Converting Analogue to Digital (Analogue Read Serial) - Arduino Basics

In this Arduino basics we try to understand the code implementation procedure wherein an external analogue signal is fed to the Arduino analogue input and translated or converted into a correspondingly proportionate digital readout. Here we employ a variable resistance in the form of a pot as the analogue signal source.

Week Day Programmable Timer Circuit

The post explains a couple of interesting timer circuits customized as per individual requirements. The first one is a kind of week/day programmable timer circuit for actuating a motor for a predetermined time only during certain selected days of the week, while the second timer circuit is for alerting a lecturer regarding the finish of the allotted time of his/her class period. The ideas were requested by Mr. Stevan and Mr Ilman respectively.
