Had Trinket Product V3

Trinket Pro with Black Solder Mask and the Hackaday logo – Hackaday Store.

We are proud to present this limited edition Trinket Pro board. Our friends over at Adafruit Industries offered to commemorate Hackaday’s 10-year anniversary by rolling a black version of the popular tool adorned with the Jolly Wrencher. It’s amazing how they were able to turn around the 585 units in only 2 weeks.

What the heck is a Trinket Pro board? At the core it’s a breakout board for an ATmega328 microcontroller. The board has a micro-USB plug on one end, integrated voltage regulator, 16MHz crystal oscillator, and the chip is running a modified version of V-USB. This means it can be programmed via USB. You have a choice of programming with the Arduino IDE, using AVRdude with the “-c usbtiny” programmer flag, or flashing the chip directly with an AVR programmer (I use the AVR Dragon).

Coming in at under ten bucks makes this a really easy choice for quick builds where space matters. The 1.5″ by 0.7″ board has through-hole plated breakouts for the pins around the edge making it an excellent base for free-formed circuits. The footprints on the back of the board make it simple to connect a battery (5v-15v input) to power your circuit.
