What is Arduino Mega 2560 ?
The Mega 2560 is a micro controller board which is designed for more complex projects like 3D printers and robotics projects. It has
- 54 digital input/output pins – 15 can be used as PWM outputs
- 16 analog inputs
- 4 UARTs – referred to as universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter that translate data in asynchronous serial communication format
- a 16 MHz crystal oscillator – used to create an electrical signal with a precise frequency.
- a USB connection
- a power jack
- an ICSP header – referred to as in-circuit serial programming that used to programme micro controllers
- a reset button.
It contains everything needed to support the micro controller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.
