Arduino UNO R3 Development Board

• Start your electronics and coding projects with the user friendly, open source Arduino Uno R3
• Use with Arduino shields to enhance your project
• Can be powered using a USB-B or external DC power supplies
• With 14 Digital I/O Pins easily control many components from RGB LEDs to Servos, screens and more
• Using Arduino has never been easier, with thousands of tips, tricks and guides readily available online.

Reasons to pick the Arduino Uno R3
The Arduino Uno R3 is one of the most commonly used Open-Source Arduino boards. Start any electronics or coding projects readily available online in the huge Makers community, or design a project yourself. The Arduino Uno R3 grants a lot of flexibility, giving you a great amount of I/O pins to work with, a quick reset button, and machine screw holes to mount the board however you please. This board also uses the ATmega328 Microcontroller, giving you have enough power and memory to store and run lot of complex code.

The best bit about the Arduino Uno R3 is that you don’t need to solder at all, using header jumper pins you can easily, and quickly, connect and disconnect: shields, breakouts, components, or even expand into a standalone breadboard.

Connections and Expansion
This board has 14 Digital I/O pins allowing you to individually control a large amount of components. I/O pins can each to control a limb for a walking talking robot, control hundreds of RGB LEDs, or build your own keypad controlled electronic door lock, and so much more, it will be difficult to push this board to its limits.

The Arduino Uno R3 also has 6 Analogue pins which are perfect for analogue sensors. You can use analogue sensors to make your very own smoke detector, tell if a plant has enough moisture, to detecting if something has triggered a pressure mat!

What will you make?
With the ever expanding range of tutorial guides available, you can start by telling a single LED to flash, or to tell a thousand LEDs to draw you a picture. Using a coding languages called C/C++, these skills easily translate to most general software languages, so with this you’ll be learning a lot more than electronics. Arduino shields come in many shapes and sizes, from providing solder-able break-out boards, a 1.8" TFT screen with micro SD slot and joystick, to a servo and motor control board.

Another great range of accessories are called Breakouts, tiny shields that link together just as easy usually providing more specific uses.
Shields and Breakouts allow you to more easily manage a lot of components in any project, you can view our range of shields and breakouts by clicking here.

Ease of Use
Arduino is fantastic for all ages, whether you have previous experience or not, from fun to functional. Tutorials will tell you exactly what you will need, even what pins to connect your components into, giving you a step by step, start to finish.

Using the Arduino IDE Software, it will allow you to very easily update your Arduino board with the code you’ve prepared, making the transfer seamless; it will even let you know whether your code makes sense and will work before you even upload it.

Start by;
Making an LED Blink,
Design your own Mood Light,
Make a Boat that can explore vast bodies of water,
Or even use your Phone to control your Arduino.
