This AVR Development Kit contains everything you need for a basic ATmega32A circuit includes a 40 pin AVR development board, ATmega32A-PU Microcontroller , power supply components and more.
The development board is 5" x 3.7" (127 x 93.98mm), is made of 1.6mm FR4 and has clean routed edges. It has 6 mounting holes and conforms to the full size protostack form factor. This allows it to be stacked with other full size and half size protostack boards.
The copper (top and bottom) has a thickness of 1oz per sqr foot and the GND and VCC power rails have a width of 50mil (top) and 60mil (bottom). This allows plenty of current to get through with very little track heating. The power rails are routed right throughout the board, making it easier to add your own circuits. The solder pads are quite large and are treated with lead free HASL, making it easy to solder components in place. All holes are through plated.
This is the kit that Tweak Town reviewed and gave a "Must Have - Best Features award". You can read the full review here
Aside from the board, the kit also contains the microcontroller, the power supply parts and a range of other components needed to create a basic AVR circuit. Being a through-hole kit it is easy enough for a beginner to use, and the User's Guide has detailed instructions.
Whilst many AVR programmers will work with this board, we recommend the USBASP AVR Programmer.
