Arduino Uno Board Arduino Uno Board

The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.

Arduino Yun Development Board Arduino Yun Development Board

Arduino YUN is the first member of a new groundbreaking line of wifi products combining the power Linux with ease of use of Arduino. The first Arduino YUN is the combination of a classic Arduino Leonardo (based on the Atmega32U4 processor) with a Wifi system-on-chip running Linino (a MIPS GNU/Linux based on OpenWRT).
