Mega328 Header Kit

It took a while since I first posted about the new ATmega header board but finally, here it is.

The board is great for prototyping on a solderless breadboard. It is compatible with the common 28-pin AVR controllers like ATmega48, ATmega88, ATmega168 and ATmega328. On plus it is Arduino compatible.

Some of the features:

  • Space efficient, occupies only on more row than the controller itself
  • Has no voltage regulator on board, so you choose, at which voltage you want to run it
  • It has SMD resistors and LEDs (size 1206) to make it a great starting point to learn how to hand solder SMD
  • Has a sticker to tell which pin is what. Thanks Tod!
  • Blinks blue!

  1. Hi Alex, first of all the “Mega328 Header Kit” is really a great work, compliments!

    I have some question.
    The header kit is arduino compatible, right? Isn’t it one of the least expensive *duino clone on the market?

    And, do you use Eagle software to design the kit? From the schematic to the double-side pcb?

    Thank you in advance,
    kind regards and cheers from southern Italy ;)


  2. Hi Enrico,
    well, it’s cheap but there are cheaper ones ;)
    For example the Solarbotics Ardweeny.

    And yes, I’m using Eagle CAD for all my designs. It’s cheap and does all things I want.



  3. Hi Philipp,
    ja, klar, die Designs sind Open Source, verlinkt im How-To.
    Viele Grüße,
