Extremely small arduino using dip16 form factor? Answered

I am looking for a extremely small arduino board close to this one that I have.->

I want a smaller form factor and I dont need need the serial headers, or even the extended sides as I can solder strait to the headers.

I tried making my own board using eagle, and diptrace but I am running into alot of issues making it so compact. I was wondering if anyone has already made a board and have to eagle files, or know of any eagle files that I can have so I can etch my own board.

Any help would be great! Thanks!


An attiny45 or attiny85 will take the Arduino bootloader. I think the larger attiny will as well, but I'd look into those two.

Of course, if you're willing to unplug the processor chip after programming it, and provide a few external components, I think that's a 28-pin DIP...

Several possibilities exist:
Arduino Mini
Arduino Pro Mini,

What do you want ? An arduino, on a 16 pin 0.4" wide DIL header ?
