Breadboard based Arduino compatible (BBAC) micro-controller

.: oomlout : made a breadboard based Arduino compatible (BBAC) micro-controller…

While work continues full steam ahead at .:oomlout:. HQ last week we reached a point where all of our pre-existing projects were on hold. We were either waiting on packages to arrive or searching for the much more elusive delivery of inspiration. To deal with this we, of course, started a new project.

What is it?

Its a Breadboard Based Arduino Compatible (BBAC). Using a breadboard, layout sheet and pile of components you can have yourself a fun time putting it together (as simple as popping in each component), and when your finished have a completely functional Arduino Compatible board for experimenting with. (a photo with all the parts explained )

Why?

It may have come about as a tool of procrastination, but now finished it has loads of great uses (here are some we thought up). 

  • The simple layout makes understanding (or explaining) how a micro-controller works easy.
  • Comes with loads of wire and a breadboard so you can start experimenting without the need for purchasing additional components.
  • Great for educational settings. (inexpensive enough that you can send everyone home with one at the end).
  • No need to solder (soldering is good fun but does present a slight barrier).
  • Great for permanent installations (prototype on a USB board then throw one of these into the final version)


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
