Arduino is the largest open-source hardware platform in the world and offers infinite possibilities on what you can achieve using simple microcontroller-based products. Learning how to program using the Arduino platform is a never-ending process. New hardware is designed and unveiled to the market every day, but the good thing is that the basics remain the same.
Therefore, the best way to start off is by learning the basics using an Arduino starter kit. That way, you will be able to work with any Arduino-based board in the market. In this article, I will tell you about some of the best Arduino starter kits that are available on the market.
The official Arduino starter kit comprises of the official starter kit from Arduino and the tutorial book from Make Magazine – Getting Started with Arduino: The Open Source Electronics Prototyping Platform. The kit has components for 15 projects an Arduino R3, Arduino pinout quick reference chart and 200 electronic components and parts.
Vilros Arduino starter kit comes with an Arduino Uno R3 board, holder, breadboard, USB cable, jumper wires, leds, DC motors, relay and small servo motor. There are 190 electronic components in the kit and 72-page instruction manual.
The Sainsmart starter kit has 20 tutorial projects and a set of most commonly used electronics components. The kit has a Sainsmart UNO-R3 board and detailed tutorials, project introductions and source codes can be acquired via the Sainsmart customer support.
