Arduino Compatible UNO R3 Microcontroller
Vetco stocks a 100% compatible version the very popular Arduino series of Microcontrollers. The Arduino is the easist way to get started in the world of microcontrollers and it has an extremely active hobbiest community. The programming software is free and there are many, many toutorials and code samples available for FREE online.
The Arduino Uno that this board is based on is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.
This built to the same specifications as latest revision of the Uno, the R3, uses the more capable Atmega 16U2 USB interface chip, which has twice as much flash memory as the Atmega 8U2 used in previous Uno revisions.
This item is just an Arduino UNO compatible Microcontroller - It is not the official Arduino branded board, and is supported by Vetco Electronics directly for warranty purposes. No additional shields, power supplies, cables, software or other accessories are included. Vetco sells an ever increasing selection of Arduino shields and Arduino sensors. These can come with any one of these three USB port types: USB B, USB Micro, USB Mini. If you need a specific type for the project you are building, please note it in the comments section when ordering and we will see if we have the port type you require in stock. This and the MEGA use an alternate USB to serial chip which needs a different driver than is supplied with the Arduino IDE. You can download the MS Windows version below. (Tested with Win XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10). We will post a Linux and Mac version at a later time.
