About this project

The Arduino Project Board is a bare bones solution for using Arduino-programmed Atmel chips in finished electronics projects.

Huh? Why?

I make a lot of stuff using the Arduino. It is not practical to include an entire Arduino development board into each finished project that I make since they are big, expensive, and have functionality that I don't need. When I finish a project, the only part of the development board that I really care about is the programmed chip. Fortunately, the standard Arduino is designed with a socket so that after the on-board Atmel chip is programmed, it can be removed.

What this means is that every time that I finish a project, I find myself removing the chip and building a circuit for it on perfboard. Since the circuit is more or less always the same, it would be more convenient to have an easy to assemble printed circuit board for finished projects. The Arduino Project board is just that.

The Arduino Project Board is small, inexpensive, easy to assemble, and perfect for using in finished projects.
