Arduino Nano: all-in-one design for breadboard use

David MellisMay 15th, 2008

Arduino Nano on a breadboard.

The new Arduino Nano is the smallest and most versatile Arduino board yet. Designed and manufactured by US-based Gravitech, it has all the functionality of an Arduino Diecimila in a compact, breadboard-ready design. The Nano includes an ATmega168 microcontroller (w/ bootloader), integrated USB (FTDI chip) w/ Mini-B jack, a full complement of i/o pins (including two more analog inputs than the Diecimila), an ICSP programming header, and on-board regulator. Measuring 0.73″ x 1.70″, it’s smaller and cheaper than the combination of Arduino Mini and Mini-USB adapter, and you can get started without any wires. We’re excited to be offering this new, breadboard-ready form factor with the integrated convenience of the Arduino Diecimila.

The Arduino Nano is available for pre-order. Order now and get 10% off; boards will ship on the 16th of June.

    I am new to electronics and would like to learn micro controllers. Would this be
    a good board to use to learn on? And what kind of cool things can I make with this?

    [...] if I were getting one today (well, tomorrow’s its release date) I would agonise for hours about whether I should get one of these instead – an arduino nano. v nice. v small, but you can’t remove the chip: http://www.arduino.cc/blog/?p=39 [...]
