Induino R5 Arduino R3 USB Clone Board - Latest Revision of the Induino Board

The Induino R5 is the latest design revision in the Induino Series of Boards.

The Induino R5 is a Arduino Rev3 Clone with a ATmega328 microcontroller loaded with Arduino UNO bootloader. Rev3 compatibility ensures that the board works with the newer versions of the arduino shields.

The Induino R5 comes with 3 major changes - The FTDI ic has been replaced by CH340 IC, the RTC Pinout changes to match the improved RTC DS3231 Breakout Board and the addition of a 3.3V regulator for better 3.3V output
It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, an ICSP header, and a reset button. Like the Duemilanove, 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. It is completely compatible with all arduino shields mechanically.
On top of the regular features of an Arduino Board, The Induino R5 comes with a number of on-board peripherals and interfaces.
The Following is the list of On-Board Peripherals
  • 3 LEDS on digital pins 11,12 & 13 [for experimentation with digital outputs]
  • 3 Push Buttons on digital pins 7,8 & 9 [for experimentation with digital inputs]
  • 1 IR LED on digital pin 14 a.k.a anlog input pin 0 [experimentation with pulse generation & wireless communication]
  • 1 TSOP IR Receiver on digital pin 15 a.k.a analog input pin 1 [experimentation with pulse decoding & wireless communication]
  • 1 LDR (with potential divider) on analog input pin 3 [experimentation with analog sensors]
  • 1 RGB Led [experimentation with analog outputs / PWM]

The Following is the list of On-Board Interfaces
  • R3 Shield Compatible Pinouts – Makes the board compatible with all the latest R3 Arduino Shields
  • Analog Sensor Interface – Plug & Program Interface compatible with a number of sensors – HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Distance Sensor, RHT03 – Humidity & Temperature Sensor, Force Sensitive Resistors & Other Variable Resistor type sensors
  • Servo Interface – Plug & Program upto 2 / 3 Servo Motors (3rd one using the Analog Sensor Interface)
  • RTC Interface – Plug & Program interface for DS18B
  • I2C OLED Display Interface - Plug in I2C OLED Displays Directly onto the Board
  • FTDI Bit Bang Programming Interface


  1. Thanking you for this post shared with us. It is a type of review and I hope it will be more helpful to the readers. Today most of the students have the trouble with their academic tasks. Therefore they want valuable help from genuine sources. And expect a better answer for their questions like custom essay writing service. Today most of them are experienced with best services.

  2. From my point of view i think its a Good review about Latest induino board because mostly people never know the all features of it which you briefly describe here.
