An expansion board with various peripheral devices


Figure 1

The DVK501 is an expansion board with various peripheral devices. It is designed to help you try out the full potential of the AVR seires MCUs and develope your prototype device easily.

10-pin Cables should be used between the BUS-A & BUS-B headers of the DVK501 and another board to setup hardware connection (as shown in the figure 1).

Note: the development board M16+ EX is not included in the price.
