To complete this tutorial you will need…
- An Arduino
- A proto shield kit
- 28-pin ZIF (zero-insertion force) socket
- A piezo
- Some wire
- Blank ATmega328P (that you will program)
First up, place the ZIF socket on the proto shield like so:
Solder the following wires to the ZIF socket
- Pin 1 to digital 10 - Blue (this wire connects underneath to the ZIF socket so make sure to 'jumper it so it solders directly to the ZIF pin, see the photos below)
- Pin 7 to 5V - Red
- Pin 8 to Ground - Black
- Pin 9 to digital 9 - Gray
- Pin 17 to digital 11 - Brown
- Pin 18 to digital 12 - Orange
- Pin 19 to digital 13 - Yellow
- Pin 20 to +5V - Red
- Pin 22 to Ground - Black
Next add S1switch which you will press to start the programming process. You can just solder a wire (yellow) from the breakout near S1 to Analog 1.
We also soldered in a Piezo beeper, to give us feedback. One side is soldered into Analog 3 the other side is soldered to the ground rail right next to the analog breakouts.
Next, download the codebase from github. Make a sketch floader called adaLoader in your Arduino sketch collection and copy the pde and helper files in. Restart the IDE and open up that sketch, compile it and upload it to your Arduino.
