Trinket's got a big sister in town - the Pro Trinket 5V! Pro Trinket combines everything you love about Trinket with the familiarity of the common core Arduino chip, the ATmega328. it's like an Arduino Pro Mini with more pins and USB tossed in, so delicious.
Trinket's a year old now, and while its been great to see tons of tiny projects, sometimes you just need more pins, more FLASH, and more RAM. That's why we designed Pro Trinket, with 18 GPIO, 2 extra analog inputs, 28K of flash, and 2K of RAM.
Like the Trinket, it has onboard USB bootloading support - we opted for a MicroUSB jack this time. We also added Optiboot support, so you can either program your Pro Trinket over USB or with a FTDI cable just like the Pro Mini and friends.
The Pro Trinket PCB measures only 1.5" x 0.7" x 0.2" (without headers) but packs much of the same capability as an Arduino UNO. So it's great once you've finished up a prototype on an official Arduino UNO and want to make the project smaller.
The Pro Trinket 5V uses the Atmega328P chip, which is the same core chip in the Arduino UNO/Duemilanove/Mini/etc. at the same speed and voltage. So you'll be happy to hear that not only is Pro Trinket programmable using the Arduino IDE as you already set up, but 99% of Arduino projects will work out of the box!
Here's some things you may have to consider when adapting Arduino sketches:
Pins #2 and #7 are not available (they are exclusively for USB)
The onboard 5V regulator can provide 150mA output, not 800mA out
You cannot plug shields directly into the Pro Trinket
There is no Serial-to-USB chip onboard. This is to keep the Pro Trinket small and inexpensive, you can use any FTDI cable to connect to the FTDI port for a Serial connection. The USB connection is for uploading new code only.
The bootloader on the Pro Trinket use 4KB of FLASH so the maximum sketch size is 28,672 bytes. The bootloader does not affect RAM usage.
Here's some handy specifications:
ATmega328P onboad chip in QFN package
16MHz clock rate, 28K FLASH available
USB bootloader with a nice LED indicator looks just like a USBtinyISP so you can program it with AVRdude and/or the Arduino ID (with a few simple config modifications).
Also has headers for an FTDI port for reprogramming
Micro-USB jack for power and/or USB uploading, you can put it in a box or tape it up and use any USB cable for when you want to reprogram.
On-board 5.0V power regulator with 150mA output capability and ultra-low dropout. Up to 16V input, reverse-polarity protection, thermal and current-limit protection.
Power with either USB or external output (such as a battery) - it'll automatically switch over
On-board green power LED and red pin #13 LED
Reset button for entering the bootloader or restarting the program.
Works with 99% of existing Arduino sketches (anything that doesn't use more than 28K, and doesn't require pins #2 and #7)
Round and round and round they go! 12 ultra bright smart LED NeoPixels are arranged in a circle with 1.5" (37mm) outer diameter. The rings are \'chainable\' - connect the output pin of one to the input pin of another. Use only one microcontroller pin to control as many as you can chain together! Each LED is addressable as the driver chip is inside...
Trinket may be small, but do not be fooled by its size! it\'s a tiny microcontroller board, built around the Atmel ATtiny85, a little chip with a lot of power. We wanted to design a microcontroller board that was small enough to fit into any project, and low cost enough to use without hesitation. Perfect for when you don\'t want to give up your expensive...
Use this simple IR receiver for infrared remote control of your next project. With low power consumption and an easy to use package, it mates well with embedded electronics and can be used with common IR remotes.
The LM335Z is a very easy-to-use analog temperature sensor. The LM335Z works like a Zener diode with a breakdown voltage proportional to absolute temperature at 10mV/¡K. Hook up a resistor from 5V and GND, and the LM335Z will output an analog voltage of 2.98V (298 Kelvin is 25C or room temperature). The output of the sensor is linear, and when...
This is a very simple, clear infrared LED. These devices operate between 940-950nm and work well for generic IR systems including remote control and touch-less object sensing. Pair them with any of our IR receivers (see Related Items below). 1.5VDC forward voltage and 50mA max forward current
it\'s a "soft touch" T18 RED knob that works great with our Panel Mount 10K and Panel Mount 100K potentiometers. The knob is designed to set directly on the potentiometer\'s ridges so it\'s an easy amp; secure fit. It has a nice feel, with a rubbery grip, tweaking it is quite fulfilling.
Screw Terminals with 3.5mm pitch 2 pins. Comes in 2 or 3 positions and have
the really cool feature of slide-locking together to form any size you need (4,
5, up to 20 without problems). Rated up to 125V @ 6A. Terminal can accept 30 to
20AWG wire. 3.5mm/138mil pin pitch will not fit\'standard 0.1" perf boards but
this is the most common pitch...
This 47 x 35mm (1.84 x 1.37") breadboard has 17 rows of tie points, enough for up to two 14 or 16 pin DIP integrated circuits (ICs). The board features an adhesive backing and is Green color. Add some color to your next project!
Oh so adorable, this is the tiniest little lipo charger, so handy you can keep it any project box! Its also easy to use. Simply plug in the gold plated contacts into any USB port and a 3.7V/4.2V lithium polymer or lithium ion rechargeable battery into the JST plug on the other end. There are two LEDs - one red and one green. While charging, the...
This adapter allows you to connect a barrel jack connector to bare wires. One end has screw terminals and the other has a 5.5x2.1mm, center-positive female barrel jack. If you have a power supply with a barrel jack and want to plug it into a breadboard, this might be the simple solution.
These 3-wire cables are 163mm (6.4") long and come as a set. One cable has a JST SM type connector plug on the end. The other cable has a matching JST SM type receptacle connector. They are good for whenever you have 3 wires you want to be able to plug and unplug. We like the solid and compact nature of these connectors and the latch that keeps the cable...
If you have a Pro Trinket you probably know it\'s the perfect little size for a portable project. This LiPoly backpack makes it really easy to do! Instead of wiring 2 or 3 boards together to make a charging system, this little PCB sits on top of the Pro Trinket and allows a LiPoly/LiIon battery to plug in. When the Pro Trinket USB port is powered, the...
What is better than smart RGB LEDs? Smart RGB+White LEDs! These NeoPixels with 60 LED/m now have 4 LEDs in them (red, green, blue and white) for excellent lighting effects. These LED strips are fun and glowy, and you can control each LED individually!
This sealed Digital Temperature Sensor DS18B20 2 meter probe lets you precisely measure temperatures in wet environments with a simple 1-Wire interface. The DS18B20 provides 9 to 12-bit (configurable) temperature readings over a 1-Wire interface, so that only one wire (and ground) needs to be connected from a central microprocessor.
