We expanded our Aruduino lineup with Sparkfun's "Arduino Pro Mini" It's blue! It's skinny! It's the Arduino Pro! SparkFun's minimal design approach to Arduino. This is a 3.3V Arduino running the 8MHz bootloader (select 'Arduino Duemilanove w/ 328' within the Arduino software). The power switch was moved to the side of the board (good idea Limor!) to allow control when a shield is attached. This board does not work with the 5V Arduino shields but does work nicely with our prototyping shield.
The Arduino Pro does not come with the connectors populated so that you can solder in any connector or wire with any orientation you need for your exact project. We recomend first time Arduino users start with the Arduino Duemilanove
It's a great board that will get you up and running quickly. The Arduino Pro series is meant for users that understand the limitations of the 3.3V system voltage, lack of connectors and no USB on board.
The Arduino Pro is designed for low profile use and is recommended to be powered with a LiPO battery for great portability as well. If you need regular DC power a standard jack can be soldered onto the unpopulated pads.
This board connects directly to the FTDI Basic Breakout board
for sketch uploading (supports auto-reset) and can be used with a standard FTDI cable but without auto reset.
ATmega328 running at 8MHz external resonator
Low-voltage board needs no interfacing circuitry to popular 3.3V devices and modules (GPS, Accelerometers, sensors, etc)
USB connection off board
Reverse polarity protected
DC input 3.3V up to 12V
Resettable fuse prevents damage to board in case of short
Power select switch acts as on/off switch
