ArduPy: When Arduino Met Python Mike Parks
What do you get when you combine the Arduino ecosystem with the power of the Python programming language? ArduPy! An exciting toolset that lets embedded developers use MicroPython software development while leveraging the suite of Arduino libraries for various third-party hardware sensors and actuators.

New Tech Tuesdays: Development Tools, Processors for Driver Monitoring Systems Tommy Cummings
In this week's New Tech Tuesday, we'll look at development tools from Basler and Arduino and processors from NXP Semiconductors that are essential for automotive safety systems.

A Year Later, How Does My Smart Mailbox Perform? Rafik Mitry
The Arduino MKRFOX 1200 Smart Mailbox was constructed at the Mouser Electronics Germany branch in Munich, and we have been testing it for the past year. In the following, we review the performance of the board over the previous year.

Pyro Switch: Hidden IR Detection KEMET Electronics
Pyroelectric Infrared (IR) Sensors absorb the infrared rays emitted from the human body and enable the detection of a person’s presence. In this blog, KEMET demonstrates how you can easily add presence detection capabilities to an ordinary object using Arduino and a hidden pyroelectric IR sensor.

Human Augmentation and Arduino Technologies Bruce Byfield
Arduino microcontrollers are playing a major role in the development of prosthetics and devices for human augmentation. Once aimed at students and hobbyists, today Arduino technologies offer numerous advantages typical of open source software and hardware that significantly accelerate development and reduce costs.

Mouser’s STEAMy Summer: Part 2 Mike Parks
In part 1 of our STEAMy summer blog, we talked about the resources available for parents and kids to explore STEAM topics so that they can develop hands-on embedded electronics skills through project-based learning. Now in part 2, we will dive into designing and coding an UV monitor and alert buzzer.

Mouser’s STEAMy Summer: Part 1 of 3 Mike Parks
This STEAM-inspired three-article series will explore the available resources to assist you and your kids on a maker’s adventure and walk you through an embedded electronics project. We will cover the design, build, and code for the project as well as discuss how the data from the project can be useful to develop analytical and critical thinking skills.

Arduino: Three Powerful Yet Overlooked Uses Daniel Hankewycz
Most engineers cringe when they see an Arduino in my toolbox. What they don't realize is the powerful “shape shifting” tool that this low-cost development board is. Let's look at three commonly overlooked uses for an Arduino: Digital logic analyzer, AVR programmer, and UART to USB interface.

Open Source Reinvents the Keyboard Bruce Byfield
Open source developers are rethinking the traditional mechanical keyboard. New releases, such as the Keyboardio Model 01, display an aesthetically pleasing, ergonomic, programmable, customizable, and quiet mechanical keyboard as an alternative to high-end proprietary keyboards.

Arduino 101: Pattern Matching on the Intel® Quark™ SE Microcontroller Lynnette Reese
Machines have never been as good as the human brain for sensing, perceiving, thinking about, or interpreting visual images. The human brain is also quite effective at “filling in the blanks” by making assumptions about the world around it. In some circumstances, the brain falls prey to a phenomenon referred to as an “optical illusion” in the common vernacular.
