The Arduino Uno Board A000066 R3 is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328.
It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller - simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with an AC-to-DC adaptor or battery to get started.
The Uno differs from all preceding boards in that it does not use the FTDI USB-to-serial driver chip. Instead, it features the Atmega16U2 programmed as a USB-to-serial converter.
Operating voltage 5V
Input voltage range nom. 7-12V
Maximum supply voltage 20V
Digital I/O pins 14 (of which 6 provide PWM output)
Analog input pins 6
DC Current per I/O pin 40 mA
DC Current for 3.3V pin 50 mA
Flash memory 32 KB of which 0.5 KB is used by bootloader

Q. what are the external dimensions of the arduino?
A. Hi Cameron. Thank you for your question. See the following excerpt from the manufacturer's website: Physical Characteristics - The maximum length and width of the Uno PCB are 2.7 and 2.1 inches respectively, with the USB connector and power jack extending beyond the former dimension. Four screw holes allow the board to be attached to a surface or case. Note that the distance between digital pins 7 and 8 is 160 mil (0.16"), not an even multiple of the 100 mil spacing of the other pins.

Q. Does the arduino uno come with any accessories (e.g. a usb cable, headers, LEDs, etc...)?
A. The product does not include a USB cable. The product code for the USB cable is 19-8660. The product features headers and an integral LED. If you are looking for something with more options for development, we have a new kit, product code 73-4460. This kit includes a USB cable and other accessories.
Easy entry to microprocessor programming

If your looking to enhance your hobby electronics with microprocessor control, the Arduino is a fine choice. Beautifully made and easy to connect, it provides all the basic functions needed to start learning about software control. The board can be powered directly from your computer USB, for programming and testing simple low current circuits, or powered from your project for more complex work. The Arduino open source community provides all the software and learning instructions you need, completely free of charge, and help is available via the forum for those extra questions.
While other microprocessor environments may be more powerful for the very experienced user, the Arduino is more than capable for most tasks and the available support makes it an ideal starting point to learn about microprocessors.
