Programming with Simon

Favorited Favorite 3

You had such a great time learning to solder your Simon that now you want to take that leap and learn how to program Arduinos.


Luckily the Simon uses the same microcontrollers as Arduinos so you can learn how to add an analog sensors to the Simon and then reprogram it with a FTDI cable. Learn the four basic skills of microcontroller programming: Analog, Digital, Input and Output.

Concepts that will be covered include:

  • Software setup
  • Input/ Output
  • Digital / Analog
  • Serial Communication
  • Internal pull-up resistors
