The JeeLabs SMD Kit is a tiny board with an 8-bit Atmel RISC microprocessor. It is compatible with the Arduino platform and can be programmed under Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux using sketches created with the Arduino IDE.
The SMD Kit is very much like a JeeNode kit, but using tiny surface-mount (SM) parts, and without the wireless radio / FTDI connector / USB. You can either add an FTDI-compatible serial port 6-pin header externally (with an extra 0.1µF capacitor), or program the board using an ISP programmer.
Each SMD Kit has 4 identical “ports” for attaching analog and digital I/O logic, I2C devices, and more. The Ports library makes it easy to interface to these ports.
The Kit contains all the components needed to build a SMD Kit, including the ATmega328p processor.
The PCB only variant is
the bare v1 board without components. You’ll need to add your own
ATmega, regulator, resonator, pin headers, and a few R’s and C’s to make
a working SMD Kit.
As connectors you can use a Plug Headers
set with 10 male and 10 female 6-pin headers, which makes it easy to
connect multiple plugs and JeeNodes in a “standard” way. Or you can
solder the board directly in place for more permanent use.
The documentation and full design details are freely available.
Note: this board used to be called the JeeSMD.
