In this video, Zahraa explains one of the main commands used within Arduino IDE. The pinMode() function is used to configure a specified pin in Arduino to behave either as an input or an output.
- [Narrator] Now let's try to understand some of the…main commands used within Arduino IDE.…You can use each digital interface on the Arduino as either…input or an output but not both at the same time.…Now in order to tell Arduino which mode your sketch uses…for the specific digital or analog interface, we need to use…pinMode function.…In pinMode function we basically configure the specific pin…in our Arduino to behave either as an input or an output.…
This is the way the function is written the pin mode…function requires two parameters. The pin parameter,…determines the pin number to configure. The mode parameter,…determines whether the pin operates as an input…or an output.…There are three values you can use for…the interface mode setting.…Input, in order to set it for a normal input mode.…Input_pullup, in order to set it for an input mode but uses…an internal pull-up resistor.…
I'll talk more about this later in the course.…And finally as an output, in order to set it as an output…mode.…So we add the pin mode in the setup function because the…
