Adafruit METRO 328 with Headers – ATmega328

Adafruit METRO 328 with Headers – ATmega328


In stock


Scheda con microcontrollore ATmega328, alimentabile tramite USB o DC jack a 7-9V (dotato di interruttore on/off). Presenta 20 pin GPIO, 6 possono essere usati come input analogici e 6 come output PWM. Dispone di porte hardware per SPI, I2C e UART. Velocità di clock 16MHz. Il livello logico delle porte GPIO è 5V, ma è facilmente convertibile tagliando e saldando un jumper. Dotata di un convertitore USB- seriale FTDI che consente di utilizzare un monitor seriale dal proprio PC per inviare e ricevere dati e di programmare l?ATmega tramite USB, grazie al bootloader Optiboot precaricato. Sono presenti 4 LED, uno per l?accensione, due sui canali RX/TX per l?UART e uno sul pin digital 13 (PB5). Versione con headers, ne abbiamo anche con headers da saldare.

We sure love the ATmega328 here at Adafruit, and we use them a lot for our own projects. The processor has plenty of GPIO, Analog inputs, hardware UART SPI and I2C, timers and PWM galore – just enough for most simple projects. When we need to go small, we use a Pro Trinket 3V or 5V, but when size isn't as much of a concern, and an USB-serial converter is required, we reach for an Adafruit METRO.

This is the Adafruit METRO with headers.  It comes with headers soldered on.  It's a fully assembled and tested board with SMT headers attached as well as through hole headers.  If you don't want a Metro with through-hole headers or at least, holes for them, but not attached for super-slimness, check out our Metro without Headers.

METRO is the culmination of years of playing with AVRs: we wanted to make a development board that is easy to use and is hacker friendly. At the heart is an ATmega328P, with 32KB of flash and 2KB of RAM, running at 16 MHz

Power the METRO with 7-9V polarity protected DC or the micro USB connector to any 5V USB source. The 2.1mm DC jack has an on/off switch next to it so you can turn off your setup easily. The METRO will automagically switch between USB and DC.
METRO has 19 GPIO pins, 6 of which are Analog in as well, and 2 of which are reserved for the USB-serial converter. There's also 6 PWMs available on 3 timers (1 x 16-bit, 2 x 8-bit). There's a hardware SPI port, hardware I2C port and hardware UART to USB. Logic level is 5V but by cutting and soldering closed a jumper, you can easily convert it to 3.3V logic
USB to Serial converter, there's a hardware USB to Serial converter that can be used by any computer to listen/send data to the METRO, and can also be used to launch and update code via the bootloader
Four indicator LEDs, on the front edge of the PCB, for easy debugging. One green power LED, two RX/TX LEDs for the UART, and a red LED connected to pin PB5
Easy reprogramming, comes pre-loaded with the Optiboot bootloader, which is supported by avrdude and only uses 512 bytes.
Works with all Adafruit shields!

We also include 4 rubber bumpers to keep it from slipping off your desk. Metro shown with our 12x capacitive touch shield attached just to demonstrate the headers, but that shield is not included!
