Arduino Pro or Pro Mini ATmega168 (5V, 16 MHz)


Platform Atmel AVR: Atmel AVR 8-bit MCUs deliver a unique combination of performance, power efficiency and design flexibility. Optimized to speed time to market-and easily adapt to new ones-they are based on the industry’s most code-efficient architecture for C and assembly programming

Microcontroller ATMEGA168
Frequency 16MHz
Flash 14KB
Vendor Arduino


Please use pro16MHzatmega168 ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

platform = atmelavr
board = pro16MHzatmega168

You can override default Arduino Pro or Pro Mini ATmega168 (5V, 16 MHz) settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest pro16MHzatmega168.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

platform = atmelavr
board = pro16MHzatmega168

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = atmega168

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 16000000L


Debugging - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.


You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions and configuration information.

You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

Arduino Pro or Pro Mini ATmega168 (5V, 16 MHz) has on-board debug probe and IS READY for debugging. You don’t need to use/buy external debug probe.
