I have had Induino ( Arduino rev 3 clone ) for some time now, I have spend time doing some small projects and getting acquainted with the whole thing. Now I plan on starting some serious project with it. I know this a project a very common project and many have been fiddling with such ideas for some time now, So I thought why not try this.
As for the start this is what I have planned.
- 8 X Backlit Tactile switch ( Will be making these using LEDS and Tact switchs )
- 2 X Knobs
- 2 X Faders
I have some 4051 shift registers lying around so will be using them for switchs and lights ( Since I would like to increase the number of switch's in future ), while researching I had read that its not a good idea to use same shift registers for inputs and outputs, Is it true ?
I will be starting to work on the schematic for this, but before that I thought it would be a good Idea to get pointers, tips and suggestions on the whole project.
It would be really good if experienced DIY's can share there ideas, suggestions and guide me on this.
