  • Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple i/o board and a development environment that implements the Processing/Wiring language. Arduino can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP). The boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled; the open-source IDE can be downloaded for free.

  • For more information, see the website at: or the forums at:

  • To report a bug in the software or to request a simple enhancement go to:

  • More complex requests and technical discussion should go on the Arduino Developers mailing list:!forum/developers

  • If you're interested in modifying or extending the Arduino software, we strongly suggest discussing your ideas on the Developers mailing list before starting to work on them. That way you can coordinate with the Arduino Team and others, giving your work a higher chance of being integrated into the official release!forum/developers

Arduino is an open source project, supported by many.

The Arduino team is composed of Massimo Banzi, David Cuartielles, Tom Igoe, Gianluca Martino, Daniela Antonietti, and David A. Mellis.

Arduino uses the GNU avr-gcc toolchain, avrdude, avr-libc, and code from Processing and Wiring.
