The ATMegaZero is a microcontroller board based on the ATMega32U4 microchip, the same chip used in the Arduino Leonardo and Arduino Micro. It was modeled after the Raspberry PI Zero to take advantage of its sleek design and form factor but in the form of a microcontroller board.
Similar to the Raspberry Pi Zero the ATMegaZero comes with 40 GPIO pins that can be used as input or output for interfacing devices and can be programmed using the Arduino IDE software.
Because the ATMegaZero was modeled after the Raspberry Pi Zero it will fit perfectly on any existing Raspberry Pi Zero cases.
The ATMegaZero was designed with makers in mind and here are some of the key specs that make this a great microcontroller board:
In order to get the unit costs low enough, the manufacturer requires at least an order of 100 units. Help make this GroupGet a reality by supporting today!

This is a great way to add pins to the ATMegaZero board.
@CatFood, great question. The colorful ones are not included and I wasn't able to get them in bulk to include it as an Addon. The only one available was black. I'm planning to find a manufacturer that can do them in bulk and will have them available for sale from my website after the campaign ends. Thanks for the question.
Thank you @dan_begallie, I'm glad you like it too. Unfortunately, we don't have the colored header pins as part of the campaign, but you will be able to get them from the ATMegaZero Online Store after the campaign is over. The manufacturer didn't have them available on time for the campaign. Sorry about that. But thank you for backing the project!!
I fixed it on the images on my website https://atmegazero.com. I will also update the diagram pinout too to match. Thanks for the reminder.
@carsten.corazza I think that I might have a similar issue.
I did not think to look over the board before powering it on, but I was able to upload a simple blink sketch to it. Afterwards I uploaded the SD card demo (https://atmegazero.com/#/sd_card_demo) and not only does that fail, it fails and I can no longer write to the board. The bootloader is still working, and I was going to write to the board via the ICSP, but after the previous post I did notice some solder pads are joined and some components are connected. Most obvious is C24 is connected to D2, but there are several others.
Hi @carsten.corazza and Robert. The SMD that are touching are decoupling capacitors and won't affect the board. The reasons they are not aligned is because they are very closed to each other, and during the melting process in production they got shifted, they will not affect the board and it won't burn as each of those boards was tested prior to shipping them to GroupGets.
Robert, in regards to the SD card, please make sure that you press and hold the reset button when you press the upload sketch and release once you see the uploading status on the Arduino IDE. If you like please ping me directly so that I can help you out. firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll be happy to replace it if there is any problems. Thanks.
