Arduino Uno Rev3 in Retail Box - Authentic
Usually ships within 2 - 3 Days
Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple I/O board and a 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).
The open-source IDE can be downloaded for free (currently for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux) from http://www.arduino.cc
The Arduino Uno Rev3 is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.
The Uno differs from all preceding boards in that it does not use the FTDI USB-to-serial driver chip. Instead, it features the Atmega8U2 programmed as a USB-to-serial converter. "Uno" means one in Italian and is named to mark the upcoming release of Arduino 1.0. The Uno and version 1.0 will be the reference versions of Arduno, moving forward. The Uno is the latest in a series of USB Arduino boards, and the reference model for the Arduino platform.
This version of the Arduino Uno Rev 3 comes in a larger sized retail box that is ready to wrap as the perfect gift for the "family geek". Arduino is extremely easy to program. Many programming resources are available for free on the internet. A compatible computer with USB connector is required. Computer cable & power adaptor are not included.
