Most of the electronic projects need to use many electronic components to assemble it up and it finally turning into a mess in the very end.
Like the old saying, “Simple is the best!” Due to this old adage, you’ll have the chance to develop a handy yet portable Pin Visualizer. Well, this project is considering as a simple project, as it requires only two main parts here, which are Arduino and TouchShield Stealth!
The Arduino that you’re going to use in this project is an AVR microcontroller board based on the ATmega168. It has 14 digital I/O pins, 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header and a reset button.
Meanwhile, the TouchShield would be a 128×128 pixel OLED screen on a PCB shield. It is an Arduino-ready and can be used to bring advanced I/O capabilities to the Arduino platform. The new version of Stealth Edition has an all-blacked out board, where it looks very slick on top of the dark blue Arduino.
Furthermore, the TouchShield will only use pins 2 & 3, which means it will leave 6 analog pins and 12 digital pins free for other purposes. All of the signals are followed in real-time simultaneously.
After you’ve done with it, it’s time to use it to check your programming work and debug your code easily!
