Intro: 8 Bits Arduino Binary Counter
8 Bits Arduino Binary Counter van count from 0 to 255. This project is a counter with 8 LED's for being connected to Arduino pin 5, 3, 4, 7, 10, 11, 12 & 13 so that it counts from right to left by generating codes from Zero to 255.
Step 1: Bill of Materials
What you will need:
1-Arduino Uno R3
1-PCB Arduino Mega
1-USB-B to USB-A cable
2x5 Array of pins for Arduino
Maybe a little wire # 22
Step 2: Schematic Diagram
Check carefully, the schematic diagram of your project.
Step 3: Inserting the Array of Pins
Insert the array of pins into the Arduino holes, they should be inserted in the pins 3. 4, 5, 6, 7 and the pins 10, 11, 12, 13, GND.
Step 4: Solder the Pins
Once inserted the pins, proceed to solder them.
Step 5: Installing the LEDs
You can install the LEDs how you want, but this was the array that you did for the project. Even, I used a little bit wire #22 for doing a pair of connections. It can be appreciated on the photos. Note, you can use GND indirectly for connecting the common cathode pins without using solder even on the pin GND to Arduino.
Step 6: Completing the Project
Insert the project into the Arduino pins of your project. If you follow this project exactly, upload the code at: https://pastebin.com/by0EiYqd
but you only do the changes according your own pins used.
