Digital Arduino driven spectronometre using scientific MATLAB orientated interface and protocol. The Arduino.pde is a famous server sketch in the Arduino IO Class, designed by the G. Campa (12 August 2010, version 2.5 [R2010a]), which continuously runs on the ATMEGA328 microcontroller on the latest Ardiuno Uno development board, enabling digital or analog pin writing or reading capabilities. This is similar to the typical analog to digital controllers. This operational program allows the user to use the Arduino together with MATLAB to engineer any creative scientific instrumentation. This led to the idea of creating a very inexpensive digital spectrometer to test the engineered program and the capabilities of MATLAB to perform in such an electronically enhanced environment. This digital web-cam driven spectrometer and the entire device is managed through a universal serial bus (USB). Sensing devices, DC-motor and stepper-motor driving capabilities are tested in this project, as is MATLAB's capability to create a graphical user interface to facilitate timer functions and object creation for the Arduino in general and for web-cam communications in particular.
