Ever wonder how the Arduino IDE translates your code into instructions for the processor?
Earlier today, Arduino announced a new partnership with Microsoft and special support for Windows.
A look at implementing the Arduino blink.ino sketch as an explicit state machine. To further explore state machines, an alarm clock state diagram is drawn and implemented.
We want to update our customers on where we stand with the on-going Arduino saga.

The release of Arduino 1.6 has really improved my Arduino-programming life thanks to custom platform support, command line utilities and line numbers!
An experiential learning project to teach students in high school and college how to use embedded electronics to accomplish things in the field as a proof of concept. - By Daniel Blake
We've partnered with 14-year-old whiz kid Quin Etnyre to bring his first Kickstarter to life!
I met Reagan at Maker Faire New York, and I ask him some questions about his recent project: an animatronic Jackal helmet from Stargate.
We often teach beginning learners that the standard 16 MHz Arduino Uno is fast... really fast. 16 MHz means 16 Million cycles per second -- or that translates to 1/16 millionths of a second per cycle. That's a mere 62.5 ns. That's fast. So, is the Arduino _really_ that fast? Let's see...
Be the master of your own electronics destiny with the help of our workshops!
If you're looking to chat with those on the "other side," might as well do it with Arduino!
Many schools and homes have VEX robotics systems. It's an awesome and amazing platform. I've casually mentioned to several friends that integrating VEX with Arduino is super simple to do... Here's a quick snap-shot at what we got working today.
Overview of the related M2X Learn tutorial, which walks users through the process of connecting an Arduino and CC3000 to AT&T's M2X service.
