    Arduino Mega compatible! This bundle includes USB-serial-adapter, serial-to-DragonFly cable and three 11-pin IO cables. The schematic and signal reference chart are downloadable below.

    This ATmega1280 based controller board features 128K of flash for your most demanding applications. Measuring only 80mm x 40mm, the board is smaller than a credit card and two of these boards can fit in the palm of your hand.

    We pinned out all 86 of the IO pins on this chip (but only 56 are used by the Arduino Firmware). The board features an on-board 16MHz crystal. The board is powered by either and external 5V or 3.3V power source. It features 11 8-bit I/O ports (only 6 on Port G), a 6-pin ISP RobiCon connector for programming (adapter optional) as well as a Molex 3-pin power connector (the third pin is reset).

    Drive up to 16 RC servos with this board. Perfect for Robotics, Hexapod. The "Naked" version of this board (no connectors soldered in) makes this board ultra thin and lightweight, making it perfect for UAV development.

    Arduino Mega

    We are working on a kit that will make this board software compatible with Arduino Mega (which uses the ATmega1280 chip). Our kit will include the board with Arduino firmware already loaded as well as a USB/Serial adapter. We've also got Arduino running on the 2560 model and submitted the source code changes to the Arduino community. For now we will pre-install Arduino firmware upon request.

    Bundle Includes:

  • One - DragonFly ATmega 1280 Board
  • One - USB-Serial TTL Adapter Board w/ USB Cable
  • Three 11-pin Molex to Female Headers 5P/6P, 10cm
  • One - 6-pin Molex to 3-pin/2-pin Molex, 10cm (for USB-Serial Adapter)
  • Recommended Cable Options:

  • 11-pin Molex to Bare Wires, 10cm
  • 11-pin Molex to 11-pin Molex, 10cm
  • 11-pin Molex to 11-pin Molex, 20cm
  • USB-A to 3-pin Molex, 5.5ft., Power Cable
  • 6-pin Molex to 6-pin In-System-Programmer (use with Atmel MKII Programmer)

  • This board is also available in a "Naked" Edition, lighter, thinner, and no connectors soldered in.
