Paperduino-Paper Electronics using circuit scribe

Arduino Pro Mini board using a pen plotter and the Electroninks Circuit Scribe (a rollerball pen with highly conductive ink). Within 15 minutes we printed the board, placed components down with glue or tape, and uploaded a sketch.



Materials needed:
Circuit Scribe conductive ink pen
Silhouette SD plotter
8.5×11″ glossy photo paper
Electroninks Arduino connection kit
FTDI cable
USBtinyISP bootloader or a pre-bootloaded Arduino chip
Superglue (Loctite gel) or Z-tape


EAGLE PCB (if you want to modify the board)
Arduino IDE
Silhouette Studio


Paperduino 2.0 Schematics and Layout (EAGLE)

Components list

2x 10 uF capacitors (1206 package)
3x 0.1 uF capacitor (1206)
2x 10 KOhm resistors (1206)
330 Ohm resistor (1206)
Red LED (1206)
Green LED (1206)
5V voltage regulator (5 pin)
8 MHz resonator
Tactile switch
