EEE301: Advanced Arduino - Displays
Class Number 627-117614

A working Arduino display is a vital component to making interactive products, enabling them to feed information and simple graphics back to you and your users without being attached to a computer. In this installment of the Arduino programming series, you will learn how to attach a working display to your Arduino project and feed it information to display.

You will learn both the hardware and software aspects of working with an LCD screen on your Arduino, practice feeding data to it and make the display respond to values input by buttons and a temperature-sensing thermistor. Finally, you will have the opportunity to make a button-controlled animated stick figure.

PREREQUISITES:
  • You should be able to program an Arduino reasonably well. Our Arduino Level 2 and 3 classes will prepare you for this class.

  • Please bring an assembled Arduino board with you to this class. You can bring the one you built in the Arduino Level 1 class, or you may bring one you have purchased. It needs to have a USB port for programming and headers to attach it to jumper leads or a breadboard.
MATERIALS FEE: This class uses a 1.44" TFT color display that is yours to keep after the class. The price of the class covers the $20 materials fee. Note: If you are signing up for this class using an Unlimited Class Pass or a Maker SBU pass, you will need to pay the $20 materials fee to the front desk before class.
