The whole 'duino thing is just so much to say, we've got to do it three times. Blame Jerome, our intern...

We've got Freeduino version 2.2 back from the assembly line today, and all tests out beeeautifully! New features include an SMD-mounted 16MHz crystal, better power-consumption circuit routing (for battery-operated projects), and "hacking pads" for using the FTDI "Bit-Bang" method of burning bootloaders (instructions in the manual).

It's 100% Arduino-compatible, made in Canada, and back in stock!
