Here we have an ATmega1284p kit. If you have ever needed more pins on your Arduino, more ram because your sketches have run out of memory, more UARTS, more EEPROM while logging data, then this kit is for you.
You could opt for the Arduino Mega 2560 but it costs a lot especially if you are going to embed your Arduino Mega into your project. So that's where the ATmega1284p comes in. All the extra Pins and memory, at a fraction of the price.
Our ATmega128p kits come fully bootloaded with the Mighty Optiboot bootloader and we provide a full build tutorial in our "how to" section. We will take you through building the kit, as well as uploading sketches.
The bare bones kit includes all the components needed to have a working Arduino ATmega1284 but does lack USB interface and power regulation, you would need a regulated 5V power supply to run this circuit. We offer kits with either the FTDI or CP2102 USB/TTL converter and these units allow for USB communication and USB power to the ATmega1284.
We also provide a range of options for this kit, from bare bones to full kit with breadboard and USB / TTL converter.
