In this blog, I’ll get you started into Arduino; what is it? How to program it? and so on…
so, Let’s get started by this question:
What is Arduino?
- Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for anyone making interactive projects.
- Arduino senses the environment by receiving inputs from many sensors, and affects its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators.
- You can tell your Arduino what to do by writing code in the Arduino programming language and using the Arduino development environment.
The differences are in the number of I/O pins, type of micro-controller, speed of processor.
- ATMega328 (16MHz – 32KB)
- 14 I/O Pins (5v Max. – 40 mA)
- 6 PWM
- Power Up (USB – 6-20v Battery) (Preferred 7~12v)
- Simple, clear programming environment (IDE)
- Open Source
Now, you can download the IDE from HERE, and get started to coding in next blogs.
