DC BoArduino

DC BoArduino

Adafruit Industries generally has very well thought out products, and the DC Boarduino is no exception. Think of it as an Arduino Pro, with a DIP ATmega328P, that is nearly the size of the Arduino Pro Mini. The DIP packaged ATmega328P is what sets this thing apart from the other small form factor boards. If you get code running on the breadboard, you can pull the ATmega328 and put it in a project. Plug another ATmgea328 in the socket and start the next project.

The DC BoArduino has a DC power jack, but no USB connector or converter chip. It is programmed using an FTDI USB to TTL serial cable. It also has no 3.3V regulator, but it isn't designed for shields, so it shouldn't be missed.
