This is our arduino project that helps our selfs to build faster and smarter electronic projects.
It is based on the famous attiny 85 from atmel (datasheet here<--)
IF YOU HAVE TO BUILD A SIMPLE ARDUINO PROJECT WITH THE USE AF FEW I/O'S YOU CAN SHRINK YOUR TOTAL PROJECT TO A SINGLE 8PIN CHIP PCB CONSTRUCTION. USE THE SHIELDS OF USBEDUINO AND GAIN: -WIDE POWER UP VOLTAGE RANGE (5-12VDC) -WIDE INPUTS VOLTAGE RANGE (0-24 VDC) -READY TO USE TRIMMER ANALOGUE INPUT -WIDE OUTPUTS VOLTAGE RANGE (0-24 VDC) -POWERFULL SINK CURRENT OUTPUTS (3 AMPS) -VERY SMALL FINAL SIZE -NO EXTERNAL MODULES NEEDED DRIVE DOWN TOTAL COSTS AND SIZE!SAVE TIME AND MONEY WITH THE SIMPLICITY OF USBEDUINO SHIELDS!
Step 1: Main Shield
main shield is the heart of the usbeduino project.it contains the famous attiny85 that it must be programmed according to your project.You can use it as it is to program your attiny85 or you can combine it with the other shields.By default we have program the chip to test it before it arrives to you with the initialize and test code code found here<-- and made by us to test the main shield and the others too.

Step 2: Power Shield
power shield is placed on the bottom of the main shield.We use it when the main power supply is more than 5 volts.You can use voltages levels up to 12 volts.You can use it as a stand alone dc to dc converter to take the necessary 5 volts for logic level circuits too.The main power supply voltage will be delivered to all the shields via the Vin pin of the usbeduino so to use it on your loads with no extra wires.A very useful solution!

Step 3: Input Shield
input shield is used when when you use sensors that works on voltages more than 5 volts.So you can work directly with the high voltage signals.In addition there is build in trimmer so to be able to have a ready to use analogue input.Use it as an arduino UNO's shield or usbeduino shield or as stand alone input module.
Step 4: Output Shield
power shield is used to simplify the communication with the real world.High power outputs can sink currents up to 3 amps and up to 24 volts.Attach it to your arduino UNO or usbeduino or use it as stand alone output module.No external wires and mess with other boards.Hold your outputs really easy.
