This week I’ve been spending a lot of time in the BTU lab, both helping setup streaming of some of our lab activities for ATLAS’ Twitch Creative stream, as well as working on some preliminary wiring of the lights. I’ve managed to get ahold of a couple of these small MOSFET controller boards that another lab member makes, and I’m using them to control the lights via Pulse Width Modulation. Here’s a photo of some of the stuff:
The little purple board is the MOSFET control board, and there’s an Arduino Uno hooked up to it giving it info about which lights to switch on/off. Now to figure out the fading of the lights in the code.
