Summary

This unit allows students and teachers to simply and effectively utilise microcontrollers to perform fun and exciting tasks. The straightforward control of light and sound output leads logically on to more involved challenges including time delays and counting devices. By using the tried and tested education software, Circuit Wizard, simple flowchart-based operations allow detailed functionality and adaptability. This unit is designed as a starting point for understanding the concept of controlling programmable embedded electronics into design and technology products and prototypes. Circuit Wizard software and Genie circuit boards are required for this unit.
