Which Arduino is best to buy?
That absolutely depends on what you want to do with the Arduino. If you are a beginner, the Arduino Uno is a good choice. If you want to make an extensive project, you might prefer an Arduino Mega. If you have a small project, one of the Arduino Nano's is probably better suited. If you are going to use Arduino professionally, take a look at the MKR boards or the Portenta H7.
What is Arduino?
Arduino is an Italian company that develops Open-source single-board computers. These computers are based on a simple microcontroller board and a user-friendly programming environment. Each board has a number of inputs and outputs. The inputs can be used to read various sensors. The outputs can be used to control lights, small motors, relays and other actuators.
Are Arduino clones just as good?
We don't think so. Arduino clones are often produced in a cheaper way. The quality and lifespan of a clone can therefore be low. Of course there are also good clones available. These are usually not much cheaper than an original Arduino. By buying an official Arduino board you also help with new developments of Arduino.
Can Arduino run python?
Yes it is possible to program the Arduino with Python. However, this is not the standard programming language. The Arduino is programmed in a C ++ dialect by default.
The Arduino Portenta H7 works with Python.
How does an Arduino work?
In short, an Arduino works as follows: The Arduino board has various inputs and outputs. You can connect components, sensors & actuators to these inputs and outputs. By means of a code you let the Arduino know what to do with the data from a sensor. For example, you can show the value of a distance sensor on a display.
A sensor is not necessarily required. You can also give the Arduino a fixed program what to execute. For example, flashing an LED light.
Are Arduino and Raspberry Pi compatible?
Arduino and Raspberry Pi are similar, but they can do completely different things. An Arduino is the best choice for making a robot. A Raspberry Pi is the best choice for making a camera. If you now want to build a robot with a camera, you can let the Arduino and Raspberry Pi work together. This is only suitable for an advanced user of both platforms.
Which Arduino starter kit is best?
This differs per person. Depending on what you want to do with your Arduino, you can choose a starter kit.
One starter kit contains a number of components to get you started. The other contains quite components, sensors and motors with which you can make many electronics projects. Think carefully about what you want to achieve with the starter kit and choose the best kit that way!
