Description How To

Arduino Mega 2560 is an awesome tool for physical computing It's a tool for making computers that can sense and control more of the physical world than your desktop computer. It's an open source physical computing platform based on a simple microcontroller board, and a development environment for writing software for the board.

The Arduino Mega 2560 is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega2560. It has 54 digital input/output pins (of which 14 can be used as PWM outputs), 16 analog inputs, 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started. The Mega is compatible with most shields designed for the Arduino Duemilanove or Diecimila.

Niiiiiice... June 10, 2009
Reviewer: Jay Bryon from Oakland, CA United States  
I actually started my microcontroller adventures with the "Wiring" module, which is the bigger stepbrother to arduino, but since this is also using the same physical header platform as the regular arduino (plus more headers of course) it's even better.  I picked it up at maker faire 09, took it home, tested it with Arduino 16, and it worked first time.  I really like the auto-reload when you upload a sketch as well!  Another improvement over the Wiring board.  This is likely going to become the brain of a robot/sculpture I've had in mind for some time.  (Taking over world optional).

AMAZING!!! May 10, 2009
Reviewer:  Tyler LaVite from Illinois  
If i could rate this above 5 stars it gets a 100+ and the shipping time was amazing! standard USPS was in Illinois from CA in 2 days i was amazed! I am running my bard on a MacBook and i must say it is a very easy board to learn how to use and it teaches you allot. I had old LCD's laying around doing nothing and learned how to make them run.
