The A000073 is a Arduino Uno SMD R3 development board based on the ATmega328 microcontroller. The ATmega328 is a low power CMOS 8bit microcontroller based on the AVR enhanced RISC architecture. By executing powerful instructions in a single clock cycle, the ATmega328 achieves throughputs approaching 1MIPS per MHz allowing the system designer to optimize power consumption versus processing speed. The Arduino Uno SMD R3 evaluation board has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller, simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC to DC adapter or battery to get started. The Uno differs from all preceding boards in that it does not use the FTDI USB to serial driver chip.
