The Arduino Due is a microcontroller board based on the Atmel SAM3X8E ARM Cortex-M3 CPU. It is the first Arduino board based board to be released based on a 32-bit ARM core microcontroller. The Arduino Due is the same size and shares a pin layout with the Arduino Mega.
It has 54 digital input/output pins (of which 12 can be used as PWM outputs), 12 analogue inputs, 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), a 84MHz clock, an USB OTG capable connection, two DAC (digital to analogue) convertors, two TWI (two wire interfaces), a power jack, an SPI header, a JTAG header, a reset button and an erase button.Is the Arduino Due compatible with Arduino Mega shields?
The Arduino Due has been designed to be compatible with the majority of Arduino Mega shields and accessories. The Due can also have Arduino UNO shields plugged in using the sockets nearest to the USB connections.What is Arduino?
Arduino is an inexpensive tool for developing interactive objects that can detect various inputs and sensors to control a variety of lights, motors, or other physical outputs. It’s an open-source physical platform based on a simple microcontroller board – to which you can write software which controls the board and elements that are attached.How do I program an Arduino?
Arduino boards are programmed using either the Arduino IDE or Arduino Studio software. The programming tools for Arduino are available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
The Arduino IDE is the standard software to write and upload code to your Arduino. This is the tool recommended for beginner to intermediate users. Download it here: Click here for Arduino IDE
Arduino Studio is a tool which allows you to program your Arduino board. The Arduino Studio software has all the functionality of the Arduino IDE and additional functionality which makes it suitable for more advanced users. Arduino Studio can also be used in the cloud allowing you to program your Arduino from your computers web browser or smart phone. Download it here: Click here for Arduino Studio
The programming language for the Arduino is designed to be easy to learn without limiting people from creating advanced projects. Arduino.org has numerous tutorials and projects to get you started with your Arduino board.
