This is an advanced 40 pin AVR Development Board. The development board provides an easy and a low cost way to develop projects on a 40 pin AVR microcontrollers.
Optionally available with this board is a Atmega32 microcontroller with a serial bootloader. The bootloader enables the microcontroller to be programmed directly by a PC from AVRStudio without the need for any expensive hardware programmer. Just connect the board to your PC with a serial cable(sold separately) and you can start programming the microcontroller. If you wish to program the microcontroller through USB using the bootloader, you can use a USB to Serial converter.
This board is perfect if you are just starting out with AVR programming and also if you want a tried and tested board for building advanced projects based on it. It is also suited for people who have just started out with embedded programming.
The board is built upon high quality FR-4(1.5 mm) with a green solder mask and a clear and legible white legend.
Onboard MAX232 interface circuit for easy communication with a computer and other serial devices(GPS modules, GSM Modems, etc).
Comes with a motor driver(L293) which can control two speed and direction of two DC motors or one stepper motor.
Comes with one ULN2803 which can be used to drive relays, stepper motors, etc.
Comes with a crystal oscillator circuit
On board 16x2 LCD connector with brightness control for LCD
4 Digit Segment Multiplexed Display
8 LED array
RS 232 Serial Interface with DB9 connector
2 K Bytes I2C serial EEPROM
8 bit ADC
4*4 matix keyboard
8 switch array
On board regulated 5V
On board On/Off switch
Pull up resistor for PORT0
Port extensions for all ports
The packaged included a serial cable, CD and a manual
The included CD contains tutorials to get started, sample codes and demo projects.
Note: Due to a temporary unavailability of the Atmega32, the Atmega16 will be shipped in place of it. The two are completely compatible apart from a few memory differences.
