Meet the RBBB Pro

The Real Bare Bones Board by Modern Device is a neat little Arduino clone (it was my inspiration for the JeeNode, in fact). The RBBB is easy to build, very small, and very popular, at JeeLabs as well.

Now, there’s also a ready-made “pre-assembled” 5V model, based on the SMD version of the ATmega328 which has two additional analog-in pins (note that they are not general purpose I/O pins!):

Well labeled for use either way, and very convenient for breadboard use. Here’s the bottom view:

The headers and DC power connector are included, but not soldered on – for maximum flexibility:

DSC 2938

Fully compatible with the RBBB, but considerably flatter if you omit the DC connector.

I’ve added it to the JeeLabs shop and it’s available now. It’ll probably be used in future projects here as well.

  1. It’s arduino compatible?

    It seems to be a Jeenode without the RF chip. Isn’t it?

  2. Interesting, but I think that functionally there is a lot of overlap with the existing RBBB and various types of JeeNodes. I would be more interested in a node that adds native USB support such as the Teensy/Teensy++ (see
