Arduino Zero Projects Book
Arduino-compatible boards are undoubtedly the most popular development tools used by hobbyists and professional developers. Numerous measurement and control systems based upon Arduino-compatible devices have already been designed and will be designed in future. This book contains the collection of projects using the new Arduino/Genuino Zero board which represents a simple, yet powerful, 32-bit extension of the Arduino UNO platform. Arduino/Genuino Zero uses Atmel's SAMD21G18 microcontroller featuring a 32-bit ARM Cortex® M0 core that offers excellent potential to create most imaginative and new ideas for high tech automation, wearable technologies, IoT and robotics.
The book is thought as a highly practical guide which can help a developer to build various measurement and control systems based upon using the Arduino/Genuino Zero and Arduino M0 Pro boards. Each project allows to understand various theoretical and practical aspects of design using Arduino/Genuino Zero. The material of the book assumes that the readers are familiar, at least, with basics of designing and assembling electronic circuits. For most projects, having some basic skills in electronics will serve the readers well and allow them to understand what is going on behind the scenes. Each project is accompanied by a brief description which helps to make things clear.
All projects were assembled and tested on the Genuino Zero / Arduino M0 Pro boards. The accompanying source code is simple and explained in detail, so the readers can easily improve it if necessary. To build the demo applications the Arduino 1.6.7 IDE (available on www.arduino.cc) was used.
