Arduino abstracts the circuit board part of electronics away from us, by giving us a pre-made integrated circuit

  • Arduino allows us to perform logical computations
    • ex. When I press this, that happens

Parts of Arduino


  1. a Printed Circuit Board (PCB), with contains the Integrated Circuit
  2. Pin headers, so we can easily connect to other devices
  3. USB port to connect to a computer
