Arduino is an open-source computer hardware that designs and manufactures single-board microcontrollers and microcontroller kits.The boards are equipped with sets of digital and analog input/output (I/O) pins.
|CPU||Atmel AVR (8-bit),
ARM Cortex-M0+ (32-bit),
ARM Cortex-M3 (32-bit),
Intel Quark (x86) (32-bit)
Various types of Arduino’s available are show in slideshow.
ARDUINO SOFTWARE INSTALLATION:
Step 1: Download the Arduino open source software from here.
Step 2: Install the software.
Step 3: As the last step of installation it prompts you a dialog box whether to install driver or not. Click Install.
Step 4: After installing open the Arduino software.
Step 5: Statements in Setup() is executed only once. Statements in Loop() is executed infinitely until powered off.
Step 6: Select the Board that is to be programmed.
Step 7: Connect the Arduino board with Laptop via USB and select the port in the Arduino Software.
Step 8: Open the Blink Program from File–>Examples–>Basics–>Blink. Blink program is to blink the inbuilt LED of 13 th pin with a sec delay.
Step 9: Upload the program to the Board with the Upload button. If a new program is created it can be compiled.
Step 10: LED in the 13 Th pin in Arduino Uno blinks with a sec delay.
