The Arduino FIO Microcontroller with ATMEGA328P is a board based on the original design of Arduino FIO. It is a toolkit to sketch your idea physically, and consists of software libraries and hardware. By using it, the user can interface to sensors and/or actuators with various programming languages such as ActionScript 3, Processing, and Ruby. Arduino Fio is compatible with Funnel. It has connections for a Lithium Polymer battery and includes a charge circuit over USB. An XBee socket is available on the bottom of the board. The Fio has been designed to be wirelessly reprogrammable.
FIO Microcontroller with ATMEGA328P running at 8MHz
User can interface to sensors or actuators
Lithium Polymer battery compatible
MAX1555 LiPo Charger
Friendly with original Arduino FIO
The XBee socket and FTDI connection live on the same TX/RX pins of the ATmega328. You will need to remove the XBee module while reprogramming over serial.

Dimensions: 40 X 21mm
The breakout board for the FTDI FT232RL USB to serial IC. The pinout of this board matches the FTDI cable to work with official Arduino and cloned 3.3V Arduino boards. It can also be used for general serial applications. The major difference with this board is that it brings out the DTR pin as opposed to the RTS pin of the FTDI cable. The DTR pin allows an Arduino target to auto-reset when a new Sketch is downloaded. This is a really nice feature to have and allows a sketch to be downloaded without having to hit the reset button.
This board was designed to decrease the cost of Arduino development and increase ease of use (the auto-reset feature rocks!). The Arduino Pro and LilyPad boards use this type of connector.
