Arduino recently updated their small form-factor Arduino Mini and it’s now shipping from the Maker Shed. The Arduino Mini R05 is based on the same ATmega 328 processor as the Arduino Uno, but measures a scant 1.25″x0.73″ making it perfect for breadboards and embedded applications. The R05 update includes a new, smaller chip package and a revised PCB making it possible to fit all the components on the top of the board. It also features a reset button which was lacking in previous versions. Like the earlier models, the Mini R05 requires the use of an FTDI breakout such as the FTDI Friend for programming.
- Microcontroller – ATmega328
- Operating Voltage – 5V
- Input Voltage – 7-9 V
- Digital I/O Pins – 14 (of which 6 provide PWM output)
- Analog Input Pins – 8 (of which 4 are broken out onto pins)
- DC Current per I/O Pin – 40 mA
- Flash Memory – 32 KB (of which 2 KB used by bootloader)
- SRAM – 2 KB
- EEPROM – 1 KB
- Clock Speed – 16 MHz

The link for the FTDI Friend is bust-a-makated, it’s going to http://blog.makezine.com/2012/11/01/new-in-the-maker-shed-arduino-mini-r05/www.makershed.com/product-p/mkad22.htm&Click=37845
Should be un-bust-a-makated now. Thanks for pointing that out!
Unfortunately, now the other links don’t work.
Ever just have one of those days? Should be all better now. Hopefully!
[…] the Arduino Mini R05 which is now available in the Maker Shed. Not only is it petite and highly functional it is cute as well. A great Arduino for small […]
