OK, I just got my Arduino board as well as an ultrasonic rangefinder http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=639 .
What considerations should I take into account when connecting the device to arduino? I come from the software world, so hardware is a bit alien to me. I think I’ve read that Arduino analog ins support up to 5 volts, and this device can go higher than that it seems. Do I need to take care of that before actually connecting both? Any tips/tricks to take into account?
Any help will be highly appreciated.
