Business card AVR breakout boards: Version 1.1

Card version 1.1

We’ve just released a new version of our super-handy business card sized target board for programming 28-pin AVR microcontrollers like the ATmega168 and ATmega328. These are just the thing for programming these chips through an ISP programmer like the USBtinyISP.

We use these for a lot of our simple microcontroller projects; Tennis For Two and the Lissajous POV come to mind. The new version has basically the same design but adds some extra prototyping area and makes the holes big enough to accept a ZIF socket:

Like the original version of this target board, this circuit board is a fully open source hardware design. For much more information– including the detailed design files– please see the update that we’ve added to the end of our original article about this project.

  1. Major props! I ordered my kit Saturday morning and it showed up yesterday (Monday)! I don’t know how you managed to put this kit out for less then I could buy a ZIF socket alone. (yes, I’d been pricing them) Evil Mad Scientists FTW!

  2. I’m planning to buy one or more of these great boards. I have a lot of ‘mega8s lying around, so I want to know if if it supports them, since it has the same pinout.
