The Nano CH340 R3 board is similar to the genuine Arduino Nano board. The board uses same type of Mini-B USB connector, same side connectors and 6-pin SPI connector, as well as the Atmel ATmega328P microcontroller in the 32-TQFP package. There are also 4 LEDs – Power LED, LED connected to digital output pin D13, and two LEDs showing status of the RxD and TxD communication lines.
To provide +5.0 V Vcc power supply, the board uses LM1117-5.0 SOT-223 linear stabilizer 5.0 V (compared to original UA78M05), with slightly higher current (800 mA vs. 500 mA of original UA78M05) and lower drop-out voltage (typ. 1.2 V vs. 2.0 V for UA78M05).
