ATmega328P-PU

ATmega328P-PU is commonly used in many projects where a simple, low-powered, low-cost micro-controller is needed. It is designed for use in industrial automation and home and building automation.

Seriously, why are these Microcontroller units (MCUs) so affordable? If you search the internet, you’ll notice that the modern version of the design dates to the 1980s. However, these things will help you in moving from an Arduino Prototype into an actual PCB.

If you are building your own Arduino you will need to burn the bootloader. You may also have a malfunctioning bootloader and need to reinstall the bootloader.

 

 

 

 

 

NHduino UNO R3

The NHduino UNO R3 ATmega328P CH340 Mini USB Board is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328P (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 12 MHz crystal resonator, a mini USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a mini USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.

The NHduino Uno can be programmed with the Arduino Software IDE. Select “Arduino/Genuino Uno” from the Tools > Board menu and “COM x” from the Tools > Port menu. Built-in Examples demonstrate all basic Arduino commands.

The Raspberry Pi 3 doesn’t have a power switch, which means you have to remember to actually properly shut it down every time you want to turn it off. Some owners reported the Pi 3 heated up to the point where it reduced its speed in order to keep its temperature in check.
