    In the comments below:  Let Us Know What Arduino Project You Are Planning on Doing for Arduino Day 2020!

     

    We'll be sending out a limited number of Nano boards for project proposals that use them!

     

    Arduino is celebrating its 15th Birthday on March 21st, 2020!  We'll be sending out 25 Nano Boards (5 different Flavors) for project proposals that use them!Project14 will celebrate its 3rd Birthday with a NanoRama Celebration that begins the day before Arduino Day!  Help us celebrate by submitting an Arduino Project as a Birthday Present!Winners Announcement will be on Geek Pride Day on May 25th 2020.  It also happens to be the anniversary of the release of the first Star Wars movie.  A New Hope was released on May 25th, 1977!

     

    This year, Arduino Day will be on March 21, 2020.  It will be their 15th birthday and we've decided to celebrate with NanoRama party!  We're kicking things off with Nano Giveaway, where we'll make Arduino Nano's new family of boards available on the community for the first time.  Say happy birthday to Arduino in the comments below, and let us know what Arduino project you plan on doing for Arduino's birthday. If your project idea includes one of the five Arduino Nano boards listed below, we'll send a the board of your choice for projects that use them.  The Nano boards that we are giving away are the Arduino Nano (Classic), Nano Every, Nano 33 IoT, Nano 33 BLE, and Nano BLE Sense.

     

    Beginning on the 21st of March,  submit your Arduino Day project in Arduino ProjectsArduino , your blog, or the NanoRama Birthday Special on  Project14 using the tag NanoRamaCH.  Your project can be a birthday present to celebrate Arduino's 15th birthday,  Project14's 3rd birthday, or both!  The Arduino Nano family is featured throughout Arduino Day and the upcoming NanoRama competition, however, you're also free to submit any Arduino based project, not just a Nano based project, if you'd prefer. The first 20 people to submit an Arduino project for Arduino Day win an Arduino Nano!  We'll also include cool Nano boards along with shopping cart as part of the prizes!  The upcoming NanoRama competition closes on May 14th with a winners announcement on May 25th.

    The Arduino Nano is a small, complete, and breadboard-friendly board based on the ATmega328P (Arduino Nano 3.x). It has more or less the same functionality of the Arduino Duemilanove, but in a different package. It lacks only a DC power jack, and works with a Mini-B USB cable instead of a standard one.

    Perfect for everyday projects, this board is Arduino's 5 V Board in the smallest form factor available: 45x18mm!

     

    The Arduino Nano Every is an evolution of the traditional Arduino Nano, but featuring a lot more powerful processor, the ATMega4809. This will allow you making larger programs than with the Arduino Uno (it has 50% more program memory), and with a lot more variables (the RAM is 200% bigger).

    On-board WiFi and Bluetooth® connectivity using a u-blox module, the NINA-W10, a low power chipset operating in the 2.4GHz range. A cheap and easy point of entry for enabling IoT on existing devices (and creating new ones) or for designing pico-network applications. Can be used for applications such as building a sensor network connected to your router, or a BLE device sending data to a cellphone

     

    Secure communication is ensured through the Microchip® ECC608 crypto chip. A 6 axis IMU, makes this board perfect for simple vibration alarm systems, pedometers, relative positioning of robots, etc.

    Microcontroller: ATMEGA328

    Nano 33 BLE - Giving away 5 for Project Proposals that use them!Nano 33 BLE Sense - Giving away 5 for Project Proposals that use them!

    A Bluetooth 5 board that is perfect for wearables, motion tracking, environment monitoring, and other IoT sensing using its mesh networking support. The Nano 33 BLE (without headers) is Arduino’s 3.3V compatible board in the smallest available form factor: 45x18mm!

     

    The Arduino Nano 33 BLE is an evolution of the traditional Arduino Nano, but featuring a lot more powerful processor, the nRF52840 from Nordic Semiconductors, a 32-bit ARM® Cortex™-M4 CPU running at 64 MHz. This will allow you to make larger programs than with the Arduino Uno (it has 1MB of program memory, 32 times bigger), and with a lot more variables (the RAM is 128 times bigger). The main processor includes other amazing features like Bluetooth® pairing via NFC and ultra low power consumption modes. The Nano 33 BLE comes with a 9 axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) which means that it includes an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer with 3-axis resolution each. This makes the Nano 33 BLE the perfect choice for more advanced robotics experiments, exercise trackers, digital compasses, etc.

     

    If you used Arduino Nano in your projects in the past, the Nano 33 BLE is a pin-equivalent substitute. Your code will still work, but remember, it operates at 3.3V. This means that you need to revise your original design in case it is not 3.3V compatible. Besides that, the main differences to the classic Nano are: a better processor, a micro-USB connector, and a 9 axis IMU.

     

    The communications chipset on the Nano 33 BLE can be both a BLE and Bluetooth® client and host device. Something pretty unique in the world of microcontroller platforms.

    The Nano 33 BLE Sense (without headers) is Arduino’s 3.3V AI enabled board in the smallest available form factor: 45x18mm! The Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense is a completely new board on a well-known form factor. It comes with a series of embedded sensors:

     

    • 9 axis inertial sensor: what makes this board ideal for wearable devices
    • humidity, and temperature sensor: to get highly accurate measurements of the environmental conditions
    • microphone: to capture and analyse sound in real time
    • gesture, proximity, light color and light intensity sensor : estimate the room’s luminosity, but also whether someone is moving close to the board

     

    The Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense is an evolution of the traditional Arduino Nano, but featuring a lot more powerful processor, the nRF52840 from Nordic Semiconductors, a 32-bit ARM® Cortex™-M4 CPU running at 64 MHz. This will allow you to make larger programs than with the Arduino Uno (it has 1MB of program memory, 32 times bigger), and with a lot more variables (the RAM is 128 times bigger). The main processor includes other amazing features like Bluetooth® pairing via NFC and ultra low power consumption modes.

     

    Embedded Artificial Intelligence

     

    The main feature of this board, besides the impressive selection of sensors, is the possibility of running Edge Computing applications (AI) on it using TinyML. You can create your machine learning models using TensorFlow™ Lite and upload them to your board using the Arduino IDE.
