Adafruit METRO 328 without Headers – ATmega328

Adafruit METRO 328 without 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 senza headers, ne abbiamo anche una con headers già saldati.

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 a USB-serial converter is required, we reach for an Adafruit METRO.

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.

ATmega328 brains – This popular chip has 32KB of flash (1/2 K is reserved for the bootloader), 2KB of RAM, clocked at 16MHz
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 20 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.
GPIO 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.
Beautiful styling by PaintYourDragon and Bruce Yan, in Adafruit Black with gold plated pads.
Works with all Adafruit designed shields!

This version of the METRO 328 comes as a fully assembled and tested development board but without any headers attached. We do include some through-hole headers that you can solder on if you like, or you can solder wires or header directly to the breakout pads. We also include 4 rubber bumpers to keep it from slipping off your desk.

Mac & Windows People! Don't forget to grab & install the FTDI VCP drivers from FTDI to make the COM/Serial port show up right! The default drivers may not support this FTDI chip!
