The Arduino Mega is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega1280. It has 54 digital input/output pins (of which 14 can be used as PWM outputs), 16 analog inputs, 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started. The Mega is compatible with most shields designed for the Arduino Duemilanove or Diecimila.

Arduino Mega uses ATmega 2560 microcontroller and you can download it’s datasheet from here.
ARDUINO IDE (SOFTWARE)
For programming Arduino board, you required a software named Arduino. You can download this free software from Arduino’s website or you can just goto that page by clicking here.
GETTING STARTED WITH ARDUINO
Watch out this video and also watch out his episodes on Arduino to become expert in Arduino. Still if you have any doubt you can definitely ask me through mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
1) SMART MANDIR
2) INTERNET SPEED-O-METER
This project is done using Arduino and ESP8266 wifi module.
3) FETCHING DATA FROM ANY WEBSITE
I made this project using Arduino Board,ESP8266 01 wifi module and TFT touch screen
4) Measuring IR Remote’s Protocol,Frequency and Time period using Arduino and TSOP
