PreLab1 Electronics Intro

Pre Lab Assignment 1: Introduction to Electronics and Sensors

Due at beginning of Lab week 1.


Look at the Spec Sheet of the Arduino Uno and find the recommended operating condition limit for each DC Current per I/O Pin = ?

Look at the Spec Sheet of the LED and find the Continuous Forward Current = ?

Review page 13 of the reading assignment to determine a resistor value for operating the LED at the maximum brightness that will not exceed the spec of the Arduino or LED (it is not the value shown in the example). R = ?

If you own a laptop (Windows, Mac or Linux),please download the Arduino program and bring to lab. If you do not own a laptop there are desktop computers you can use in the lab.
