Disassembled arduino! – DIY Microcontrollers Learning Kit Reviews

posted by hfssmb on 04/14/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Perfect if you want to understand more about arduino inner working. This is all you need to assemble your own arduino. This is also useful if you want to implement a project using arduino, you don't need all the components a real arduino has if you don't want to make more modifications in your project.
Cons:
No manual, you must search the internet if want to know how to assemble it. And I think the breadboard is not really necessary.
Other:
You can have complete instructions on how to assemble it here http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-Your-Own-Arduino/
Bottomline:
Cheaper alternative to an assembled arduino. I recommend buying this as your second arduino. Or if you want to implement a fixed project. You may want to get sku104322 in order to help you programming it.
