- ATmega328 with the open source Arduino Uno bootloader
- 28Pin Machined IC Socket (round pins) – helps protect pins
- 16mhz Crystal
When programming please select the “Arduino Uno” under Tools>Board in the Arduino™ IDE.
Please be careful to always insert and remove from the breadboard straight up and down. The easiest way to remove from a breadboard is to use a small flat blade screw driver and alternate gently prying up the left and right side so as not to bend the pins. The pins will break/bend if you take it out at an angle. If you do happen to break off one of the pins, all is not lost! This kit comes with a socket attached to the main IC chip, you can remove the socket by carefully using a flat blade screw driver to alternately pry the left and right of the IC chip out of the socket. The IC chip can be used without a socket, it is just slightly more delicate.
