Arduino: Testing a Thermistor

Winter is upon us! And I thought to myself, its cold, but I do not know exactly just how cold it is. So I went online and found a

Tools for Thermistor test

Tools used for Thermistor Sketch

sketch (on the Arduino website) which experiments with a thermistor.

A thermistor  is a electronic component that registers a change in resistance in relation to the change in temperature. So the sketch requires:

.

  1. Arduino
  2. 10k resistor
  3. 10k Thermistor
  4. breadboard
  5. Jumper connectors. Read more…

Serial Communication: Turn On and Off Arduino LED

Wrote a script for the Arduino to listen for a byte of data and depending on that value turn the LED on the Arduino Board On and Off. Read more…

C# App to send and receive serial data
