What is the MicroView?

The MicroView is the first chip-sized Arduino compatible that lets you see what your Arduino is thinking using a built-in OLED display.

You've never seen an Arduino™ compatible like this. With a built-in OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode Display) you can see what your Arduino is thinking without having to connect it to your computer.

"I’m a big fan of tiny Arduinos like this." - John Biggs, Techcrunch

"The MicroView is going to change the way I teach Arduino."
 - Justin Clayden, Electronics Lecturer

No more cryptic "Hello World" LED blink sequences or shoehorning oversized displays onto your tiny Arduino™. Development is much easier when you can see what's going on.

Is this the right Arduino for beginners?

Absolutely! The MicroView is the first Arduino to ship with built-in tutorials!

The immediacy of being able to see sensor values in realtime (like the Light Dependent Resistor above) really makes the whole learning process so much easier!

In addition to the built-in tutorials, we've also built a cross platform course that runs on iPadMicrosoft Surface and modern Web Browsers on Windows, Mac and Linux

The course takes you step by step through building a 11 different circuits including:

  • Blinking LEDs and creating different colors on an RGB LED.
  • Getting readings from a potentiometer (a fancy name for a knob). 
  • Taking the input from a push button.
  • Sensing Temperature and Light
  • Controlling actuators relays, motors & servos
  • Making sound

The interactive course is included within the "Learning Kit" and "Educators Kit" rewards tier.

 

What can Makers do with MicroView?

If you already know Arduino™, you will love the Arduino Library we've made that allows you to quickly display text, sprites, graphs and gauges. Checkout the awesome video made by SparkFun to get a few ideas!
