I love the blinking digit! I feel like you're setting the time on a VCR(*).


Thanks for making and sharing this, Omar!

In Topic: Oz-Solutions Tutorial: RGB LED

I could use some help. We've built a netduino project similar to this one. But it doesn't work. I took this sample code and tried it too, doesn't work.

I grabbed a couple of AA batteries and put them in series to generate 3volts, then touched the contacts to my led to see if it's broken, and it works, but only if I reverse the polarity from what's in the diagram. What am i doing wrong?

I was connecting the negative side of the battery to longest lead (common) of the RGB LED. That won't light it up, but it will if I reverse the connection and put the positive to the common.

Have I done something wrong?

I think you've got a common anode LED. There is nothing you're doing wrong, just put the common lead into the 3V# instead of GND. this will also make it so SetDutyCycle(0) will turn them on, and SetDutyCycle(100) will turn them off. so its reversed.

Oh man, that's pretty cool. I'm thinking that someone could pick this up and build a PC app that would change their colors based on actions/events on the computer.

It's like Alienware on steroids :)

Thanks for sharing this!


Yeah Arron wants to do something like it but much fancier, and I plan on getting some app made to control it. Near future i think...

My thoughts on the matte solder mask con be refined to: awesome! :D I like the fact that it doesn't show fingerprints! It also doesn't get oily from your hands, unless you touch it after eating or dipping your hands in oil :P . It looks very nice and smooth. Essentially, its very shiny, but figuratively.
