Elektor Academy - Platino, an ultra-versatile platform for AVR microcontroller circuits




Many microcontroller applications share a common architecture: an LCD, a few pushbuttons and some interface circuitry to talk to the real world. Platino offers a flexible through-hole design for such systems based on the popular AVR microcontrollers from Atmel. Platino supports all 28 and 40 pin AVR devices, several types of LCD and has a flexible pushbutton and/or rotary encoder configuration. Add-on cards in the form of Arduino type shields or custom boards are fully supported. Platino is compatible with the Arduino IDE and with many other popular development systems.
