Nanite85 – is it the smallest tiny arduino?

It seems that battle for smallest Arduino position isn’t over. When it seems that there is no mo place to shrink, here comes another one to take the place. This time Nanite85. As name tells this one is based on Attiny85 microcontroller with USB bootloader. Due to space constraints microcontroller is powered directly from USB without voltage converter. Nanite85 is breadboard compatible and comes with all 8 pins brought out. There is a LED which shares same pin as reset button. It can be used once reset is disabled. The board dimensions is 10.1mm width, 17.8mm length. If you would like to build one all design files and example code is available on GitHub. Continue reading
