This is a 5V Arduino Uno compatible board, with a 16 MHz Atmel Mega 328P processor with a CH340G USB driver. This includes the USB programming lead.
With its small size and simple programming, it’s ideal for the small home projects, capable enough to be used in more complex situations, yet cheap enough to use almost anywhere. It can be used with sensors or displays that use SPI, I2C or Serial communications, as well as simple switches or LED’s, and is fully supported by the Arduino IDE (although additional drivers are needed for the USB interface – see below).
|Size||78mm x 53mm x 15mm|
|Input Voltage||7-9V recommended (or USB)|
|Digital Input/Outputs||14 (6 PWM capable – 3,5,6,9,10 and 11)|
|Analog Inputs||6 x 10-bit resolution inputs|
|Maximum output current||40mA per pin, 200mA total.|
|USB||USB Type B with CH340G interface.|
|Flash Memory||32 Kb (2KB is used by the bootloader)|
Drivers are required for the USB interface on both Windows and OSX (linux systems should not require anything).
The USB to serial chip used is a CH340G, a commonly used device. Drivers for this chip are freely available online.
Ebay does not allow us to include links to documentation or drivers on our listings, but searching for “CH340G USB driver” should lead to suitable drivers.
A driver should not be required on Linux systems.
