Arduino

Arduino is already known as one of the best interactive programming printed circuit boards (PCB) developer and provider that becomes more and more popular. Arduino is both the name of the company and the brand given to most of its products. Arduino devices are small computers (PCBs) that are able to read many types of inputs, e.g. light on a sensor, a finger on a button, sending a message, issuing a sound. Then, the input signal is able to be turned into an output signal. This, in turn, may result in setting blinds, turning on the TV set and other activities depending on the board and the way it is used. Arduino boards are also called microcontrollers due to the fact that you can command yourself what a given board should do. In order to do so, however, you will need to know the basics of Arduino programming language and its software.

Nowadays Arduino is one of the most straightforward platforms for learning programming (and many other things!) and at the same time one of the most comprehensive ones. The latter feature results from the many dedicated overlays (Arduino Shields) and the extensive development environment (Arduino IDE). Check our offer below!

What exactly is Arduino?

The open-source electronic platforms gives you a lot of possibilities. Arduino is based on easy-to-use hardware and embedded systems, and therefore using Arduino is recommended for both younger and more experienced users, who are seeking an attractive way to learn and develop their skills. The selected simple Arduino boards are also great for children as they allow them to understand how do electronics work.

Arduino offers great opportunities, but it is not only for IT students. Boards are used by high school and college students around the world. Arduino's numerous overlays (Arduino Shields) enable communication with software as well as data visualization and controlling the dynamic objects in real time.

No other programming environment that would enable rapid writing and running programs has yet been invented. Arduino allows you to test communication with a new integrated circuits without any technical difficulties.

Arduino Shields – endless possibilities

Arduino has become a world standard in programming electronics. Many other microcontrollers manufacturers produce modules that are fully compatible with the Arduino PCBs and Shields. Great example might be a LaunchPad boards (for Texas Instruments processors) or STM32 Nucleo (for 32-bit ST Microelectronics microcontrollers).

The way you are using Arduino is up to you. With many Arduino Shields to choose from there are a lot of possibilities. Modules responsible for control motors, network devices (via relays) and LED RGB lighting, as well as numerous sound overlays – once you have bought Arduino the adventure will never ends! If you want to expand your project, just buy an additional module at a low price.

This is one of the most important advantages of Arduino – there are so many modules available that what exactly are going to construct depends entirely on you! For instance, if you have basic Arduino PCB and buy Arduino Motor Shield, some little engines and tyres, with a little knowledge of programming you will be able to construct a self-driving robot that avoid obstacles!

Accessories for Arduino

Arduino PCBs and additional modules are not everything. Arduino also uses universal prototype accessories: contact plates, connection cables and many other accessories. In addition, you can buy small components, e.g. resistors, LEDs and sensors, that will enrich your project. Arduino has also created an impressively wide range of enclosures, both the simplest – providing basic mechanical protection of the board – and the more advanced ones dedicated for industrial applications (DIN rails boxes and cases).

At the very beginning of the adventure with Arduino, you can also decide on an easier step. By choosing any of the proposed starter kits, you can be sure that you will receive all the elements you need to build your first projects and have fun with electronics.
