A development board is basically a printed circuit board with circuitry and hardware on-board to facilitate experimentation with certain microcontrollers. These boards can save you from a lot of repetitive tasks. These development boards can be used in multiple projects, so it is a one-time investment.
Typically, components of a development board include: 1. Power circuit (typically, set up to run from a 9V/12V power supply) 2. Programming interface 3. Basic input circuitry, like buttons 4. Basic output circuitry, like LEDs 5. Input/output (I/O) pins access (to be used for everything else such as motors, sensors and LCD screens).
Now we study about a very useful and easily accessible development board i.e Arduino.
Description of Arduino
Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronics projects. It consists of both a physical programmable circuit board (often referred to as a microcontroller) and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, used to write and upload computer code to the physical board.
Now we will see the different types of Arduino boards
