Why choose the Arduino Mini 05?
The Arduino Mini 05 is designed to be very small, having removed all non-essential components from the board. Measuring just 30mm x 18mm, the Arduino Mini has the smallest size of any Arduino. The Arduino Mini 05 is an excellent choice for embedding into your projects.
The Arduino Mini 05 is not compatible with Arduino shields, however it has been designed to be breadboard compatible. You can plug your Arduino Mini into a breadboard to connect external components.

What is Arduino?
Arduino is an inexpensive tool for developing interactive objects that can detect various inputs and sensors to control a variety of lights, motors, or other physical outputs. It’s an open-source physical platform based on a simple microcontroller board – with which you can write software which controls the board and elements that are attached.

How do I program an Arduino?
To program the Arduino Mini you will need either a USB serial adapter, another USB or RS232 to TTL serial adapter (Order Code: N74DE) or another Arduino board.
Arduino boards are programmed using either the Arduino IDE or Arduino Studio software. The programming tools for Arduino are available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
The Arduino IDE is the standard software to write and upload code to your Arduino. This is the tool recommended for beginner to intermediate users. Download it here: Click here for Arduino IDE
Arduino Studio is a tool which allows you to program your Arduino board. The Arduino Studio software has all the functionality of the Arduino IDE and additional functionality which makes it suitable for more advanced users. Arduino Studio can also be used in the cloud allowing you to program your Arduino from your computers web browser or smart phone. Download it here: Click here for Arduino Studio
The programming language for the Arduino is designed to be easy to learn without limiting people from creating advanced projects. Arduino.org has numerous tutorials and projects to get you started with your Arduino board.
