Arduino Duemilanove

Arduino is a microcontroller family that can easily be programmed with a processing-like IDE[[wikipedia:Integrated development environment]]. Its main features are:

  • stand-alone operation
  • programmable in a C-like language
  • huge user-base, so lots of info/code/libraries available
  • inputs (eg. for sensors or switches)
  • outputs (eg. for LEDs, motors or to control other hardware)
  • serial communication (RS232), via USB
  • various shields available (eg. Bluetooth, XBee, WiFi, Network)
