Femtoduino - Ultrasmall Arduino compatible board

The Femtoduino is an ultrasmall (20.7x15.2 mm) Arduino compatible board licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0).
It is being developed by Fabio Varesano after he needed to add Arduino functionality to small objects.
The result is what you can see on the picture of this post.

Unfortunately, the board is not being sold, meaning you will have to buy all the parts, make the PCB or order it from a fab house and solder all the components yourself.
Luckily, Fabio has shared everything you'll need to build this little devil.

You can buy all the parts by visiting the following link:

For Bill of Materials, Gerber files, schematics and KiCad sources please visit Varesano's website.

ITG-3200 Gyroscope Library for Arduino updated

ITG-3200 breakout board by Sparkfun Electronics

I've updated the library to communicate with the ITG-3200 gyroscope by Invense.
In this new version I've included all necessary functions to use the gyroscope's interrupt.

Note: Default values (including I2C Address) are set up to work with SparkFun's ITG-3200 breakout board.

Also, included with the library are two examples, one with interrupts, and one without them.

The following link will take you to the GitHub repository:
