Arduino Project Board
Here are some basic instructions for assembling it and getting started.
Step 1: Go get stuff:
(x1) Arduino Project Board PCB (or you can make your own with ProjectBoard.pcb)
(x1) Bootloaded ATMEGA328 chip
(x1) 28-pin socket
(x1) 16 mhz crystal
(x2) 22pF capacitors
(x1) 0.1uF, 25V capacitor
(x1) 10uF – 47uF, 25V capacitor
(x1) 1K, 1/4 watt resistor
(x1) tactile switch
(x1) 7805 regulator
(x1) 9V battery clip
Step 2: Resistor
Don’t forget to clip away the excess leads from the back side of the board.
Step 5: Switch it up
Solder it in place.
Step 7: Socket to me
Solder all 28 pins in place.
Step 8: Electrolytic Capacitor
Don’t forget to make sure the “-” stripe on the capacitor is opposite from the + label on the board.
Step 9: Regulate
The metal plate on the back of the regulator should be on the side opposite of the capacitors.
Step 10: 9V Connector
Step 11: Test LED (optional)
I suggest that you don’t do this if you don’t have to and only add the parts you need for your project.
Anyhow… in this example the LED is connected to Pin 12 (Digital Pin 6) and then to ground through a 220 ohm resistor.
Step 12: Program and transfer
Here is the blink code for the LED example shown in Step 11:
Step 13: Power!
Plug in a 9V battery and it should be good to go.
