Arduino Nano passes the banana test!
The same punch is a much larger development board, but it can fit in really tiny places. This is like a banana, but thats really not the full story. I mean what is an Arduino Nano anyway, if you go to the Arduino website, there are seven different types of Nanos listed, all with different names, but each name includes the word: Nano. What gives theres the Arduino Nano or the classic Nano? The Arduino Nano every the Arduino Nano 33 iot, the Arduino Nano 33 ble, the Arduino Nano RP 2040 connect the Arduino Nano 33 ble sense and the Arduino Nano 33 ble sense, rev 2.. So what gives is there anything the same between all these boards other than the word Nano? Well, as you may have guessed, what Remains the Same across all these boards is the physical foot different. That is how the pins are physically laid out on the board, and that pin spacing is a huge convenience factor, because what you can do is plug them right into a breadboard for solderless prototyping, which make these great for all types of projects. What is also identical is Whats called the pin out. That is not only how the pins are physically spaced on the board, but those pin number references and functions are the same. They are pin equivalent so whether you have the Arduino Nano every or the Arduino Nano RP 2040 connect or an Arduino Nano ble. You can count on having 14 digital pins and eight analog pins and theyre going to be the same, PIN numbers.
What is not the same, though, is the operating voltages of these boards, the Arduino Nano and the Arduino Nano every operate at 5, volts similar to an Arduino Uno or an Arduino Mega, while all the other Nano boards run at 3. 3.3. Volts note: the 3 3 in the name thats going to stand for 3.3 volts. Another thing thats, not the same, is the number of pwm enabled pins from one Nano to the next. So if your project requires a minimum number of pwm pins, thats, definitely something youre going to want to look into for the specific Nano board youre looking at so lets go back to what is similar across all these Arduino Nano boards. Well, one thing is: they can all be programmed right inside the Arduino IDE using Arduino code thats going to run on any kind of Arduino board. Another similar thing is that you can buy each of these Nano boards with the headers soldered on or with the headers. Not soldered on in just in the box, so the headers are what extend the little pins down. So if you dont want to do any soldering make sure to buy the ones with headers, otherwise youre just going to get the headers in the box and youre going to have to solder them on yourself. But the real question weve got here is which one is right for your project. Well, it it depends if you are simply looking for a smaller Arduino like maybe youve got something running on Arduino Uno and a mega, and you want to shrink down the size.
Then youre going to want to go with an Arduino Nano, the classic one or an Arduino Nano every and of those two options. I would go with the Arduino Nano every. According to the Arduino website, the Arduino Nano every is an upgraded version of the classic Arduino Nano, the Arduino Nano every, not only costs less, but it also uses the much more common micro USB connector, as opposed to the mini USB connector used by the classic Arduino. Nano you can also buy the Arduino Nano every in packs of three or six, which is pretty handy. If youre going to be building a bunch of stuff one additional bonus to using either the classic Arduino Nano or the Arduino Nano every is they both have eeprom for saving values after your board has been powered off, something that none of the other Nano boards have. But lets say youre looking for an Arduino board that has some type of built in Wireless connectivity like Bluetooth or Wi Fi. This rules out the classic Arduino Nano and the Arduino Nano every, but it leaves you with five other options. Lets start with Bluetooth. If you need an Arduino board with Bluetooth built in you have three options: the Arduino Nano 33 ble, the Arduino Nano 33 ble sense and the Arduino Nano 33 ble sense. Rev 2.. All of these boards can connect to Bluetooth right out of the box. So if you want to build some project that sends data to your phone, these would be the right fit and, honestly, I think, its fair to rule out the Arduino Nano 33 ble sense, as it has a new rev2 version available that replaces it so whats.
The difference between the Arduino Nano 33 ble and the Arduino Nano 33 ble sense rev2. Well, it comes down to sensors the Arduino Nano 33 ble sense. Rev2 has a ton of embedded sensors on it. Its got a 9 axis inertial measurement unit. This gives you an accelerometer, a gyroscope and a magnetometer and a magnometer magnetometer magnetometer magnetometer, magnetometer humidity and temperature sensor, barometric sensor a microphone and a gesture proximity, light color and light intensity sensor. The Arduino Nano 33 ble only has an inertial measurement unit. Another interesting feature about the Arduino Nano 33 ble sense rev2 is that you can run small machine learning applications on it. In fact, the Arduino website points to a couple examples where you can run tensorflow, Lite and Tiny ml code on it. Ive played around with this a little bit and its pretty fun so which one should you choose the ble or the ble sensor F2? Well, if you plan on bringing your own sensors, then the ble is probably just going to be enough for you, but if you think you have a project that could benefit from having all those sensors right on the board, then going with the ble sensorib 2 is Probably the way to go its also worth noting here that all of the Arduino ble boards use something called m embed OS and if you plan on using them, youll have to take the really easy step of installing the embed OS core on the Arduino IDE.
But what if you want an Arduino Nano board that connects to Wi Fi? Well youre? In luck, because the Arduino Nano 33 iot and the Arduino Nano RP 2040 connect both connect to Wi Fi and to Bluetooth and Bluetooth low energy using the? U blocks: Neenah whiskey. 102., both of these boards cannot only connect to Wi Fi, but also to Bluetooth and Bluetooth. Low energy plus they both have six axis inertial measurement units built right in so whats. The main difference between these boards. Well, the biggest difference is the Arduino Nano RP 2040 connect uses the powerful Raspberry Pi RP 2040 silicon. Additionally, the Arduino Nano rp2040 connect has an onboard microphone and it can be programmed with micro python. The next video youre going to want to watch is this one right here. It is going to walk you through everything you need to know about using Arduino if youre just getting started. One thing we talk about in this video is which Arduino board you should buy.
