NEW PRODUCT – Arduino Mega Android Accessory Development Kit (ADK) Board – ATmega2560 ADK

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).

  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
