Product #: MSTIN3

The Mintronics: MintDuino is the newest product in our Mintronics series of kits. It's perfect for anyone interested in learning, or teaching, the fundamentals of how microcontrollers work. Inspired by Tom Igoe's Arduino tutorials, the MintDuino will have you building your very own ATmega based microcontroller from scratch on a breadboard. Afterwards, you can easily program it from almost any computer with an FTDI programmer (not included) and the Arduino IDE (download here). 


Unlike pre-built microcontrollers, the MintDuino demonstrates the specific relationship between the wires, resistors, capacitors, and integrated circuits that enables you to program the microcontroller from your computer. After building the MintDuino, you'll have a much better understanding of how micro controllers work, and how electronics can interact with the physical world.

Please note: An FTDI programmer is required to upload code to the MintDuino. Our FTDI friend is a perfect match!
