A note from July 6, 2018 When I was in high school, I wrote a short post on building a low-cost Arduino on a breadboard. It’s been quite some time since I’ve done any significant hardware hacking, but since my old blog is mostly dead at this point I reproduce that post here I’ve burnt out a few Arduinos recently, and have found it expedient to just build my own on a breadboard rather than pay $34.
