FTDI Programming Board for Arduino
Code: FTDI
Price: $5.77
Quantity in Basket: none
This is the FTDI board for programming the Arduino ProMini.
It has male pins, so you can simply slip them into the holes of the ProMini and pull it back out when done programming.
No soldering needed, and the ProMini is left small and light, with no protruding pins.

If you don't have the required USB mini cable, you can get one here.

See the Sparkling Belt project to see it in use.
 



USB Mini cable
Code: USBMINI
Price: $2.82
Quantity in Basket: none
This is the cable you need to program an Arduino Nano.
