  • To make the club light functional again
  • To redesign the power supplies for the motors and microchip
  • To understand how the stepper motor controls work to make it turn in either direction
  • To create an analog temperature sensor circuit to run the cooling fan
  • To design and build an analog beat detecting circuit that runs off of a line-level signal (mono)
  • To make the color wheel change to a random color upon sensing a beat
  • To interface the microchip with the various components (stepper motor, lamp PC Relay, cooling fan, and musical input)
