Fishino MEGA is the second board of Fishino family. It’s a board 100% compatible with the famous Arduino MEGA, but with many add-ons which greatly enhance its capabilities. An important detail of Fishino MEGA is the ability to be powered by a single cell LiPo battery, which gets automatically charged when another supply is available.
100 % compatible with Arduino Mega
Fishino MEGA is based on Arduino platform, keeping all of its features and adding new ones. This guarantees that all Arduino’s shields and libraries will work with no changes on Fishino MEGA.
High performance switching power supply
All Fishino MEGA’s power supply stages are in high performance switching technology. You can power it by a LiPo battery, the USB connector or the external supply plug with a voltage range from 3.5 Volt to over 20 Volt without the thermal problems that are common to original Arduino MEGA boards, even when powered by just 12 Volt.
Can be powered by a single cell LiPo battery
Fishino MEGA has a battery supply module on board with chager for single cell LiPo batteries. It can be used for your mobile projects.
Integrated WiFi module
Fishino MEGA has a performant WiFi module on board, which firmware has been tailored by us. With Fishino you’ll be able to connect to an existing WiFi infrastructure or build your own one.
MicroSD interface on board
The ability to use a readly available microSD card brings Fishino the ability to work on big data sets, build small web servers and portable data loggers.
RTC module on board
The integration of an RTC (Real Time Clock) module with backup battery allows Fishino to keep correct time even in case of power failures.
The addition of a shifted pinheader connector solves the well known Arduino problem of breadboard and prototyping boards incompatibility. Fishino MEGA allows you to prototype your shields on a common breadboard while keeping at the same time the compatibility with existing shields.
