Mouser has been selling Arduinos for a while now, but more recently (via adafruit), there is a nicely positive press release:
http://www.electropages.com/2011/02/mouser-single-board-computing-solution-comes-with-a-100000-user-design-community/

Also, Mouser seems to have DIP ATmega328P ICs in stock.  For now.

Not this week!

I waffle between the 84 and the 85.  The one big pain with the 85 is having most of the pins tied to an ICSP during programming (I need one of your boards!).  In all other regards, the 85 is usually my favorite.

The last time I went shopping for DIP 84s I could not find any.  Lots and lots of 85s but no 84s.  DigiKey listed the 84 DIP as discontinued.  So, now that Mouser has some in stock, the 84 is my favorite tiny!

I'm working on them. Got the mega328 control processor working as an Arduino clone and half the monitor and UI code written. Next step is to add the tiny861 and MUX. I didn't do any protyping just went straight to a PCB so I hope I haven't shot myself in the foot smiley

I have had one stuffup, I tied the FTDI chip's RST line to GND. Doh!

Uh oh.  Did you discover the mistake before or after applying power?

After, but no harm done. It just wouldn't respond to USB because the chip was constantly reset.

I hate bringing up a new board and staring and chips wondering why the heck they don't work. smiley-sad
