Week 13

Hall Sensor + LED

Bus Networking

The assignment for this week is to get two microcontrollers to talk to each other. The two boards I am going to use are my LED/button board from the electronics design week, and the hall sensor board that Niel designed. What I want to do is simple: Take an input from the hall sensor, and when it is above a certain value on the hall sensor, it will set another pin high. This pin will correspond with the input pin for the LED and when this is high, the LED will then turn on. This relates to final project because I am using a magnet to basically turn something on. While I do this using only one microcontroller in my final project, for this week, I will be using to attinies.I completed this my using ribbon headers to connect the two boards, effectively making a serial bus connection.
