chmod775 designed this compact, standalone board to be programmed with a simple visual language:
Focus born with the purpose of making a prototype board that simplify every aspect of programming.
Spent the last hour writing down the main concept of the Visual Programming Language for the Focus! It’s just a simple sketch, but I wanted to share it with you the main reason why I’m building it.
Clovis Fritzen designed this Arduino-compatible, vertically-mountable board that exclusively uses through-hole components:
I personally love the concept of electronic boards connected in “slots” (vertically attached to a horizontal board), like most industrial-grade PLC’s or even our desktop’s expansion cards (video, sound memory): it saves a lot of space and adds more functions to the system, all at once!
The PCB is for sale on Tindie:
Vertically mountable Arduino – PCB only
This is an Arduno-Nano compatible controller that can be vertically mounted to bredboards and boards
OnChip has posted a Crowd Supply update on their plans for Arduino compatibility:
Arduino compatibility can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people, so we’ll try to be as concrete and specific as possible. For the Open-V, Arduino development tools, and interoperating on a hardware level with existing Arduino shields.
We’ve updated our live, web-streamed demos to include an Arduino mode in addition to the assembler and C modes we already have. You might also notice the relatively new Blockly modes and a refined layout of the demo page. Go write some code and see the results live streamed!
Neven Boyanov has launched a new Tinusaur campaign on IndieGoGo:
The Tinusaur is powered by the Atmel ATtiny85 microcontroller.
We want to bring the cost down to $3 for the basic “lite” boards
and allow more people to be able to get them.
Last week we’ve launched our Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign and, as of a few minutes ago, we’ve reached 1/3-rd of our goal already. In case you’re not familiar what the Tinusaur project is about … A small board with a tiny chip on it that comes as an assembly kit – a small package with parts and you […]

Cypress’s FX2LP (CY7C6801x) is one of the smallest footprint MCUs that offer a high-speed USB (480 Mbit/s) device peripheral with built-in PHY (many others lack the PHY!). It contains a 8051 core for bookkeeping and setting up data streams through its hardware multiplexed parallel FIFO interface to/from an external processor, be it MCU, DSP, or FPGA/CPLD.
This is a breadboard-friendly minimal system PCB for CY7C68013 in QFN56 package. It integrates 3.3 V power supply, core clock, reset circuit/button, and I2C EEPROM (the MCU does not have built-in flash). It breaks out all IO pins through 2 rows x 20 pins 0.1″ pitch headers with 0.7″ row spacing.
summivox has shared the board on OSH Park:
DanR has shared this motion sensing night light board:
This light is powered by an ATtiny45/85 which powers on the 14 LED lights when motion is sensed and it is in a dark room. The light sensor on the board will not allow the lights to come on if it is in a reasonably lit room.
It is fitted with a barrel plug for power, this model specifically with an L7805CV voltage regulator.
