The PicoDuino – targeted at both Makers and engineers – is an uber-mini development board powered by Atmel’s ATtiny85 microcontroller (MCU).
“With the ability to use the familiar Arduino IDE (Digispark version is highly recommended), the PicoDuino is a great way to jump into electronics,” Tindie vendor bobricius explained in a product post.
Aside from the MCU, key board specs include:
- Support for the Arduino IDE 1.0 and later (OS X, Windows, and Linux)
- Built-in USB
- 5 I/O pins (two are used for USB only if program actively communicates over USB)
- 8 KB flash memory (about 6 KB after bootloader)
- I2C and SPI (vis USI)
- PWM on three pins (more possible with software PWM)
- ADC on 4 pins
- Internal temperature sensor
- On-board RGB LED
- Keyboard and HID device emulation
- Programmable via USBASP
- 12×22 mm
- Smart pinout
- Partially breadboard compatible
- Supports four types of USB connector 0 PCB, USB-A, MiniUSB and MicroUSB
- Optional Power LED (full model only)
- Optional Reset button (full model only)
