    very cool product. although i got mine to overheat. when this happens the blue and the green led blink constantly and the code stops running. i'm powering it with a 9V batt. using the VIN pin. if i blow air to it, the overheating goes away and the code comes back alive. if i stop blowing air, the led.s come back on and the code stops. i've ordered couple ...

    official arduino pro mini's come in 4 flavors, this is NONE of them: 3.3V 8mhz ATMega168 3.3V 8mhz ATMega328 5V 16mhz ATMega168 5V 16mhz ATMega328 this one is ... strangely enough a 3.3v 16MHZ ATMega328 so... it basically is the 5v 16MHZ ATMega328, but then with a 3.3v voltage regulator soldered on the board .. If you set like 5V to 12V power to the ... Read more

    Pros: A Funduino product with 100% Arduino compatibility. It's working easily. Can Work together with [CP2102 USB to TTL STC] for program uploading and port monitoring. It's compact size can fit into many toy. Pinout map is available from internet. Cons: Pins labels are not very clear, you would need a pinout map for correct connections. Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day Pros: Cheap! Probably the cheapest Arduino Pro Mini here. Nice blue power-on LED (previous batch was green). Voltage is 3.3V, which is great for interfacing some newer low-voltage hardware. Cons: Product name says that this is 5V, but actually it's 3.3V. I really wish the ... Read more

    100% Arduino compatible board. It includes two male pin header strips that you can solder or not, depending on your needs. Quality seems good enough. It works directly from the box. Easy to program and use. No cons at all. Don't forget to buy a FTDI USB adapter to be able to program this board. It works flawlessly with the official Arduino IDE software.... Read more

    It's a very cheap microcontrolled that can be programmed using standard Arduino software, with a huge amount of possibilities to interface with the real world You need an special cable USB to RS232 TTL level adapter / converter. Yo can find it in dx.com and it's also cheap, but it's an extra cost. At least you only need a single cable for all Programming ... Read more

    Cheap enough, small, powerfull, do what it says... in a word, a very good product for DIY projects. Headers came already soldered, not like in the presentation photo. The price could be better. There are better prices on the online market. I used this product with SKU: 149859 on Win7 OS, and they work toghether without problems. After spending some ... Read more

    When it arrived it was well packed in an ESD bag and pins were well protected with foam. I programmed it using an USB to UART converter (Cytron UC00B) and it functioned right away. The header pin layout makes it great for building a prototype circuit on a breadboard. None that I can think of. Be aware to buy the right programming cable/board. First ... Read more

    Cheap, small and very affordable. I power it with a 9V battery. The board has no USB connector, so you'll need an USB programmer. This board is intended for semi-professional use. Pin headers are breadboard compatible. It arrived with headers (pins) already mounted to the PCB. Which is nice if you want to use it on a breadboard. Now I've soldered all ... Read more

    Very easy to use when you get over the pin markings; I got SKU265730 to download the software I have been developing with UNO and everything works similarly. The TTL pin markings are quite confusing. asgar5 has a good picture in his review so check that or look at the official Arduino Pro Mini schematics. I am using SKU265730 to program these and with ...
