Just received my new Arduino board called Duemilanove. It was made 2009 in Italy and has this nice print of Italy on the back. It works like a beauty and I no longer need to press that “&/(€%&//” reset-button. Some nice features are:
- It’s fully compatible with the previous ATmega168, but with twice the memory.
- The Duemilanove automatically selects the appropriate power supply (USB or external power), eliminating the need for the power selection jumper found on previous boards.
- The speed (in the bootloader) has been raised for uploading new sketches, from 19200 baud to 57600 baud.
