Knobs are a very old and vital form of control, used in radios several hundred years ago and also in modern car interiors. Knob is based on a variable resistance, and the input is a typical analog signal. The resistance varies during rotation, and the input signal varies continuously from 0 to 1023. ↓
Rotary Angle Card helps you to create control panels quickly and easily, and also allows you to interact with other ideas such as twisting a towel. The angular range of the potentiometer is 300 degrees with a linear change in value. Rotary Angle Card converts the analog potentiometer reading to digital using the internal ADC converter and the output can be read via I2C.
NOTE: Screw driver is inside box.
Longan Cards is a unique open source development platform designed by Longan Labs. As a plug and play development platform, Longan Cards allows you to quickly build wide array of prototypes and applications in no time. A full set of Arduino libraries and plenty of example codes are available to play with Longan Cards platform.
↑ Longan Cards system consists of Cards and Boards. There are many gold finger antennas on Card and several gold finger sockets on Board. They are combined together through sockets interpolation, which is intuitive and easy to use. With this unified and flexible interface, you can realize a variety of ideas. Many more Boards with different themes would luanch to help people explore more fun.
↑ Longan Cards modules are classified into many types. Firstly, the main control cards which are the heart of Cards system, run the code and take charge of the exchange of data between modules. Besides Carduino, you can also use MicroBit, Arduino and other development board through connection board. The sensor cards can detect data of surrounding such as temperature and air pressure, etc. The inputs cards allows you to do some operations, such as buttons, knobs, etc. The output cards give feedback in various forms, such as buzzers, motor drives, etc. The communication cards can transmit data in many ways, such as Bluetooth and 4G network. The power cards supply power for electronic projects, including batteries, DC, etc. And other cards, mainly do some auxiliary work, such as expansion, code downloading, etc.
↑ STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and math. STEM education began in the United States in the 1990s. It is an interdisciplinary teaching method that combines STEM content and real life situations, which helps stimulate students’ original curiosity and thirst for knowledge and novelty. Longan Cards contains dozens of modules, involving a wide range of knowledge in the process of use, including electronic circuit, mechanical structurenature, programming, science of nature, daily wisdom, and humanities, etc. It is a powerful tool for STEM education at fields of electronic prototyping, science experimentation and DIY project.
