1 The Board Arduino

Mega 2560 is a successor board of Arduino Mega, it is dedicated to applications and projects that require a large number of input-output pins and use cases which need high processing power. The Arduino® Mega 2560 comes with a much larger set of IOs when we compare it with a traditional Uno board considering the form factor of both boards.

1.1 Application Examples

Robotics: Featuring a high processing capacity, the Arduino Mega 2560 can handle extensive robotic applications. It is compatible with the motor controller shield that enables it to control multiple motors at an instance, thus making it perfect for robotic applications. The large number of I/O pins can accommodate many robotic sensors as well.

3D Printing: Algorithms play a significant role in the implementation of 3D printers. Arduino Mega 2560 has the power to process these complex algorithms required for 3D printing. Additionally, slight changes to the code are easily possible with the Arduino IDE and thus 3D printing programs can be customized according to user requirements.

Wi-Fi: Integrating wireless functionality enhances the utility of the applications. Arduino Mega 2560 is compatible with WiFi shields hence allowing wireless features for applications in 3D printing and Robotics.
