It’s been a while but we just received a new shipment of Arduino Nanos back in the Maker Shed. What’s an Arduino Nano? It’s a small, breadboard mountable microcontroller with more or less the same functionality of the Arduino UNO. It features onboard USB, an ATmega 328 microprocessor, and has all the pin-outs of a full size Arduino. Physically, it’s missing a power jack but it can be powered using USB, applying regulated 5V to pin 27, or applying unregulated 6-20V to pin 30. Its reduced size makes it perfect for embedding in your projects.

Features

• Automatic reset during program download
• Power OK blue LED
• Green (TX), red (RX) and orange (L) LED
• Auto sensing/switching power input
• Small mini-B USB for programming and serial monitor
• ICSP header for direct program download
• Standard 0.1” spacing DIP (breadboard friendly)
• Manual reset switch

Want to make it shield compatible? Check out the Arduino Nano ProtoShield! It’s perfect for integrating your favorite shields or for a compact prototyping platform.

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I’m a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.

    Wait, is it an UNO, or a Duemilanove? The product page lists it as a Duemilanove.

    I’m waiting on the nano with the new USB interface so i can make it a usb HID device.
