ATmega2560 or 1206 processor
3.2" TFT touch Display
Ethernet
SD Card
Usb Coms
RTC Clock
Xbee
12V and USB power
maybe some relays

:) ATmega1280
Is what i mean
:)

Graynomad

Both the 1280 are 2560 are about $10-15 so there's no point using the 1280 I think.

But I would also question using either these days when you can buy most ARM chips for a lot less. How about doing a clone of the Due?

Oh so how much are the Due chips i had a looky on ebay. not many but cost a bit more than the 1280 and 2560
im now waiting on my new PCBs to be made and sent to me after making some changes its V1.1 and in red this time i hate the green PCBs so ill be building them up when i get them and do some test on them . i just orderd heaps of parts and more 328 SMD chips cant wait.
:) :)
I dont know when ill start the new design im just so so busy maybe next year but have orderd some parts for it aswell

Graynomad

The SAM3X8 is about $13 from Newark (in stock) and < $10 form people with no stock.

So that's on a par with the Megas.
