Alxduino Due is a microcontroller board based on Atmel SAM3X8E CPU.
It is an Alxduino based on 32-bit ARM core. It has 54 digital IO ports
(12 of which can be used for PWM output), 12 analog input ports, 4 channels
UART hardware serial port, 84 MHz clock frequency, one USB OTG interface,
two DACs (analog to digital conversion), two TWIs, one power socket,
one SPI interface, one JTAG interface, one reset button and one erase button.
Different from other Alxduino, the working voltage of Alxduino due is 3.3V.
The IO port can carry a voltage of 3.3V. If you use a larger voltage, such as 5V to an IO port,
you may burn the chip.
The circuit board already contains various components required for control operation.
You only need to connect to the computer via USB or connect to the power socket via
an AC-DC adapter and battery to start the controller. Alxduino due is compatible with
the Alxduino expansion board that works at 3.3V and the pin arrangement conforms to
the 1.0 Alxduino standard.
Advantages of ARM core
The Due using 32-bit ARM core is more powerful than other Alxduino using 8-bit AVR core in the past.
The obvious differences are:
The 32-bit core can process 32-bit data in one clock;
84Mhz CPU clock frequency;
96 KBytes of SRAM;
512 KBytes Flash;
A DMA controller, it can reduce the pressure of the CPU when doing a lot of calculations.
