Arduino Pro 328 - 5V/16MHz
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 in a super-sleek form factor that will fit easily into your next small project.
Arduino Pro does not come with connectors populated so that you can solder in any connector or wire with any orientation you need. We recommend first time Arduino users start with the Uno R3. It’s a great board that will get you up and running quickly. The Arduino Pro series is meant for users that understand the limitations of this lack of connectors and USB off board.
To keep things affordable and low profile, we’ve chosen to make the DC power jack footprint available, but not to populate it. We recommend running the board with a LiPo battery for better portability. Also, to keep the cost low, we made changes like using all SMD components and switching to a two layer PCB.
