Arduin of Italy: the name of an ancient Italian king. Circa 1100 AD.

#1100A.D.- 2004A.D.
No microcontrollers named after King Arduin for about 900 years. It took a while for this to catch on.

#2005- 2007
Arduino: the name of the bar where the Arduino team cooked up their original plan for the Arduino microcontroller, circa summer 2005. Boarduino: ladyada's standalone Arduino-compatible, circa early 2007. Freeduino: our contribution, born September 2007. Uduino: an early one from back in 2007.

ADVANTAGES OF ARDUINO IDE :1. Inexpensive - Arduino boards are relatively inexpensive compared to other microcontroller
platforms. The least expensive version of the Arduino module can be assembled by hand, and even 2. the pre-assembled.

Cross-platform - The Arduino software runs on Windows, Macintosh OSX, and Linux systems. Most microcontroller systems are limited to Windows.


3. Simple, clear programming environment - The Arduino programming environment is easyto-use for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users to take advantage of as well.

4. Open source and extensible software- The Arduino software is published as open source tools, available for extension by experienced programmers. The language can be expanded through C++ libraries, and people wanting to understand the technical details can make the leap from Arduino to the AVR C programming language on which it's based.

ARDUINO Compatible MCU Boards:1. Arduino Uno - This is the latest revision of the basic Arduino USB board. It connects to the computer with a standard USB cable and contains everything else you need to program and use the board. 2. Mega2560 - The version of the Mega released with the Uno, this version features the Atmega2560, which has twice the memory, and uses the ATMega 8U2 for USB-to-serial communication. 3. Sanguino This is latest version of ARDUINO series. This board can be connected to computer through USB cable.

FEATURES OF ARDUINO IDE :The Arduino IDE is a cross-platform application written in java which is derived from IDE made for the processing programming language and the Wiring project. It is designed to introduce programming to artists and other newcomers and other newcomers unfamiliar with software development. It includes a code editor with features such as syntax, highlighting, brace matching, and automatic indentation, and is also capable of compiling and uploading programs to the board with a single click. There is typically no need to edit makefiles or run programs on the command line. The Arduino IDE comes with a C/C++ library called Wiring, which makes many common input/output operations much easier.

Basic Commands :Using this two commands, we can compile and execute program. 1. Verify In this command, the compiling of the

written program happens. 2. Upload This command is used for uploading the

program in our arduino board, so that we can execute the program uploaded.

STRUCTURE:The basic structure of the Arduino programming language is fairly simple and runs in at least two parts. void setup() { statements; } void loop() { statements; }

Where setup() is the preparation, loop() is the execution. The setup function should follow the declaration of any variables at very beginning of the program. It is the first function to run in the program, is run only once, and is used to set pinMode initialize serial communication. The loop function follows next and includes the code to be executed continuously reading inputs, triggering outputs, etc.

setup() :The setup() function is called once when your program starts. Use it to initialize pin modes, or begin serial. It must be included in a program even if there are no statements to run. void setup() { pinMode(pin, OUTPUT); } } // sets the 'pin' as output

loop() :After calling the setup() function, the loop() function does precisely what its name suggests, and loops consecutively, allowing the program to change, respond, and control the Arduino board. void loop() { digitalWrite(pin, HIGH); delay(1000); digitalWrite(pin, LOW); delay(1000); } // // // turns 'pin' on // pauses for one second turns 'pin' off pauses for one second

FUNCTIONS:A function is a block of code that has a name and a block of statements are executed when function is called. Custom functions can written to perform repetitive tasks and reduce clutter in a program. Functions are declared by first declaring the function type.

Variables :A variable is a way of naming and storing a numerical value for later use the program. As their namesake suggests, variables are numbers that can continually changed as opposed to constants whose value never changes. Variable needs to declared and optionally assigned to value needing to stored. The following code declares a variable called inputVariable and then assigns it the value obtained on analog input pin 2:

int inputVariable = 0; / /

declares a variable and assigns value

digitalWrite(pin, value) :Outputs either logic level HIGH or LOW at a specified digital pin. The pin can be specified as either a variable or constant (0-13).

digitalWrite(pin, HIGH);

digitalRead(pin) :Reads value from a specified digital pin with the result either HIGH or LOW. The pin can be specified as either a variable or constant (0-13).




value of


analogWrite(pin, value) :Writes a pseudo-analog value using hardware enabled pulse width modulation (PWM) to an output pin marked PWM. The value can be specified as a variable or constant with a value from 0-255. analogWrite(pin,value); //writes value to analog pin

A value of 0 generates a steady 0 volts output at the specified pin; a value of 255 generates a steady 5 volts output at the specified pin. For values in between 0 and 255, the pin rapidly alternates between 0 and 5 volts the higher the value, the more often the pin is HIGH (5 volts).

analogRead(pin) :Reads the value from a specified analog pin with a 10-bit resolution. This function only works on the analog in pins (0-5). The resulting integer values range from 0 to 1023.

value = analogRead(pin); // sets value equal to pin

pinMode(pin, mode) :Used in void setup() to configure a specified pin to behave either as an INPUT or an OUTPUT. //sets pin to output //sets pin to input

pinMode(pin,OUTPUT); pinMode(pin,INPUT); digitalRead(pin);

CONCLUSIONS :Arduino is an open source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It can sense information by receiving the value from various sensors and can control motors, actuators and many more. The programming on this microcontroller board is done by Arduino IDE software i.e. Arduino programming language. Since the Arduino IDE is a cross-platform application which is programmed in java and it includes a code editor with features such as syntax highlighting, brace matching and automatic indentation and is also capable of compiling and uploading programs to the board with a single click, so this Arduino IDE software is better than any other AVR systems.
