One of the stumbling blocks with new technology for me is simply understanding the context of a device like an Arduino. There are thousands of different types of computer boards and chips, why use this one? Is an Arduino the board or the chip? (Actually the Arduino is a brand with various types of boards, for example the Uno that has an ATMega chip.) The book has a chapter with photos of the various members of the Arduino family of boards, including the main one, the Uno, and what are the particular strengths of each board. Although I wanted to start building right away, this background information was extremely helpful in making a decision about with which board to start. I wouldn't have thought to ask for this information, but it was well worth reading.
I want to emphasize that the photos and history is only one chapter in the book, about 7% of the book. Mostly the book is filled with very interesting projects. This is the only book I have read on Arduino boards. I did buy an Arduino Uno on Amazon, and I am already doing interesting things.
The author covers useful topics for enhancing the usability of the Arduino and its clones with just the right amount of detail. For me, he answered most of the questions I've had about the Arduino, but in one authoritative book instead of having to research innumerable answers of questionable authority on the internet. The amount of code he uses to illustrate a topic is sufficient so that you can see how to adapt it to your use easily without getting lost in the weeds. The topics he covers should appeal to a wide range of Arduino users. He covers using hardware and software interrupts and timers, reading and writing directly to hardware registers (with a huge performance increase) and how to improve memory usage efficiency. He also covers interfacing the Arduino to all sorts of hardware using common electronic interface standards such as I2C and SPI. There's also information about how to write software libraries, and how to write your programs directly to the microcontroller without the overhead of the Arduino bootloader. Buy the book. You won't be sorry.
I highly recommend it.
This book is mostly for Arduino UNO and a bit (very little) of DUE.
I'm looking forward to check later other books from this autor, and If somebody have a good book about how to deal with DUE please recommend it to me.
Thank you very much!
