1. SunFounder Mercury is totally compatible with the official Arduino Mega2560, with also ATmega2560 as processor, the same Optiboot bootloader as Mega2560, thus programmed with Arduino IDE.
2. Uses FTDI232R for USB-to-serial and Type-C USB Port, more stable and reliable.
3. All I/O ports with two pins (male and female), free to use - just plug Dupont wires regardless of M or F.
Operating Voltage: 5V, Input Voltage: 7-12V (preferred 9V).
4. Adds a 5V power switch for convenience.
- Product Description
SunFounder Mercury board is totally compatible with the official Arduino Mega2560, with also ATmega2560 as the processor, the same Optiboot bootloader as Uno.
Also it has 54 digital I/Os pins, 16 analog inputs, 256KB program storage, 16MHz crystal oscillator, etc.
Features that make it unique: beautiful red PCB, parallel yellow and red pins, colorful design; uses FTDI232R for USB-to-serial; adopts Type-C, so far the only USB port that supports reversible plug orientation; all I/O ports with two pins (male and female), free to use - just plug Dupont wires regardless of M or F; adds a 5V power switch to control the board power, which may be expected by mass hobbyists (switch off the board when not in use, avoiding frequent plugging); reset button at the board side for convenience; Atmega2560 Microcontroller is packaged in patch which can save much space.
