First launched in 2005, the Arduino platform is responsible for making embedded microcontroller development accessible to all. With its simple to use yet comprehensive approach, Arduino has eased the often difficult task of interfacing an embedded application to the real world of hardware devices. Arduino also heralded in an open source era which accelerated widespread adoption of the platform’s design, spawned a separate market of add-on extension boards and a host of developer communities. In this article we take a quick look at the Arduino’s evolution so far and review some of the most recent additions to the Arduino ecosystem of open source hardware.
