Arduino - A Open Source Platform

Arduino - Introduction

An Arduino is an open source platform or in simple way it is an microcontroller development board.
Arduino is a microcontroller board based development board which can be used in developing and building electronics projects. Arduino consists of both a hardware (microcontroller) and a piece of software or IDE(Integrated Development Environment) that runs on computer, used to write and upload computer code the development board.

The Arduino platform has become more popular with people just starting out with electronics. The Arduino does not need a extra hardware programmer in order to load new code on to the development - you can easily use a USB-B type cable. The Arduino IDE uses a C++ programming language and hardware based on microcontrollers from Atmel Corporation like 8, 16 or 32 bit AVR architecture based microcontrollers.
