Arduino or Arduino IDE is a type of Integrated Development Environment which is written in C++ and C. The software is made for Windows, Linux, and macOS and can be used to program boards which are compatible with Arduino, but with some third-party add-ons, the same IDE can be used for other boards which may not be compatible with the original software. The software is released with the version 2 GNU General Public License, the software is very similar to the C++ and C programming languages, you can also say that the language is same just a specific structure difference. The software is made for the x86-64, ARM, and IA-32 architecture, the software supplies its software library through a Wiring project, which provides several standard output and input procedures.
Seeing the rise in popularity of the Arduino IDE, other software platforms also started using custom and open source tools (core) and compilers, using which you can upload and build sketches. The upload can be done to the other microcontrollers which support the official Arduino boards and microcontrollers. In October 2019, Arduino started providing the software with debugging tools and more advanced features.
- Pluggable core- The software comes with newer and better architecture, which can an even more extensive array of USB devices, without any change of cores. The libraries based on these systems are being developed.
- Arduino builder- The software wok with the help of a command line and is capable of managing the cores, sets up compiling units, and resolves dependency on the library. The software can also be used alone and does not need continuous integration of the environment.
- Plotting serials- The software comes with the ability to plot the data provided by you in real-time, which means that you don’t have to worry about losing your data. Hence plotting the data through this software is as easy as typing Serial Serial.printIn(analogRead(Ao)) inside a loop.
- AurdinoISP- The software has an improved ArduinoISP, and now you can show or flash AVR chip using another board that may not be with Aurdino.
- New functions- The software comes with newer functions and features for library developers, it comes with examples, so that they can develop the software even further with ease, and can also link into an archive if they need any help.
- Boards and libraries manager- The software notifies you if any of cores/libraries can be updated, with a simple message or popup. The software allows development by a user so that there is no out dating of the software code, and it can always stay updated and ready to use.
