Also, what about the micro/nano/mini arduinos? Are they easily plug'n'play like the uno? (This is an edit from another of my questions)


The ones that have a USB connector are plug-and-play with a USB host. The ones that don't need a USB-to-UART bridge.

  • What's a UART? I'm totally new to this. Also, do the arduinos I mentioned have breadboard-style connectors like the uno? – Wesley Crusher Dec 3 '14 at 7:18
  • A UART is what implements the "serial" connection. They come with bare plated holes, so some basic soldering experience is required. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Dec 3 '14 at 7:23
