October 25, 2012 – Mouser Electronics, Inc. today announced it is taking orders for the new Arduino Due Microcontroller Board from Arduino, based on the Atmel SAM3X8E ARM Cortex-M3 MCU.
The long-awaited Arduino Due Microcontroller Board is based on the 32-bit processor Atmel SAM3X8E ARM Cortex-M3 MCU, and improves all the standard Arduino functionalities, adding many new features. The Arduino Due offers 54 digital input/output pins (of which 16 can be used as PWM outputs, with selectable resolution), 12 analog inputs with 12 bits of resolution, 4 UARTs, two DAC outputs, an 84MHz crystal oscillator, two USB connections, a power jack, an ICSP header, a JTAG header, and a reset button. The maximum voltage that the I/O pins can provide or tolerate is 3.3V. The board has two micro USB connectors—one for debugging purposes and a second one capable of acting as a USB host, allowing external USB peripherals such as mouse, keyboards, smartphones, etc. to be connected to the Arduino Due. This exciting new addition to the Arduino family is now available for order, so visit http://www.mouser.com/arduino-due/ to place your order now.
