Arduino Microcontroller Feature & Size Comparison by RobotShop.com

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) 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).

  1. @azayles The …
    @azayles The Arduinosoftware (which is basically gcc-avr and avr-dude) will allow you to access all the ATMega features, as (we presume) would the BACOM software.

    The compilation efficiency should be better with gcc since it is a very popular and well maintained compiler used by thousands pf professionals around the world. But we have not nested it for a fact.

  2. How does the speed …
    How does the speed and versatility of the Arduino compare with programming the same AtMega chip in BASCOM?
    It’s a little more expensive buying an arduino than just the chip that powers it, but not so much more I’d be put off, and it seems to offer a lot of handy in built features, such as easy serial programming.

  3. Will the Arduino …
    Will the Arduino DUEMILANOVE? be good for a beginner to attach a servo motor so I can control it from my computer keyboard via USB?

  4. If you are …
    If you are referring to the Arduino Duemilanove as “the bigger one” (as opposed to the MEGA), the Duemilanove has the advantage of being compatible with shields, integrated USB port and several power options. The new mini uss a surface mount 328 while the Duemilanover uses a breadboard compatible 328 (same performance). If you want to use an Arduino right out of the box and not worry about connecting a USB to serial adapter, then choose the Duemilanove.

  5. does the mini …
    does the mini arduino work as good as the bigger one? please resond fast, thank you

  6. The Arduino …
    The Arduino microcontrollers can certainly power low watt LED’s, but for higher power LEDs or a large number of LEDs, you will need an external power supply or an LED driver board.

  7. cool do you have a …
    cool do you have a website for Australia Melbourne? dose it come with testing ?
    is the battery holder (9V battery holder with switch & 2.1mm plug )? sorry for bothering.

  8. A “microcontroller” …
    A “microcontroller” is considered the “brain” of a robot and is used to program a robot’s behavior. The Arduino is not powerful enough to control most motors directly, so you need an intermediate “motor controller”. If you are new, we suggest starting with the Arduino Duemilanove (RB-Ard-03 on RobotShop website). It is by far the most popular. People choose smaller boards (where you connect power directly to the pins) based on size, weight or other factors.

  9. sorry maybe stupid …
    sorry maybe stupid question.. can i use ardunio to program a robot ?if yes which one is the best for that? i am using Motorola hc 12, most of my friend using arduino… power supply. i saw that in da vid we dont need to use the main one we can just connected by ports to the voltage is what said is true? please tell me about ur recommendation. regards

  10. Several …
    Several manufacturers of Arduino clone boards such as Solarbotics (RB-Sbo-60), Seeedstudio (RB-See-01, 02, 08, 09) realized that as well and included the smaller USB port.

  11. The prices do not …
    The prices do not include shipping, though we do offer a free shipping option for all orders totaling $250 before taxes.
    At the time of this post, we have the Arduino Mega (RB-Ard-13) priced at ~$64, the DFRobot Mega (made in China) priced at ~$48, and the Seeedstudio Mega at $48. Note that importing a product from China directly will involve customs and duty fees, taxes etc, and several weeks of delay.

  12. We have both the …
    We have both the Boarduino kit (RB-Ada-06) and fully assembled version (RB-Ada-07) currently on our websites.

  13. Is that with …
    Is that with shipping?
    Because i found a MEGA for $44 USD. (difference is that it’s in china)

  14. “the Arduino mini ( …
    “the Arduino mini (168) can handle 2.7-5.5V”

    “use 7-9V”

    I’m confused.

  15. I consider it a …
    I consider it a mistake that they chose to use a full size USB port for the Duemilanove (did I get it right?), as mini USB is much more common and much smaller, and everyone has at least a few such cables already, for cameras etc. The Nano has mini USB though. Actually the Nano with header pins is a really attractive kit for smaller volume products.

  16. At the time of this …
    At the time of this post, there is only the prototyping shield which is the full length of the MEGA board. Most, but not all of the shields are compatible with the MEGA, one notable exception is the original Arduino Ethernet shield. If you are not certain if a shield is compatible, you can contact RobotShop directly via the Support Center.

  17. Sory for any …
    Sory for any confusion in terminology, the Arduino mini uses the ATMega168. As indicated above, the Arduino mini (168) can handle 2.7-5.5V. To get the ful functionality of the board (5V output for example), use 7-9V.
