Introduction To Arduino Lecture / Workshop
Saturday 29th July 2023 saw 12 people attend the CCARC clubhouse for a lecture and workshop introducing the Arduino series of microcontrollers.
A Powerpoint presentation took us on a brief journey on the development of microcontrollers and how functionality has evolved from dedicated hardware to transducers interfaced to an Arduino and the functionality provided in software. The ease of use of the Arduino and support available was highlighted.
To show what’s possible, various ham radio Arduino projects were highlighted ranging from station accessories such as power meters, rotator controllers etc up to the micro BITX Arduino based transceiver. We had a look at the Arduino software to show some of it’s features.
How to prototype projects was covered before having a lunch provided by Glenn and Steve.
We wrapped up the session with a show and tell of Arduino parts and projects.
The audience went away with some support documentation and all remarked that they enjoyed the day and were eager to try an Arduino based project.
The CCARC clubhouse is open to members and visitors each Saturday from 10:30 AM. You can also find us on the Web, social media and Youtube or on the air via our many repeaters.
