Product Description

The Arduino Due is a microcontroller board based on the Atmel SAM3X8E ARM Cortex-M3 CPU. It is the first Arduino board based on a 32-bit ARM core microcontroller. It has 54 digital input/output pins (of which 12 can be used as PWM outputs), 12 analog inputs, 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), a 84 MHz clock, an USB OTG capable connection, 2 DAC (digital to analog), 2 TWI, a power jack, an SPI header, a JTAG header, a reset button and an erase button.

The board contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a micro-USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started. The Due is compatible with all Arduino shields that work at 3.3V and are compliant with the 1.0 Arduino pinout. Equivalent to Sparkfun DEV-11589.

NOTE This is a 3.3V board. If you want to use a shield from an Arduino Uno (etc) use a translator shield, or level converter modules for direct connections.

Configuring the Arduino IDE for your new Due or compatible board

Later versions of the Arduino IDE do not arrive pre-installed with all board types. So if you don't have "Arduino Due" in your Tools>Board menu, then you need to take the following steps.

Open the Arduino IDE, and select Tools>Board>Board Manager... 

Type "Arduino" into the search field, and after a moment the "Arduino SAM Boards" option should appear, along with an internal drop-down IDE version selector:


Make sure the drop-down matches your IDE version number, then click the Install button. The Arduino IDE will then download and install the new board definitions.


Finally you will then have the Arduino Due in your Boards menu, for example:
