Index-1

NEW PRODUCT – Arduino Mega Android Accessory Development Kit (ADK) Board – ATmega2560 ADK. Fast track your Android phone hardware development or just design cell-phone robots with the Arduino ADK! The Arduino ADK is a microcontroller board based on the powerful ATmega2560 (datasheet). It has a USB host interface to connect with Android based phones, and a power supply boost converter to charge up the phone from DC power while its plugged into the ADK

The Mega ADK is compatible with all of Android’s Accessory Development Kit examples and also acts like the Arduino Mega you already love to use. 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. Now its easy to connect any sort of sensor, LED, motor, etc to your Android based phones.

The ADK is based on the Mega 2560. For information on using the board with the Android OS, see (Google’s ADK documentation).

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.

  1. Excited to see this. I’m kinda looking for a cheap phone or tablet to start working with too. Any suggestions?

  2. @George- Here are some device suggestions on this site that should work w/ADK: http://rodrigocalvo.com/arduino/index.php?title=Main_Page

    The Nexus S for sure works, too.

    If you get one that doesn’t work, you could try your luck with this: https://github.com/ezterry/manifest-gingerbread-DS/issues/32
