The Arduino Leonardo employs a single ATMega32U4 MCU with a USB interface baked right in. Since no secondary USB-Serial converter IC is required, you can easily use the Leonardo to emulate arbitrary USB devices, such as a keyboard or mouse. The board has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz ceramic resonator, a USB micro B connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. You can learn more about the specifications of the Arduino Leonardo here.

Buy the Arduino Leonardo from NewarkSparkFun, Adafruit, or Amazon.
