Building an arduino

Hi,

I just found out about arduinos, and decided I want to build my own, instead of buying one. Is there anywhere I can get help/building instructions past the circuit diagrams? If anybody could let me know, That would be great. ;D

The easiest fully "do it yourself" Arduino is the Severino

It is a serial version, with single sided board.

But you can find more docs about other versions in

(they're harder to do yourself because of the double sided board)

Or you can buy kits (so you can only solder the components), if you don't want to make the board yourself.

Note sure if you want a kit or just components and a breadboard, or what.

If you want a kit and board to solder, I built the Modern Device BB kit and really enjoyed it.

If you don't want a board, then there's these:

Five years ago or so (pre-arduino days for me) I built mega32 circuits from scratch and programmed with atmel programmer. I thought it a good learning experience. Very few parts are really needed.

All things considered, I think I would recommend the already assembled USB Diecimila though (plus patience, aspirin, and a good C book).

Good luck.

Thanks for your replies, I think I might make the severino :slight_smile:
