Let me guess it's Christmas and you've got a bunch of these you want to unload?  Good luck!

Happy Trails,

I built one for my AVR dragon for about $10US - doesn't have those bells and whistles, but it works :) . Assuming the 'Atmel AVR Fundamental DevKit' works - not a bad price for 35$ if you are lazy and dont want to build one.

I like the Ziff socket and having current limiting resistors on all the I/O lines......the resistors are good insurance for beginners...

DESCRIPTION:

This is a perfect development board for those who want to learn embedded systems and component level electronics. No need to worry about an operating system on top of your code. The chip is completely blank and will not run a single line of code unless you want it to. The chip will do exactly what you tell it to do… nothing more and nothing less.

This development board is completely open-source. The full design schematic will be supplied for reference.

I don't think it's really "open-source" if you don't get to see the schematics til after you've bought it?

 

Quote:
This board is designed specifically for assembly language development.

How can a board be "designed specifically for assembly language development" ?

 

Quote:
... Most real-time systems are developed in assembly

No, I don't think that's true.

 

Quote:
Learning to program in the native assembly language of the chip will make a better embedded engineer.

That argument has and will continue to run & run...

 

Quote:
NOTE: This is not a programmer, must be purchased separately.

Come on, guys; we're into the 2nd decade of the 21st century now: an on-board debugger - not just a programmer - is de rigueur!

You put the copper traces in the wrong place.    (and don't reveal the schematic until after you get the money)

I was going to order 2 from the Atmel Store until I saw that the total including standard shipping from Malaysia to the US came to $43.08.  The shipping cost was more than the cost of the boards.

 

Mouser has them for $12.60 each and $4.99 USPS economy shipping.  Future has them for less but hell may freeze over before you receive them.

 

Here is a link to distributers that offer them:  http://www.findchips.com/search/atmega328p-xmini?gclid=CPKv-tzr0cICFVBqfgodrxIAnw

As far as I can see,   it is seldom worth buying from Atmel Store.    The Shipping is horrendous.

 

Many of the Atmel products are available at your local distributors.    Of course,  they may have a minimum order value to qualify for free shipping.
