Received my Arduino Uno and micro:bit starter kit

Postby FlierMate » Thu Sep 01, 2022 2:32 pm

So fast! It took only 2 days (and yesterday was public holiday) to receive my first order from Cytron, the Arduino Uno starter kit and 2x LED strips.

This is my second time playing with Arduino programming. My first encounter with Arduino is 2 years ago, building a simple audio visualizer from Windows sound.

I think I have forgotten most part of Arduino programming, barely remember Arduino IDE and avrdude.

Thank you, Cytron!

And now a button switch with serial port interfacing.

The PC end is C# .NET, showing "Button Pressed" if switch pressed.

After playing with Arduino Uno starter kit, this time I have ordered BBC micro:bit V2 quick start kit from Cytron, I am a happy customer, hope can receive within these few days.



From makecode website, micro:bit can be programmed with Blocks (low-code), Python or JavaScript. The board has in-built temperature sensor, unlike Arduino Uno R3, have to connect temperature sensor (and resistor) separately to breadboard.

Received my BBC micro:bit V2 quick start kit today!

I then program with Blocks, a simple one to show image pattern in LED:

The micro:bit V2 board is very small, smaller than PC mouse. And it has compass, microphone, antenna... and according to data sheet, also comes with temperature sensor. Wow!

Click download on MakeCode website, and instantly get the LED image pattern on micro:bit V2 board!

One more to showcase, just choose Basic from the toolbox.

Done a more complicated MakeCode program for micro:bit.

Below is a new Blocks program I created for counter. Since micro:bit has two buttons (A and B), pressing A will increment the counter, while pressing B will decrement the counter, minimum 0.
