The open source Croduino Basic – currently selling for $21 on Tindie – is built around Atmel’s wildly popular ATmega328 microcontroller (MCU).
Aside from Atmel’s MCU, the board targets both Makers and developers with a wide range of features, including:
- 14 digital I/O (6PWM outputs)
- 8 analog inputs
- FTDI RS232 as USB converter
- Built-in 5V voltage regulator
- USB mini-B cable
It should be noted that Croduino measures just 5cm x 3cm, making it easy for DIY tinkerers to integrate into various projects.
