Assembling the ZIFduino USB 1.2 using ATMEGA168 microcontroller

The ZIFduino, for all intents and purposes, is an Arduino with a ZIF socket. It's geared toward those that want to do prototyping on the platform, but then move the ATMega chip to a stand-alone environment. The pin layouts are exactly the same, so it should be compatible with most shields designed for the Arduino. The PDF of this instructable can be downloaded at bittyware.com/instructions/Assembling-the-ZI ...
