Hello everyone. Welcome to the Blog. I hope you are having a wonderful day.
If you have any experience in Embedded Systems or have done any research for a project in Embedded Sytems, then it is impossible for you to at least not have come across the name Arduino. Today it boasts one of the largest community of both amateur hobbyists and professional engineers that contribute constantly to this ever-growing platform.
Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronics projects. Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board (often referred to as a microcontroller) and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, used to write and upload computer code to the physical board.
The Arduino platform has become quite popular with people just starting out with electronics, and for good reason. Unlike most previous programmable circuit boards, the Arduino does not need a separate piece of hardware (called a programmer) in order to load new code onto the board – you can simply use a USB cable. Additionally, the Arduino IDE uses a simplified version of C++, making it easier to learn to program. Finally, Arduino provides a standard form factor that breaks out the functions of the micro-controller into a more accessible package.
Therefore in this series, we are going to discuss various concepts of the board, both hardware and software and learn to build our own projects. I would like you now to go through the video below where I discuss in details the difference between the Arduino board and the AVR series of microcontrollers that it runs on it. I also discuss the various boards present today in the market and which one to buy:
You should download the latest version of the Arduino IDE as we will need it in our future posts. You can also buy the board you want from our store:
