Arduino

Arduino is a series of open hardware single board computers. Designed with engineers, makers and hobbyists in mind, these great prototyping PCBs are ideal for creating interactive digital projects, engineering solutions and electronic designs. Arduino's open source philosophy means that users can easily create and share software code, libraries and hardware designs.

Available in a multitude of form factors, the Arduino family features various processors, interface ports and pinouts that can make use of expansion boards called Shields. These optional Shields interface with the Arduino pin-headers, providing a multitude of uses, from reading inputs, interfacing with 3D printers, motor control, GPS, Ethernet and more.

Arduino is programmed via an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is a cross-platform application that runs on PC, MAC OSX and Linux. Its simplicity makes it ideal for newcomers unfamiliar with software development, but it is also a useful tool for Makers and professional design engineers developing applications.
