Getting Parts

Since the Arduino is a hardware platform, you’ll obviously need to get some parts to complete the exercises outlined in Exploring Arduino. To make this as easy as possible, I’ve partnered with Newark/element14 to assemble parts kits for the book. Visit to buy all the parts you need at once, at a discounted rate! If you prefer to buy your parts elsewhere, I’ve listed several purchasing options on the pages for each part in the digital content and parts sections of this site.
