arduino board

  • I know nothing about electronics. It seems on sparkfun there are several different arduino boards and i'm not really sure which one to use in attempting to build an arduinome. this seems the most logical:

  • Yup that's teh one to get, especially if you are using the unsped shield, which is designed to just sit on the top.

    There are a ton of other ones you can use, but this is the most straight forward one (it's almost "plug and play").

  • thanks man. now, the best way to get a shield would be from one of these group buys that usually pop up every month? or are there alternatives?

  • @brothertony: Yes, the group buys are the most direct route. Keep in mind that the group buy will get you the shield board. You still have to buy the components and put it together yourself. :-)
