Micro-board

Micro

The Micro runs on an ATmega32u4 processor with native USB communication. Configure via software whether the board is recognised as a standard Arduino, a mouse or keyboard.

The Micro is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega32U4, developed in conjunction with Adafruit. 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, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a micro USB cable to get started. It has a form factor that enables it to be easily placed on a breadboard. The Micro board is similar to the Arduino Leonardo in that the ATmega32U4 has built-in USB communication, eliminating the need for a secondary processor. This allows the Micro to appear to a connected computer as a mouse and keyboard, in addition to a virtual (CDC) serial / COM port.

USB
Built-in USB communication

The ATmega32U4 has built-in USB communication that allows the Micro to appear as a mouse/keyboard on your machine.

Pin
Flexible pins

The Micro features 20 digital pins, whereas 12 can be used as analog pins, and 7 as PWM pins.

Microcontroller
EEPROM

The ATmega32U4 features 1kb of EEPROM, a memory which is not erased when powered off.

Suggested Libraries

Keyboard
The keyboard functions enable 32u4 or SAMD micro based boards to send keystrokes to an attached computer through their micro’s native USB port.
Mouse
The mouse functions enable 32u4 or SAMD micro based boards to control cursor movement on a connected computer through their micro’s native USB port.

Arduino Basics

Built-in Examples
Built-in Examples are sketches included in the Arduino IDE and demonstrate all basic Arduino commands.
Foundations
In Foundations you can find some specific knowledge about the principles and techniques that are behind the Arduino.
Language References
Arduino programming language can be divided in three main parts: functions, values (variables and constants), and structure.
