Detecting Light Levels With the mySTEM for NI myDAQ

A couple of weeks ago, I did a basic breadboard LED project using a mySTEM connected to a myDAQ. We created a simple circuit. This week, we will create a light detector using the mySTEM Project Board for the NI myDAQ and a couple of sensors/circuits. You’ll have a laser emitter that you’ll use to hit a photoresistor, which will … Read More
