino has a built in resistor. Then plug in usb to computer and Arduino, ready to program. You will notice on the arduino analog inputs are to the left and digital to the right.


Download Arduino software  this is coding and what your operating window will look like:



// the setup function runs once when you press reset or power the board
void setup() {
// initialize digital pin 13 as an output.
pinMode(13, OUTPUT);

// the loop function runs over and over again forever
void loop() {
digitalWrite(13, HIGH); // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level)
); // wait for a second
digitalWrite(13, LOW); // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
delay(1000); // wait for a second

Assignment is to incase circuit board and lights into your chosen letter (F) using your own subject in the creative process.
