shiftRegister

Connection to shift register on Arduino hardware

Description

A shiftRegister object represents a connection to a shift register on Arduino® hardware. The 74HC165, 74HC595, and 74HC164 type shift registers are supported. Attach a shift register to the appropriate pins on the Arduino hardware. Create a shiftRegister object using the shiftRegister function. You can read from and write to the shift register in MATLAB® using the object functions. Manipulate peripheral devices attached to the shift register, such as LEDs.

Creation

Syntax

register = shiftRegister(a,'74hc165',dataPin,clockPin,loadPin,clockEnablePin)
register = shiftRegister(a,'74hc595',dataPin,clockPin,latchPin)
register = shiftRegister(a,'74hc595',dataPin,clockPin,latchPin,resetPin)
register = shiftRegister(a,'74hc164',dataPin,clockPin)
register = shiftRegister(a,'74hc164',dataPin,clockPin,resetPin)

Description

example

register = shiftRegister(a,'74hc165',dataPin,clockPin,loadPin,clockEnablePin) creates a connection to the 74hc165 shift register connected to your Arduino board using the Arduino object a, dataPin to input or output data, clockPin to signal read or write, loadPin to load parallel input data, and clockEnablePin to enable or disable clock.

example

register = shiftRegister(a,'74hc595',dataPin,clockPin,latchPin) creates a connection to the 74hc595 shift register using the latchPin to latch input data.

example

register = shiftRegister(a,'74hc595',dataPin,clockPin,latchPin,resetPin) enables reset of the outputs of 74hc595 shift register.

example

register = shiftRegister(a,'74hc164',dataPin,clockPin) creates a connection to the 74hc164 shift register.

example
