I have been busying myself recently with some experiments into programming the Arduino prototyping platform.
I have already created some hardware, a Maxim DS1307 Real Time Clock shield and a Serially Interfaced, 8 digit 7 Segment Display based on a MAX7221 IC. So far I have created test routines to test my hardware but I wanted to really get my teeth into creating some more practical code.
And here it is, A more or less functioning LED clock.
I have included a download of the sketch (Arduino speak for program) that I wrote so that Arduino owners can examine and play with my code, There is a cheesy video blog at the end of the article as well if you want to see the clock in action…
