[Discontinued] Mega 2560 ATmega 16U2, Arduino Compatible
This is the new Arduino compatible Mega 2560. The new ATMega16U2 chip allows for faster transfer rates and more memory. No drivers needed for Linux or Mac
- Two new pins are 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 a not connected and is reserved for future purposes
- Works with all existing shields but also compatible with new shields that require the additional pins.
The SainSmart 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.

I prefer the SainSmart Arduino boards (especially this one) over the others I have tried. I have never had an issue with a SainSmart board. I also love the reasonable price for the US stocked units. I have never had to wait long to receive them.
The mega performed flawlessly. I really love it.
A well-built board. I was doing a project on a budget, this definitely is the best component for me. Although it is not an official Arduino board, I still like it as long as it do the trick. And it has been verified that it worked well in my project.
