LilyPad Arduino 168 Main Board

Replacement:DEV-09266. The new version uses the ATmega328. This page is for reference only.

This is LilyPad Arduino - the main board consisting of an ATmega168V with the Arduino bootloader and a minimum number of external components to keep it as small (and as simple) as possible. Board will run from 2V to 5V. The latest version of the LilyPad supports automatic reset for even easier programming. The back side of the LilyPad is now completely flat! We now use a surface mount programming connector to keep the header from poking through.

Note: This is a temporary revival of the LilyPad with ATmega168. Once we have proper stock of the ATmega328, this board will be re-retired. The LilyPad w/ ATmega168 works fabulously with Arduino, but has 16K versus 32K of the ATmega328.

LilyPad is a wearable e-textile technology developed by Leah Buechley and cooperatively designed by Leah and SparkFun. Each LilyPad was creatively designed to have large connecting pads to allow them to be sewn into clothing. Various input, output, power, and sensor boards are available. They're even washable!

Note: A portion of this sale is given back to Dr. Leah Buechley for continued development and education of e-textiles and also to Arduino LLC to help fund continued development of new tools and new IDE features.

    if you're a bit dim like me, you should know that the text "the LilyPad is compatible with an FTDI cable and with our FTDI basic breakout" does not mean you need both an FTDI cable AND breakout board. either one or the other will do.
