LED w/ Button
OK, this is a really simple project. You do not require any prior programming nor electronic skills. You can use either an Arduino or a Raspberry Pi, both should work.
STEP 1 - Connect the cables from the card:
- Connect a cable from the 3V3 pin to J2
- Connect a cable from the ground pin ( which one doesn't matter ) to J9
STEP 2 - Set up a button and a LED:
- Connect a 4-pinned button to I2
The legs of the button should now be in I2, I4, F2 and F4
- Connect a LED to J4
The legs of the LED should now be in J4 and J5. Remember that the long leg (anode, +-legl) should face towards the + current. In this case that would mean that the long leg should go in J4 ( I was not able to rotate the LED in the editor )
STEP 3 - Connect a resistor to the board:
For this simple project it doesn't matter what resistor you use as long as the resistance is between 1k-2k Ohms.
- Connect one leg of the resistor to I5, and the other one to I9
You have now completed a simple project, and when you press the button the LED should light up.
