Class Resource Page – has long lists of local and mailorder places to buy things. Remember to ask here and on the blog to coordinate group orders, you can pay for overnight and split the cost several ways.


Charliplexing – driving a lot of LEDs with only a few pins. You don’t have to understand why it works, but it’s easy to set up and there are plenty of examples using Arduino.

LED drivers – simple chips that can be used to turn on and off a number of switches

LED multiplexers – another way to turn lots of LEDs on and off. I find these the easiest to understand and work with.
