Arduino 2560 R3

This is the Arduino R3, the Arduino is an open-source platform based on a simple i/o board and a development environment that implements the Processing / Wiring language. Arduino can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP). The open-source IDE can be downloaded for free (currently for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux).

The Arduino Mega R3 is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega2560. There are 54 digital input/output pins (14 of these 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.


The Ardunio R3 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.

The Ardunio Mega 2560 R3 also adds the SDA and SCL pins next to the AREF. In addition two new pins have been placed near the RESET pin. One is the IOREF that allow the shields to adapt to the voltage provided from the board. The other is not connected and is reserved for future purposes. The Mega 2560 R3 works with all existing shields but can adapt to new shields which use these additional pins.
