Atmega2560
16MHz
Arduino bootloader programmable via FT232 USB
PTC Fuse
16MHz
Fully assembled



Contact me if you are interested.

I see you followed the official arduino mega design in that you don't breakout 16 of the I/O pins, is there a reason you did that?

Hi Lefty

The main reason is to follow the Arduino standard but it is also a design issue. I can't see any reson to have more than 64 i/o on this small breadboard.

I understand that, but I'm always somewhat disappointed when a module/board supplier doesn't allow the user access to a chips full complement of features. I understand that design decisions almost always have to make trade-off decisions at times, however I will usually pick the design that allow full access, as when I selected the Seeeduino mega1280 board over the original arduino mega1280 board for just that reason.

We are actually from Sweden but we give prices in Euro so it's easier for everyone to calculate ;)

I have made a website for our two pcb's on http://www.expansionboard.org. I will post updates and some info about us later on.

This looks very interesting. How many serial ports does it have?

Hello Rudi.

This board has all of the 4 UART from the AtMega2560. So basically you have 5 UART including SoftwareSerial.
