This set provides everything needed for the construction of a smart electronic clock. The modules all feature standard 2.54mm connectors and cables which allows for solder free construction of the kit. No soldering required. The kit includes all structural elements and an illustrated guide for construction as well as a pair of weights for testing after the build.
Based on the ATmega328P chipset the UNO is the entry level Arduino-compatible board. Featuring a socket for a AC-DC adapter that can power the board and supply more current then available from the USB connection. The adapter should be 8 - 15V DC, 250mA or more, have a centre pin positive 2.1mm plug.
The board is programmed via the Arduino development software downloadable for FREE from their website. The kit comes with a number of example codes to help introduce you to the system. The board is based on the Open Source Arduino project and follows the same exact specification. This may require a driver to be installed, however this is a standard driver that is distributed by Microsoft Windows Update, is not required on Linux and can be configured in MAC OS.
