And now the fun part! Let’s dive into the experiments!

We recommend doing them in order:

  1. Blinking an LED
    • Learn the basics of programming the Omega by turning an LED on and off.
  2. Blinking Multiple LEDs
    • Learn some more programming concepts by controlling multiple LEDs at once.
  3. Fading an LED
    • Create a cool LED fading effect using the pulse width modulation technique.
  4. Reading a Switch
    • Use a physical switch to control an LED through the Omega.
  5. Using a Shift Register
    • Use a shift register chip to control 8 LEDs using only a few GPIOs.
  6. Controlling a Seven-Segment Display
    • Add a seven-segment display to the previous circuit to display numbers.
  7. Reading a 1-Wire Temperature Sensor
    • Use a 1-Wire temperature sensor to read the ambient temperature.
  8. Controlling LCD Screen
    • Use the I2C protocol to control an LCD screen attached to the previous circuit.
