How to connect the physical parts? | IoT 101 [4 of 9]


>>Welcome back to
the.NET with IoT series. In this video, we’re going
to learn how to make the circuit diagram connections
for our sample blinky. Over here I have the.NET Core
repo open with the blinky sample. If we scroll down in this repo which explains
how we run the sample, it also includes a section that explains what the breadboard
layout looks like. We will be using this diagram as a reference to make our connections. So let’s go grab our
components and get started. So to begin, let’s make
our first connection. The diagram starts with a wire
running from pins 6, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, to a row in our breadboard. Next, we will connect a resistor. So let’s get this plugged in, then we’re going to grab our LED. Put it in here. All right. The next
connection says to go from the LED to a vertical line here, and then from this vertical
line which is ground, we go to the ground
of the Raspberry Pi. So to recap, if you notice
a circuit is usually a circle so we’re going from the
Raspberry Pi to the breadboard, it goes into the resistor
which flows to the LED, the LED then it’s connected
to the ground which connects to the ground
port of the Raspberry Pi, and that completes our connection needed for the LED-blinky sample. So we just learned how quick
and simple it is to make the connections to get started
with our LED-blinky sample. Join us in the next video, we will talk about
the.NET classes that we will use to write
out LED-blinky code.
