SainSmart Mega 2560

This site has been great fun, but it has run its course, and it is time to move on. Please get what you want from the site before January 1, 2020. Some pages will move to another site but most will go away.

SainSmart Mega 2560

The SainSmart Mega 2560 is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega2560. It has 54 digital input/output pins (of which 14 can be used as PWM outputs), 16 analog inputs, 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button.

The Mega 2560 is a clone of the Arduino Mega 2560, and like other SainSmart clones, is well made. It is not an R3, with the v1.0 footprint.
