On Thursday, June 20, 2019, the IEEE Consultants’ Network of Northern NJ ( will host a presentation on Arduino Fundamentals.

About the Topic

This is an overview of Arduino boards, shields, sensors, Starter Kit, and the Fundamentals certification. It also covers exam concepts from the Starter Kit project book which is aimed at getting you started with building a maker project.

Arduino produces one of the most popular families of open source hardware and software microprocessor kits for students and makers available today. Arduinos are the basis of many maker projects involving robots, kinetic artwork, musical instruments, wearable devices, instruments, weather stations, games, sensors, and many more. The Arduino Education group recently released an Arduino Fundamentals Certification program based on the Arduino Starter Kit projects to certify Arduino user’s skill and expertise.

About the Speaker

Jay Morreale provides electrical engineering, electronic prototyping, modeling, analysis, design, research and development, and networking consulting services through his small business p-brane LLC. Some of his past projects include working with Raspberry PI and wireless energy-harvesting sensors for a smart home challenge, an undersea power and communication junction box for an undersea observatory application, a medium voltage power supply and actuator driver, and adapting Labview software to control a 6 axis alignment robot that integrated an Arduino as a test instrument.

Before consulting, Jay worked at AT&T Bell Laboratories and Lucent Technologies designing undersea telecommunication and optical networking hardware. He co-founded Red Sky Systems which made regional undersea systems. Jay earned a Bachelors and Masters in Electrical Engineering from the University of Arizona. When not consulting, he is developing a graphene-based terahertz light source for communication and spectroscopy applications, which has been awarded two patents. Jay is a Senior Member of the IEEE and the Vice-chair of the IEEE Consultants’ Network of North New Jersey (CNNNJ) and can be reached at
