Arduino Analog Input Image credit: Tod Kurt • Resolution: the number of different voltage levels (i.e., states) used to discretize an input signal • Resolution values range from 256 states (8 bits) to 4,294,967,296 states (32 bits) • The Arduino uses 1024 states (10 bits) • Smallest measurable voltage change is 5V/1024 or 4.8 mV • Maximum sample rate is 10,000 times a second

Topic 3: Analog Output • Can a digital devise produce analog output? Image from Theory and Practice of Tangible User Interfaces at UC Berkley • Analog output can be simulated using pulse width modulation (PWM)

Pulse Width Modulation • Can’t use digital pins to directly supply say 2.5V, but can pulse the output on and off really fast to produce the same effect • The on-off pulsing happens so quickly, the connected output device “sees” the result as a reduction in the voltage Image from Theory and Practice of Tangible User Interfaces at UC Berkley

Serial Communication • Compiling turns your program into binary data (ones and zeros) • Uploading sends the bits through USB cable to the Arduino • The two LEDs near the USB connector blink when data is transmitted • RX blinks when the Arduino is receiving data • TX blinks when the Arduino is transmitting data todbot.com/blog/bionicarduino

In-class Exercise 3: Serial Communication Modify your program from in-class exercise 2-part 2 to control the intensity of the LED attached to pin 9 based on keyboard input. Use the Serial.parseInt() method to read numeric keyboard input as an integer. An input of 9 should produce full intensity and an input of 0 should turn the LED off.
