New kit! USB Boarduino (& some other stuff)

After much demand, I have finally got a USB-Boarduino kit! This is a little smaller than the Boarduino but has USB built in and a 500mA fuse. It’s pretty much the same as the Boarduino in all other respects – just plug it into a breadboard for ez prototyping. I presolder and test the USB so its easy to assemble

I figure I should also mention the other stuff I added in the shop:

For my UK, European, and Australian customs I’ve added a multi-country 9V adapter, available with the ever-popular Arduino starter packs

Stacky headers! They are just like every-day 0.1″ headers but the legs are extra long.


These are very useful for stacking Arduino shields!




A USB to serial converter…some people have been having trouble getting a converter that works well with the minipov3 so I have found one that I’ve tested and works well. This one plugs right into a USB port or comes with a USB extender cable.
