Wow, like an unmoderated on-line class room. Easy to follow and it actually makes sense. Read a few things about Ohm's law, voltage and current law and lessons from long ago came back to me. Maybe after all these years I might finelly understand how electronics actually work (at least at a basic level).
You've got resources you don't even know about. I keep a browser open when I code, tabs open to the Arduino on web pages I need and all zoomed in to easy-read size. It's way easier to use than my old reference manuals.
Yep HF is my friend. I have the same visor I use for fly tying and fly rod building. I too use magnifiers, usually 3X. I Also use those very same boxes, I also use cabinets that hang on the wall. They have 15 or 20 drawers and are very good for this kind of thing. I think I only pay $15 at Menards.
I haven't gone dry fly fishing since 1972. What an experience every time! Come alive when the trout hits!
Do you know the AWG for the wire wrap and where did you purchase your jumpers?
Thanks for the information.
It says 22 ga where I got the set. The fit in breadboard holes is snug, they stay in place but are a pain for trying quick check work.
Neat junk and not so neat junk. Prices neither best nor worst. They don't have DuPont Cables.
I pay less than $3 for 1A 5V regulated switching PS wall warts from China. That's all I need for most things 5V. But these 5A boxes for $7, I might jump though it'd be easier if I lived in Van Nuys!
If you spend idle time shopping around before buying, ahhhhh you know!
So the Arduino can be powered from the USB port?
And communicate if the port's not just a charger but a PC USB. That's how you get the IDE program into the chip (the easy way at least) and IO with Serial Monitor or your own program or terminal emulator. Since IDE 1.6 the max USB serial rate is 250000 baud, into SPI bus speed. You don't have to wait long for the serial output buffer to empty at that rate, it's 40 microseconds per char and yes, Arduino can do useful things in between -- that's 640 cycles on an 8 bit RISC.
