This is an serial breakout board, designed to allow the addition of a USB connection to a project. Furthermore this opens up the ability to program microcontrollers such as the Arduino Pro mini. This module allows you to connect up your project, from programming small microcontrollers to a personalised computer keyboard.
Unlike other versions of Arduino, the PRO MINI (3.3 or 5V versions) is designed for advanced users, pin headers come unsoldered and will require programming with an external USB to TTL serial convertor such as this one. No prior knowledge is required to begin, tutorials and small projects exist to help introduce you to the vast features and possibilities that the board series offers. If you require assistance please do not hesitate to contact us using one of the methods below.
The pins are suited to sitting in a prototyping board such as the MB-102 which feature standard sockets with a pin pitch of 2.54mm. The pins are also positioned in the correct order to be connected to the Arduino PRO MINI.
The board has an chipset that may require a driver to be installed, however this is a standard driver that is distributed by Microsoft Windows Update, is not required on Linux and can be configured in MAC OS.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information regarding the module's operation.
