Guide To Full-Fledged Electronic Prototyping Using The Arduino Platform
In just 24 sessions of one hour or less, Sams Teach Yourself Arduino Programming in 24 Hours teaches you C programming using the Arduino, so you can start creating inspired “DIY” hardware projects of your own! Using this book’s straightforward, step-by-step approach, you will walk through everything from setting up your programming environment to mastering C syntax and features, interfacing your Arduino to performing full-fledged prototyping. Every hands-on lesson and example builds on what you have already learned, giving you a rock-solid foundation for real-world success!
Step-by-step instructions carefully walk you through the most common Arduino programming tasks.
Quizzes at the end of each chapter help you test your knowledge.
By the Way notes present interesting information related to the discussion.
Did You Know? tips offer advice or show you easier ways to perform tasks.
Watch Out! cautions alert you to possible problems and give you advice on how to avoid them.
Learn how to...
- Get the right Arduino hardware and accessories for your needs
- Download the Arduino IDE, install it, and link it to your Arduino
- Quickly create, compile, upload, and run your first Arduino program
- Master C syntax, decision control, strings, data structures, and functions
- Use pointers to work with memory—and avoid common mistakes
- Store data on your Arduino’s EEPROM or an external SD card
- Use existing hardware libraries, or create your own
- Send output and read input from analog devices or digital interfaces
- Create and handle interrupts in software and hardware
- Communicate with devices via the SPI interface and I2C protocol
- Work with analog and digital sensors
- Write Arduino C programs that control motors
- Connect an LCD to your Arduino, and code the output
- Install an Ethernet shield, configure an Ethernet connection, and write networking programs
- Create prototyping environments, use prototyping shields, and interface electronics to your Arduino
Arduino-Based ECU Development Board With Dual CAN Bus Interface
Leverage the power of an ARM Cortex M3 32-bit processing capability in combination with a dual CAN Bus interface to create your next CAN Bus, OBD-II or SAE J1939 application or prototype.
By combining our dual CAN port interface, the Arduino DUE microcontroller, an OBD2 or SAE J1939 cable, and open-source software libraries you are ready to go with powerful a turn-key Arduino-based dual CAN bus solution.
Use the vast resources of Arduino software (sketches) and hardware components (shields) to create your CAN Bus, OBD2, or SAE J1939 application.
Possible applications include:
- CAN to USB Gateway and Protocol Converter
- CAN to Wireless (WiFi, Bluetooth) Gateway
- SAE J1939 Gateway and Protocol Converter
- CAN Data Logger
- CAN Bridge (connecting 2 CAN networks, even at different baud rates)
- CAN Analyzer (in combination with a suitable Windows program)
- SAE J1939 Data Monitoring
- CAN Bus ECU Prototyping
- SAE J1939 ECU Prototyping
