Forgive me, but I am still learning basic electronics. My question is how do I use the LED and button on the BreadBoard Module?
I think that I know how to do it from the software side. I am looking for info on how to physically wire up the button and LED(s)
Assuming you’re using this with a gadgeteer mainboard.
As a suggestion on wiring you could start with two schematics, the one for the breadboard (see the resources tab in the product catalog https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/454) and then look at the schematic for the GHI’s button module (resource tab, https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/274) then you can wire your breadboard socket to completely implement your own button module (it’s a place to start). Button Gadgeteer Sockets are X or Y.
I apologize we don’t have any good documentation for this module yet.
Yes it is this one https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/454
For a slightly different explanation of my suggestion and code to go with it, see the Developers’ Guide http://www.ghielectronics.com/docs/194/breadboard-x1-module
Thanks Jeff, that set me in the right direction.
@ scardinale -
We ALL start somewhere!

Some is very basic and is a good starting place. Lots of info there…
