The iHacklab Binary Counter

by J.B. Wylzan


Project 7:  Binary Counter:
This project teaches you how to count in Binary. 
Four LEDs - yellow, green, red, blue - are used as a binary counter. 
The binary and decimal clock below will be your final project as we progress.




In the table below, the four circles in each row represent the four Leds. A black circle means the led is On. The white circle means the led is Off. Study the lights in the prototype and compare them with the table. In few minutes, you will be able to count in binary. 



Hardware:
4 LEDs
4 resistors, 200 ohms
connecting wires
breadboard
computer cable
Arduino UNO
