Hello all,

Hoping I've found the correct area of the forum to post this. I'd like to purchase a board that can serve as a development canvas for arduino projects. I've done some searching around and probably the best looking one I've found is:

http://shop.avrvi.com/goods-362.html

(Translate to english, I think the page is natively Chinese)

My question is, would this board be arduino compatible? I see it utilizes the Atmega1280, that the old Arduino Mega used.

Also, in terms of reliability, should I trust this?

Thanks all for your help.

I believe Atmel sells boards similar to that one (lot's of built-in gadgets).  I believe Smiley Micros also has similar stuff.

You will very likely have to use a separate programmer.  Oh, wait.  Maybe not ... "On-board AVRISPMKII USB interface".

For Serial, it looks like you will need an RS-232 adapter for the PC.

It looks like they are using an "odd" frequency clock.  millis and its ilk will not be accurate.

You're on your own there.
