Arduino PCB DIY

Arduino PCB
If your projects require many Arduino and you do not want to purchase the expensive full set of Arduino, here is the good place to go.
All the PCB design is single sided I sugggested to use toner transfer to make the PCB. You should Google "toner transfer" if you want to know more about it.
 
I should mention all the collection of PCB is not my own design, all credit goes to each respective authors.
