THT feather with ATMEGA8

V-USB and low component count, all through-hole technology

Similar projects worth following
I had this edgy idea to make a chunky old school Arduino thing that fits the feather form factor. USB-B port and a 3V regulator make this compatible with most featherwings, there's even the built_in LED on PIN 13 to get your blinkies starting.

Can be upgraded to the Atmega328P of course, but the main goal was to have an Atmega8 DIP feather, mostly to trigger people, but the idea grew on me. Also: everyone probably has a DIP Atmega8 laying around somewhere, doing nothing - this board will give it something to do.

oh.  Do one with the new AVR128da28  (128k flash, 16k RAM, 24MHz)!

But where is the battery management?

If you can read this, you are the battery management! Should have made that pin label say NC instead
