When it comes to choosing a single-board computer or Controller, PIC Microcontroller, Arduino and Raspberry Pi are the big names that you’ll be considering. But which one should you choose? What is the Arduino best used for? What are the drawbacks of using a Raspberry Pi? Why using PIC Microcontroller? And how do you decide between the three options? It can be a tough decision, so we’ll break it down here for you.
What students are saying:
Hassaan Qadeer says, “A good course for those who are confused to decide which micro controller suites their need. Well-explained differences and great understanding of when to use which board.”
Sunil Thakur says, “Great course. Now I better understand what is what and what to use and look for when I start a project.”
M. K says, “Useful info and its worth to watch the lectures “
Farukm says, “Thanks for the comparisons/review of the three “systems”. I have a better idea on what to buy for my grandchildren. “
Roman Mishin says, “Information is good”
Welcome to this course.
For the purposes of this Course, I’ll be discussing PIC Microcontroller PIC164550, Arduino Uno R3 and the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. There are many versions of THESE boards, and there are plenty of alternatives to the PIC Microcontroller, The Pi and the Arduino that provide different specs and capabilities, but these Three are the mainstays of each line at the moment.
While both the Arduino and the Raspberry Pi are very versatile little machines, they both have specific things that they’re good at.
