The resistor limits the current which might go in and out of whatever is driving the base of the transistor,
such as an arduino pin.

Is it possible for somebody to explain me why I need to use a resistor on the base from the transistor? I did alot of reading about why a resistor is needed on the base from the transistor (as NPN switch), but I keep seeing different answer on different forums this makes me understand it less and less. So if someone briefly can explain why a resistor is needed on the base (and how you calculate it) I would be very happy with it :)!

sorry for the newbie questions, still in the learning process  :)


It's because once the voltage applied across the emitter/base junction of a transistor is higher then the forward voltage drop rating for that base/emitter junction it will fully turn on and act like a short circuit drawing current well in excess of it's maximum base current limit (and the maximum output current being drawn from say an arduino output pin when set high that one might wire to the base terminal), so something in the base circuit needs to limit the base current to at or below it's maximum rated current value, and a resistor wired in series with the base terminal just happens to be the simplest way to do that.

Thanks for the explanations, now I understand why I needed it.

I got another question about the 13th pin from arduino. According to arduino pin 13th has an built in resistor so I can directly put a LED to pin 13 and ground. When I connect a column on pin 13 does the LEDs shine less bright because there is an extra resistor built in on pin 13(my 220ohm resistor + arduino uno pin 13th resistor?)

There is a series resistor/led wired to pin 13 mounted on most arduino boards. However the shield pin 13 is wired directly to the AVR pin so the pin is not protected by the on board resistor, so all the same current rules apply to using pin 13 as with any other AVR I/O pin.

All the components are send today! Soon I will start building the cube :smiley-mr-green:.

A little programming question. What will happen when I don't use a delay between switching on and off the LED. I would guess it wouldnt turn on the LED because it's been turned on and off too fast. Will I do damage on any components if I don't use delay.

And it's true the arduino pin can take up to 200mA? So I will be able to put on 9 LEDs on 1 plane ( 9 * ~15mA= 135mA). Thanks for the help again :smiley-roll-blue:.

Another video :), multiplexed so only 1 layer is lit on any given time(im using array's and for loops to turn on the LEDs, easier to program/the code is shorter):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4JEfAUBjKc

edit:
this code has even less lines as the one that I showed 2 posts back :).

Neat! Nice work. Would you mind posting the new code as a reference?  Definitely think it would be helpful for me as jump into the programming of my cube.  Thanks.

Yep no problem(this code is a little different than showed in the video):

Don't know how, but Arduino001 should be me (WonderTiger),  Weird..... Thanks anyway for your positive reply :D! (and thanks ofcourse for sharing your code as well ;))

WonderTiger today the cache has been playing some bad pranks to a few people.
monday we'll have a look at it and fix it.

My apologies WonderTiger. I just looked at the name of the person that posted the code without realising that this was not the OP... opps  :smiley-mr-green:

p.s - that damn cache is responsible for a lot of misunderstandings on the web

No problem, I just thought it was weird because I was sure I made the post  :smiley-mr-green:. Anyway, my next project will be 5x5x5. I already ordered some shift register to experiment with and learn the basics of them :), I probably going to use shift registers on my 3x3x3 cube first to make sure I understand the programming and the way the shift registers work.
