In December 2011, Arduino 1.0 used to be published. This replaced a number of issues that experience prompted the sketches for initiatives 10, 27, and 28 during this e-book to wreck. to mend this, it is important to get the most recent models of the Keypad and IRRemote libraries. * The Keypad library has been up-to-date for Arduino 1.0 by means of its unique creators and will be downloaded from the following: http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/Keypad * Ken Shiriff's IRRemote library has been up-to-date and will be downloaded from right here: http://www.arduinoevilgenius.com/new-downloads

Digital Inputs and Outputs The digital pins 0 to 12 can all be used as either an input or an output. This is set in your sketch. Since you are going to be connecting electronics to one of these pins, it is unlikely that you are going to want to change the mode of a pin. That is, once a pin is set to be an output, you are not going to change it to be an input midway through a sketch. For this reason, it is a convention to set the direction of a digital pin in the setup function that must be defined in every sketch.
This page intentionally left blank CHAPTER 2 A Tour of Arduino IN THIS CHAPTER, we look at the hardware of the Arduino board and also of the microcontroller at its heart. In fact, the board basically just provides support to the microcontroller, extending its pins to the connectors so that you can connect hardware to them and providing a USB link for downloading sketches, etc. processor, a kilobyte of random access memory (RAM) for holding data, a few kilobytes of erasable programmable read-only memory (EPROM) or Flash memory for holding our programs, and it has input and output pins.
We should then have our message flashed to us in Morse code. Project 4 High-Brightness Morse Code Translator The little LED on Project 3 is unlikely to be visible from the ship on the horizon being lured by our bogus Evil Genius distress message. So in this project, we are going to up the power and use a 1W Luxeon LED. These LEDs are extremely bright and all the light comes from a tiny little area in the center, so to avoid any possibility of retina damage, do not stare directly into it. We also look at how, with a bit of soldering, we can make this project into a shield that can be plugged into our Arduino board.
