SainSmart Due

This site has been great fun, but it has run its course, and it is time to move on. Please get what you want from the site before January 1, 2020. Some pages will move to another site but most will go away.

SainSmart Due

The SainSmart Due has all of the features of the Arduino Due with a price that is about $10.00 less. The MCU is the Atmel SAM3X8E, which is an ARM Cortex-M3 running at 84MHz. It has 512kB flash, and 96kB RAM. The board is, like the Arduino Due, 3.3V only. Applying 5V signals to any I/O pin can, and probably will, damage the MCU. The Due is the most powerful Arduino by far, and the SainSmart Due is a faithful reproduction.
