Breadboard Buddy R6.2

bbbr62
All Breadboard Buddy R5.2 backorders will be replaced with the new R6.2.

Whats new…
CP2102 replaced with CP2104
RX and TX LED
New Reset Button
New THICKER silk screen, easier to read.

Same old reliable breadboard friendly USB to UART with Reset. Use it to program any MCU with a UART bootloader like PIC, AVR (Arduino), etc… Has built in Reset Button with optional 5v or 3.3v pullup. (selectable on bottom of pcb)

So this is basically to let everyone know that if you backorder the R5.2 you will get this new one instead.

Tiny 0.4in x 0.3in!!!! Yes!!! USB, RESET still included and fits a 0.1in DIP8 connector. Would you believe this was made from more of a I DARE YOU situation. Someone thought i couldnt do it or something… but ive dont it.. Lets see you get smaller than this :)

Atiny85 attempt #2

People seem to want to have this more square and fit in a DIP8 socket. So i say…. ill attempt to make a DIP8 version as tiny as possible with USB, RST, LED, ETC… basically the same schematic. Ill post it by tonight. This is turning out to be very fun and while i do have chores to do and fatherly things to take care of i will make some time for a nice THOROUGH DESIGNED BOARD…

So CHECK BACK TONIGHT (upto 5hr from now) for an update :)

DONE! Check newer POST

My Atiny85 Smallest PCB

The below is old news… CHECK OUT SMALLER VERSION

Take a look. Its just PCB design but should be perfectly fine to make :) 1.27mm headers

The Image on the left is the main MCU its LEVEL 1 on stack (bottom) (has LED also)

The Middle image is USB and Diodes etc.. its LEVEL 2 on stack (middle)

The Last image on right is the RESET BUTTON its LEVEL 3 on stack (TOP MOST) so its easy to press.

AT MAX ITS 0.24in x 0.41in, If i had a Atiny85 id make these PCBs at home instead of ordering from OSHPark as they are so tiny anyway and have about 3 via max … would be easy to make.

ORDER FROM OSHPARK

Smallest yet i believe. Schematic below .. EXACT SAME AS ORIGINAL NANITE
