2. Required Hardware

3. Building Circuit

4. Programming 1 – Playing a beep sound.

5. Programming 2 – Playing a song:

 6. Output:

  1. Introduction:
    • This tutorial of EngineersGallery explains how to use a Peizo Buzzer on Arduino. When voltages are supplied to its terminal it generates beep sound. This buzzer is used to give beep sound to various embedded systems.
    • Buzzers can be found in alarm devices, computers, timers and confirmation of user input such as a mouse click or keystroke.

      You will also learn how to use tone() and noTone() function.

      So, let’s get started!

  2. Required Hardware or What you will need
    1. Arduino Uno Microcontroller Board
    2. Bread Board
    3. Jumper Wire
    4. 9v Battery
    5. 5v Buzzer
    6. 100 Ohm Resistor
  3. Building Circuit
    • Make following circuit with the help of above mentioned components. We have included two examples here both of them use the following circuit.
