Arduino DC Load

This is a project that I am working on for class a Pasadena City College as well as for AEA Ribbon Mics. The class is an introduction to micro-controllers and is based around the Arduino. For this midterm project I wanted to build a DC load that would ramp up the current draw on the positive and negative voltage rail and be able to read the current draw and read the voltage. For the most part this project is working.

 

Here is a few slides describing more of the scope of the project:

PWM Presentation

 

Here it is in action on the positive voltage rail.

 

Here is the code if you want to check it out:

More to come later on this project!
