In the Maker Shed: Ardweeny

Ardweeny

Looking to build the smallest, most handy, bread-board friendly Arduino-compatible microcontroller? The Ardweeny from the Maker Shed fits on the back of the included ATmega328, taking up no more valuable breadboard space than the microcontroller itself! Just solder the seven components and pins to the PCB and the Ardweeny is ready to program with your FTDI cable. Perfect for embedded systems where room and weight is at a premium.

    The LED is adorably huge. :) Why not SMT? Very cool though.

      SMT is harder to solder, this is supposed to be an accessibly easy (and very cheap) kit, hence through-hole.

      two resistors, three capacitors, an LED, and what’s that big black box on the left ..is that a switch?

        Yep, it’s a momentary switch. There are only 2 caps, the blue thing is a resonator.

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
