Hello, This is my first post and I'm new to the (practical) world of electronics.
I have a very basic understanding of electronics like, P=VI, calculating parallel and series resistance, etc... But have never really put this understanding into practice.
I would like to start with simple circuits on a bread board.
Can I use the Arduino simply as a power supply for a breadboard? I figure, why deal with batteries or buy/build a power supply and then later buy an arduino, if I can buy the arduino right off the bat.
I'm also trying to decide if (when I'm ready), the raspberry pi would be a better option than the arduino. SO I guess same question for the raspberry pi. Can it be used purely as a power supply for a breadboard.
If it helps, I will start with simple analog circuits, maybe RLC filters, an LED circuit, etc...
