Maker Nano: Simplifying Arduino for Projects
Love Maker UNO? But it’s too big to fit into your project? Worry not! Introducing Maker Nano, an Arduino board specially crafted for building projects while maintaining all the useful features of Maker UNO.
Simplifying Learning and Troubleshooting
Wiring up your own circuit is always the most tedious part of learning electronics. It’s very prone to error and sometimes, not reversible. With the help of 12 x LEDs, 1 x programmable push button and 1 x piezo buzzer, you can start coding and have some fun experimenting with Maker Nano right out-of-the-box without the hassle of wiring up any circuit. As you learn and start building projects, the LEDs for each digital I/O pin will also come handy for circuit troubleshooting.
Compatible with Original Arduino Nano
Just slightly bigger than the original Arduino Nano (1mm longer and 3mm wider) and maintaining the same pin arrangement, Maker Nano is compatible with most, if not all, of the daughter boards for Arduino Nano in the market. Not to forget it’s also breadboard friendly. The smaller form factor compared with Arduino UNO makes this a better choice not only for learning purposes but also for building projects and having fun with experiments, especially when you need to fit the board into the tiniest space possible. Unlike its bigger brother Maker UNO, Maker Nano comes with a 5V regulator which means you can power up your circuit from battery or DC adapter, besides the USB port.
