Features and configuration of Arduino Uno CH340G

Hi Team,

I am very new to arduino, i bought the basic model ardunio board Arduino Uno R3 Compatible Development Board ATmega328P & CH340G, i didn't know what are the features and configurations are available in this board. Can you please list out what are the features available in this board, i asked like bluetooth, infrared like that. I get much interested with arduino, if i get learned from this board, i will buy higher specification with wifi support board. So kindly help me to sort out basic things, what are the things i have done with this board. I am eagerly waiting for your quick reply.

The Arduino Uno is the easiest board to start with. You probably bought a clone on Ebay with the CH340G chip. Did you install the driver for the CH340G ? ( http://www.wch.cn/download/CH341SER_EXE.html ).

Can you make the led blink ? That is the first thing to try. The example "Blink" is in the Arduino IDE.

The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller without external pheripherals. It is up to you to add leds or sensors or bluetooth. You could add RGB leds to it, for example NeoPixels. Or a temperature sensor and a baromic pressure sensors. When have tried a few of those things, you can try to connect a Bluetooth module. However, it is a lot easier to use the Uno for testing and experiments, and for Bluetooth use this : https://www.adafruit.com/products/2661

Bluetooth, wifi, 433mhz, xbee, rf24l01, rs232, rs485, ethernet, sensors, motors, lcd displays, buzzers, buttons, switches, and more. Each one of this functionalities require extra module or shield.
