Arduino is a great platform for beginners looking to get into microcontrollers, hobbyists wanting to create an interactive project, and even engineers who want to prototype something quickly. SparkFun sells over 60 boards that can be programmed using the Arduino software. This can make choosing the right board for your application a daunting process. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered: we created a comparison guide that lets you easily look at the specs for the various boards to help you decide:
If you need a more personal touch, I put together a list of my favorite boards and explained why I like to use them for each application. This will hopefully give you a starting point if you’re looking to make something with Arduino.
Do you have any personal favorites? Let us know in the comments which boards you like to use and for what kinds of projects!
