Mr_Wow

I will build custom microcontrollers around what features are most voted for. The finished products will be sold so make sure you select which extra features you would most like it to have.

You are going to produce microcontrollers? That's a big investment  $) Or are you going to produce Arduino like boards with ATmega microcontrollers? Maybe a board with Xbee and a H-brigde is an idea, would be popular for robots.

Mr_Wow

boards with ATmega or microchip microcontrollers. Sorry for confusion

Udo Klein

I can build custom boards. The answer is always dependent on the usecase. I wonder how you come to the conclusion that you can make any money that way.

At the moment, my dream arduino would be identical to the Arduino Uno R3, but would have a dadgum jumper (or microswitch) on the auto reset instead of a trace you have to cut to disable reset and solder pads you have to join to turn reset back on.

Would this work?

Not an UNO, though...
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

@udo

come on... let him have his fun. I do believe that more arduinos to choose from is always a better thing... :-)

I am currently building my dream arduino myself :-)

So am I ;I

But this guy is going to build other people's dreams? Where is the fun in that?

Try a small electrolytic capacitor from the reset pin to ground. Value not terribly critical, 10µF - 47µF. 10µF works for me.

this is what I need:
a pet engineer, who I can keep at home, so I can stop bugging all the knowledgeable people of this forum with my inane questions.

Do you know of any good/cheap/easy to deal with companies in Germany which do PCB fabrication for people like us?

one with a power switch... which is why I made my own with a simple toggle switch

Forget about that. Unless you need it quickly and have quasi unlimited funds.

For the price you'd pay for a single 160x100mm prototype board you can get a lot more from the many Chinese manufacturers and have it fedex-ed to your door within one week.
• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!

I would want software support for integers with more than 32 bits.

This is going to be very usefull!

Build them yourself!

I can go from concept to using it in a couple of hours. I rarely breadboard stuff now. It is cheap enough to make boards. You can spend quite a bit like I did but you don't need to. There are methods for laser printing onto magazine paper then ironing it onto a copper board, remove paper leaving toner in place and then etch in cat litter tray. I don't know the specifics as I have a three tank commercial setup but I know people that use this method and it works.
