Arduino Mega ADK vs Arduino Mega 2560

Hi folks,

I'm in the process of building myself a REPRAP PRUSA 3D Printer and wondered if I should buy myself a standard Arduino Mega 2560 to control it or go with the Arduino Mega ADK - on the off-chance that I want to do some development using/with Android devices in the future.

What are the differences between these 2 boards?

Am I correct in assuming that they are functionally identical if running the REPRAP firmware?

Thanks in advance,


Hi Alex,

I am curious about the differences as well. I figured I would give this topic a ‘bump’ to the top in hopes of getting some feedback from the experts.

Were you able to find info else ware? Links??



I never did find out what the differences were; Since I bought a regular 2560 and uploaded the REPRAP firmware to it, I haven't had the time to look at it further.
