Steve Smith G0TDJ of ProjectAVR writes: The minDUINO is designed to be easy to assemble, so it is a two layer through-hole design, not SMD. It has headers for FTDI, ISCP and port breakouts. Another project I designed was VAYU-NTX, a High Altitude Balloon Tracker. As expansion for this, I designed two small daughter boards for […]
Dr. Ayman Shalaby over at Electronics Lab has posted an article describing EGYDuino, an Arduino compatible board that can be build using home process: EGYDuino is a DIY Arduino clone made on a single sided PCB board. It’s simple and cheap to build using home PCB fabrication methods and it’s 100% compatible with Arduino.
Mike Szczys writes : Frankly we’re tired of Arduino having a bad name here at Hackaday. So [Brian Benchoff] came up with a way to make it useful to a wider audience. His creation, which we call the HaDuino, lets you use the Arduino clone to open a tasty bottle of beer.
The MHVBoard is an Arduino clone based on the Metaboard. It has a USB connection, but it doesn’t use an FT232R chip or a USB AVR. It uses the V-USB library to bitbang low-speed USB directly from the microcontroller. Via the contact form.
