This site has been great fun, but it has run its course, and it is time to move on. Please get what you want from the site before January 1, 2020. Some pages will move to another site but most will go away.
The Bare Bones Board comes in kit form, assembled, or as a bare board. It is different than most other clones, and even most other breadboardable clones, in that it actually works on a breadboard. All of the pins are on one edge of the board, so you have use of the whole breadboard for prototyping. It even supplies power to the breadboard.
The BBB uses all through-hole parts but one. That part is an SMD inductor, which shouldn't give you any trouble in hand soldering. If you are new to this sort of thing, the Bare Bones Board might be a very good place to start. You can learn a little about what goes into the microcontroller board before you start prototyping circuits using it.
