The pt1-ATmega1284-5V33V is a robust, fully featured ATmega1284 development board built on through-hole components. Its main feature is a fast-mode I2C interface that supports 5V and 3.3V devices at the same time. Both voltages are provided by two on-board regulators.
Apart from the two main connectors making the full range of MCU pins available, the board also features individual connectors for I2C at 5V and 3.3V, power at 5V and 3.3V, and ISP and UART. The latter two allow the board to be connected to a computer for programming and monitoring/debugging with minimum wiring and hassle. External power can be provided through the 5.5mm power jack, or directly from an external 5V source.
I've developed this board so I could connect my ATmega-based systems to the Internet using an ESP8266 IC (which runs only at 3.3V) over the I2C bus. Even though the ATmega ICs are able run at 3.3V too, they cannot do so at higher clock speeds. As a matter of fact I've been using these ATmega1284 ICs in slightly overclocked setups using a 22.1 MHz crystal without any issues.
Note: the linear power regulators on this board perform the best (i.e. generate the least heat) when the voltage of the power supply is only a little higher than 5V (but at least 6.5V is required to bridge the drop-out voltage). A multi-voltage multi-connector power adapter (preset to 7.5V) is available as an option to this board. If you prefer to use an external regulated/switched 5V power supply that you may have already available, there are a separate connector and switch on the board allowing you to bypass the built-in regulators. For basic applications, the 5V power supplied through the USB port over the ISP/UART connection will be sufficient.
All boards have been tested successfully before shipping in a setup connected to a 3.3V ESP8266 board. An original Wemos/Lolin D1 mini Pro board (featuring an ESP8266) is available as an option to this board.
In action: ATmega1284, DS3231 RTC, and Wemos D1 mini all talking to each other over 5V and 3.3V I2C bus.

Offerman Industries is creating art and design based on old-school electronics, i.e. retrotronics. It involves programming embedded systems, and designing and having manufactured aluminium components, electronic schematics, printed circuit boards, 3D-printed objects, and laser-cut acrylic glass and aluminium. Although some of these technologies are also used in the makers movement, in this case a far more robust, industrial approach is used.
Components are sourced from countries all over the world, including the USA, China, Russia and Ukraine, making this venture – in modern business terms – a micro-multinational :-)
Adrian Offerman has a M.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from Delft University of Technology, where he specialized in Computer Architecture and Digital Technique, and was trained as a processor designer. Furthermore, in 2010 he completed a M.Sc. degree in Psychology at Leiden University, where he specialized in cognitive psychology and clinical psychology.
Next to his technical writing, Adrian has been working as a consultant and engineer, advising on technology, business, markets and innovation. Furthermore, he has worked as a Linux system manager, network manager, webmaster, software developer and architect, and technology advisor. He also had a web hosting company for almost ten years, specializing in more complex, non-commodity services.
Offerman Industries is his latest undertaking in engineering, creating art and design based on old-school electronics.
