Cables and breadboards for Arduino experiments

I’ve been experimenting with Arduino Uno and Nano boards recently, along with various sensors, servomotors and other I/O boards. Here are some photos of cables and breadboards available from DX.com that I’ve found useful.

My first (clone) Arduino Nano 3.0

I recently decided to start playing with Arduino embedded computers. On May 9th 2012 I purchased an Arduino Compatible “Nano V3.0 AVR” from DX.com (DealExtreme). It arrived June 4th 2012. Here are my initial thoughts.

An Arduino Uno talking to a TP-Link WR1043ND

Inspired by blog posts by two other people (Arduino and OpenWRT and Arduino + WR703N) I decided to experiment with having my own Arduino Uno R3 talk via the USB port to a TP-Link WR1043ND wireless Access Point running OpenWRT. ┬áSo far I have the Uno R3 visible as /dev/ttyACM0 inside the OpenWRT-powered WR1043ND. The […]

A TM1638-based LED display with pushbuttons for Arduino I/O

I recently decided to start playing with Arduino embedded computers. On May 9th 2012 I purchased an I/O board from DX.com containing eight 7-segment LED displays, 8 individual LEDs and 8 pushbutton inputs. It arrived May 30th 2012. These are my initial notes and an experiment.
