The enduring Arduino board is again, within the form of the UNO Mini Restricted Version. Pre-orders have simply gone stay, so don’t dawdle if you wish to get your arms on this beautiful piece of Arduino historical past.
10 Million Makers Can’t Be Improper
The UNO Mini Restricted Version is right here to rejoice a fairly epic milestone in Arduino’s historical past.

The UNO has now bought over 10 million items.
It’s unimaginable to guess what number of initiatives that equates to. Similar to us, lots of you’ll have owned quite a lot of UNOs during the last decade, and a few of these may have been utilized in a number of initiatives. Can you continue to keep in mind your first UNO, or your first UNO challenge? Share them with us!
So we needed one thing tremendous cool to rejoice this new maker board milestone. And that one thing is the UNO Mini Restricted Version.
Meet the UNO Mini Restricted Version
Before everything, that is an UNO like every other. It’s (virtually) the identical specs, with the identical processor, pinouts and efficiency that made the UNO so standard. However there are a few cool tweaks we expect you’ll love.
Most likely one of many first stuff you observed was that the USB port has been up to date to USB-C. An replace we’re assured you’ll respect, and never simply because it helps with the decreased type issue.
