    Arduino Micro

    The Arduino Micro is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega32u4 (datasheet), developed in conjunction with Adafruit. It has 20 digital input/output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs and 12 as analog inputs), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a micro USB connection, an ICSP header and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a micro USB cable to get started. It has a form factor that enables it to be easily placed on a breadboard.

    The Micro is similar to the Arduino Leonardo in that the ATmega32u4 has built-in USB communication, eliminating the need for a secondary processor. This allows the Micro to appear to a connected computer as a mouse and keyboard, in addition to a virtual (CDC) serial / COM port. It also has other implications for the behavior of the board; these are detailed on the getting started page.

    1. My First Arduino: possible microquadcopter controller?

      Posted by on

      For a first arduino, it's simple to program and fun to get on with.
      It fits nicely on a breadboard, and has onboard LEDs to test.
      The only downside I can see is that the USB driver is in software, which means that you have to wait a while (or after upload) before you can monitor the USB port for serial output. Otherwise, I'm very happy with this tiny marvel!
