The obvious solution to the DC motor problem is to use a brushless DC (BLDC) motor for quiet long-lasting operation. BLDC motors are commonplace in the quintessential PC fan that are everywhere and inexpensive. Unfortunately, trying to source a simple brushless DC motor by itself without any attachment to something else like fan blades, disk or CD drive turns out to not be as easy as I thought. I even considered the BLDC motors used in quadcopters, but those are designed for very high RPMs and require a separate motor controller that typically expects PWM. Furthermore, I did buy and play around with a quadcopter BLDC motor. It turns out that running a quadcopter BLDC motor at low RPM produces a high pitched whine, which is clearly unacceptable for a display that is not supposed to annoy everyone near it. In the end, I decided to use a 60x60mm PC fan as the motor and designed a base PCB around it. (propeller_posn==10)

Conventional methods of displaying images or massage to public are using LCD display and dot-matrix LED displays. Propeller LED display is a special kind of device that project an image, text or time as if the images are floating in the air. Actually the floating images emerge by synchronizing LED’S blink to form an image at particular time and rate.

(propeller_posn==40) V DC voltage provided to Mother board using 5 V regulator circuit. Mother board will provide the input voltage to Daughter board. 500 mA current supply provided to mother board to get all components to a perfect working condition. Since the phototransistor is only triggered by the IR radiation, an IR LED must be placed nearby. The intensity of the IR radiation determines how much current is generated in the photo transistor. Therefore a large current must flow through the LED to create a higher intensity. Figure 3 shows an IR LED circuit.

For this part, it is important to be careful. First, the negative ends should be soldered (the top bending strands as shown in the picture). When soldering these, make sure it is soldered at least a couple holes away from where the strand is coming out; soldering the hole it comes through can cause mixed connections- which is bad. This code will display RS232 ASCII transmissions from a PC and display a scrolling message board. The following picture shows an example "Hello World!" message, but it does no justice compared to the video below. The Arduino code could be modified to do things like the following: The FSK modulator circuit shown above will function fine with RS232 either in the standard signaling format (-3 to -15V low, +3V to +15V high) or TTL levels (0V low, +3.3V to +5V high). The diode at the base of the transistor clamps the base of the transistor to ground to prevent negative signal voltages from causing damage to the transistor. I used the Schmitt buffer oscillator instead of a 555 timer because I anticipated a possible need to switch the transformer coil at > 500KHz, which is beyond the capabilities of the 555 timer. Also cheaper 555 timers actually tend to be 100KHz versions. This motherboard contains the ATmega32A microcontroller and all other requirements to get it in to working condition. Also this contains a programing port which allows programming the microcontroller using USB programmer. PORTA and some pins of POARTB are connected to LED panel and POARTC is used to connect push buttons. The wire outs for the daughter board were left through 12-pin connector. Figure 6 and Figure 7 shows the PCB layout designs of motherboard and the list of components are found in the Appendix C Next, solder the positive ends (the bottom bending strands). For these, solder the hole that the strand comes out of. (propeller_posn==35) Version 1.1: povLedTimeDisplay1.1.ino - Added pushbutton support to update the time and leading 10 hour digit 0 will be hidden. (propeller_posn==55)) Now insert the resistors and bend its leads the same as you did for LED’s. Cut the extra leads accordingly. Flip the pixelmap for the message board to be readable at the top or bottom (there is a #define constant already in code to select).
