I wrote my own breadboard-Arduino tutorial, and then I found that I was struggling to program some of the boards I made. A lot of research and dead-ends got me understanding that: 1. You either need a microcontroller wi...

It is easy to choose between a 168 and a 328 chip, but what about the letters after those numbers. For the Atmega328 chip with either 28 or 32 pins, there ...

In plain English, you can use the Arduino to read sensors and control things like motors and lights. This allows you to upload programs to this board which can then interact with things in the real world. With this, you can make devices...

The reason for this is that ZIF stands for "zero insertion force," and as the name implies, ZIF sockets don't require any force to take the chip in or out. This mean...
