Introduction to Arduino and Arduino IDE Configuration – Step by step instructions

   Introduction to Arduino and Arduino IDE Configuration

Hello friends, this is my first blog post. Also, this includes the introduction of the Arduino and how to set up the Arduino IDE. In the future, we will do various projects using Arduino. Based on this tutorial for them. So, let’s go to the post.




What is the Arduino and Arduino board?

Arduino Introduction.

    The Arduino board is a circuit that can compare to the computer we all know. But can’t be compared to a computer. Because the Arduino board has a microcontroller, the computer has a microprocessor. The Arduino board can only do one task at a time.
   This is implemented according to a program we have prepared. So this can also be considered as our service provider. This can be used to make the projects we need to make your daily tasks easier. It’s a very useful feature of our work. So this technology can be used for our hobbies. Arduino can be used to create great creations that are adapted to the ever-changing technology. From lighting a bulb to creating a robot, Arduino technology can be used. Today, it has spread from school children to adults. That is because of the ease of working with this. Arduino is a 100% free platform. So we can customize it as we want. We can also buy Arduino boards for a small fee. The various devices and sensors that are associated with this are available at very affordable prices.
   Different types of Arduino boards can found in the markets. We will look at them one by one in detail.

    I hope you have learned about Arduino boards. The Arduino board needs software to work like a computer. It’s 100% free software. The first time you must install this software on your computer. It’s very easy to work. Okay, let’s see how to install Arduino IDE on your computer step by step.




Step 1
Download the Arduino IDE software using this link.
Step 2
Install it on your computer as shown in the pictures below.
1.Double click this setup.
2. Click the “I Agree” button.
3. Click the next button.
4. Select your location on your computer and click the Install button.




5. Installing.
6. Click the Don’t install button.
7. OK finished installed. Click the close button.




Step 3

    OK setup installing finished, Now we want to connect the Arduino board to the computer. Now you need drivers to connect your computer and Arduino board. Click this link and download it. Afterward, install it.

1. Double click setup.
2. Install It.
3.Click the OK button.

OK, everything has done. Now connect the Arduino board to your computer using the USB cable. Check the COM ports on your computer to see if the Arduino board is properly connected to your computer. So now you have to start working with Arduino.

Check COM ports
Arduino IDE interface




So in the next article, we will talk about the first project and how to upload the code to the Arduino board. We will meet in the next post. Bye. Have a good day.
