Looking for somebody with experience building circuits to step in to a project involving lots of different interactive elements ASAP. Of course, the most complicated one ran in to some problems and we need somebody to do some troubleshooting and/or rebuilding of a circuit borad. Work has already been done, but we need more resources.
Did I mention that it’s getting installed in one of the most visible retailers in Times Square on a looming deadline? No pressure 🙂
Respond via email with resume and/or rundown of some cool electronics stuff you’ve made happen.
What happens is when a momentary switch is flipped, a linear actuator retracts, an LED panel turns on, the actuator extends, and after a delay the LED panel fades out. It’s all coded and we had a circuit using a MOSFET to drive and dim the panel via PWM on the arduino. The board got shorted out and now we may need to replace resistors or the MOSFETS or the whole thing. Arduino controls the whole routine. If this sounds like no sweat to you, let’s talk. If you already have the circuit mapped out in your head by now, that’s exactly what we’re looking for.
We’re way motivated to get someone in to make this happen. Will pay well for the right person. Building is 24 hours access, and the sooner you can get here, the better, and for multiple reasons.
Potential for involvement with more straightforward elements of the install on Monday, just some hookup work.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
