Everything about Arduino
What is Arduino?
Arduino is the worldwide leader when it comes to open-source hardware & software. The company offers a range of software tools, hardware platforms and documentation. Arduino is the ideal tool for getting to know technology, interactive art, IoT and more. Unlike other programming languages, Arduino is easy to learn. Thanks to the many available manuals, you will be introduced as a beginner. Everyone starts with the "Blink" project. Here you let an LED light flash. But before you know it, you will be able to convert information from sensors into data or actions. Take a driving independently robot. You place a sensor that detects objects, as soon as there is an object, the Arduino knows what to do with it. Depending on the code, the robot will turn around or drive around the object. This is just one of the many possibilities with Arduino. There are numerous projects online that you can copy. Or become an inventor and come up with your own project!
Do you want to make an Arduino project, but have no idea how? We have some nice example projects ready. These projects explain step by step what to do. You can get started right away! Sample projects are available for beginners and advanced.

Most popular Arduino products
The Arduino range continues to expand. Every board is different. This is great since you can choose the most suitable board for your project. The Arduino Uno is by far the most popular board. Almost everyone who starts with Arduino will start with the Uno. After a while, you may want to create much larger projects. You will then probably upgrade to an Arduino Mega. Do you want to make a very small project where there is no room for a large board? Then a Nano is a much better choice. Are you planning to use the Arduino boards for business? Then the MKR series may be better suited. If you are going to start with Arduino, we recommend a starter kit. A starter kit contains everything you need to start. Starter kits usually come with an Arduino Uno.
Arduino for beginners
Do you want to learn to work with Arduino? Then the starter guide is perfect for you!
In this guide, we introduce you to the different types of hardware. Such as Jumper wires, LED lights, motors, sensors and much more.
But also the software (Arduino IDE) is discussed. You learn to code step by step. Before you know it, you are already making super cool projects!
Take a quick look at the starter guide!
The Arduino platform is very extensive. There are a lot of functions. You must know about their existence before you can use it.

Original Arduino vs Clone
A new Nano family!
The new Nano is a small, powerful and affordable solution for everyday projects. The new Boards are compatible with the classic Arduino Boards. All new Nano Boards have low energy consumption. They are also equipped with powerful processors. Arduino has managed to maintain quality and reliability. The family consists of 4 different boards.
- Arduino Nano Every. perfect for everyday projects.
- Arduino Nano 33 IoT. small, safe & connected to the internet.
- Arduino Nano 33 BLE. small, low energy consumption & connectable via Bluetooth.
- Arduino Nano BLE Sense. small, low energy consumption, can be connected via Bluetooth & integrated with a wide range of sensors.
