Minitronics is the latest development of ReprapWorld.com. It's designed to be an easy to use, compact and smart solution to fit 90% of the 3D-printers. Unlike the Megatronics, which targets at the advanced range of usages, the Minitronics is plug and plug, which will fit the needs of the average user better.
Minitronics has a powerful Atmega1281 processor with 128 KB memory, running at 16Mhz. The board can be connected to a PC using a normal USB cable. It will register as FTDI FT232R device. The board is compatible with Arduino and will therefor be easily programmed from the Arduino IDE.
This kit includes, besides the Minitronics board, a fan to cool the board and a cable with ATX connector to connect the board to your power supply. The board is bootloaded with a adjusted Marlin version, but you probably need to tweak some settings. You can download a adjusted Marlin version from the software downloads section.
