Small is Beautiful: Minimod18

A new microcontroller board for Elektor ATmega projects

Small is Beautiful: Minimod18
Minimod18 is a very compact general-purpose microcontroller module. It includes frequently required peripheral components, such as pushbuttons and an LC display, as well as several interfaces (USB, I²C and ISP/SPI). You only have to assemble the peripheral circuitry necessary for your specific application and connect it to the Minimod18. This way you can build a complete device with entry and display capability in almost no time.

Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
