1. What is arduino?

1.1. Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone making interactive projects.

2. Use of arduino

2.1. The Arduino Software (IDE) allows you to write programs and upload them to your board.

3. Background

3.1. It was in the year 2005 that the first ever Arduino board was born in the classrooms of the Interactive Design Institute in Ivrea, Italy. Well, if you are not very familiar with the term, an Arduino is an Open Source microcontroller based development board that has opened the doors of electronics to a number of designers and creative engineers. It was in the Interactive Design Institute that a hardware thesis was contributed for a wiring design by a Colombian student named Hernando Barragan. The title of the thesis was “Arduino–La rivoluzione dell’open hardware” (“Arduino – The Revolution of Open Hardware”). Yes, it sounded a little different from the usual thesis but none would have imagined that it would carve a niche in the field of electronics.

4. Type of boards

4.1. The list of Arduino boards includes the following such as Arduino Uno (R3) LilyPad Arduino Red Board Arduino Mega (R3) Arduino Leonardo

5. Arduino programming language

5.1. the Arduino language is merely a set of C/C++ functions that can be called from your code.
