72: DC Boarduino (Arduino compatible) Kit (w/ATmega328) - v1.0


If you've ever struggled to use a solderless breadboard with an Arduino, you understand how frustrating it can be!

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.

Since this design doesn't include a USB chip, you'll want an FTDI USB 232-TTL cable or FTDI friend. Since the cable plugs right into the Boarduino, you can use one cable for multiple Boarduinos.


  • 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

  • 2 LEDs, green power and red "pin 13" just like the Arduino!

  • 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+

  • Standard 2.1mm DC jack (just like the original) with 5V regulator to run on 7V-17V power

  • Auto-reset capability when used with a USB-TTL cable
