Presentation Outline
Introduction to Arduino Microcontrollers, Shields, etc.
Amateur Radio Applications
Examples
Getting Started
More Information

Open Source Hardware
Open Source Development Kit
User Community Driven
The Basics...
Digital IO (LEDs, switches)
Analog IO (resistive sensor data)
Serial Connection (Sensors, GPS, etc)

Program from your computer


Your limit is only your creativity!
What do these do?
Terminology
I/O Board - main microcontroller
Shield - add-on boards
Sketch - the program
Sensor - components (thermistors, etc.)
Modules - serial data (GPS module, etc.)
