Description [Hide]

It's blue! It's skinny! It's the Arduino Pro - SparkFun's minimal design approach to Arduino. This is a 5V Arduino running the 16MHz bootloader (select 'Arduino Duemilanove w/ 328' within the Arduino software). The power switch was moved to the side of the board to allow control when a shield is attached. (Please note: The right-angle power switch is fragile.)

If you are new to Arduino, go with the standard Arduino Duemilanove, which is ready to go. The Arduino Pro does not come with connectors populated so that you can solder in any connector or wire with any orientation you need. The Arduino Pro series is meant for advanced users that understand the limitations of system voltage (5V), lack of connectors, and USB off board.

To make the Arduino Pro low profile, the DC power jack footprint is available, but not populated. Try running the board with a LiPo battery for better portability.

To minimize the cost of an Arduino, this unit is like the Arduino Duemilanove (same pin out) but uses all SMD components but does not have the FTDI chip on-board. You can connect to it with the FTDI Basic Breakout board.


  • ATmega328 running at 16MHz external resonator. Select 'Arduino Duemilanove w/ 328' to get the delay functions to work correctly.
  • USB connection off board
  • 5V regulator
  • Max 150mA output
  • Over current protected
  • Reverse polarity protected
  • DC input 5V up to 12V
  • Resettable fuse prevents damage to board in case of short
  • Power select switch acts as on/off switch
