Product Description

This kit contains everything you need to build your very own Uno-Compatible development board! Simply follow the Assembly Guide and after some basic soldering, you’ll have made a fully-functional Arduino-compatible board (in fashionable SparkFun Red). The included ATmega328 comes pre-loaded with the Arduino “Optiboot” bootloader so you don’t have to worry about loading the firmware, simply solder it together, connect an FTDI Basic and load your favorite Arduino sketch!

Note: You will need either an FTDI Basic or FTDI cable to load code.

Kit Includes:

  • 1 x Arduino-Compatible PTH Kit PCB
  • 1 x ATMega328 with Optiboot bootloader
  • 1 x MCP1700 3.3V Voltage Regulator
  • 1 x 5mm Green LED
  • 1 x 5mm Red LED
  • 2 x 330Ohm Resistor
  • 2 x 10kOhm Resistor
  • 1 x 16MHz Crystal
  • 2 x 22pF Ceramic Capacitors
  • 5 x 0.1uF Ceramic Capacitors
  • 2 x 100uF Electrolytic Capacitors
  • 1 x LM7805 5V Regulator
  • 1 x Diode 1N4001
  • 1 x Resettable Fuse PTC
  • 1 x 28-Pin DIP Socket (To seat your ATMega)
  • 1 x Push Button Reset Switch
  • 2 x 6-Pin Female Headers
  • 2 x 8-Pin Female Headers
  • 1 x 6-Pin Right Angle Header (To connect your FTDI Basic)
  • 1 x 0.1uF Capacitor
  • 1 x DC Barrel Jack

This kit doesn’t include the IC anymore, but you can buy it from here.

    it took about 20 minutes to assemble the first one, the documents are perfect (very much like sparkfun read).

    i put a very brief reference to here on my Blog as well,

    Cheers.

    Great for beginners as first solder exercise. Takes about 45 minute s for a beginner to solder – the socket for the CPU prevents it from overheating during soldering. Perfect!

    This is a great beginner project and you end up with a board compatible with the Arduino Uno. Of course you’ll need the processor to go with the kit to complete the build, and an FTDI programmer also sold by ElectroDragon to load in the sketches. (see SKU #DPR1003). The board is extremely well labeled but you can find build instructions on the internet also, although you probably won’t even need them. This makes a great board for use in a project, low cost and high quality.

    Soldering it yourself is more fun than getting one that’s already assembled :)

    A couple of things to note:

    1) this is based on an older Uno design, so it doesn’t have the pins that were added in R3 (IOREF and “Not Connected”). This in combination with the height and placement of the capacitors makes it incompatible with some shields, at least when assembled correctly.

    (I’m going to try building another one with some extra lead on the capacitors so that I can bend them over and out of the way – I’ll report back on whether that was a success or not.)

    2) The assembly instructions came from sparkfun, and in my case, the parts didn’t always exactly match what the instructions called for. Nothing that was too big of a deal, but it could throw off a beginner: some of the capacitors were a slightly different value, and the resistors were the correct value but used 4 bars instead of 3 so you can’t just go with the colors in the instructions.

    Altogether, though, I’m very happy with the result and will probably be picking up a couple more of these.

    very nice board as others have noted needs to change out the caps to a “STUBBY” or shorter ones … works wonderful and makes for a nice 1st time soldering job for beginners
