Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Components Required

1) copper clad board
2) sand paper
3) drill bits-0.8mm
4) Saw blade
5) ferrous chloride
6) plastic box
7) water
8) iron box

9) Atmega 328pu /Atmega 328p-pu
10) 16mhz crystal -1
11) 22pf capacitor-2
12) 10k resistor-1
13) 1k resistor -2
14) Red Led-3mm -1
15) Blue Led-3mm -1
16) male headers -2stick
17) female header -1
18) push button-1
19) 104capacitor -2
20) soldering iron
21) flux
22) soldering lead

Step 2: Prepare Copper Clad Board

Take a plane copper clad board scrub it with Sand paper for 1min till it becomes shiny,

take a Master paper(or any glossy paper)
download arduino clone PCB pcb on

print it on master sheet only by using LASER printer,

once it is done , now place the printed PCB paper on copper clad and iron it for 10min carefully don't over heat it, now carefully remove the paper by using cold water ,

if any track is missing use marker to cover it ,
now prepare ferrous chloride solution use plastic box to mix solution,

then dip the copper clad board on ferrous chloride solution ,now leave it for 20min ..afterwards take it out and wash it with water carefully and scrub it with sandpaper PCB is ready

take a drill machine and drill it with 0.8mm drill bit,

Step 3: Solder All Components

As per the circuit diagram (website : ) solder all the components !! it will take nearly 20mins ...use 2 jumpers which is needed for this PCB..

Step 4: Program It With FTDI Convertor

Once soldering is Finished ,it is ready to be programmed ,use FTDI converter which has 6pins on it..and write any program to Arduino !!

Step 5: Upload Blink Program and Test It !!!

    can u provide the pcb layout to me

    This is good. I built something like this called the beeduino. One thing you could add is a 78805 reg and dc input jack. But honestly i also realised that its better and cheaper to get the chinese clones from aliexpress. Dont get me wrong, this is a good learning step but maybe not the best solution when it comes to practical projects.

    we get atmega 328 for around 140r (65rupee = 1$ in India) that is why I said 3$ .. :) :)

    Looks great. But if it is about price: An UNO including the USB port can be had for 3 dollars or below in china

    Next one you do, you should print out a label for the top side. It would neaten it up a little.
