:o Couldn't find an Edit button, but here it is: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage

Well, that should be enough for now.... look at my LEDs blink... ahh.. smiley

Since it is C I am looking for, the book about microprocessors I read handles code for the PIC, so can I assume that the syntax is the same?? Is there any reference on this site that will list all codes suported by the arduino??

I will look through all the example codes!! I am just a beginner in this whole electronics thing.

I just ordered my first few Arduino boards and am ready to jump intoo the new (for me it is) world off microprocessors.

I just read the book Physical Computing: Sensing and Controlling the Physical World with Computers and just got more excited about the posibilities.

I have no coding experiencce (I can Patch in vvvv, and understand Basic) so I wonder what books you all recommend me to learn C (or do I need to know C# or C++??) to learn to program the Arduino.

Hope I get some nice advises from you all. (will also settle for a website)

As a beginner, I am starting to wonder about the use off Equal values.

What is the difference between  

A = B or A == B ??????

The SimpleMessageSystem looks rather easy compared with firmata  :-[
(but it is limited, I know)

But WOW!! Did I miss that there is already work done for vvvv smiley How cool is that!!
I need to pay better attention!!

So I just have to bite the bullet and go for Firmata thnx for pointing it out Melis!! smiley

edit: Awesome work from mr. Benefit!! WOoooooopy!!

Yeh, saw your patch and code nice work smiley

But my trouble isn't reading the arduino with vvvv, but let the Arduino do the stuff I want!!
(sending a textstring from vvvv to Arduino, and than Arduno must split the string and fill the variables).

edit:

ahh.. okay.. after reading the forums for an hour I a hope I can use SmimpleMessageSystem smiley
(for others: I mean this:http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/SimpleMessageSystem)

Hope I can control Arduino with vvvv now smiley

wanted to check this out before i got into the Arduino scene:

I am in the same situation, so wondered if anyone had any luck, before I order 10 boards I wanne hook up in a big instalation.

Reading what teh arduino can do, I must say, prety impressed.

For Windows

You can try GlovePie/MIDIyoke combo. GlovePie can translate many types off inputs to MIDI code, and MIDIyoke can be used as a bridge between Glovepie and your Windows aplication. MIDIyoke is a virtual MIDI port (we use it to hook up our Wii to the computer)

Glovepie, MIDI Yoke and an

just wanted to say: AWESOME THREAD!! smiley

Thanx for your wiki link neillzero smiley

just wondered what LCD display I should get to start with.....

 :o Thnx for the expleantion, I understand it (a bit)

So, when I PWM an transistor with 1/2 the ammount off volts as the collector recieves, the emitter shall output 1/2 volts that the emitter is recieveing .
(this is lost in translation)

Sounds logic.

Ow dear, now I am confushed  :-/ But thnx for the replies!!

Why I should I use another transistor to PWM the BC327?

New Drawing, Add PWM - Base resistor



These LEDs now have a commen ehhh.... CATHODE (-)
(is this correct before I order the wrong ones?)

 smiley-grin You people are genuise!!! Thnx worapoht

I asked around and they said the same thing as I read now:

- A BC377 should do the trick. (NPN?)
- Place the LEDs before the source off the transistor (still not clear why, but I believe you all!!)
- And add an Base resistor between the PWM pin and the Base pin (4.7 kOhm?)

I am afraid I have an old Amtel on my old arduino  :'(

I made my scheme with TinyCad (took me 1 hour to download, figure out, draw and post!!)

Thank you all!! smiley Now I need to think about LEDs... all shops in my country are EXPENSIVE!! (I am dutch smiley-wink smiley-wink )

Well, thnx again for the info, This is getting cool!!

I hear/read that my Arduino has 6 PWM pins, but looking to the Amtel PinMapping, I only end up with 3 PWM pins. 1 RGB Color is cool though, 2 would be cooler smiley-wink

When I got this to work, I get me some Xbeez and build a wireless table, with LED inside, a bit like this one.

Perhaps I add a 64 leds (using this turorial) starlfield.

Enough about the LEDs now, I need to find me a decent transistor, any hints?

smiley Is it realy that easy? HOW COOL!!!   Thnx Cheater  8-)

Now, what resistor is use-able for this? And what LEDs do you recommend me?

EDIT: DELETED DANGEROUS DRAWING

Can do some resistor calculation once I know what the LEDs want on how my powersuply will be smiley
