Arduino Nano R3

The Arduino Nano is one of the smallest and yet most exciting breadboard-friendly boards available on the market today. It's become exceptionally popular with beginner programmers thanks to its excellent functionality and the sheer variation of potential applications. Based on the ATmega328P, this tool is fantastic for those who wish to improve their programming skills and create some interesting and unusual projects. While the item does not come with a DC power pack, it benefits from a mini-USB cable for power, and that means you can use it with any PC or laptop device.The Nano was designed and is being produced by Gravitech. So, let’s take a look at the specs:

 

Specifications:

  • Microcontroller - ATmega328
  • Operating Voltage - 5 V
  • Flash Memory - 32 KB (2 KB used by bootloader)
  • SRAM - 2 KB
  • Clock Speed  -16 MHz
  • Analog IN Pins - 8
  • Input Voltage - 7 to 12 V
  • PWM Output - 6
  • Power Consumption - 19 mA
  • PCB Size - 18 x 45 mm
  • Weight - 7 grams

 

Finding the right project ideas to get you started with the Arduino Nano can become somewhat challenging, and that is why we’ve published some suggestions on this page that are sure to keep you occupied without the need for extensive knowledge or experience. If you want step-by-step processes for completing these projects; you can find them online with ease.

 

Project Idea 1: The Traffic Light Controller

If you’re new to Arduino programming, it makes sense to start with the basics. You can use red, yellow, and green LEDs on your breadboard to create a functional traffic light system much like you see at the roadside. However, you also have the opportunity to hack your lights and change their timing or the way in which they function. It’s a brilliant project for newbie programmers who want to get stuck in and learn how to hack and modify sequences.

 

Project Idea 2: Pulsating LED Cube

Anyone who chooses to purchase an Arduino Nano will benefit from learning how to solder correctly. That is where this pulsating LED cube project will come in handy and improve your skills. By using super-bright LEDs, it’s possible to create your cube and then program it to do some pretty funky stuff. Maybe you like the idea of making the lights pulsate in time to your favorite pop music? Perhaps you’d like the LEDs to switch on and off in a particular pattern? There are no limits to what you can achieve, and this project will help you to master many vital processes that will benefit other projects in the future.

 

Project Idea 3: Temperature Control Device

Due to adverse climates, many people choose to grow plants using artificial environments these days. Indeed, the practice of hydroponics has become popular all around the world. However, you usually need to make sure you have some kind of temperature control in place for that idea to work. Thankfully, you can use an Arduino Nano to make sure your plants never get too hot or cold. All you need is a temperature sensor, some relay or RC plug switches, a couple of screw terminals, a box to trap the heat, and a heating or cooling element.

 

The Arduino Nano is a seriously cool piece of kit that’s guaranteed to turn programming into a fun and exciting exercise while ensuring beginners don’t have to work for months to create something impressive. Try some of the project ideas on this page or come up with some original concepts. Nothing is impossible with the Arduino Nano.
