I. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronics projects. Arduino consists of
both a physical programmable circuit board (often referred to as a microcontroller) and a piece
of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, used to
write and upload computer code to the physical board.
The Arduino platform has become quite popular with people just starting out with electronics,
and for good reason. Unlike most previous programmable circuit boards, the Arduino does not
need a separate piece of hardware (called a programmer) in order to load new code onto the board
you can simply use a USB cable. Additionally, the Arduino IDE uses a simplified version of
C++, making it easier to learn to program. Finally, Arduino provides a standard form factor that
breaks out the functions of the micro-controller into a more accessible package.
The Uno is one of the more popular boards
in the Arduino family and a great choice for
beginners. Well talk about whats on it and
what it can do later in the tutorial. The
Arduino hardware and software was
designed for artists, designers, hobbyists,
hackers, newbies, and anyone interested in
creating interactive objects or environments.
Arduino can interact with buttons, LEDs,
motors, speakers, GPS units, cameras, the
internet, and even your smart-phone or your
TV! This flexibility combined with the fact
that the Arduino software is free, the
hardware boards are pretty cheap, and both
the software and hardware are easy to learn has led to a large community of users who have
contributed code and released instructions for a huge variety of Arduino-based projects. For
everything from robots and a heating pad hand warming blanket to honest fortune-telling
machines, and even a Dungeons and Dragons dice-throwing gauntlet, the Arduino can be used as
the brains behind almost any electronics project.
Arduino is an open source microcontroller which can be easily programmed, erased and
reprogrammed at any instant of time. Introduced in 2005 the Arduino platform was designed to
provide an inexpensive and easy way for hobbyists, students and professionals to create devices
that interact with their environment using sensors and actuators. Based on simple microcontroller
boards, it is an open source computing platform that is used for constructing and programming
electronic devices. It is also capable of acting as a mini computer just like other microcontrollers
by taking inputs and controlling the outputs for a variety of electronics devices. It is also capable
of receiving and sending information over the internet with the help of various Arduino shields,
which are discussed in this paper. Arduino uses a hardware known as the Arduino development
board and software for developing the code known as the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development
Environment). Built up with the 8-bit Atmel AVR microcontroller's that are manufactured by
Atmel or a 32-bit Atmel ARM, these microcontrollers can be programmed easily using the C or
C++ language in the Arduino IDE. Unlike the other microcontroller boards in India, the Arduino
boards entered the electronic market only a couple of years ago, and were restricted to small scale
projects only. People associated with electronics are now gradually coming up and accepting the
role of Arduino for their own projects. This development board can also be used to burn (upload)
a new code to the board by simply using a USB cable to upload. The Arduino IDE provides a
simplified integrated platform which can run on regular personal computers and allows users to
write programs for Arduino using C or C++.

II. OBJECTIVES
To familiarize students in using the Arduino UNO Microcontroller Board and the
Arduino IDE software.
To familiarize students in creating their own Sketches using Arduino IDE.
To familiarize students in uploading Sketches to the Arduino Board

III. MATERIALS:
Arduino Uno
Printer port
IV. PROCEDURE
Steps in building a project using Arduino.

1. Write the code that tells the Ardiuino UNO what to do on your computer usng the Arduino
software.
2. Connect your Arduino UNO to your computer, and upload your code into the board.
3. Build and connect your circuit to your Arduino UNO.

V. DATA AND RESULT

PROGRAM: BLINK

void setup() {
pinMode(13, OUTPUT);
}

void loop() {

digitalWrite(13, HIGH);
delay(1000);
digitalWrite(13, LOW);
delay(100);
}

VI. ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION

As the activity goes on the class were ask to make the Led in arduino board to turn on 10 times
on than it is off. The main goal of the activity is to be familiarize the working principle of arduino
which will be based on the program itself and if the program will be accepted by the arduino board.

VII. CONCLUSION

In this paper, I have studied the working principle of Arduino, its hardware / software features
and its applications as to where it is currently being used and where all it can be used. I have also
learnt how to write sketches for Arduino in its own IDE (software). Developing new ideas with
Arduino is endless, with the help of this paper I have learnt to build new devices of our own to
create and implement innovative things. From wearable fashion to space research, the possibilities
of using an Arduino to learn and develop new ideas is infinite. Though it does have its own
limitations, it is a great tool that can be used in learning.
