Elektor.TV | A How-To Guide for Platino

July 23, 2015 | 15:02
The Platino board is already a classic at our lab. However, to some people it’s still not very clear what this versatile board is capable of and how it can best be configured according to the application. We hope this tour will help dispeling any doubts!

The name Platino is a playful reference to the French (and German) word ‘Platine’ meaning ‘circuit board’, with a slight wink at ‘Arduino’. It is a versatile circuit board for circuits based on an 8-bit AVR controller. With an ATmega168 or ATMega324 Platino can play the lead role in a large number of sketches. And for the most demanding builders it has a convincing trump in hand: it can be fitted with an ATmega1284!

Platino: A Versatile Board for AVR MCU Circuits
The goal of this project was to design a PCB that would be useful for many applications based on Atmel's ATmega MCUs that may need an LCD and/or push-buttons and that can be easily programmed using WinAVR, AVR studio, BASCOM, Mikro-C or Arduino.
