The Arduino Nano is a small board based on the ATmega328 or 168. It has male headers, so it can be plugged directly into a breadboard. It is small and compact, and features a USB chip.

The Arduino Nano is a small, complete, and breadboard-friendly board based on the ATmega328 (Arduino Nano 3.x) or ATmega168 (Arduino Nano 2.x). It has more or less the same functionality of the Arduino Duemilanove, but in a different package. It lacks only a DC power jack, and works with a Mini-B USB cable instead of a standard one. The Nano was designed and is being produced by Gravitech.
