A guided tour of the Arduino Uno. This is a really basic and I hope somewhat humorous introduction to the layout of the Arduino board and some of its functions. The Arduino is open-source and the images are my own or downloaded from public domain stuff in the Google Sketchup 3D Warehouse. Music is royalty-free from Kevin MacLeod.
More info on the Arduino is at http://www.arduino.cc

I don’t know why the Arduino board looks square on Youtube.

A while ago, I bought a LCD117 serial LCD backpack from Modern Device to save a few pins on my Arduino board. Everything worked great because the micro-controller, the serial backpack and the LCD display all required 5 volts for power and logic levels.
But when I tried connecting the serial LCD backpack to a netduino micro-controller, nothing worked: the netduino uses 3.3 volt logic levels while the LCD117 serial backpack expects 5 volt logic levels.

Within this article we are going to examine another new kit available from Freetronics, a company formed to provide many interesting Arduino-based products after the publication of the book “Practical Arduino” by Jonathan Oxer and Hugh Blemings – which in itself is a good read, there are many interesting projects to make and learn from.
Today we examine their answer to “is there a kit version of the TwentyTen Arduino Duemilanove-compatible board?” – by assembling their KitTen. Some people may be wondering why one would want to build a KitTen instead of an assembled unit. Personally I could think of the following reasons:

From the comments on dangerousprototypes.com CPLD post:
Programmable logic meets the Arduino. The Amani 64 is a low-cost entry-level CPLD development kit, stackable with the Arduino, other Amanis, and Arduino-compatible shields. The Amani 64 by itself is a capable embedded controller but becomes an even more powerful tool when teamed up with the Arduino or other Amanis.

Tronixstuff has published the first part of their tutorial series on using a GSM cellular modem with the Arduino. In this part they cover hardware interfacing and testing, sending a text message, and embedding data within a message. This part is the latest is a series of Arduino tutorials posted by Tronixstuff.

I ported the Arduino driver written by Limor Fried for the SSD1306 monochrome OLED display to the netduino last week. The Arduino driver bit-bangs the data to the display controller, which is relatively slow. I attempted to speed up data transfers by driving the display using hardware SPI on the neduino. Oddly enough, this approach did not work and I have not yet found the root cause. As a result, I resorted to the bit-bang method. Because the SSD1306 OLED display supports a variety of protocols, I’ll continue investigating the issue until I can find a data transfer method yielding better performance.

This article discuss how to use the Matrix Orbital 20×4 display with Arduino via I2C using the Wire library. The LK204-25 is a serial display, so connection to the Arduino requires just two wires to accept I2C commands and data. If you are looking to drive a LCD via parallel interface and Arduino then take a look at LiquidCrystal library. [via]

This project shows how to use the BMP085 Barometric Pressure Sensor with Arduino. The BMP085 pressure sensor combines a absolute barometric pressure sensor (aka barometer) with an temperature sensor and communicates with arduino using I2C protocol.
