Product Description

Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple i/o board and a user friendly development environment that implements the Processing/Wiring language.

Arduino can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP,PD).

Duemilanove is the enhanced release of Diecimila version. It adds to the previous new features (autoreset function, extended power connector, built in led, USB overcurrent protection) the automatic power selection.

Board comes fully assembled and tested with the new processor ATMega328 pre-loaded with bootloader.

I've used a couple other microcontrollers (pic, picAXE, and messed with a few others) and this is by far my favorite. It is programmed over USB, so it is very easy to set up. There is software available for windows, OS X, and linux. It supports hardware serial communication with a UART (don't worry if you don't know what these mean). The programming language is the absolute best microcontroller language out there, a mixture of processing and wiring. Processing is a language based off of and very similar to c++ (when I started with arduino, the only experience I had with the language was previous casual use of c++). Wiring makes it very easy to use, with low to high level features, which means that a beginner can easily do simple things like blink an LED with just a few lines of code, or do very powerful things like "bit-bang" serial communications at a hardware level or actively modify the program memory. The chip also has built in EEPROM so that you can store data easily after the chip loses power (like if you turn it off). If you are good with computers, you can even make your own firmware and upload that (I won't get in to that). The great thing is, if you need to embed your arduino project you can pick up an ATMega chip and a 16mhz crystal for just a few bucks, and then upload your code to the ATMega over "avrISP" (a program included with the free arduino software) without spending any extra cash. This board is great for experts and beginners alike. It took me, a complete microcontroller novice, about 2 days to become good enough with the language to make usefull programs (like home automation) and now a few months later I can do some really crazy stuff like overlay text to video, or interface with electronic devices like GPS units or phones in ways I never would have been able to before.Read more ›

If you need to automate anything - make something happen based on some sort of sensor - the Arduino can probably do it easily, and cheaper than almost anything else. It's is a terrific platform for electronic and robotic projects, and any project that needs some kind of automation. I'm a high school Physics teacher, and my seniors put together some incredible projects for class with only two weeks or so of programming and circuit-building instruction: light-sensing robots, model elevators with call-buttons, vending machines, a motorized car-wash, even a Pong game. In my after-school club, sophomores and juniors have also taken a real interest in it, though they need a bit more direction. I don't think it's appropriate to call this a toy, because typically you'd have to be high-school age or older to work out the programming - it's more properly a hobbyist's tool, and a lot more adults than kids work with it. Any hobbyist with a bit of an interest in programming should definitely check out the Arduino.

The Arduino is a wonderful, inexpensive device that has numerous inputs and outputs. In the old days we had to burn a chip, put it into a circuit, and then figure out why it didn't work. The arduino was designed to solve that problem. Simply plug it into USB, download the free software from Arduin.cc, and you're up and running. Very simple to program and learn about electronics. Features and onboard programmable LED, and hundreds of plug in boards called shields that can be plugged into extend its functionality.

My problem is with this vendor, however. $79 is far above the suggested retail value of this board. I'm sure some people will unknowingly pay that, but the retail value of this board is below $35. Look around, you can find it much cheaper. Overcharging like this is criminal.

The seller is actually selling a Funduino, a Duemilanove clone. Although this might be fine for some people, I needed exactly what I was attempting to buy (a Duemilanove), for a senior design project. If you are changing the serial or firmware on this device in any way, be aware that it might not be right for you. It was a junk buy for me. Will work as a regular Arduino, but not for the serial communication I needed.

This product requires minimal c+ programming and minimal knowledge of electronics, but WOW does it work! I have never been able to interact with sensors and motors from my computer before. There is a lot of support and a hugh user community.

The Arduino can be used either to communicate between a computer, sensors, motors, and other compatable devices, or to act as the brains to automate them.

I am using this as the brains for an automated germination bed. It (allows me to use a sensor to monitor the moisture and automate watering and lighting.

I will be purchasing more products in this line. Amazon calls this a toy. It is fun, but it's a lot more than that!

Arduino 2009 board is very good for learning microcontrollers.
Because everything is ready, available.
Easy to use, connects to PC via USB, uses Java technology efficiently.
Hundreds of projects available FOR FREE, since it is OPEN SOURCE.

Lots of features for the price, and flexible for users of any skill level. Beginners can start off using the default bootloader and Arduino IDE, which has more than sufficient built-in and user-contributed libraries to interface with any device. More advanced users can program the 328p directly using an ISP (like the Dragon), in C or even Assembly, enabling direct manipulation of hardware registers and fuses. The AVR chip is socketed too so that users can pull it out and use on a breadboard if necessary, although keep in mind than a crystal will be necessary due to the default fuse settings. The bootloader can even be updated to the newer Optiboot bootloader for bleeding-edge users (using bit-bang with an additional solderable header), supporting faster I/O during reading or flashing, as well as slightly increased user program storage space.

One flaw with the design of this board, however, is the large USB A jack. Watch out if you plug in a shield on top of the Arduino, because the exposed surface of the jack might cause a short. I'd recommend putting a piece of electrical tape or something similar to prevent that from happening.

Note: The Duemilanove has been superseded by the Uno, so I'd recommend getting that if possible.
