Arduino UNO Mini Review. Special Edition For Fun And Learning.
Atmega328 is the heart of the Arduino Pro Mini microcontroller board. There are 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a resonator on the board, a reset button, and mounting holes for pin headers. In order to provide USB power and communication to a breakout board, a six-pin header can be connected to an FTDI cable breakout board.
As a semi-permanent installation, the Arduino Pro Mini is intended for use in exhibitions or objects. There are no pre-mounted headers on the board, allowing you to use a variety of connector types or solder the wires directly to the board. There are no differences between the pin layout of the Arduino Mini and the Arduino Nano. It is possible to program the Arduino Pro Mini using the Arduino IDE, which comes with a wealth of tutorials to assist beginners in learning and developing their programming and hardware skills.
Due to the fact that the Arduino pro mini is designed to be semi-permanently installed within your projects, it does not come with a USB or USB to serial interface onboard. Using a USB to Serial converter will allow you to connect your pro mini to your computer so that you can program the device. Upon completing the programming process, you may remove the programmer and connect the power directly to the board via the Vin and Ground pins of the FT232RL USB to Serial Converter.
The Arduino Uno Mini was created to celebrate the popularity of Arduino’s most popular board, the Uno! This board is just as capable as the full-sized Uno and features the same ATMega328 microcontroller. It is a great memento for those of us who are passionate about the product.
This board features 14 digital pins and six analog pins in addition to the classic microcontroller. It uses 5V logic and has six PWM pins, too! The main difference between the two is the use of a USB Type C connector as opposed to the classic USB Type B connector. A hand-written letter from the founders is included with each item, as well as a unique and numbered PCB.
Summary Of Features And Benefits
- A special edition of the Arduino UNO board, the Arduino UNO Mini, is available for collectors, Arduino enthusiasts, and microcontroller enthusiasts to commemorate the 16th anniversary of the Arduino UNO board.
- The Arduino UNO is a sleeker, more elegant alternative to the bestseller Arduino UNO (34.20mm x 26.70mm). As a distinctive design, this Arduino board differs from the classic version with its black finish, contrasting gold elements, and new packaging, making it a perfect gift for Arduino enthusiasts.
- AVR RISC based ATmega328P processor running at 16MHz powers the board. Flash for your projects, 1KB EEPROM which will not be erased when the board is turned off, 2 SPI interfaces, 14 digital I/O pins (6 of which can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, and USB-C connector for powering and programming.
- The board is an excellent tool for rapid prototyping, with all the advantages of a classic Arduino UNO, one of the most widely used and documented boards in the world.
