new to arduino and electronics…my work typically involves motiongraphics / 3d / advertising.

  • If I’m using the 595 to control an 8ch 5V relay does it need more power than the one arduino pin can supply (if powered not by USB but a PS)?

  • I’m new to this and can’t figure out why the arduino sketch errors on verify with “SoftwareSerial does not name a type”.

    I did change the < and > but don’t think thats the issue…seems more like a define impSerial or SoftwareSerial command. Again, im just starting to learn coding so forgive my lack of expertise.
