This instructable shows, how to do your own development board for Atmega16 or Atmega32 processors.The Internet is full of home made development boards, but I think that, there is room left for another one. This board have been very useful on my projects and I actually designed and made it to serve one of my project.
What it offers?
- Adjustable reference voltage for AREF with trimmer.
- 8 leds connected PORTA with removable jumpers, so you can use leds also with another ports.
- Spike bars for PORTA, PORTB, PORTC and PORTD.
- Modified spike bar for LCD-screen (4 bit)
- rs232 serial port connector
- Removable rs232 module
- Regulated 5V
What you will need? (parts for main board)
- 1x Atmega16 or Atmega32 processor
- 1x crystal (It is your choice how many Mhz it will be)
- 2x 27 pF capacitors for crystal
- 1x 7805 voltage regulator
- 1x 47uF 16V capacitor
- 3x 100nF capacitor
- 1x DC-jack 2,1mm or 2,5mm (what ever you want use)
- 1x 1K potentiometer
- 8x led (any colour)
- 8x 330 Ohm resistors
- lot of spike bars
Parts for rs232 module
- Max232 IC
- 4x 0,1uF capacitors
- 2x led (green and red)
- 2x 330 Ohm resistors
- Spike bar
Step 1: The Circuit Boards
There is circuits from the both boards and the pdf-file contains print out files from these boards. You can etch your boards from these pictures. The zip-file contains all Eagle-files from these boards. Feel free to modify these how do you want.
Step 2: Etching or Milling
There is two ways to make these boards, etching or milling. I'm not a chemist, so I used the last option. I made my mill from these great instructables
, so If someone have also nc-mill and want to use it for make these boards, just let me know and I will send the G-codes.
Step 3: Soldering
The picture on below will show the name of the component and where it should be on board.
