Arduino based kit (SADET) is a hardware toolkit for testing embedded software of various designs. It includes multiple inputs and outputs components that can be adapted for different test purposes. In this work, we look at Arduino Nano as a design platform for embedded systems and embedded software courses and explore the possibility of it being suitable for teaching Information Technology students embedded courses. SADET is a project based kit that not only introduces embedded systems and its interaction with embedded software but also give easy access to the complex nature of a micro-controller. It provides a flexible inexpensive interface with its core component as the Arduino Nano that has the ability to accept multiple inputs and indicates output through multiple outputs according to the running loaded embedded software. SADET is built with eight input terminals and five output terminals using three different prototype circuits for the purpose of it to be used as a teaching aid for embedded systems and embedded software lectures. Regardless of it being built from three prototype circuits, its multiple inputs and outputs allows it to be used to test the operation of limitless number of circuit prototypes by loading and running prototype software of choice. This reduces the need to build different circuits for lecture purposes.
