Makers and developers that are looking for an easy way to build their very own customised Arduino development board may be interested in a new kit in the form of the Perfuino Uno.
Developed by Funnyvale the new Perfuino Uno kit is available to pledge for from $16 and offers a development board measuring 4 x 2.1 inches in size, or roughly the size of an Arduino Mega board.
The Perfuino Uno is powered by an Arduino Uno compatible 16 MHz Atmel ATMEGA 328P-PU that support the standard Arduino IDE + ICSP or FTDI.
Other features of the Perfuino include dual voltage regulators (3.3V and 5.5V), Reset button + 2 additional buttons for customisation, 4 x screw terminal connections together with about 200 vias for through hole components.
The project is currently over on Kickstarter looking to raise $1500 and allows you to reuse all your existing Shields with ease. Funnyvale explains :
“This is a perfect little kit that let you create your own Arduino compatible board. In essence, it is similar to an Arduino Uno but with extra space to add your own circuitry. You can re-use all the existing shields available on Arduino Uno as well. Sweet? With Perfuino Uno, you can stack existing shields and add your own circuitry on the side.”
