We’re so very excited to say that chipKIT products will be exhibited at the Microchip booth at Maker Faire Bay Area on May 17th & 18th 2014 (Expo Hall, Booth #303).

A couple of our friends from Digilent will also be at the Microchip booth showing off something really neat with LEDs (take a sneak peek at the image below). You’ll just have to stop by to see it in action!

chipKIT Digital Light Meter

Embedded Lab has put together a useful tutorial to build a digital light meter using the chipKIT Uno32 board, the chipKIT Basic I/O Shield and the BH1750 digital light sensor. Light meters are used to measure the intensity of illumination in a given area. They are widely used in schools, warehouses, factories, hospitals, office buildings, museums, art-galleries, parking garages, stadiums, and many more, to measure and maintain proper lighting levels.

For all the details, please visit the post on Embedded Lab.
