SKU: ARD-004 - Mfg Part Number: A000062
The Arduino Due is a powerful 32bit microcontroller based on an 84MHz ARM CortexM3 chipset. This board is far more powerful than standard Arduinos but is still compatible with the Arduino IDE. The Due also has considerably more SRAM and memory for code storage so it is ideally suited for more complex projects requiring larger programs.
The Due is programmed using the Arduino IDE software, which is freely available from the Arduino website. The software is used to write code which is then uploaded to the Arduino and stored internally so it can run on its own. The software, documentation, and wide variety of tutorials available make this a great choice for anyone looking to get into the world of programming and electronics.
The board has two USB “micro” ports. The programming port is used for programming the Due while the Naitve USB port can be used as a USB host port and allows devices like keyboards, mice, and smartphones to be connected to the Due. The input and output pins of the Due differ from standard Arduinos as they operate on 3.3V logic. Connecting 5VDC components could cause damage to the board! There are 54 digital pins, 12 12-bit analog inputs, 2 12-bit analog outputs, 2 TWI(I2C) ports, SPI, JTAG, and 4 hardware serial ports.
To get the Due up and running you will need a Windows / Mac / Linux computer with a USB port and the Arduino IDE software installed (Version 1.5 or newer) . To connect the Arduino to your computer a USB micro cable is required.
