Wow has it been a long time since i was last on here.
*blows dust off Arduino mega*
Like all good things, they take time and sometimes lifes prioritys like university and work take over. i havent really picked up an Arduino in months and July 10 i had to dismantle my pico but thankfully i recently restarted it and this has kick started my joy for Arduinos again. last week i placed an order for a second Arduino mega i also go TONNES of "stuff" leds, resistors, basic chips, pots, mini strepper, sometihnglike 4 different LCD screens all of which to play with.
The main project is Kinda on hiatus at the moment its kept safe and i do plan to pick it back up but for now i brought the second Mega to work on "other" functions. so i would like to now take it down a notch, forget LCD's for a moment, pH probes, temperature probes those can all be intergrated later. for now i want to work on lighting.
Specifically How to interface 2 chains of 3 watt led's via buckpucks and PWM, and an RTC.
Im going to start a new thread to help declutter this thread and my new drive for lighting.
the first side thread is here:http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1295647519/0#0
and its about implimenting the lights.
tag along if anyone has any benficial infomation!
