I was interested in getting some more information about the projects on the projects page ( ). Are the details/code for the Traffic light controller, or Hardware random number generator or any of the others available somewhere?

Hi waspinator,

The code for the traffic light controller can be found in the Code folder you download. The code for the random number generator was written long ago for a different MCU, so that code isn't available anymore.

Both of these projects are relatively simple, and I encourage you to try code something for it on your own as it is a great learning experience. The traffic light controller is merely 3 LEDs and a while loop with some delays in it that controls which LEDs are on at any particular time. The random number generator uses the temperature sensor, and uses the difference in the readings to generate random numbers. Hope that gets you going in the right direction with these projects. Feel free to let us know on these forums if you get stuck, there are plenty of folks glad to help.
