Adafruit Industries – Unique DIY electronics

Adafruit Industries is a small company that sells kits and parts for original, open source hardware electronics projects featured on ladyada as well as other cool open source tronix that I think are interesting and well-made.

Adafruit Industries – Unique DIY electronics

All the projects are redesigned specifically to make it easy for beginners to make: nicely silkscreened circuit boards, through-hole parts whenever possible, extra large solder pads, etc. For some kits, you can purchase just the circuit board. To save paper, the easy-to-follow-with-lotsa-pictures instructions are all available online, at ladyada.net-make.”

Boarduino Kit Adafruit

Atmega328 chip has twice as much storage, runs at 16.00 MHz, just like the latest Arduino. Upload baud rate is 57600, use Arduino IDE v13+. Chip comes preprogrammed with my “no-wait” Arduino bootloader.

  • Designed to plug into a breadboard for easy prototyping
  • Petite size, only 3″ x 0.8″ (75mm x 20mm)
  • All ‘standard’ pins are brought out – Digital 0 thru 13, Analog 0 thru 5, ARef, 5V, Ground, Vin and Reset
  • Chip comes preprogrammed with a “no-wait” Arduino bootloader
  • 2 LEDs, green power and red “pin 13” just like the Arduino Diecimila
  • Available as a low cost kit with standard parts, so its never out of stock
  • All through-hole parts are easy to solder

Boarduino (Arduino Clone) Kit

This clone acts just like an Arduino, and works with the latest Arduino software. For many projects it can even be preferable! The kit includes all parts necessary, the assembly is straightforward and well documented.
