100% Arduino UNO Compatible

Use the same ports, pins, IDE, libraries, codes… Exactly like how you were using your Arduino UNO.

Very cheap!

Garagino costs only $10 (or even lower depending on the pledge kit). Because the cost is low you can have many Garaginos and use one board for each of your prototypes.

One Module to Program Many Garaginos

Easy to use. Use one serial converter to program as many Garaginos as you like.

Breadboard attachable

Attach your Garaginos directly to the breadboard. Slicker prototypes.

 

Solder it to your PCB

And program it directly there!

Wider voltage range

From 1.8 to 5V. Use 3.3V sensors. No logic level converter needed.

 

Longer headers

The Garagino’s longer headers allows it to be attached to a breadboard, connected with wire jumpers, soldered to a PCB and used with mini-shields (we have developed many of them already)


DIP microcontroller

We used the ATmega328 in the DIP packaging so you can take it out anytime. No rework needed.


Pin 13 LED, Power LED and Reset Button

You will need them.


16MHz Resonator

The same speed you are used to.


Open Source

Garagino is a registered brand but the project is open.


Already being manufactured

Tested and approved by thousands of users.

Risks and challenges

Garagino is already being manufactured in our facility in Brazil, so the chances of any project errors or manufacturing problems are not applicable. The only risk is possible delays due to our supplier. Fortunately, we have already developed a strong partnership with them the last few years. However there are many other suppliers we can eventually count on. In any case, transparency and respect to our backers will be our main priority.
