Arduino Uno Rev 3 (Make SMD Version) is a product we worked closely with the good folks at Arduino to bring you. Functionally, they are identical to a regular Arduino Uno R3 (with SMD microcontroller) but feature exclusive Make branding to set them apart from the rest! The front showcases the Make logo in a partially gridded white racing stripe. The back features a blue Make Robot which contrasts nicely against a white background. These Arduinos look so good you may want to get two - one for your project and one for display!
Arduino is an amazing tool for physical computing — it's an open source microcontroller board, plus a free software development environment. Use it to make cool interactive objects that can sense inputs from switches, sensors, and computers — and then control motors, lights, and other physical outputs in the real world. This special Make branded version features an SMD chip hard soldered to board.
The Uno is compatible with all current shields and code, and comes assembled — simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery.
