Arduino Mega (Atmega1280 – assembled) & Arduino Mega protoshield
By popular demand! We are now carrying the Mega. The Mega is basically a big brother to the Arduino Duemilanove (& similar), with many more pins, UARTs, PWMs, etc. If you’ve run out of pins on your Arduino or you need 128k of flash (compared to 32k!) you will find this a good upgrade!
This is an extra large protoshield designed by Arduino for the Mega. We include 2 sticks of 36 pin header, 5 8-pin female headers and a 6-pin female header to allow easy pluggin’
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
