Overview : It is designed to fit the entire electronics needed for a RepRap in one small package for low cost. RAMPS interfaces an Sainsmart Mega with the powerful Sainsmart MEGA platform and has plenty room for expansion. The modular design includes plug in stepper drivers and extruder control electronics on an Sainsmart MEGA shield for easy service, part replacement, upgrade-ability and expansion. Additionally, a number of Sainsmart expansion boards can be added to the system as long as the main RAMPS board is kept to the top of the stack. Version 1.4 uses surface mount capacitors and resistors to further cover edge issue cases. As of version 1.3 in order to fit more stuff RAMPS is no longer designed for easy circuit home etching. If you want to etch your own PCB either get version 1.25 or Generation_7_Electronics. Version 1.25 and earlier are “1.5 layer” designed boards (i.e. it”s double sided board, but one of layers can easily be replaced with wire-jumpers) that is printable on your RepRap with the etch resist pen method, or home fabbed with toner transfer. This board is mostly based on Adrian”s Pololu_Electronics and work by Tonok. Copper etch resists methods suggested by Vik. Also inspired by Vik”s work with EasyDrivers. circuit design based mostly on Adrian”s Pololu_Electronics Joaz at RepRapSource.com supplied initial pin definitions and many design improvements. Much inspiration, suggestions, and ideas from Prusajr, Kliment, Maxbots, Rick, and many others in the RepRap community. Package Content : 1 x 3D Printer Controller.

Sainsmart RAMPS 1.4 is a Mega Pololu Shield, or RAMPS for short, designed to
fit the entire electronics needed for a RepRap in one small package for low
cost. RAMPS interfaces an Mega with the powerful Arduino MEGA platform and has
plenty room for expansion. The modular design includes plug in stepper drivers
and extruder control electronics on an Arduino MEGA shield for easy service,
part replacement, upgrade-ability and expansion.
Sainsmart Mega2560 R3 is an ATmega2560 as core microcontroller development board
itself has 54 groups digital I/O input/output terminal (14 groups do PWM
outputs), 16 sets of simulation than the input side, group 4 UARTs (hardware
serial ports), using the 16 MHz crystal oscillator. With the bootloader,
download the program directly via USB without having to go through other external writer. Supply part of the optional USB power, or as an external power using the AC-to-DC adapter and battery. Arduino development IDE interface is
based on open-source principles, allows you to free download for use in project
work, school teaching, motor control, interactive works.
Sainsmart A4988 driver is a carrier board or breakout board for Allegro’s A4988
DMOS Microstepping Driver with Translator and Overcurrent Protection by Pololu; we therefore recommend careful reading of the A4988 datasheet before using this product. This stepper motor driver lets you control one bipolar stepper motor at up to 2 A output current per coil.

Added a small function which is LED backgroud light control circuit to smart
controller , with shorting the pins to decide the LED turn on all the time or
turn on 30 seconds and than turn off automaticly.IF you used to start the
printing jobs at night and get the parts at the next morning , that means with
the new modification LCD back light will not annoying you any more ,you can make
the time of light turn on longer or shorter by adjust the TRIMM R4 100K form 10s
to 2mins. Hope you will like that . This controller is 100% compaitble with
original design .That mean you can use the original RAMPS adpter.
