The Mega 2560 is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega2560 . It has 54 digital input/output pins (of which 15 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.

Mega ArduinoBy: Paul on 9 December 2017I have used this board to accomplish things that cannot be done with the usual ATMega328 based product. Many more peripherals or I/O lines, more memory and so on make your larger and some specialised tasks a lot easier. At the price advertised at AusElectronicsDirect it is a much better bet than the run of the mill Arduino kit.
Quality ProductBy: William Stevens on 12 November 2017This development board is being used with 48 channel relays for Christmas Lights and is excellent and reliable.

Product DeliveryBy: Stewart McManus on 10 April 2017sir/madam, I am very happy with the Arduino Mega boards delivered to me today, your promptness at dispatching my order was very much appreciated and despite Australia Posts weird and wonderful delivery times (received an e-mail on Friday saying it would be delivered on Friday). It actually wasn't delivered until today Monday. I understand that is not your fault, but it just shows how unreliable Australia Post is after all it was only coming from Sydney. Considering I ordered some parts from Rapid online in the UK on a Friday lunchtime and it arrived on my doorstep on Monday Morning. There you go. Kind Regards Stewart McManus
Arduino MegaBy: Terry Gliddon on 9 January 2017Aus Electronics Direct provided me with a quality product in good time and at a very competitive price and I will definitely be using their services again for all the additional peripherals I will need as I learn all about this Arduino development board.
