Arduino UNO: A Low-cost and Flexible Programmable Open-source Microcontroller Board
Arduino UNO is an open-source microcontroller board that has been designed for hobbyists, students, and anyone interested in learning about electronics and programming. This board is based on the Arduino Leonardo architecture and has been equipped with a number of features that make it an ideal platform for prototyping and developing electronic projects. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at the Arduino UNO board and discuss some of its key features.
Ideal for hobbyists and students this low-cost and flexible board can be used to control a variety of electronic devices, including relays, LEDs, servos, and motors. The Arduino UNO also has a number of programmable inputs and outputs that can be used to interface with other boards, such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino shields. The board has a microcontroller chip that can be programmed with the Arduino software, which is free to download from their website.
A number of different models are available, ranging from the basic version which has six analog inputs and eight digital outputs to the high-end model with more than twenty options. All versions include an on-board USB port for power supply and programming, as well as a micro SD card slot so you can store your programs locally or connect it to a computer via USB cable.
Pins are numbered sequentially from left to right (starting with zero) and top down (starting with ground). There is no need for an extra power supply as the Arduino UNO can be powered directly by the USB port of your computer or other device through its micro SD card slot. All versions include on-board LEDs, which are useful for indicating the status of your projects.
