Atmel upgrades Xplained Mini dev kit

Atmel has introduced an upgraded Xplained Mini development kit at Embedded World 2014 in Nuremberg, Germany. 

The versatile board offers both devs and Makers extensive examples and a flexible approach to help accelerate the design process.


“The Xplained Mini board supports low pin-count devices, includes an on-board debugger, along with example software projects,” an Atmel engineering rep told Bits & Pieces.

 “The new board is automatically detected by Atmel Studio and is extremely flexible with a large prototyping area for access to all MCU signals and an optional Arduino connector for extensibility.”


The board – which is based on Atmel’s 8-bit Mega168 device – will be available at the end of April via the official Atmel Store.
