Assembling Arduino Clone Kit $9

The RBBB from Modern Device Company is a wonderful little Arduino clone. If you have a Arduino project requiring a small footprint or an inexpensive dedicated board, this is a great solution.

I discovered the RBBB while looking for a cheaper alternative to the official Arduino board I used in developing my Northern Lights Indicator. On sale, buying 5 kits, these came out to about $9 each. That is a huge savings over the $35 Arduino Diecimila.

Here are all the parts of the RBBB kit. Included are:
  • 2 10k resistors (Brown, Black, Orange)
  • 2 .1ufd ceramic capacitors
  • 2 47 ufd electrolytic capacitors
  • 1 voltage regulator
  • 1 3mm LED
  • 1 Atmega168 preprogrammed with bootloader
  • 1 16 MHZ ceramic resonator
  • male header pins
  • 6 right-angle male-header pins
  • 1 momentary switch
  • 1 28 pin IC socket
