Arduino is an open-source, flexible microcontroller system created to aid designers, artists, students, and tinkerers in completing electronic projects. Arduino works by receiving information from sensors and interacting with its environment through lights, motors, and other actuators.
The Arduino Nano is all the fun and function of the Arduino in a compact package that’s perfect for building into portable projects or mounting on a breadboard. Power and connectivity are provided through a Mini-B USB connector.
The Arduino Shields will not fit on the Nano, so if the project calls for a Shield, it will have to be mounted separately and hard-wired to the Nano.

Note: As Arduino requires learning the Arduino programming language and some degree of electronic knowledge, Parts Express recommends it for experienced and dedicated hobbyists. We suggest thoroughly reading the materials available on the Arduino homepage before proceeding.
