Breakout board

A PCB (either premade or from perf) that can hold the following.

We like the EMSL devboards for this use, they are available in 'xx8 and '2313 formats.

Full dev kit


ZIF socket An easy-to-open ("zero insertion force") and close socket, we prefer the ones with gold contacts - a little pricier but will last a lot longer. Make sure they are 'universal' - can take both 0.3" and 0,6" wide chips! ZIF socket


Indicator LED Use it for 'power good' or other blinky. 5mm red diffused



6-pin box header With a key, its less likely to insert the cable backwards. 2x3 pin header



Ceramic Oscillator 16MHz is good, but really anything >4MHz is OK. Ceramic resonator


Ceramic 0.1uF capacitor (104) Nearly any capacitor will do, just to provide a little power supply smoothing. Ceramic Capacitor


Rubber bumper For protecting the PCB! Rubber bumper


Programmer We like the USBtinyISP - not just because we designed it but also because it can provide 'target power' - so you don't need a seperate power plug! USBtinyISP
