I built this icky baseboard for it with a protoboard. What was missing? Can you tell?
Power and ground rails and a voltage regulator, that's what.
So I made this 'duino clone for Putting In Projects, aka PIPduino:
Is it sacrilege to say that I want an Arduino without shields? Or that I want an I2C port with power rails and pull-up resistors? A combination ISP/SPI port so I can connect to SD cards easily? Digital and Analog pins with power rails?
I wanted an Arduino-compatible board that can be embedded in projects just by making cables and attaching power and sensors/drivers. Now I have one.
What do you think? Would you buy one of these? Should I make more?
