Introduction

Hey guys, welcome back to Techatronic. In this article, we are going to discuss different types of Arduino boards used for various purposes. Basically, the major difference among all Arduino boards is their size and the number of input and output pins. Some of them have analog input pins and some don’t. The operating voltage of all the Arduino boards is 5 volts.

types of arduino

Arduino is a microcontroller board and is widely used in industries because we can program it to perform specific tasks. if you want to learn Arduino and you need an Arduino tutorial you can bookmark our website we have uploaded all the articles. if you For writing and uploading the code we are using Arduino IDE software. If you don’t know how to operate Arduino IDE then check our article on it. so, read this full article and you will get to know all types of Arduino You can read more articles on IoT and basic electronics published by us.

Types of Arduino with specifications

Arduino is a microcontroller board that can be used to make various engineering projects. This board is easily available in the market and are very cheap as compared to other microcontroller board. There are so many variants available in the market,

so, you can pick any of them as per your requirements like if you have to perform some heavy tasks then you can go for the Arduino mega board, and if you just want to turn an LED or motor on and off then you can choose Arduino nano or lilypad. You can read about some types of Arduino boards given below.
