A brief Introduction to the Arduino MEGA

Buy

  1. ATMEGA 1280 Processor

  2. 8KB RAM

  3. 4KB EEPROM

  4. 16 Analog Input pins

  5. 53 Digital IO pins

  1. -4 Hardware UARTs

  2. -14 PWMs

  3. -I2C

  4. -32 General purpose IO

And, most Arduino shields will still be compatible because the basic pin placement has not changed.


Can you imagine the amazing projects that are going to be possible with this MEGA Arduino !

Since the Arduino MEGA is so different from older versions and has many more IO pins, to use it you will require the new Arduino 015 software, get it at the Arduino web site.

An example circuit, showing how to breakout the large header on the right side of the MEGA.

Two 16 wire ribbon cables are being used to break-out 32 pin double row connector on the right side of the Arduino MEGA. This is a 32 position IDC connector with extra long male-male pins going down into the Arduino, on the other side I used two 16 pin DIP style connectors.
