Download the new Arduino IDE 1.6.10!

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

Great news, Makers! We’re excited to announce the immediate availability of the Arduino IDE 1.6.10, AVR core 1.6.12 and SAM core 1.6.9.

The most notable feature of this release is the introduction of an up-to-date bundled toolchain for AVR containing the latest goodies from Atmel, GCC and AVRDUDE devs.

Thanks to LTO (Link Time Optimization), making your sketches smaller and faster is now only a push of the “Compile” button away.

The AVRDUDE update brings out-of-the-box support for a wide range of microcontrollers and debuggers, making it is as simple as possible to deploy. (For example, problems with Gatekeeper on Mac and dependencies on Linux are a thing of the past.) (more…)

Intel releases an improved version of the Arduino 101 core!

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

101

A few weeks ago, an announcement was posted on the Arduino Forum mentioning new improvements on the software side of the Arduino/Genuino 101. With this release, the board–which was developed in collaboration with Intel–is reaching its full potential, with not only better code generation but unlocking useful features to make your sketches even more interactive as well.

You can easily upgrade the core using the Arduino IDE’s Board Manager (pictured below), while Arduino Create users will be automatically updated, so no action is required–the cool thing about the cloud!

Arduino Create is a one stop shop for Makers

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Create_main

More than 10 years ago, we set out to simplify electronics with easy-to-use, open-source hardware. 10 years later, we’re looking to do the same for Internet of Things development with Arduino Create — an integrated online platform that enables Makers to write code, access content, configure boards, and share projects.

Traditionally speaking, going from an idea to a fully-functional IoT device has been a tedious process even for the most advanced engineers and developers. Until now, they would have to frequently switch back and forth between various tools and screens, from IDEs to cloud services. That’s why Arduino has set out to launch a one stop shop for the Maker experience, which will change the way you create, collaborate and communicate with your projects and the rapidly growing community.

Win free hardware in the world’s largest Maker survey

Monday, May 16th, 2016

As the Maker Movement continues to grow, do you ever find yourself wondering which platforms are used the most? Which programming languages are developers’ favorites? Which online tools do beginners frequent? Which boards do hobbyists prefer? Rather than second guessing, Hackster.io has partnered with today’s top hardware and community leaders, including Arduino, to collect, analyze and share real data with the largest Maker survey on Earth.

This is your opportunity to have your voice heard, so we as a whole can build better products, smarter services and fitting events for people like you. Whether you’re a seasoned engineer or just starting out, a lifelong hobbyist or a parent, the survey’s questions will help support the global community we all call home.

Take the survey now! (And you could also win one of 100+ free boards!)

And this week’s Instagram giveaway winner is…
