How to install Arduino on Mac

Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronic projects. The software consists of a physical structure programmable through a circuit (often referred to as a micro controller) and a software part, also called IDE (Integrated Development Environment), which is executed through the computer and used for writing and loading certain codes from physical form.

Arduino has become very popular because, unlike many programmable circuits, it does not need an external programmer, and IDE uses a simplified version of C, making it easier to learn how to program. After this, let’s see how to install Arduino on the Mac.

Arduino is a recently launched program across the country thanks to the co-ordinated support of Telecom Italia and Olivetti. Arduino is a framwork that is sold without installation cd.

This detail saves costs. To begin with, you must obtain Arduino, then install it must be connected to the Arduino website. Downloading drivers for your MAC. The first step to installing, after purchasing the original program, is to link to the following link, where you will find the download file.

Get on Hardware and look for the Arduino device, which is signaled with a question mark.
