Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring - basically a C syntax language) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software on running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP).

The arduino IDE (integrated development environment) runs on Windows, MAC-OS and Linux. The target code is conviniently downloaded to the target board via USB.

The boards can be built by handor purchased preassembled; the software can be downloaded for free. The hardware reference designs (CAD files) areavailable under an open-source license, you are free to adapt them to your needs.

Electrokit has been an Arduino distributor all the way since early 2007, and we are one of the largest in Europe.

  Arduino Mega ADK rev 3
Microcontroller ATmega2560 Operating Voltage 5V Input Voltage (recommended) 7-12V Input Voltage (limits) 5.5-16V Digital I/O Pins 54 (of which 14 provide PWM output) Analog Input Pins 16 DC Current per I/O Pin 40 mA DC Current for 3.3V Pin 50 mA Flash Memory 256 KB of which 8 KB used by bootloader SRAM 8 KB EEPROM 4 KB Clock Speed 16 MHz Revision 3 of the board has the following new features: 1.0 pinout: added SDA and SCL pins that are near to the AREF pin and two other new pins placed near to the RESET pin, the IOREF that allow the shields to adapt to the voltage provided from the board. In future, shields will be compatible both with the board that use the AVR, which operate with 5V and with the Arduino Due that operate with 3.3V. The second one is a not connected pin, that is reserved for future purposes. Stronger RESET circuit.

  LoL Shield 3mm red (assembled)
INTRODUCTION: This is Lot-Of-Leds multiplexing LEDs shield with 126 LEDs made in 14x9 matrix. This shield originally was developed by Jimmie P Rodgers and you can find his original project and Arduino libraries here When we saw this shield first time we fall in love with it, it was so simple and nice to play with, especially when we saw how Super-Awesome-Sylvia assembed it :) What we didn't like on the original design was that it uses only 3mm LEDs, so we made another one with 5 mm and 10 mm LEDs and one complete LOL with embedded Arduino called LOL-TEXTILE which is 30x20 cm and can't be attached to your clothing back. FEATURES: 126 individually addressable LEDs Arduino libraries, pong, tetris, invaders games Bright LEDs 5000 mcd available in 4 LED sizes: 3mm, 5mm, 10mm, and SMT 3528 available in 4 colors: RED, GREEN, BLUE, WHITE available in KIT form or completely ASSEMBLED and tested!

  Electric Imp Shield (discontinued)
If you aren't familiar with the Electric Imp, it essentially provides an easy, integrated way to connect almost any hardware device both to other devices and to internet services. It's more than just a WiFi card, or even a WiFi module with processing built in - it's an integrated platform that deals with the drudgery of connectivity, allowing you to concentrate on the application instead of the mechanics. Of course, if you're developing for it you'll need a way to get in there and poke around. The Electric Imp Shield allows you to connect your Arduino project to the internet through your home WiFi network. This way, your Arduino can take advantage of the Imp Cloud service and connect to HTTP APIs. The Shield connects one of the imp's UARTs (Imp pins 5 and 7) to either the Arduino hardware UART or a software serial on pins 8 and 9. It defaults to the software serial, but there are jumpers on the bottom side to set it to the hardware serial. A couple imp pins (8 & 9) are also connected to LEDs. They can be disconnected via jumpers on the bottom, if you'd like. Because the Electric Imp can draw up to 400mA on the 3.3V line, this shield has its own voltage regulator which is fed from the 5V Arduino line. Most Arduino compatible boards should be able to handle this amount of draw but beware that some clones that use less robust VREGs could see trouble

  Arduino Micro (ATMEGA32U4)
The Arduino Micro is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega32u4. It has 20 digital input/output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs and 12 as analog inputs), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a micro USB connection, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a micro USB cable to get started. It has a form factor that enables it to be easily placed on a breadboard. The Micro is similar to the Arduino Leonardo in that the ATmega32u4 has built-in USB communication, eliminating the need for a secondary processor. This allows the Micro to appear to a connected computer as a mouse and keyboard, in addition to a virtual (CDC) serial / COM port. It also has other implications for the behavior of the board; these are detailed on the getting started page. Summary Microcontroller ATmega32u4 Operating Voltage 5V Input Voltage (recommended) 7-12V Input Voltage (limits) 6-20V Digital I/O Pins 20 PWM Channels 7 Analog Input Channels 12 DC Current per I/O Pin 40 mA DC Current for 3.3V Pin 50 mA Flash Memory 32 KB (ATmega32u4) of which 4 KB used by bootloader SRAM 2.5 KB (ATmega32u4) EEPROM 1 KB (ATmega32u4) Clock Speed 16 MHz

  Simblee - DIP
The Simblee 7-pin DIP board is a finger-tip sized, Arduino compatible, wireless enabled microcontroller. What makes the Simblee great is the fact that it not only runs Arduino code and can do everything an Arduino can but it also allows you to define a User Interface for your smartphone in the Arduino code. When used in conjunction with the RFduino USB shield, simply plug the RFduino into a USB port of any computer and use the Arduino IDE to load your Arduino sketch, which automatically begins running on the Simblee board. Then you can detach the RFduino USB shield and plug the Simblee directly into your project. Its that easy! The Simblee is a Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy BLE RF Module with Built-In ARM Cortex-M0 for rapid development and prototyping projects. The Simble operates at 3.3V and only uses 10mA in RX mode ( Note: The Simblee board requires USB Shield for programming. Note: The custom user interface requires a smartphone app. The app is currently available for iOS and should be available for Android in early 2016. Operating Voltage: 3V (Max 3.6V, Low 1.8V) Transmit/Recieve Current: 8-16mA ( ARM Cortex M0 processor (running at 16MHz) 128KB Flash 24KB RAM Build iPhone and Android apps without Xcode or the Android SDK Built in AES encryption engine -93dBm receiver sensitivity -55dBm to +4dBm TX power 7 GPIO pins (6 with 10-bit Analog input) PWM, UART, SPI, I2C capabilites on most GPIO pins UART Programming over USB or Over the Air Programming CE, ETSI, IC, TELEC, and FCC approved
