Annikken Aurora Shield
( Works with iOS / Android )

What is Annikken Aurora?
The Aurora Shield comes bundled with our QuickStart Bundle. The QuickStart Bundle comes preloaded with a game called Test Your Reaction Time.
- 3 Green LEDs (left-most 3)
- 3 Yellow LEDs (middle 3)
- 3 Red LEDs (right-most 3)
- 2 RGB 5mm LEDs
- 1 Buzzy Buzzer
- 1 light dependent resistor (LDR)
- Requires an Arduino board (not included)
- Operating voltage 5V (supplied from Arduino board)

Features:
The Aurora shield has a total of 9 single color LEDs

Order from left to right:
pin 1 - GREEN
pin 2 - GREEN
pin 4 - GREEN
pin 7 - YELLOW
pin A1 - YELLOW
pin A2 - YELLOW
pin A3 - RED
pin A4 - RED
pin A5 - RED

To control the LEDs, remember to set pins to OUTPUT.

pinMode(1, OUTPUT);
digitalWrite(1, HIGH);
digitalWrite(1, LOW);

Three RGB (red-green-blue) LEDs are connected to Arduino's
pwm capable pins:

(Left RGB)
pin 3 - RED
pin 5 - GREEN
pin 6 - BLUE

(Right RGB)
pin 10 - RED
pin 11 - GREEN
pin 13 - BLUE

Use analogWrite() function to output different levels of red, green
and blue, 0 to 255.

pinMode(10, OUTPUT);
analogWrite(10, 200);

The buzzer is connect to pin 12 of Arduino and LDR is
connected to pin A0 of Arduino.

The code for the buzzer is slightly more complicated.

targetPin = 12;
void buzz(int targetPin, long frequency, long length) {
long delayValue = 1000000/frequency/2;
long numCycles = frequency * length/ 1000;
for (long i=0; i < numCycles; i++){
digitalWrite(targetPin, HIGH);
delayMicroseconds(delayValue);
digitalWrite(targetPin, LOW);
delayMicroseconds(delayValue);
}
}

LDR will output a analog reading depending on light intensity.
Thus to read the LDR, set pin A0 to INPUT.


pinMode(A0, INPUT);
reading = analogRead(A0);

Technical Specifications:
Dimensions: 6.8cm (L) x 5.3cm (B) x 1.9cm (H)

Weight: 23 grams

Annikken Andee iOS
Annikken Andee  for U - AIO
Annikken Andee for Android - AIO

Annikken LED Array Shield
( Works with iOS /  Android )

What is Annikken Andee LED Array Shield?
The Demo Shield has two 8x8 led matrices, each driven by a 74HC595 chip and TPIC6B595DW chip. The 74HC595 is connected to the anodes and TPIC6B595DW to the cathodes of an led matrix. The second led matrix is connected in the same manner

- Requires an Arduino board (not included)
- Operating voltage 5V (supplied from Arduino board or two AAA batteries)

 Description :
The two 74HC595 chip is cascaded together and controlled using 3 arduino pins. CLK is connected to pin 2, DATA is connected to pin 3 and LATCH is connected to pin 4.

The two TPIC6B595DW chips are also connected cascaded together and controlled using 5 arduino pins. CLK to pin A0, DATA to pin A1 and LATCH to pin A2. Brightness or on/off can be controlled by two arduino pins. Pin 5 is connected to enable pin of TPIC6B595DW chip, which is connected to the left led matrix, and pin 6 is connected to the right. Therefore user can turn on or off the either of the led matrix by enable the corresponding pin. Enable pins are active low. So write a LOW to turn on the leds and HIGH to turn them off. Optionally, brightness can be controlled using PWM function.

The leds are not all on at the same time. Each row is being turn on and off in sequence. This is done fast enough so the human eye is able to perceive it as though the entire led array is on at the same time.

For example: 
Turn on all leds of row one, you will need to shift an integer data of 0b1111111111111111 through the cascaded 74HC595 chips (pins 2, 3, 4). Then shift an integer data of 0b1000000010000000 through the cascaded TPIC6B595DW chips (pins A0, A1, A2). Similarly for the second row, shift out your data through 74HC595 first, then shift an integer data of 0b0100000001000000 through TPIC6B595DW, this corresponds to the second row. Perform this for all eight rows repeated to see the graphic appear on the leds. Note for the last row, data shifted into TPIC6B595DW will be 0b0000000100000001. An interrupt routine using timer1 is being used so the refresh can be faster. Please take a look at the demo programs for an example implementation of the description in this paragraph.

It is possible to control the leds with other pins, should you prefer not to use Arduino pins 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, A0, A1 and A2. The pins that are connected to the shift registers (74HC595 and TPIC6B595DW chips) are connected to Arduino pins via 0 ohm resistors as shown. If you do not wish to use that particular Arduino pin, you can remove the resistor and reconnect it to another pin.
