Arduino Open Source Hardware Platform

Arduino is an open source hardware platform for making interactive objects that can sense and control the physical world. Since 2005, a worldwide community of "makers" has flocked to this open source platform and Atmel microcontrollers have been there from the beginning, providing simple but powerful MCUs as the "hardware" in the platform. Artists, designers, inventors, engineers, musicians and even school children can use Arduino boards designed around Atmel® AVR® or Atmel ǀ SMART ARM®-based MCUs to turn their ideas into working reality.

Atmel® AVR® MCUs

With a unique combination of performance, power efficiency and design flexibility, Atmel®'s 8- and 32-bit AVR® MCUs deliver ease-of-use, low-power consumption and extremely high-levels of integration. Atmel's AVR MCUs complement the Atmel®|Smart portfolio of MCUs and MPUs, and are optimized to help designers bring their products faster to market. AVR MCUs offer the industry's most code-efficient architecture for C and assembly programming along with more computing performance and better power efficiency.
