TinkerKit Website Offline

Future support for the TinkerKit electronics range is in doubt, after their website (tinkerkit.com) went offline unexpectedly in mid-2014. The issue has been discussed online, in sources including the and . Alternative TinkerKit Resources This sudden disappearance...

plcLib (Arduino): Working with Analogue Signals

Previous: Shifting and Rotating Binary Data Contents Next: Comparing Analogue Values The inAnalog() command reads an analogue input. This may then be used to control a continuously variable output value, such as the brightness of an LED, the speed of a motor, or the...

Combinational Logic Circuits

In a combinational logic circuit, the output depends only on the current state or 'combination' of inputs. The behaviour of this type of system may be defined using a truth table, or a Boolean expression. Combinational logic systems range in complexity from single...

Magnetic Flux

Magnetic flux (symbol Φ – the Greek letter Phi) is the magnetic field produced by a source of magnetism such as a permanent magnet or electromagnet. Magnetic flux is measured in webers (Wb). A commonly used graphical convention when drawing magnetic fields...

Bar Graph Display

An electronic bar graph display uses a series of LEDs to indicate an analogue property, such as a sound level or electrical charge value. In some applications, it may be appropriate to use different colour LEDs to indicate high and low values. As with individual LEDs,...
