Arduino Basic  -  Drawing Set 1001

The bare minimum circuitry needed to power up and run the Atmel chip for Arduino projects. This is the starting point of most of the projects listed here.

Sources used in developing this project:

2 Axis Solar Tracker  -  Drawing Set 1002

 

Using a sensor array and DC motors driven by relays this project will allow solar panels to follow the sun. This project was mainly developed using the example code that comes with the Arduino Software download.

Charge Controller  -  Drawing Set 1003

 

A Peak Power Battery Charger designed for a 12 volt system.

This project requires programming the Atmel chip on the Arduino and transplanting it to this assembly. You will also need the Arduino Basic prints to complete this project.

NOTE:
I have not built this project yet. Minor revisions and design changes may be in order.

LED Driver / Constant Current Dc to DC Power Supply

 

Not a microcontroller project, but useful for learning about DC to DC constant current power supplies.

This LED driver powers four 1W or two 3W LED's. High efficiency Switch Mode operation. Driven from 6-12v AC or 9-18v DC source. 350mA or 700mA configurations. 6 to 14 VAC or 9-18 VDC. Can also be used for fixed current NiCd/NiMH battery charging circuit.
