Platino in Arduino Land
A guide to integrating custom hardware in Arduino IDE
Platino, the ultra versatile AVR board presented in the October 2011 edition is compatible with the Arduino programming environment.

Luckily, most of the bits and bobs you require to do this without too much effort can be found on the Internet for free.
