The MAKIT-THT is an Arduino Uno compatible board that uses only through-hole components making it a perfect soldering kit. This kit is a perfect gateway into the world of electronics. Unlike some other soldering kits, the MAKIT-THT is more than just a novelty, it is a tool for continued electronics and programming learning.
“I teach ‘Electronics for Scientists’ at a large university, and this MAKIT-THT Arduino clone is perfect for my class. Students learn how to solder while building their own Arduino, then use that Arduino for the microcontroller exercises in the rest of the course. It’s a great little kit!”
-Dr. Eric Ayars Professor and Chair of Physics California State University, Chico
The MAKIT-THT uses the Atmega328p, the same as the Arduino Uno, and the MCP2221A USB to UART IC for the USB interface between the board and your PC. The MAKIT-THT includes both a 3.3V and 5V linear regulator capable of 300mA and 1A outputs respectively. The pinout of the board is identical to the Arduino Uno down to the ICSP header location on the board. A red LED is connected to pin 13 on the board for the famous BLINK sketch. All MAKIT-THTs come with the Atmega328p pre-programmed with the Optiboot bootloader.
Note: the MCP2221A does not handle the reset during a sketch upload like a typical Uno, instead you must press the reset button on the MAKIT-THT to reset the board to upload sketches.
