Labs: Motors and Transistors

The following labs are about controlling DC motors and other high-current loads with transistor and H-Bridges.

Controlling Stepper Motors

Introduction Stepper motors are useful for when you need to rotate a full 360 degrees, but need to position your motor at a particular angle. What follows is a more detailed introduction to unipolar and bipolar stepper motors and how to control them from a microcontroller.  In order to get the most out of these notes, … Continue reading “Controlling Stepper Motors”

DC Motors: The Basics

These notes are heavily indebted to Gordon McComb’s Robot Builder’s Bonanza, second edition, which includes some excellent chapters on motors and motor use. Introduction Related video: Meet the Motors When trying to move things with microcontrollers, you’re likely to use one of three kinds of motors: DC motors, RC servomotors, and stepper motors. Following is … Continue reading “DC Motors: The Basics”

Syllabus Fall 2021

Introduction All computing is physical. We work with computational systems by taking action with our bodies, on devices. All computing is physical. We work with computational systems by taking action with our bodies, on devices. The construction of computing devices, and their use, consumes raw materials and energy as well. In short, the virtual always … Continue reading “Syllabus Fall 2021”

Syllabus Fall 2020

Introduction Physical Computing is an approach to learning how humans communicate through computers that starts by considering how humans express themselves physically. In this course, we take the human body as a given, and attempt to design computing applications within the limits of its expression. To realize this goal, you’ll learn how a computer converts … Continue reading “Syllabus Fall 2020”
