Introduction Amongst the stuff available from Farnell/Newark I noticed an interesting Arduino kit. I wanted to share my impression of it, in case it is useful for others in the same predicament – what to get for a beginner interested in engineering with a focus on electronics and computing. (I didn’t want to open the insides too much since it is intended as a gift. Also, apologies for the slightly blurry pics – I was in a rush sadly).   This kit is off-the-radar because ...
Written in Java, Arduino software can be downloaded for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X for free. Arduino makes things easier by releasing the environment with full Arduino support for writing code and uploading the code into the board memory. Software available is compatible with Linux, Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. There are many software versions released in time with new and new features aiming to create a friendly environment to develop from simple to advanced Arduino applications. ...

The logistical issues associated with the Los Angeles Unified School District's (LAUSD) introduction of iPads must not discourage us from making tablet computers part of education.  The inevitable mistakes are small compared to the potential benefits.    Some of the criticism of the introduction of tablets in Los Angeles focuses on students using them for unapproved activities.  The curriculum of approved activities is much more important than what students do when they're ...
Arduino has a pretty good footing as the household name for beginners to get into electronics.  Especially when it comes to that critical first task of blinking an LED, no other manufacturer makes it easier.  Thanks to the power of today's microcontrollers, there is enough functionality in an Arduino to take a beginner and turn him or her into a pretty dangerous designer.   But what happens when the newly-accomplished engineer wants to expand beyond the hardware provided by the ...
Have you put together an Arduino-based circuit and looking to nicely (but easily) document it?  Or perhaps you're looking to create an Arduino Shield with EAGLE and want to start with the correct dimensions of the headers.  Element14 has come to the rescue with the Arduino library of EAGLE parts for exactly that.  There are two types of components in this library: the standard version with a PCB footprint showing the key connections and the 'EXT version which has no PCB footprint. ...

Arduino beginner

I'm a complete beginner when it comes to electronics and programming, so I decided to help educate myself I would buy an Arduino starter kit. This kit arrived yesterday and came with an Arduino Project book which is jam packed with information and tutorials (great for learning and inspiration!!).   So far I have read the first few pages of the book and followed along with the first few examples. It's a lot of fun but I'm concerned about the mathematical aspect of electronics and programmin ...
