The iHacklab Blinker

by J.B. Wylzan

Project 2:  The Blinking Lights
This project will blink all 9 leds at the same time.

*Instead of using 1 pin, this project will use 9 pins.These pins will turn on and off repeatedly. This project will also teach you how to program. It will also provide you some challenges like:
1. Turn on only all even leds.
2. Turn on only all odd leds.
3. Turn on and off all even and all odd leds.
4. Turn all leds on and off 
5. Turn all leds on and off with different delays

9 LEDs
9 resistors, 200 ohms
connecting wires
Arduino UNO

Code # 2:  
  iHackLab Blinking Lights
  powered by Arduino
  sketched by J.B. Wylzan
  modified by Lawsinium

  Turns all LEDs On and Off repeatedly.
  This example code is public domain.

 // Setup pins 4 to 12
void setup() 
  pinMode(4, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(5, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(6, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(7, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(8, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(9, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(10, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(11, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(12, OUTPUT);

// Turn all Leds On and Off repeatedly
void loop() 
  digitalWrite(4, HIGH);   // turn the LED on 
  digitalWrite(5, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
  digitalWrite(6, HIGH);   // turn the LED on 
  digitalWrite(7, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
  digitalWrite(8, HIGH);   // turn the LED on 
  digitalWrite(9, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
  digitalWrite(10, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
  digitalWrite(11, HIGH);   // turn the LED on 
  digitalWrite(12, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
  digitalWrite(4, LOW);    // turn the LED off 
  digitalWrite(5, LOW);    // turn the LED off 
  digitalWrite(6, LOW);    // turn the LED off
  digitalWrite(7, LOW);    // turn the LED off  
  digitalWrite(8, LOW);    // turn the LED off
  digitalWrite(9, LOW);    // turn the LED off  
  digitalWrite(10, LOW);    // turn the LED off
  digitalWrite(11, LOW);    // turn the LED off  
  digitalWrite(12, LOW);    // turn the LED off

Actual Layout:

1. Use the same prototype as shown above
2. Run the Arduino Interface
3. Select File > New
4. Copy Code #2 above
5. Paste Code #2
6. Click File > Save
7. Click Verify
8. Click Upload
9. Al 9 leds will turn On and Off repeatedly
