Product description: Cytron Maker Nano - compatible with Arduino
Cytron's module is compatible with Arduino Nano. The board is equipped with 20 digital I/Os of which 6 can be used as PWM channels and 8 as analog inputs. It also has the most popular communication interfaces. Additionally, there are 12 programmable LEDs, a button and a buzzer on the module.
Unlike the Cytron Maker Uno board, the Nano version has a built-in voltage regulator, so in addition to being powered from the USB port, it allows direct power supply via the VIN pin with a voltage ranging from 7 to 30 V. This feature, combined with its small size of 21 x 46 mm, makes it a great tool for learning and small projects that require mobility.
Main differences from Arduino Nano
- 12 programmable LEDs
- Programmable button
- Built-in buzzer
- Built-in voltage regulator 7-30V
- Using USB-UART converter - CH340C
- Larger dimensions 21 x 46 mm
Programming Cytron Maker Nano module
Free Arduino IDE environment allows to create and install software. Implemented bootloader allows to upload program directly to device via USB cable. Before working with the module, you need to install driver for CH340C chip (Cytron Maker Nano module should be connected to computer during installation).
Power supply for Maker Nano module
The board can be powered through the microUSB socket with 5 V, or with a built-in voltage regulator through the VIN pin within the range of 7 V to 30 V.
