Hi All,

I'd like to introduce a new Arduino compatible board, Microduino -- a smaller Arduino, only 1.0 inch x 1.1inch. And it's stackable, every Microduino board can be stacked together through Microduino defined 27 pinout.

I designed the first version of Microduino In November 2012, . The purpose was to build a small device to monitor server room temperature remotely.  I split the Arduino-Uno circuit into two parts: the -Core circuit, functioning as MCU core, and the -FT232R circuit, communicating between PC and -Core.  I stacked the boards together and connected temperature sensor in a standard hole board - BTW, Microduino is compatible with a standard hole board.

That was the very first prototype of Microduino, a very interesting experience. sorry, my soldering skill was not that good...  share my interesting expeirence with you.

I've done similar, for standalone '328s and '1284s, with more ground pins provided if one wanted to populate them:
Parts on both sides of '328, all on one side for '1284.  Off board FTDI interface added if needed


Designing & building electrical circuits for over 25 years.  Screw Shield for Mega/Due/Uno,  Bobuino with ATMega1284P, & other '328P & '1284P creations & offerings at  my website.

Wow, it's very cool! I also designed a 1284 boards, check it here and more in attachment.
it's open source design, you can found my Microduino-Core+ source code here:

hope you like it.
