Using the Arduino Pro Mini 3.3V
Resources and Going Further
Like its predecessor, the Arduino Pro Mini is open-source hardware, which means all of the design files are free to view and modify:
Now that you know the basics of hooking up the Arduino Pro Mini, what project are you going to stick it into? Need some inspiration? Check out some of these tutorials:
- The Uncertain 7 Cube – The Pro Mini is the brains of this fun riff on the magic 8-ball.
- MP3 Player Shield Music Box – This project uses an Arduino to control the MP3s and motors, but it’d be interesting to swap that out for a Pro Mini.
- Mario the Magician’s Magical Lapel Flower – This project uses a Pro Micro to control the magical flower, but that could be swapped out for a Pro Mini too.
- Getting Started with pcDuino – If the Pro Mini doesn’t have the horsepower you’re looking for, consider moving up to the pcDuino platform.
- Interactive Hanging LED Array– Create a giant LED array driven by the Arduino Pro Mini.
