The Arduino Nano 3.0 is a surface mount breadboard compatible version of the ever-popular Arduino micro controller. It’s small, has integrated USB, and is breadboard friendly. It has more or less the same functionality of the Arduino Duemilanove, but in a different package. Physically, it’s missing the power jack, but it can still sense and switch to the higher potential source of power. It’s perfect for embedding into your next project.

Be sure to visit the Maker Shed at Maker Faire Bay Area on May 21st & 22nd, 2011. We will have lots of Makers exhibiting all sorts of Arduino projects and more! Can’t make it to San Mateo? Join the Arduino revolution by reading MAKE Volume 25.
