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 To compare this board to the current, past or outdated boards see the Comparison Page.
Genuino Zero and Arduino Zero share the same components, characteristics and quality of manufacturing. They are actually the same board under a different brand. Depending on the area of the world where you live you’ll be able to purchase an Arduino Zero or a Genuino Zero. Learn more.
