* Choice of three SAM M0+ chips:
- SAMD21J (this is among the first SAM M0+ MCUs, also used in the Arduino Zero)
- SAML21J (low power features w/ on-chip buck converter, enhanced analog peripherals, crypto)
- SAMC21J (5V support on board, CAN instead of USB, Sigma-Delta and SAR ADCs)
- All chips available with up to 256KB FLASH and 32KB of SRAM
* All components were selected with low power use in mind
* XBEE / XBEE Pro form factor socket with support for high power radios (ie: LTE cellular modem)
* MicroSD card slot
* Motor controller / relay driver (with support for DC and stepper motors) up to 1.6A, 4V-16V
* Level shifter (which can also be used for servos)
* Optional serial (SPI) memory device: 128KB SRAM (with battery backup support on board), 64KB EEPROM, or 512KB FLASH
* Optional sensors: 3-axis accelerometer / 3-axis gyroscope with interrupt available, pressure sensor / temperature sensor
* 2A buck converter with input up to 16V with configurable output voltage
* Power multiplexer automatically selects between the buck converter and USB Vbus as a source
* Dual output switch can be used for host mode USB and/or an auxiliary output
* Current and voltage measurement of the external Vin source (with I2C and/or analog output supported)
* Two 3.3V linear regulators (250mA and 1.5A). The 1.5A regulator can be powered down
(MicroSD, XBee, and external devices can be connected to this rail).
* Two crystals, a button and an LED
* 55 solder jumpers for extreme flexibility. The power supply has several configurations
(ie: separate 5V and 3.3V rails or use buck to generate 3.6V and post-regulate this to 3.3V).
