The Hobbyduino Mini allows for shields (or plugs as I call them) to be attached in somewhat the same way as the Arduino. As such, I would like to present one of the first shields developed for the Hobbyduino Mini called the Hobbyduino Mini boot-loader ISP Plug. This plug (or shield if you like) can… Read More ›
I have uploaded some pictures to the gallery of version 3 of the Hobbyduino Mini. There have been some subtle design changes based on the recommendations of a fellow robot builder from Let’s Make Robots forum. Go here and check out the 3rd revision of the Hobbyduino Mini.

The board design allows the Hobbyduino Mini to be used on a breadboard by soldering pin headers to the… Read More ›
