Every flavour of Arduino available right here in Australia! Core Electronics is an official distributor of Arduino in Australia and all products are covered by an in-country warranty. Our extended distribution network gives you access to hundreds of Arduino related products. Express delivery available via Australia Post.
We have a vast range of tutorials (created by us!) and we hold regular workshops to upskill makers and educators.
If you are new to Arduino then get started with our Arduino Workshop where we walk you through step-by-step:
The Arduino Mega 2560 is an update on the older Mega board and provides a 54 digital IO pins, perfect for larger projects. If you've worked with the Arduino Uno, or other smaller Arduino boards, then you'll love the Mega 2560.
The Arduino UNO R4 WiFi merges the RA4M1 microprocessor from Renesas with the ESP32-S3 from Espressif, creating an all-in-one tool for makers with enhanced processing power and a diverse array of new peripherals.
Looking for a tool to simplify and speed up your IoT prototyping? Look no further than the Arduino MKR WiFi 1010! With extended computational power and low power Wi-Fi, this compact board is perfect for emerging IoT projects.
These are generic boards that are built from open source designs. We recommend you buy official boards (listed above) as we guarantee they will work with all Arduino® educational resources where referenced and will support the creative team behind Arduino® along with their future innovations.
The Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analogue inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button.
The Leonardo is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega32u4. It has 20 digital input/output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs and 12 as analog inputs), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a micro USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.
The Nano V3.0 is compatible with the Arduino Nano V3.0. This is a small, complete, and breadboard-friendly board based on the ATmega328. It has more or less the same functionality of the Arduino Duemilanove, but in a different package. It lacks only a DC power jack, and works with a Mini-B USB cable instead of a standard one.
It’s blue! It’s thin! It’s the Pro Mini! This is a 5V board running the 16MHz bootloader. Pro Mini does not come with connectors populated so that you can solder in any connector or wire with any orientation you need
Unleash your creativity with the Official Arduino Starter Kit! This comprehensive kit has everything you need to learn electronics and build 15 innovative projects, including a spaceship interface, color mixing lamp, and more. Perfect for makers looking to dive into the world of Arduino!
This Arduino beginner kit is a great way to learn how to use Arduino hardware. You'll get a basic introduction to the Arduino world and a range of products which can be used for a huge range of projects. Tutorials are prewritten and available online, they start from basic LED control to more advanced IR remote control. If you are new to microcontrollers and physical computing then this kit is for you!
If you're prototyping a circuit big or small, then you'll want a quality breadboard, and this one is awesome! It's got dual isolated power rails perfect for complex projects, 830 tie points, and sturdy spring connectors.
This assortment of through-hole Resistors comes jam-packed with 500 separate resistors, broken down into 20 of the most common resistance values you'll ever need. The folded sleeve packaging offers a awesome way to keep your collection organised over the course of many projects.
These tactile buttons are great for all sorts of projects. This assortment comes with 2 of each of 6 different colors for a total of 12 buttons. The colored caps are removable and the buttons fit into breadboards. See the drawing below for exact dimensions.
Heart rate data can be really useful whether you’re designing an exercise routine, studying your activity or anxiety levels or just want your shirt to blink with your heart beat. The problem is that heart rate can be difficult to measure. Luckily, the Pulse Sensor Amped can solve that problem!
This non-invasive current sensor (also known as a “split core current transformer”) can be clamped around the supply line of an electrical load to tell you how much current is passing through it. It does this by acting as an inductor and responding to the magnetic field around a current-carrying conductor. By reading the amount of current being produced by the coil, you can calculate how much current is passing through the conductor.
The new soil moisture sensor uses Immersion Gold which protects the nickel from oxidation. Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) has several advantages over more conventional (and cheaper) surface platings such as HASL (solder), including excellent surface planarity (particularly helpful for PCB's with large BGA packages), good oxidation resistance, and usability for untreated contact surfaces such as membrane switches and contact points.
This is a very popular LCD Keypad shield for Arduino or Freeduino board. It includes a 2x16 LCD display and 6 momentary push buttons. Pins 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 are used to interface with the LCD. Analog Pin 0 is used to read the pushbuttons. The LCD shield supports contrast adjustment and backlit on/off functions. It also expands analog pins for easy analog sensor reading and display.
Calling this the “Serial Enabled LCD Kit” doesn’t do justice to how cool it actually is. After you’ve assembled this all-PTH kit, you’ll be left with a fully Arduino-compatible development board that just happens to have a white on black 16x2 display built-in.
This is similar to other 16x2 character LCDs that you’ve seen before but with one vibrant difference: The backlight is actually an RGB LED. This means that you can change the backlight of this display to any color you want by controlling the three backlight levels. It also utilizes an extremely common parallel interface so code is freely available (check below for an Arduino example). You will need ~11 general I/O pins to interface to this LCD screen, plus an extra 3 pins for the RGB backlight.
