Description: It’s blue! It’s thin! It’s the Pro Mini! This is a 5V board running the 16MHz bootloader. Pro Mini does not come with connectors populated so that you can solder in any connector or wire with any orientation you need. We recommend first time users start with the Arduino® Uno R3. It’s a great board that will get you up and running quickly. The Pro series is meant for users that understand the limitations of system voltage (5V), lack of connectors, and USB off board.

Pro Mini is made with all SMD components on two layers of PCB. This board connects directly to the FTDI Basic Breakout board and supports auto-reset. The Pro Mini also works with the FTDI cable but the FTDI cable does not bring out the DTR pin so the auto-reset feature will not work. There is a voltage regulator on board so it can accept voltage up to 12VDC. If you’re supplying unregulated power to the board, be sure to connect to the “RAW” pin and not VCC.

Dimensions: 0.7x1.3" (18x33mm)

Features:

  • This board is a generic variant, built from the open source design. It is a compatible replacement for the official Arduino® Pro Mini, however, we recommend and guarantee that only the official variant will work with all Arduino® educational resources wherever it is referenced. Buying official also supports the creators and their future innovations.
  • ATmega328 running at 16MHz with external resonator (0.5% tolerance)
  • 0.8mm Thin PCB
  • USB connection off board
  • Supports auto-reset
  • 5V regulator
  • Max 150mA output
  • Over current protected
  • Weighs less than 2 grams!
  • DC input 5V up to 12V
  • On board Power and Status LEDs
  • Analog Pins: 8
  • Digital I/Os: 14

  • Coffee Grinder With Arduino
  • Using a few bits and pieces, this ordinary coffee grinder now has two presets to run the motor for a programmable length of time. The idea being that the grinder running for a set amount of time will deliver a certain amount of coffee each button press meaning the beans can be stored unground, keeping them fresher for longer. I completed this project for a friend, Ian, who lives for coffee. Ian wanted the same functionality in h...
  • My ghostbusters proton pack
  • Hi all. Thought I'd share with you my modded Spirit Halloween proton pack. It's about 80% scale, which is plenty big enough for my 7-year-old son, and still looks decently sized on adults. As soon as I learned of this pack, 5-year-old me just had to get one. And I had just gotten my Arduino beginners kit a week earlier. I knew what had to be done :)...
  • Handheld UV Meter
  • UV is important to reptiles (and people) in processing vitamin D3 which is needed to absorb calcium. Without it reptiles often suffer from Metabolic Bone Disease (MBD) which leads to weak bones and can be fatal. Thankfully, pet shops have the answer, UV producing globes which can stave off the dreaded MBD. These are in the form of T8 florescent tubes or compact florescent globes and go for $50+ each. And, yeah, they need to be re...

    Great price and it does everything it is supposed to. But I had to hunt around to find a pinout diagram which explained the alternative pins e.g. SCL, SDA (Posted on 2/12/2014)
