Platino is an Arduino compatible universal AVR board that supports 28-pin and 40-pin ATmega devices. Supported are: ATmega8, ATmega16, ATmega32, ATmega88, ATmega164, ATmega168, ATmega324, ATmega328, ATmega644, ATmega1284. Arduino bootloaders are available for all devices. An Arduino board package allows seamless integration of Platino in the Arduino IDE 1.6.6, providing an extensive library that features drivers for the on-board peripherals. Adding a user interface to a project has never been easier.
This is the latest, improved, version of the original board (100892-1) as published in October 2011. This version of Platino adds a 3.3V voltage regulator. The board is fully supported by an Arduino 1.6.6 boards package available from https://github.com/ElektorLabs/150555-Platino/.
IMPORTANT NOTE for the older Platino projects:
Platino boards with a version number of 1.4 or higher have two additional solder jumpers that are not mentioned in projects and articles that were developed with older versions of Platino (version 1.3 or lower). To assure compatibility between the old and new Platino versions JP15 and JP16 must be set to the position ‘D’.
Also Platino 1.4 or higher has an extra 1N5817 diode D1 that must be mounted when the board is powered by an FTDI cable.
A “new” Platino has product number 150555 printed on it, an “old” Platino has the product number 100892.
