Prototype and Final Project

Hi to everybody,

this is my first message on Arduino forum.

I need a microcontroller for a project about measurements on photovoltaic panels.
I'd like to use Arduino but I have some troubles.
First of all, I read on Arduino's main page: " Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform". So, Is it not good for a final project? Sure, I will develop first a prototype of my system but after I want realize the true system.

Thank you to all,

Antonio

Sure, you can use it. Just make sure you note somewhere on you product that you have an arduino. Or, to save space, you could only use the chip itself.
