Barebones arduino with no PSU example

by shedboy71

This is a basic ‘barebones arduino’, this is an Atmega328 based design.

In this example we are externally powering the Atmega from a 5v source, this removes the need for a 5v on board regulator. In theory you can also remove the crystal and capacitors and use the internal clock but I kept these parts in

Here is a parts list, you can easily build this circuit on veroboard, stripboard or make your own PCB
