Arduino (Italian for ‘Strong man’) is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple AtMel 328 microcontroller board, and a development environment for writing software for the board.

Arduino can be used to develop interactive objects, taking inputs from a variety of switches or sensors, and controlling a variety of lights, motors, and other physical outputs. Arduino projects can be stand-alone, or they can communicate with software running on your computer. For more information on Arduino see their introduction page here: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Introduction. A board schematic as a .pdf file is available here: http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/Arduino_Uno_Rev3-schematic.pdf.

Both Arduino and LaunchPad use the Wiring framework (About Wiring). Software is written in the same pigeon C as used with LaunchPad.
