Description

Getting Started With Arduino, written by Massimo Banzi, is a comprehensive introduction to the open source prototyping electronic platform Arduino.

Summary Of The Book

Arduino is a piece of hardware, a single board microcontroller, which enables the use of electronics in various multidisciplinary projects. This system is made up of an open-source board with an 8 bit Atmel AVR microcontroller. The software aspect includes a common programming language, which does the compiling, and a boot-loader, which executes the microcontroller. Getting Started With Arduino is an ideal resource for design and hobby enthusiasts. This text provides a thorough introduction to the functional and theoretical aspects of Arduino 1.0. Users stand to gain many ideas for their projects, which they can implement right away.

The text is organized into 7 chapters and 4 Appendices. The first chapter examines the nature of physical computing and the intended audience of this text. In chapter two, the author addresses topics such as prototyping, tinkering, patching, and circuit bending. The third chapter deals with topics surrounding the Arduino platform such as installing drivers, software, and hardware. The fourth chapter prompts readers to apply Arduino. In this chapter, topics such as code, Blinking an LED, sensors, actuators, and electricity are addressed. Chapters 5 and 6 cover advanced topics such as analog input, serial communication, complex sensors, coding, and circuit assembly. The final chapter covers the troubleshooting aspects of Arduino. At the end of this text, readers can find four appendices, which cover the Breadboard, Reading Resistors and Capacitors, Arduino Quick Reference, and Schematic Diagrams.

Inside the text, readers will learn about important features such as interaction design, physical computing, Arduino hardware, electricity basics, electronics, prototyping, and drawing schematic diagrams. In order to use the beginner examples, readers will require Arduino Uno, a USB A-B cable, and an LED. Getting Started With Arduino was published in 2011.

Truly for beginners and knowledge hungry geeks

It is truly for beginners,detailed information about arduino and how to start,explaining how to code even when you don't know how to program,explains how to setup the IDE and start to upload code,a must buy product for arduino hackers,I bought my first arduino on 9/1/2012 and since then I am making and modifying stuff ,but when I bought this bookI got to know what I was lacking since I bought my arduino uno R3.

Very helpful,deserves 5/5 !

Excellent For beginniers

This book is excellent for beginners.
But if u r an electronics/computer engineers then you may find the first few chapters superfluous and boring.
However the later chapters are good.
But having a book from the people who found Arduino in itself a privileged.
