#2840: ARDUINO MEGA 2560 R3


The Arduino Mega is the big brother of the Arduino Uno and is the board of choice for medium to large sized projects. The Mega has 54 Digital IO pins and 16 Analog IO pins along with 4KB of EEPROM and 256KB of of Flash Memory.  All of these extra pins and coding space allows for one to create much more complex devices than could be possible with a single Uno or Nano. The processing speed is the same as an Uno and therefore fully capable of using a mixture of Nanos, Unos and Megas in a single project!

The Arduino Mega 2560 R3 is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega2560 microcontroller. It is a larger version of the Arduino UNO and is often used in projects that require more input/output (I/O) pins, more memory, or more processing power.

The Arduino Mega 2560 R3 has a number of features that make it easy to use and versatile. It has a microcontroller that can be programmed using the Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which is a free software tool that allows you to write and upload code to the board. The board also has a large number of I/O pins (54 digital and 16 analog) that can be used to connect sensors, actuators, and other devices to the board.

The Arduino Mega 2560 R3 is an open-source platform, which means that the hardware and software designs are publicly available and can be modified by anyone. This has made it a popular choice for hobbyists, educators, and professionals, and it is used in a wide range of projects around the world. It is particularly well-suited for projects that require a large number of I/O pins or more processing power.

Please note that no USB cable is included in this package.
