More info

The Arduino Due is one of the most powerful boards in the Arduino range, and is the ideal solution for Makers, hobbyists, artists and electronics enthusiasts who want to step up their game with a 32bit, 84MHz CortexM3 ARM microcontroller. This powerful clock speed, in conjunction with a wide range of other upgrades and the ability to be backwards-compatible with all of your previous Arduino sketches, makes it a perfect upgrade from any of the previous boards.

Some of the exciting features of the Arduino Due include 54 digital input/output pins (12 of which are enabled for PWM), 12 analog inputs, 4 UART hardware serial ports, 2 DAC (digital to analog) inputs, a USB-OTG capable connection, 2 TWI buses, a JTAG header, an SPI header, a power jack, a reset button and an erase button – Everything it needs to run not only your previous projects, but an almost infinite number of more advanced and even more exciting projects.

Bear in mind, however, that even though this board has backwards compatibility in terms of firmware and coding, the lower operating voltage of 3.3V DC on the I/O Pins means that it won’t be compatible with previous 5V Shields. This is important to remember, as plugging in a 5V Shield could damage the board. However, with that being said, all of the Arduino Shields that already implemented the R3 layout, such as the WiFi Shield and Ethernet Shield, will be compatible with the Due and will cause no problems at all.

General Uses and Applications

The Arduino Due is certainly a powerful board, and as such offers a lot more versatility since it can be the brains of very complicated projects. And rather than simply building small devices or boxes that essentially automate various tasks like Tweeting, with an Arduino Due you will be able to build entire systems. The following are just a few examples of the exciting projects that a Due is capable of:

  • Designing an RFID building access system, with permanent access granted to residents and temporary access granted to visitors via Wi-Fi.
  • Crafting a voice and keyboard synthesizer that doubles as an electric guitar pedal – providing you with all the tools you need to be the next one-man-synth-band.
  • Building a room-scale “Spaceship Bridge” for playing spaceship simulators like Artemis or Quintet cooperatively with friends – while being immersed in a believable sci-fi environment.

With so much power at its disposal, the Arduino Due is far more capable than its predecessors and outclasses them in many ways. So if you are looking to upscale your Arduino projects and are eager for a more power board to run your complex systems, the Due is certainly a great investment.
