1) Tools

The best way how to really check or measure something related to all the Arduino stuff is to take an oscilloscope and do the job - of course. Somebody says it is not common that DIYer has a scope! I can just say - it WAS not common! :-)

The first one is called "DSO nano" and it is really handy and amazing! The second one "Scope for DIYers" is quite cheap but also very useful!

2) Arduino Boards

I would have to use all my family fingers to count how many different Arduino boards have been already designed! It is really cool to see this evolution.

We have also added some interesting Arduino boards!

The Seeeduino Mega is one of the most powerful and versatile Arduino board even its size is very similar to Duemilanove!

Arduino Pro Mini 328 can be used in very small applications without any compromise if we talk about power!


 Arduino Pro 328 is a way for advanced users who want to build a professional application on Arduino platform.

Arduino Pro 328 - 5V/16MHz


3) Cellular

To make an application based on a GSM module might be difficult especially if the module has some small connector (they all have small connectors ;-).

It is much easier to start if you use a GM862 Evaluation Board or just a GM862 SMD Connector.

4) Wireless

Here is a living proof that Arduino platform has no border. The WiFly Shield equips your Arduino the ability to connect to 802.11b/g wireless networks!

5) Prototyping

Everybody likes to take a breadboard and try something. We would like to support you in that way!

Here are the popular Jumper Wires F/F and Jumper Wires M/M.


Mini Breadboard and Half size Breadboard for your prototyping needs.



We can say we live in the age of "comfortable prototyping". Following  Adjustable Breadboard Power supply is very helpful.

6) Components

We are going to have larger range of components and especially sensors in future. We have started with simple to use PIR Motion Sensor and professional Ultrasonic Range Finder.


Here is a pretty small LCD Display Module with with cool blue LED backlight. Checkout how to use it with Arduino!



I would say that RGB LED is one of the most favorite basic part for Arduino DIYer!


7) Miscellaneous

The MP3 Trigger is quite possibly the most versatile, low-cost, low power embedded MP3 Player!

8) Arduino Shields

Spark Fun Arduino ProShield Kit is a nice and clever prototyping shield. Besides the standard capabilities it can be used together with Mini Breadboard!


Seeed Studio Arduino ProtoShield kit offers even places for soldering of USB connector and potentiometer and many other features.


SD card shield is a Break out board for standard SD card. It will allow you to add mass storage and data logging to your project!


9) Arduino Kits

The Arduino Kits are a way for beginners how to start of course but are also being very interesting for advanced user because they contain LOTS of useful parts.

SparkFun Arduino Starter Kit is a best example of all-purpose kit sold for cutting edge price.

On the other hand the Seeed Studio Catalyst pack with Seeeduino 328 is a huge Arduino kit that allows making also advanced application without any compromise. I don´t think you will miss anything if you take this kit :-). It is delivered with popular Seeeduino 328 board.


And here is something really special for beginners! We can build electronics projects just as easy as piling bricks now! Yes! Seeed Studio comes with Electronics Bricks! By using them, you may connect Arduino compatible boards easily with various digital, analog and I2C/Uart interfaces. Here is an Electronic Bricks - Starter kit. Great idea Seeed Studio!


10) Arduino Accessory

The Serial enabled LCD backpack allows you to control a parallel based LCD over a single-wire serial interface!

Harness Kit is intended for mounting of all the Arduino stuff so there is no mess anymore. The good think is that it can be used with all Arduino boards.
