Brainbox AVR is an enhanced Arduino platform developed by an electronics teacher as an educational board, but also suitable for hobby environments. No more cable spaghetti! Farewell all nasty connection problems with breadboards! Here all connections are made with rugged screw connections. Every input has its own 5-volt and GND connections. Four outputs supply up to 600 mA of current each, permitting four DC motors or a stepper motor to be driven directly. And much more...
This eductional board is based on the popular Arduino Leonardo with a powerful ATMEGA32 (16 MHz). It is compatible with existing Arduino shields and can be programmed with Arduino IDE.
