You mean using the mega board files?

People have made a number of boards using the ATmega 1280 or 2560 chip (or just other ATmega SMD chips which have less pins).

I have not seen any boards produced 'at home' with the ATmega 1280 on but I have seen other SMD chips done on home-made circuit boards.

So... what exactly is the question? smiley-wink

Thanks for your response. Basically I want a board that I can get etched on a milling machine, which has the atmega1280 chip and which I can run in the arduino environment. Any eagle files in the public domain that I could use?

How accurate's your milling machine?

So basically you're looking for a single layer board. I don't think I've seen any...

I can etch 2 layer myself but it takes so much time just to make 1 board and its not the cheapest, I used a mega clone board (yes made in china and cost about £3) then built with custom components e.g larger 2560 chip  smiley

check my post out for images of the build:
