Installing Arduino IDE And Driver

When we get the development board, we firstly need to install the Arduino IDE and driver. The related files can be found on the official website. The following links you could refer to: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/OldSoftwareReleases#1.5.x Next to introduce installation method of Arduino-1.5.6 version IDEfor Windows system. Download arduino-1.5.6-r2-windows.zip compressed folder and unzip it. Double click Arduino-1.5.6 .exe file

Next to install Nano control board. This control board uses ATmega32u4 main chip and comes with USB to serial port function. For Windows 10 system, the computer will automatically install the driver after connecting the Nano control board to the computer with a Nano USB cable. Click Computer--Properties--Device Manager, as shown below.
thumb

For other systems (Windows system), after connecting to the computer, the unknown device is displayed in the device manager. We can refer to the method of changing the driver on the computer( Windows system) and reinstalling the driver.

LED Blinking

Description The blinking LED experiment is quite simple. In this experiment, we’ll complete experiment using other digital I/O ports and external light.


Equipment

  • Nano control board*1
  • USB cable*1
  • LED*1
  • 220Ω Resistor*1
  • Breadboard*1
  • Male to female Dupont Lines

Test Code

int led = 2;                     //Define digital port 2
void setup()
{
  pinMode(led, OUTPUT);     //Set led to output}
void loop()
{
  digitalWrite(led, HIGH);   //Turn on led
   delay(1000); //delay for 1000ms              
  digitalWrite(led, LOW);    //Turn off led
  delay(1000);//delay for 1000ms 
}

Test Result
After downloading program, you will see the LED connected to IO port blinking, with an interval approximately one second. The blinking LED experiment is now completed.

Advertising Lights

Description
In life, we often see some billboards composed of colorful led lights. Different effects shown on billboard as lights change. In this section, we simulate the effect of advertising lights with LED lights.

Equipment

  • Nano control board*1
  • USB cable*1
  • LED*5
  • 220Ω Resistor*5
  • Breadboard*1
  • Male to female Dupont Lines
  • Male to male Dupont Lines

Test Code

int BASE = 2 ;  //the first LED is connected to I/O port
int NUM = 5;   //the sum of LED
void setup()
{
   for (int i = BASE; i < BASE + NUM; i ++) 
   {
     pinMode(i, OUTPUT);   //set I/O port to output     }
}
void loop()
{
   for (int i = BASE; i < BASE + NUM; i ++) 
   {
     digitalWrite(i, HIGH);    //set I/O into “HIGH”, light is on
     delay(200);        //delay
   }
   for (int i = BASE; i < BASE + NUM; i ++) 
   {
     digitalWrite(i, LOW);    //set I/O to “LOW”", light is off
     delay(200);        //delay
   }  
}


Test Result
After downloading the program, the external small light gradually brightens then darkens, and alternates.

Button Controlling LED

Description
I/O port means interface for INPUT and OUTPUT. Up until now, we’ve only used the output function. In this experiment, we will try to use the input function, which is to read the output value of device. We’ll complete an experiment with use 1 button and 1 LED to give you a better understanding of the I/O function.

Equipment

  • Nano control board*1
  • USB cable*1
  • LED*1
  • Button *1
  • 220Ω Resistor*1
  • 10KΩ Resistor*1
  • Breadboard*1
  • Male to female Dupont Lines
  • Male to male Dupont Lines

Test Code

int ledPin = 11;  //define digital port 11
int inputPin = 3; //define digital port 3
void setup() 
{
pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);   //set ledPinto to output
pinMode(inputPin, INPUT); //set inputPin to input 
}
void loop()
{
int val = digitalRead(inputPin);
//set digital variable val,read the value of digital port 3,assign the value for val 
if (val == LOW) //when val is low level,LED gets dark
{ 
digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW); // LED gets dark
}
 else 
{
digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH); // LED gets bright
}
}

Test Result
After downloading the program and powering on, the LED light is on when the button is pressed, otherwise it is off.

RGB LED

Description

RGB lights can adjust the intensity of three primary colors (red / blue / green) through the PWM voltage input of the three pins R, G, and B to achieve the full-color mixing effect. In this experiment, we control the RGB lights to display different colors by controlling the PWM values of the three PWM ports. The description of the RGB light interfaces are shown below.

Test Code

int redpin = 11; //select the pin for the red LED
int greenpin =10;// select the pin for the green LED
int bluepin =9; // select the pin for the blue LED
int val;

void setup() {
  pinMode(redpin, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(bluepin, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(greenpin, OUTPUT);
  Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop() 
{
for(val=255; val>0; val--)
  {
   analogWrite(11, val);
   analogWrite(10, 255-val);
   analogWrite(9, 128-val);
   delay(1); 
  }
for(val=0; val<255; val++)
  {
   analogWrite(11, val);
   analogWrite(10, 255-val);
   analogWrite(9, 128-val);
   delay(1); 
  }
 Serial.println(val, DEC);
}


Test Result

After downloading the program and powering on, the external RGB light displays various colors alternately.
