Arduino Lilipad Board
The datasheet). The Arduino was designed and developed by Leah Buechley and Electronics.Arduino is a microcontroller board designed for wearables and e-textiles. It can be sewn to fabric and similarly mounted power supplies, sensors and actuators with conductive thread. The board is based on the (the low-power version of the ) (
Warning: Don’t power theArduino with more than 5.5 volts, or plug the power in backwards: you’ll kill it.
|Operating Voltage||2.7-5.5 V|
|Input Voltage||2.7-5.5 V|
|Digital I/O Pins||14 (of which 6 provide PWM output)|
|Analog Input Pins||6|
|DC Current per I/O Pin||40 mA|
|Flash Memory||16 KB (of which 2 KB used by bootloader)|
The download). *Note*, the Arduino should only be programmed with software versions 0010 or higher. You can program it with earlier versions, but all of the time related functions will be off (twice as slow as they should be). The on the Arduino comes preburned with a bootloader that allows you to upload new code to it with the Arduino software. The bootloader on the most recent boards is Limor Fried’s “no wait” bootloader. When the is supplied with power, its Arduino sketch starts immediately. The bootloader is triggered only when the reset switch is pressed. You can also bypass the bootloader and program the through the ICSP (In-Circuit Serial Programming) header; see these instructions for details.Arduino can be programmed with the Arduino software (
TheArduino can be powered via the USB connection or with an external power supply. If an external power supply is used, it should provide between 2.7 and 5.5 volts. This can come either from an AC-to-DC adapter (wall-wart) or battery. Again, don’t power the Arduino with more than 5.5 volts, or plug the power in backwards: you’ll kill it.
TheArduino is a circle, approximately 50mm (2″) in diameter. The board itself is .8mm (1/32″) thick (approximately 3mm (1/8″) where electronics are attached).
Wash at your own risk – we do ;). We recommend washing projects by hand with a mild detergent. Drip dry. Make sure you remove your power supply first!
