The MiKro - An Arduino UNO form factor based board using the ATmega 1284p micro controller

Hello everyone,

some people have noticed on twitter that I was trying to compile the optiboot boot loader for the ATmega 1284p for the 5V/16MHz configuration. I finally succeeded and created the MiKro board which is described in a little more detail on it’s dedicated project page:

Although the the MiKro is work in progress the schematic, board and board definition files for the Arduino v1.0.5 IDE are already available on github:

Please post suggestions or feature requests to improve the MiKro or get a beta board for a few bucks in it’s dedicated forum at

Thank you very much,
