On this tutorial, we will show the new Arduino Leonardo. The Leonardo has 14 digital and 6 analog I/Os. It is powered by the Atmega32u4, which is an USB device. It can emulates keyboard, mouse and serial port. The microcontroller has 32KB of flash and 2.5KB of RAM. A major difference is that the Leonardo can be used directly as an USB device.
Here we will demonstrate the…Continue

From the Arduino Blog:
The Arduino Wifi Shield is finally here!
We’ve been working for a while on this new wifi shield for Arduino that is quite different from what you can find already on the market.
Instead of just getting the usual pre-made module we decided to build a product that would encourage hacking and modifications so we decided to use an AVR32 processor running an open source version of TCP/IP and the WIFI software stack. The…

On this tutorial, we will show how to use the hall effect sensor with Arduino. The hall effect sensor is a device that senses the magnetic field around, for example from a magnet or a wire with electric current. This sensor works as an on-off switch. If you get a magnet and put a magnetic north close to the sensor, it will be…Continue
