Uno R3 - Little Bird Guides
Meet the Arduino IDE

Getting familiar with the Arduino IDE is an essential first step. With the Arduino IDE, you can get started with Arduino programming.

In this guide, you will learn how to install the Arduino IDE, choose the right Arduino board type and serial port, before uploading a 'blink' example sketch. The code will then uploaded onto your Arduino board. A Little Bird Uno R3 is used in this guide, though other boards will work as well. If you will be using a different board, keep in mind that you will need to choose a different board type on the IDE.

Doing so will enable you to advance on with further projects that would involve adding your sketches onto the Arduino board.

Use a Push Button with Arduino

Push button switches are inexpensive and versatile components that have many uses. 

In this guide, we will learn how to use a push button switch together with an Arduino, to turn an LED on and off. The circuit we will be building, uses a Little Bird Uno R3, a fully compatible Arduino development board. A mini pushbutton switch, a 5mm LED, jumper wires, and a mini breadboard is also required.

Other uses for push buttons are in custom gamepads, DIY radio buttons, MIDI controllers with push buttons that in conjunction with LEDs would light up when pressed, and many more!

LEDs with Arduino

LEDs (light emitting diodes) can be found nearly everywhere, especially in many Arduino projects. 

In this guide, you will learn how to use an LED with the Little Bird Uno R3 board by connecting them using a mini breadboard, some jumper wires and a resistor. 

Learning to do so will enable you to use LEDs in your own Arduino projects that may require illumination or indication. 

Light Dependent Resistor

Light-dependent resistors, also known as photo-resistors, are sensors that allow the detection of light. They are not only useful but are small and inexpensive. 

In this guide, you will learn to use a light-dependent resistor with the Arduino. We will use a Little Bird Uno R3 board, a mini breadboard, a 10k ohm resistor, some jumper wires, and a light-dependent resistor. You will learn to hook it up to the Arduino board, and measure the relative brightness of the environment.

Some examples of projects that require the use of light-dependent resistors include a noisemaker and a line-following robot.

Temperature Sensor

Temperature-sensing is a vital part of many Arduino projects.

This guide will show you how to use the TMP36 temperature sensor with a 100% compatible Arduino development board, the Little Bird Uno R3 board to read the surrounding temperature.

With temperature detection, you could create a solar-powered temperature sensor, a biofeedback device that uses body temperature data, or even a smart coaster that lets you know when your coffee or tea is safe to drink!

How to Use an RGB LED with Arduino

While RGB LEDs look like conventional LEDs, they are three-in-one, comprising of a red, green and blue LED.

In this guide, we will learn how to control the brightness of each LED and so, change the colour of an RGB LED. We will be using a Little Bird Uno R3 development board, and a Multicolor RGB LED with White Diffused Lens, a mini breadboard and some jumper wires.

After completing this guide, you will be one step ahead with creating your own devices that require illumination or indication, such as an LED cube or an animated pixel art box!

Change a Variable with a Potentiometer

Potentiometers, also known as variable resistors, can be found in many Arduino projects. 

In this guide, you will learn to use a potentiometer to turn values up and down and provide variable resistance. These values are read into the Arduino board as an analog input.

After completing this guide, you will be able to use potentiometers in your projects. Some examples of what you could do with a potentiometer are to control LEDs, MIDI or servos.

Make a Sound with a Piezo Buzzer

Piezo buzzers are simple audio-signalling devices that can generate sounds.

Use an Arduino to Control a Relay

A relay is a device that is activated by a current in one circuit to open or close another circuit. 

In this guide, we will learn to use a relay to turn high power devices on and off. Together with a Little Bird Uno R3 board, the 5V 1-Channel relay board module used in this guide will give you control over power. Please see parts list for a complete list of components required.

After learning to use the 5V 1-Channel relay component, you can use it to turn off lamps, fans, and other appliances up to 250 VAC.

Use an IR Receiver with Arduino

An IR receiver uses infrared communication. Infrared light, unlike visible light, has a slightly longer wavelength and so is undetectable to the human eye. But it is detectable by a TV which listens for IR signals.

In this guide, you will learn how to capture button presses on a remote with the 100% compatible Arduino development board, the Little Bird Uno R3 and an Arduino compatible IR receiver module. Have a try with a few different remote controls you have around the house!

After completing this guide, you will understand the basics involved and can use an IR receiver in your very own Arduino projects!

Use a Tilt Sensor with Arduino

A tilt sensor allows the detection of orientation, and are tiny, inexpensive and low-power components used in plenty of Arduino projects.

In this guide, we will learn to use a ball tilt sensor with the 100% Arduino compatible development board, Little Bird Uno R3, so that when the sensor is tilted, it opens the circuit. When the switch is vertical, the switch is ON.

After completing this guide, you will be able to use tilt sensors in your next projects!

How to Power Your Arduino
