The Arduino marketplace includes a long list of controller boards and add-on accessories. This guide shows some of the best Arduino-compatible products available.

Arduino starter kits

(www.amazon.com) Arduino Starter Kit - English Official Kit With 170 Page Book

This is the official Arduino UNO starter kit from the Arduino organization. The kit comes with manuy useful parts, including a solderless breadboard, a fistful of jumper wires, an LCD screen, LED's, resistors, transistors, diodes, motors, servo motors, and other components required for homebrewing circuits. It comes with a wooden base on which the breadboard and Arduino sits, making for a sturdier/safer surface on which to do your wizardry. That it comes with an LCD screen means you do not have to pay extra.

This kit includes a genuine Arduino UNO along with manuy useful parts. The kit includes a solderless breadboard, a fistful of jumper wires, LED's, resistors, transistors, diodes, motors, servo motors, and other components required for homebrewing circuits. It comes with a "holder" on which the breadboard and Arduino sits, making for a sturdier/safer surface on which to do your wizardry.

This kit includes a clone of the Arduino UNO. If you care about a Genuine Arduino, look at another kit. Since the Arduino is an open source design other companies are free to build the same board, and that's what Elgoo has done. It includes a solderless breadboard, a fistful of jumper wires, LED's, resistors and other components required for homebrewing circuits. The component selection is very useful, however everything has that "Cheap Chinese Clone" feel to it. The jumper wires especially feel flimsy.

Shields

(www.amazon.com) RS232/RS485 Shield for Arduino

This Arduino shield adds the ability to connect to RS-232 Serial ports, or a RS-485 network. It mounts directly on the Arduino shield interface, and passes through the connections allowing other shields to mount on top of itself. There is an area to wire up custom circuits, and a couple switches to select the operation mode. One switch selects between RS232 and RS485, while the other switch selects between UART and Soft serial. You use Soft Serial to upload programs into the Arduino, and UART to connect to devices.
