Our new very powerful ATMega Controller is now available. This controller includes the high performance, fast throughput, and a huge 128k of flash program memory Atmel ATMega128 Microcontroller. Ideal for the most complex of tasks, this unit is loaded with a massive amount of I/O points making the controller perfect as a main board for large embedded applications.
The board includes in-circuit program download for easy updates and program changes. This can be done with the controller in place, or on-site. The programmer, the ET-AVR ISP is available separately. All port pins on the microcontroller are brought out to standard IDCC Headers for easy connection. A standard 14-pin LCD connection is also available for character LCD's. Two UARTs are included as standard on the microcontroller for computer interfacing and data transfer. A MAX232 is included for level shifting of the UART signal, these are connected to standard polarized headers for a simple RS232 connection to your computer or other embedded controller. A reset button is mounted on the board together with the necessary rectifier for the power supply together with a power-on LED. All necessary crystals and support components for the microcontroller are pre-installed and the board is delivered ready to run.
The ATMega Controller is based on the new ATMega128 microcontroller from Atmel® . This microcontroller is one of the most powerful currently available in the market. Included within the microcontroller is a massive 128k of Flash Program Memory, enabling easy rewriting and a huge storage space for large programs. The microcontroller also includes 4kbytes of RAM and EEPROM, allowing a large temporary storage area for data values and also for permanent values to be retained when the power is disconnected from the board. An eight channel 10-bit A/D convertor is included, making the system ideal for reading real-world and analog data. A real-time counter, together with a large number of timers are also ava
