Okay, so, the MEGA 2560 has been out for a while and I am sure there is something new on the horizon but here is the catch. I am doing a reef controller and there is a LOT of support for the 2560. I would like to step it up to something with more memory as I plan to do a LOT of coding and speed is always a plus along with a touch screen. So, with that in mind, what has (if anything) the equivalent connections as the 2560 (or capable connections) and uses the same coding? It has to use the same coding as I am not a programmer nor really have the time, but, I can use snippets and adjust them as needed. There would be no way for me to learn new coding unless a 2 year old could understand it, lol.
Are there any microcontroller's that fit that bill or do I just stay with the 2560?
I have done some research and found what is called a "seeeduino" board. Looks about the same but has 25 more in/outs? I have not had time to read the datasheet but I know it has 25 more pins of something, lol.
