Output Devices that we measured the power consumption of:
We connected DC motor to the output devices board and ran the motor after
programming the board through arduino IDE. First we measured current in series
and then we measured current in series and voltage across parallel connection
as shown below.
Power consumption of a DC motor: The measured voltage (V) for the DC motor was 10.25 Volts
and the value of current required (I) was varying. However, the one,
which was most consistent was 22.4 mA. So the power consumption of a DC toy motor= P= V x I
= 10.25 x 0.0224 A = 0.2296 Watts.
In second case, we connected RGB LED module to the output devices board and blinked each LED
(Red, Green and Blue) separately after
programming the board through arduino IDE. Also measured the current by attaching the
resistor of 80K in series with the help of
Megger make multimeter as shown below.
Power consumption of RGB LED: The operating voltage (V) for RGB LED was 5 Volts and the
value of current (I) was different for Red, Green and Blue LED. For Red LED, it was 0.02 mA,
for Green and Blue LED, it was 0.04 mA. Following are our calculations of power consumption
of RGB LED.
In electronic systems, output devices transfer
energy from processed electrical energy to another
form of energy, usually light, sound, or movement
(kinetic). Digital or analog output devices are
Actuators are electronic devices that perform an "Output" function.
To get started
I am making my final project output board this week.
Then when it didn't happen on Attiny 44, I used attiny1614 IC.
What is the attiny1614.
The ATtiny1614 is a 14-pin microcontroller with an 8-bit AVR® processor with
a hardware multiplier that runs at up to 20 MHz and has 16 KB Flash, 2 KB SRAM,
and 128B of EEPROM.
A N-Channel MOSFET is a type of MOSFET in which the
channel of the MOSFET is composed of a majority of
electrons as current carriers. When the MOSFET is
activated and is on, the majority of the current
flowing are electrons moving through the channel.
This 2 Pin Wire to Board connector are used widely for connecting Wires to
Boards, It can be for Power Supply or connecting any other perpheral like
Motor to the Board. The distance between two mounting pins is in multiple
of standard 5mm so that this connector can be mounted easily on general
A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source that emits light when
current flows through it. Electrons in the semiconductor recombine with electron holes,
releasing energy in the form of photons. The color of the light (corresponding to the energy
of the photons)
is determined by the energy required for electrons to cross the band gap of the
White light is obtained by using multiple semiconductors or a layer of light-emitting
phosphor on the semiconductor device.
