This is RAMBo v1.4. The RAMBo board is an all in one 3D printer motherboard. It is a full remix of our RAMPS design with the Arduino MEGA and stepper drivers all on one integrated PCB. That is where it got the name RAMBo - (R)epRap (A)rduino-(M)ega-compatible (M)other (Bo)ard.
RAMBo v1.4 - The major difference over the previous version is the integrated LCD connector for Smart LCD Controllers. The EXT2 and SPI headers were re-arranged to remove the need for an adapter. This change is backwards compatible with firmware for previous versions of Rambo that normally utilize the RamboLCD.
Major Features - 5 x integrated 1/16th microstep motor drivers, 5 PWM Mosfet outputs, 4 thermistor inputs, digital trimpot (no tiny knobs to tweak), SMPS supports hostless printing on power supply voltages from 10-24V DC, 3 independent fuse protected power rails, LUFA USB, high quality connectors, did I say hacker friendly ...
RAMBo is designed to work with the current RAMPS generation firmwares with minimal modifications to add firmware control of the digital trimpots and the microstep setting pins.
Please choose above if you prefer to receive a RAMBo assembled circuit board only, or if you require the entire kit. The circuit board will arrive pre-assembled, with all electronic components securely soldered to the PCB, ready for use. In the complete kit, you will receive the endstop switches/wire harnesses of your choice, two thermistor wire harnesses, plug connectors, USB cable, & we throw in gold connectors/headers for use on the motors & possible extra fan.

Firmware / Hardware Information -
Recommended Power supply 12V-24V DC, 16A+.
A preconfigured Marlin Firmware is preloaded onto the board. To re-flash this board, you can simply use the Arduino IDE and set board to "Arduino Mega 2560". There is also a Arduino plugin folder on github that exposes additional pins in the Arduino IDE.
Linux and Mac use CDC interface and have hardware driver built in.
