Wake up clock tutorial with Intel Galileo #Arduino #Galileo
The folks over at the Arduino blog posted about this great alarm clock project from the Intel community. Check out the full tutorial here.
What time is it? It’s wake up time! This week, we’ll explore the Intel® Galileo Gen 2 board’s real time clock (RTC).
The RTC, once set up, will run even if the board is turned off so long as it gets power from the attached battery. While this is a relatively simple function of the board, it has its obvious uses – scheduling, timing, or calculating intervals.
We will be making a “wake up clock” which will turn on and illuminate the room slowly, simulating a morning sunrise. Hopefully, it will make waking up on Mondays a bit easier.
Here is a list of items you’ll need to make this project:
Intel® Galileo Gen 2
Intel® Galileo Gen 2 power supply
LED power supply
1 High power white LED(3v 700mA)
1 1000 μF Capacitor
1 2.1 mm DC jack-to-screw terminal adaptor
1 10k potentiometer
1 1.8Ohm 2w resistor
1 LM317t voltage regulator
2 10kOhm resistor
1 2n7000 transistor
1 Coin battery holder
1 8 mm magnet
Stiff wire (that is attracted to magnets)
Hot glue sticks
4 mm MDF components – lasercut according to drawing
Plexiglas components – lasercut according to drawin
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
