Blink 2 LED flasher using Arduino

Today we will make a 2 LED flasher using Arduino (UNO)

Usual we use a transistors circuit to make two LED flasher. This we will study programing C code on Arduino. It is easy to learn. Step to step by Chayapol. Lets go!

Define pictograms of LED blinking  working

Then, we open the Arduino IDE software. Next,write the code below


void setup() {
  pinMode(13, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(12, OUTPUT);
void loop() {
  digitalWrite(13, HIGH);
  digitalWrite(12, LOW);
  digitalWrite(13, LOW);
  digitalWrite(12, HIGH);
Programing on Arduino-IDE

And then, when you’re done. Press Ctrl+R to Compile. For check it.

Parts you will need:
2X 470 ohm resistor
jumper wires

2 LED flasher Arduino circuit connection

Connect the parts as Figure 5
Then, apply USB port to computers
Finally, Click to Sketch>Upload code to the arduino board.
We will see 2 LEDs alternately blink as Figure 6.

And video below

-First we set time delay is 1 S
-Second we set time delay is 0.1 S (LED flasher faster)
-Third we set time delay is 3 S (LED flasher slowly)

Related circuit: 1.5V LED flasher circuit using transistor, output one LED to 5 LEDs with only one AAA battery.

we can use Arduino to make a 2 LED flasher but we have to adapt the We can use Arduino to make two flsher lights, LED work light, which is controlled by the internal code Arduino. Good luck
