The Diet Duino Low Energy
To begin with the Diet Duino Low Energy – This little board was designed as a solution for you to saving costs on using Arduino in your projects.
Using an Arduino Uno on a finished project is firstly a bit expensive.
Throwing money in the water on components etc. not used in a final product.
In its basic form, you just need the Atmega microcontroller, the crystal and 2 caps.
A good idea is a 5V voltage regulator as well so you can use power sources bigger than 5V.
The rest of the stuff on an Arduino Uno is not needed on a final project. Our Skeleton Duino is designed for that, but…….
We also needed a very low power consumption unit that can work from a coin cell battery for over a year. Hence this Diet Duino.
This board includes the ATMEGA328P-PU IC
A led (that can be powered programmatically if you have to)
And a very low energy imported voltage regulator
Diet Duino Features:
There is no other board I know of that only consumes 16mA current by default and with sleep mode about 3 uA.
