Mega 2560 Arduino follows Open-source principles, which means you can freely download the development environment and many associated resources.
Ideal for project work and often used in schools, teaching, motor control, robotics and similar applications; the Arduino platform allows for rapid application development using either Java (cross-platform) or Processing (a C derivative used to write sketches using Arduino IDE downloadable from Arduino.cc website.)
The Arduino Mega 2560 R3 is an open source precise microcontroller board Successor to the Arduino Mega based on the ATmega2560 SMD chip.The Mega 2560 R3 also adds SDA and SCL pins next to the AREF. In addition, there are two new pins 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. The Mega 2560 R3 works with all existing shields but can adapt to new shields which use these additional pins.
Input voltage should be limited to 6 ~ 12V, but if the voltage supplied is less than 6V, I / O port may not be supplied to a voltage of 5V, and therefore readings may become unstable. If the voltage is greater than 12V, the regulator device may overheat causing damage to the control board. It is therefore recommended that you supply between 6.5 and 12V, utilizing typical power supplies of 7.5V or 9V.
Mega 2560 is fully compatible with the Arduino software and has complete hardware compatibility with the Mega 2560 Arduino Shield high-performance processor and enough memory to handle even complex solutions.
This Board 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. Using the board is also very easy, simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with DC adapter or battery to get started. The Mega 2560 R3 board is compatible with most shields designed for Arduino/Genuino Uno and the former boards Duemilanove or Diecimila.
