If you’ve got a project which calls for driving several groups of high-current LEDs (or other similar loads) with pulse-width-modulation, this pre-designed module/kit will make that easy for you. Most PIC or AVR microcontrollers do a great job of handling high current loads, but “high current” is relative to the chip, not what you might […]

This great video shows you how easy it is to wire-up a potentiometer to an Arduino microcontroller board, read the resistance value, and then control a standard hobby servo in unison. The simple software reads the analog to digital converter to read the pot value and then does a simple calculation to arrive at the […]
