Arduino is an open-source electronics platform, which builds its own IDE and Embedded board on which different microcontrollers are embedded according to the requirement of the user. It is widely used by beginners and hobbyist as it’s very easy and user-friendly to the user. Arduino comes in various models, which differs in processing power, storage, pin outlets and many more features.
Arduino comes in various models: These are the four models widely used.
- Arduino UNO– it works on ATmega328p microcontroller, it’s one of the most popular versions of Arduino. Users can experiment with the board without worrying keeping in mind some of the safety rules listed at the end.
- Arduino NANO- It is based on ATmega328p based microcontroller it just works like Arduino UNO but in a very concise manner. It can be mounted on a breadboard and is having all the features required for a beginner.
- Arduino PRO MINI- Arduino Pro mini is powered by Atmega328p.This Arduino board was developed for applications and installations where space is primary and projects are made as permanent set ups. Available in 3.3V and 5V versions.
- Arduino MEGA- Arduino mega is the mother of all Arduino boars it is equipped with all the pinouts possible to fit on the board. It’s the most powerful among the other four. It is powered by Atmega 2560.
