Genuino Zero sets a new standard in processing power for Genuino boards, with a 32-bit ARM processor running at three times the speed of the Uno. The Genuino Zero offers everything you need to release your creative potential: advanced audio and analog processing capabilities, low power consumption, and a real-time clock, all at a convenient price. Internet of Things, robotics applications, art installations, and other sophisticated projects will also benefit from the Zero's capabilities.
The Genuino Zero is powered by Atmel’s SAMD21 MCU, which features a 32-bit ARM Cortex® M0+ core, clocked at 48MHz. This board has six analog inputs that can be configured for 10 or 12 bit sampling and also offers a Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) with 10 bit resolution for true analog signal output. Using Genuino Zero with Atmel Studio, you can use Atmel’s Embedded Debugger (EDBG), which provides a full debug interface without the need for additional hardware, making it significantly easier to debug software. EDBG also supports a virtual COM port that can be used for device and bootloader programming. To compare this board to the current, past or outdated boards see the Comparison Page.
