ScrapLabs Challenger : Modelling IC555 response using Arduino

Untitled Sketch 2_bb

So here is the video of a circuit’s response I made on IC555. I have used a potentiometer (variable resistance) with a standard IC555 blinking circuit. Now, I want you to model the same thing using Arduino Uno, Potentiometer (variable resistance) and an LED. The circuit is shared below. You can submit your codes at […]

ScrapLabs Challenger: Blinking LED on prime intervals

All of us are aware of the LED blinking code from arduino examples section. We have also done some experimentation with the way LED blinking can be manipulated. I have a challenger for you based on similar arrangements. The goal is to make the LED blink in a manner that it is ON for seconds […]

Making your own Arduino Board


The most important part of Arduino Uno R3 (the board that you are using) is ATMega328 chip. It is the micro-controller of the board. A micro-controller can be thought of as a mini-computer. It has a processor, RAM and execution capabilities. So if we get ATMega328 can we build an arduino board by ourselves? Lets […]

Arduino Factory Tour


The Arduino Uno R3 board that you were given in class looked like this: A considerable amount of effort and a lot of intermediate steps are involved in designing and production of this board. If you wish to take a tour of the Arduino factory and see how they are produced then you can watch […]

Modelling Heartbeats Using Arduino


Heartbeats can be seen on an electrocardiograph in a form something like this: A healthy heart beats about 70 – 100 times per minute depending upon a person’s age, physical condition, lifestyle and habits. Ideally under perfect conditions a heart should beat 72 times per minute. This means that one heart beat takes about 0.8 […]

Today we are going to learn a simple trick by which we can understand how electricity interacts with magnets. Things required Copper wire (uncoated) : 20 meters Duracell AA battery : 1 Neodymium magnets : 4 Aluminium foil : 1 sheet Basic tools like cello tape, scissors and glue. The video below is self explanatory […]
