One day, I came across a website, Adafruit when I was looking for small Arduino. Why small Arduino? My first impression of the Arduino Duemilanove was it could be smaller if there was no FTDI (serial-USB converter). In many projects, I found it didn’t need FTDI once sketches were loaded. There are only a handful parts such as crystal and capacitors and resistors around the ATmega328 chip. Of course we need headers for digital and analog pins, but they are not necessarily that big. I like small and compact gadgets. So I searched internet and saw the Boarduino from Adafruit.
So I decided to make my own small and cute Arduino and introduce it here as in my title picture of this blog. I’ll post some pictures and procedure.
