1  Using Arduino / LEDs and Multiplexing / Program to convert graphics into Arduino array's on: December 14, 2013, 10:34:11 pm
Hi everyone,

I have made a program in Visual Studio that allows you to import graphics and then at the click of a button, it will spit out an Arduino array which you just need to paste into your arduino sketch. Please note that this program requires that you have VB.NET 4.5 installed which you can download from here:

you can download the converter here:

And here is a tutorial video showing you how to use it (be sure to watch in full screen)

I made the program specifically for RGB LED matrix displays as a super simple way of getting graphics to the Arduino sketch.



Thank you everyone,

2  Development / Other Hardware Development / My latest project - The PICnDuino (Arduino and Amicus18 in one) on: November 24, 2012, 09:01:41 pm
Hi everyone. I am a big fan of the Arduino platform which I have recently adopted (I started out years ago using just PIC's)

I have found it interesting to see the differences between the two microcontroller brands and their IDE's.

This led me to make the PICnDuino. The PICnDuino contains two microcontrollers (an Atmega and a PIC) and is compatible with both Arduino and Amicus18 (Amicus18 is the PIC version of Arduino - and is programmed in Basic). It plugs straight into your USB port and provides a fantastic opportunity for you to learn two different languages for two different microcontrollers.


I have started a Kickstarter campaign in order to get the PICnDuino out into the community. If it's something you find interesting then feel free to check out the campaign.

Thanks guys,
