It's Here! Chris Odom's Physical Computing & Robotics with the Arduino IDE - Volume Two!

Piezo Buzzer board


These little boards are a bit tricky to judge. You definitely need to make sure they are right for you. To make that easy, I'll jot down a few pros and cons


  • They are cheap
  • They have a nifty mounting hole that holes a 4-40 screw
  • They are loud
  • They come with the wires

  • The wiring order is odd  Vcc,I/O,Grd. not the normal I/O,Vcc,Gnd 
  • IMPORTANT They need to have matching I/O and Vcc voltage inputs. It won't work if your I/O is 3.3V and you put 5V into Vcc
If you can live with that then it's definitely worth a buck twenty-five.
