Example text

Previous revisions of the Uno should work without any changes, but if you are using an older or more specialized board, be sure to follow instructions that are specific to it. This section gives you a brief rundown of other available boards. Official Arduino boards Although Arduino is open source, it is also a trademarked brand, so to guarantee the quality and consistency of its products, new boards must be properly approved by the Arduino team before they are officially recognized and can bear the name Arduino.

By using and editing the example sketches in this book, you can quickly build up your understanding of how they work and will be writing your own in no time. Each sketch is followed with a line-by-line explanation of how it works to ensure that no stone is left unturned. The Arduino board, shown in Figure 1-3, was made to be more robust and forgiving than Wiring or other earlier microcontrollers. It was not uncommon for students and professions, especially those from a design or arts background, to break their microcontroller within minutes of using it, simply by getting the wires the wrong way around.

If you learned about electronics at school, you were most likely taught how to build circuits using specific components. These circuits are based solely on the chemical properties of the components and need to be calculated in detail to make sure that the correct amount of current is going to the correct components. These are the kind of circuits you find as kits at Radio Shack (or Maplin, in the United Kingdom) that do a specific job, such as an egg timer or a security buzzer that goes off when you open a cookie jar.
