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.

  Ardumoto motor driver shield
The new version of this shield allows for either 3.3 or 5v logic, a separate and more robust VIN connection, and the PWM input has moved to pin 3. This is a motor shield for Arduino that will control two DC motors. Based on the L298 H-bridge, the Ardumoto can drive up to 2 amps per channel. The board takes its power from the same Vin line as the Arduino board, includes blue and yellow LEDs to indicate active direction, and all driver lines are diode protected from back EMF. Control for motor attached to OUT1/2 is connected to digital line 12 (direction A) and digital line 3 (PWM A). Control for motor attached to OUT3/4 is connected to digital line 13 (direction B) and digital line 11 (PWM B). Compatible connectors are not included. See related products for suitable connectors.

  Electric Sheep - Android
Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep? Well if not, they should. The Electric Sheep board is a development tool (similar to the Arduino Mega ADK) for creating custom Android accessories. Based on the ATMEGA2560-16AU and carrying the same bootloader as the Arduino Mega 2560, this board communicates with your Android device over USB by taking advantage of Android's "Open Accessory" protocol. Android device-side interfaces can even be created without having to write Java code or mess around with the Eclipse IDE by using HandBag for Android! Features: ATMEGA2560-16AU Microcontroller Pre-loaded with Mega 2560 Bootloader USB-Host Connector On-board for Connection to Android Devices Create Android Accessories using the Arduino IDE and HandBag Arduino-style Pin Configuration (Shield Compatible) FTDI Header for Programming Input Voltage: 6-15VDC Dimensions: 53.50 x 101.50mm Note: Because of the configuration of the Open Accessory protocol, this board needs to supply 500mA to the Android device over the USB connection. If you're running peripheral devices from the board, you will need to provide more current to the DC input, which is rated for up to 1.5Amps.

  LCD Modul 2.4" TFT
ITDB02 is a TFT LCD Screen Module , 40pins interface , not just a LCD break but include the Touch , SD card and Flash design. So its a powerful extension module for your project. The LCD in the ITDB02 is 240374PQ . Its a 65K color , 320*240 (resolution),2.4 inch TFT LCD screen.The LCD has a wide viewing angle , the contrast is also very suitable. The Screen include a controller ILI9325, its a support 8/16bit data interface , easy to drive by many MCU like STM32 ,AVR and 8051. ITDB02 is designed with a touch controller in it . The touch IC is ADS7843 , and touch interface is included in the 40 pins breakout. We will offer two version of ITDB02 , one is with touch screen and touch controller , another is without the touch function , it will just use as a LCD screen for display- so it will be inexpensive than former. Another useful extension in the ITDB02 is the SD Card socket . It use the SPI mode to operate the SD card, the SPI interface include in the 40pins breakout. There is a reserve extension design in the ITDB02 , thats the external flash . Its leave the pad and the pins out for the SST25VF016B Flash. So when you need , you can easily add a external flash for your project . The IDTB02 layout a 40 pins interface for your project , the interface include LCD bus, SD card bus, Touch screen bus and the Flash bus. The pins named with D_ is the touch bus , the pins named with SD_ is SD bus, the pins named with F_ is Flash bus. ITDB02 is work at 3.3v DC, if you need to connect the module with the 5v voltage I/O , you need to add the 30k and 20k resistors to reduce voltage. ITDB02 default use the 8bit mode , and if you need the 16 bit mode, you can tear the LCD screen down form the board , and move the R2 resistor to R1 to change the data mode. Its a hard job , and easy to destroy the screen, so if you need a 16bit mode , you had better tell us before shipping , we will set the data mode for you. When you use the 8bit mode , the DB8-DB15 is used ,please remember to pull the DB0-DB7 to GND.

  Vernier sensor shield
This is the Vernier Interface Shield, a simple add-on to give your Arduino the capability to interface with Vernier sensors. Attached to this interface shield are four British Telecom sockets (2 Analog, 2 Digital) which all Vernier sensors use as connectors. Like any other shield, simply attach it to an Arduino development platform. This shield was developed to be used with the Arduino Uno platform but will still work with other Uno equivalents like the Leonardo or SparkFun RedBoard. Vernier Software and Technology has been a leader in data collection and analysis for educators world-wide. They were amongst the first companies to design and promote the use of computers, sensors, and data collection in K-12 classroom laboratory experiments.

  TinkerKit Push button
The Pushbutton Module is possibly the simplest sensor available. It detects when a person or an object presses on its circular cap. Output:This module outputs 5v when the button is pressed and 0v when released. Pressing the button closes the circuit. When connected to an input on the Arduino using the TinkerKit Shield, you can expect a value of 1023 while the button is pressed and 0 when released. Module Description: This module features a 12mm pushbutton , the standard TinkerKit 3pin connector, a green LED that signals that the module is correctly powered and a yellow LED that is lit only when the button is pressed. This module is a SENSOR. The connector is an OUTPUT which must be connected to one of the INPUT connectors on the TinkerKit Shield.
