ProtoStack ATmega328 kit review and Arduino clone build

Posted on Monday, November 28th, 2011 in 7400 contest, Arduino by DP

Here is a comprehensive review of the ProtoStack ATmega328 kit that Eric won in the 7400 contest. He was pleasantly surprised that Protostack included an USBasp AVR programer. The review goes into detail on how to build a Arduino clone on this development kit.

I managed to get my 7400 Logic PLL Based Switcher in the third place category of the Dangerous Prototypes Open 7400/4000 Series Logic Contest. Dangerous Prototypes had the neat idea to let the winners pick their own prizes from the many sponsor donated kits & parts; that way everyone gets something they want. I picked out one of the 3x ProtoStack ATmega328 Developments Kits they donated. I’ve been messing around with my Arduino Uno for a while and was looking to expand my Atmel AVR knowledge a bit and thought building up this kit and turning it into an Arduino clone would be a fun project. I figured I’d give a little review of the kit as I went along as well.
