Cytron UNO Maker is compatible with popular Arduino Uno R3 module. This means that it can be programmed through the Arduino IDE using available libraries. The so-called Arduino Shields will also collaborate with the Cytron module.
The board contains an ATmega328 microcontroller, is equipped with 14 digital I/o 6 of which can be used as PWM outputs (e.g. for motor control), and 6 as analog inputs. The system works with a clock signal with a frequency of 16MHz. The module also has a microUSB connector, RESET button and leads that are to connect the AVR programmer.
Maker UNO has several differences in comparison to the Arduino UNO:
- 12 LEDs that are assigned to leads from 2 to 13
- 1 programmable button
- Built-in buzzer
- No DC connector
- MicroUSB connector: instead of USB-B
- UART converter: CH340G
In order to start Maker Uno, you must connect the system to computer using USB cable, install driver and select in the Arduino IDE, the Arduino Uno board. Detailed user manual is on the manufacturer's website.
The module can be powered via the microUSB cable. The device does not have built-in DC connector.
Creating and installing software is allowed by the free environment of the Arduino IDE. Implemented bootloader allows you to send the program directly via USB cable. ISCP connector enables connection of an external AVR programmer. A detailed description can be found in the documentation and tutorial.
