Alexan ACEduino MEGA 2560

The ACEduino Mega 2560 has a longer board that measures, 4 inches by 2.1 inches.  But the arrangement of the female headers/male headers on the boards with respect to the microcontroller pin outs corresponds to the available pins. Thus, shields used for the ACEduino can also be used for the MEGA without modifications.

ACEduino MEGA 2560 is the “big brother” of our ACEduino 328.

It has similar functionalities with the ACEduino 328, but is designed to be more

powerful as it now has 256KB of flash memory– that is EIGHT TIMES the

memory size of the ACEduino 328.
