Need an effective yet simple extension (32-bit)? There is no parallel to Arduino Zero when it comes to the performance enhancement of a board to make it more efficient for different projects. Arduino Zero is an exceptional product for all the programmers who need to learn more about the development of 32-bit applications. It is equally useful for IoT devices, high-tech automation, wearable technology, and robotics. Zero features SAMD21 MCU (from Atmel). ARM Cortex M0+ core (32-bit) makes it a perfect board extension. The impressive debug interface doesn’t require extra hardware support. Zero is the best choice for software-debug programming. The virtual COM, compatible with EDBG, makes it super-easy to program the bootloader.

Most of the Arduino/Genuino boards don’t support 3.3V but the case is different with Arduino Zero as it run at 3.3V. The input/output pins cannot stand over 3.3V so need to be careful of this aspect to keep the pins safe. Same condition applies to the shields. You mustn’t try any other shield that doesn’t support 3.3V.
Everything required to support the board is already mounted on it. All you need to do is to connect the board to the computer via micro-USB. Otherwise, you also have the options of using an AC-DC adapter for power supply.
