Arduino Mega or Mega 2560 ATmega1280

Hardware

Platform Atmel AVR: Atmel AVR 8-bit MCUs deliver a unique combination of performance, power efficiency and design flexibility. Optimized to speed time to market-and easily adapt to new ones-they are based on the industry’s most code-efficient architecture for C and assembly programming

Microcontroller ATMEGA1280
Frequency 16MHz
Flash 124KB
RAM 8KB
Vendor Arduino

Configuration

Please use megaatmega1280 ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

[env:megaatmega1280]
platform = atmelavr
board = megaatmega1280

You can override default Arduino Mega or Mega 2560 ATmega1280 settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest megaatmega1280.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

[env:megaatmega1280]
platform = atmelavr
board = megaatmega1280

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = atmega1280

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 16000000L

Debugging

PIO Unified Debugger - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.

Warning

You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions and configuration information.

You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

Arduino Mega or Mega 2560 ATmega1280 has on-board debug probe and IS READY for debugging. You don’t need to use/buy external debug probe.
