Title: does Arduino supports Parallax parts ?
Post by: karim_ltaief on Feb 23, 2013, 05:18 pm
HI everyone !
I'm new to Arduino ! and i like it very much for the great function this platforms supports ! but i got only one question does Arduino supports Parallax electronics parts (http://www.parallax.com/) ? because parallax has plenty of useful electronic parts such as cameras, touchscreens, joypads and i think using such parts on an Arduino project will make it amazing !

The short answer is yes, though you may want to check the parts' datasheets for possible issues with particular Arduino boards. Most if not all of their kickstarts include examples for Arduino http://learn.parallax.com/KickStart (http://learn.parallax.com/KickStart).

Depends on what your definition of 'support' is. If you mean to ask is there arduino software library support for every device that parallax offers then the answer is probably not for some parts and yes for some parts. If you mean can an arduino board be interfaced electrically to Parallax parts then the answer is almost always yes.

Thanks alot !! I'll keep looking for more informations from datasheets :D

To see if it is likely that someone has already done an Arduino project and posted sample code or a library with a particular part, Parallax or otherwise, google 'Arduino' and the part number or description.  Usually this will provide some more information.
