TinyDuino Processors & TinyShields / Dual Motor Tiny Shield with LEDs
« on: November 15, 2020, 01:19:38 PM »
This is probably crazy talk but is there any reason I couldn't use a Dual Motor Tiny Shield to drive a batch of LEDs?  Specifically, I have 4 LEDs (350 ma - 3.4 V) connected in parallel with a 10-ohm resistor per LED.  Thus,  the total current draw is 1400 ma.  I'm using a 6V battery as the voltage source.  It occurs to me that this would allow me to use PWM to control the brightness of the LEDs.

Crazy?  and Thanks

The link you sent me was quite helpful and I'm hoping you can point me in the right direction a bit further.  The link you provided showed me how to power the LEDs from the Arduino, but what I really need to do is power the LEDs from a separate 12 V power source but control them from the Arduino. Can you point me at something to give me a hit as to how to go about this?

That was very helpful. Thank you.  The wirelings seem like a great idea but my project is for the outdoors.  I don't see a good way to weatherize the RGB LED Wireling.

TinyDuino Processors & TinyShields / Tri-Colored LEDs
« on: November 04, 2020, 06:30:42 PM »
I'm trying to figure out how to hook up some Tri-Colored LEDs to a TinyDuino with a PROTO TERMINAL BLOCKS TINYSHIELD.  The LEDs I'm looking at have 4 wires and the following specs.
DC 2V-2.2V(R) 3V-3.2V (G/B) Volt 20mA, Polarity (2 V) : Cathode "-" (Longer Leg) | Anode "+" (Shorter Leg)

So If I read this right, The red requires a different V than the G/B.  I'd like to wire up 4 of these LEDs

I'm certainly no EE so any help you can give on how to hook this up would be appreciated.  And I probably need some hints as to how to write the code too.

Or if you have a better way to approach this, I'm not stuck on these LEDs :)

Thanks so much for your kind attention.

Thanks for your help.  I'll give it a go.

TinyDuino Processors & TinyShields / Motor x4

I'm starting a new project and I have a Motor X4 Tiny Shield that I purchased several years ago.  I  understand that it's obsolete, but is there any reason I shouldn't use it as opposed to buying a new Dual Motor shield? BTW  I only need 2 motors.

TinyDuino Processors & TinyShields / Unknown USB Device
« on: November 27, 2015, 12:56:00 PM »
Everything was working fine and then it wasn't.  I can no longer connect to my TinyDuino.  The Device Manager says "Unknown USB Device ( Device Descriptor Request Failed)".
I have tried:
    Reloading the FTDrivers.
    Changing USB Cables.
    Connecting with and without the TinyDuino attached to the USB adapter
    Searching the TinyCircuits forums and reading lots of other places.

Could I have damaged the USB adapter some how?

Thanks for your time.
