Overclocking Arduino UNO with liquid Nitrogen

Posted on Friday, August 30th, 2013 in Arduino, how-to by the machinegeek


Michail likes to experiment with overclocking processors using liquid Nitrogen. He also like experimenting with MCU dev boards like the Arduino, which led to the question how far can you go overclocking this little Atmel chip? Why, you might ask. “Because I can. To learn how electronics behave at cryogenic temperatures. And just curios how much juice you can squeeze out of AVR if you push hard enough This also produced some results relevant to desktop processors overclocking with liquid Nitrogen cooling.”
