Don’t limit your projects, think big, think MEGA! The Arduino Mega 2560 has been designed with bigger and more ambitious projects in mind. The large number of analog and digital pins, together with a larger memory makes it ideal for devices like 3D printers and other demanding applications. Backward compatibility with existing shields and sketches is provided, but other shields target the Mega specifically, exploiting the full potential of this board.
The Mega 2560 is a board based on the 8-bit AVR microcontroller ATmega2560 by Atmel. It has 54 digital input/output pins (of which 15 can be used as PWM outputs), 16 analog inputs, 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports). It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable. The Mega 2560 board is compatible with most shields designed for the Uno. To compare this board to the current, past or outdated boards see the Comparison Page.

Tired of your slim PS3 wasting electricity in standby mode? We designed a simple AC cable to allow you to turn the console power off so you dont waste dollars in electricity your not using.
Comes with FREE Molex to Sata Power Adapter and Bonus Wall Power Cable
This unit is great for powering your CK3 Pro or CK3 Lite so you do not need to plug it into your PC for power which makes it much easier!
100-240VAC (US/UK/EU) to 12v/5V DC Power Supply with 4 Pin Molex. This DC Power supply is a great addition to any PC techs toolkit. Hook up CK3's, fans, drives, cathodes or pretty much anything you want that has a Molex connector without having to take your PC apart.
Actual unit may be slightly different than the one pictured depending on the most current model available - features & functionality are identical. input: 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz,0.5A. Output: 12V-2A,5V-2A
Due to the power cord being different sockets for different countries, it is not supplied. It is a standard 3 pin power lead that is used on most PC's and electrical devices.
Please note: These adapters are originally made for powering hard drives / disc drives outside your computer so pin #2 is not grounded. Some devices (I.E cathodes) require pin 2 to be grounded. Please check your device before purchasing.
