Arduino board was designed in the Ivrea Interaction Design Institute intended for students without a background in electronics and programming concepts. This board started altering to adapt to new requirements and challenges, separating its presence from simple 8-bit boards to products for IoT (Internet of Things) applications, 3D printing, wearable, and embedded surroundings. All boards are entirely open-source, allowing users to build them separately and finally adapt them to their exact needs.

Whether you’re a newbie just getting started with electronics and embedded systems or a professional Engineer planning your next big design project, Arduino has you all covered with a Development board that best suits your requirements. For hobbyists and engineers, including me, Arduino Platform has been the go-to place for quick prototyping and design validation. But most of us fail to explore beyond the popular Arduino development boards like the Arduino UNO, nano, mega, etc.  So this tutorial is focused on bringing out all the different types of Arduino development boards and doing a quick comparison of their features and applications so that you will be able to make a better choice when you want something more than the popular UNO and nano boards.

To make things quick and easy for you, we have split all the boards into three main categories, Entry Level boards, Enhanced boards, and IoT boards. Further, we have also provided a table under each section for quick skimming, so let’s get started.
