    990.110 1000Pads Luigino

    Here it is the 1000Pads Luigino. A basic board, available in kit or assembled or bare board. Small, simple, reliable, easy, practical!

    Same form factor of our 1000Pads System: you can easily add RS485, XBee, USB, Proto Boards, etc to the Luigino!

    Luigino is not a simple Arduino clone, each Luigino project has a special feature, something missing in the Arduino or something to add, or maybe something less of the Arduino, but at a ridicolous price; it is our interpretation of the Arduino project.

    Let's say you have made your last Arduino based project, you have to put everything in a box with pots, switch, LED's and so on ... Why put a precious Arduino board inside a box? Just transfer the program in a 1000Pads Luigino! It's cheaper! Same features!

    Obviously you can also use Luigino for developing, you need a USB to Serial converter like our 990.004 to program the Chip, then unplug the converter and the board is ready to run your application!

    The Power Input selector jumper, selects from On Board Regulator Circuit or from external Voltage, it must be 5VDC regulated, from 50mA to 500mA depending on the devices attached to the board.

    The 1000Pads Luigino is available in 3 versions:

    1. Bare Board - use this pcb for custom project where few components are required, the cheapest solution.
    2. Kit - the Kit version includes the Bare Board and three bags of components, the User have to assemble the board using a soldering iron. Even in this case, you can assemble only the components required by your application, or all the components for a fully functional Arduino compatible board.
    3. Assembled - this is the Kit version, already assembled and tested.

    Note: The ATMega328 MCU in NOT included. The User can buy it separately.

    This board is very easy to assemble, it's even useful for Users that want to make practice with the soldering iron. The bags in the kit are numbered, the values of the components are printed on the board: easy!

    We imagine the assembly in three Levels. These Levels start with the Level 1 that is the essential level, only the basic components needed to make the Microcontroller works. Next levels add more components and feature. You can choose which level best fit your application or you can be inspired by them and make a custom assembly: the 1000Pads Luigino is a versatile board.
