LED Flashlight

Post by JimGodfrey » Wed Sep 24, 2008 5:42 am

Hi.
There was an article earlier this year about LED flashlights. I downloaded the files but don't know what to do with them to view them. bin and hex files. I have read the article on line but there are no schematics to view. Anyone help here? Thans.

I am pretty poor with computers. But I and others can give advice pertaining to LED flashlights if you have any specific things that you are wondering about.

Hi Jim,

If you could post some info like a schematic or other notes or perhaps
a link we could take a look. It's hard to know what you are talking
about otherwise.
LEDs vs Bulbs, LEDs are winning.

Hi Jim,

Those asm, bin, and hex files are files that are used to program a microcontroller. The ASM file is the code in Assembly Language and can be viewed in any text editor such as Notepad.

Viewing the bin and hex files won't help you with anything as they are not really readable anyways (as far as making sense of what's inside).
