Learn microcontroller basics for coding and application design using the versatile open-source Arduino microcontroller board.

What is a microcontroller and how does it work?
Microcontrollers can take inputs from the device they controlling and retain control by sending the device signals to different parts of the device. A good example is a TV's microcontroller. It takes input from a remote control and delivers its output on the TV screen.

What is Arduino microcontroller board?
Arduino 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.
