Which microcontroller to choose? Answered

Hi all,

I need to use a microcontroller for my project and am thinking of getting the arduino UNO R3 development board which composes of the ATmega328 microcontroller.

I have to connect a small motor, a 16x2 LCD display and a miniature heating element to the arduino. I would like to know if the UNO R3 is suitable for my project.

PS: I am very new and noob regarding microcontrollers

Yes that would work. You'd need additional electronics to drive the motor and heating element since the pins on an arduino can provide only a limited amount of current.

Put some numbers on "heating element" and "motor" for current, voltage and power.
