Description:The Pololu A-Star 32U4 Micro is a general-purpose programmable module based on Atmel’s ATmega32U4 AVR microcontroller, which has 32 KB of flash program memory, 2.5 KB of RAM, and built-in USB functionality. Onboard features of the A-Star (abbreviated A*) include a 16 MHz resonator, a USB Micro-B connector, an in-system programming (ISP) header, and a pair of indicator LEDs. A voltage regulator and power selection circuit allow the board to be powered from either USB or an external 5.5 V to 15 V source, while a resettable PTC fuse on the USB VBUS supply and reverse protection on VIN help protect it from accidental damage.

The A-Star 32U4 Micro breaks out 15 general-purpose I/O lines along two rows of pins, including 7 usable as PWM outputs and 8 usable as analog inputs. It fits all this into a 20-pin dual in-line package (DIP) measuring only 1″ × 0.6″ (even smaller than competing ATmega32U4 boards like the Teensy 2.0 and Pro Micro), and its 0.1″ pin spacing makes the A* easy to use with solderless breadboards, perfboards, and 0.1″-pitch connectors.



Features:
  • Dimensions: 1″ × 0.6″ (1.05″ × 0.6″ including USB Micro-B connector)
  • Programmable 16 MHz Atmel ATmega32U4 AVR microcontroller
    • 32 KB flash (4 KB used by bootloader, leaving 28 KB available for user program by default)
    • 2.5 KB SRAM
    • 1 KB EEPROM
    • Native full-speed USB (12 Mbps)
  • Preloaded with Arduino-compatible bootloader (no external programmer required)
  • Many I/O lines in a small package
    • 15 general-purpose I/O pins available along the sides of the board
    • 3 additional I/O pins available on ISP header
    • 7 pins can be configured as hardware PWM outputs
    • 8 pins can be configured as analog inputs
  •  2 user-controllable LEDs
  •  Can be powered from USB or external 5.5 V to 15 V source on VIN
  •  PTC fuse on VBUS supply
  •  Reverse-voltage protection on VIN supply
  •  6-pin ISP header for use with an external programmer

Note: 4 KB of the MCU's 32 KB of flash memory is used by the pre-installed USB bootloader. All 32 KB is available when programming via the ISP header rather than the bootloader. 

Arduino Compatibility:

The A-Star 32U4 ships with a preloaded Arduino compatible bootloader (which uses 4 KB of flash memory, leaving 28 KB available for the user program). We provide a software add-on that enables the board to be easily programmed from the Arduino environment. The A-Star 32U4 uses the same microcontroller as the Arduino Leonardo and Arduino Micro and runs at the same frequency, making it just as powerful. Although the larger boards offer a few more I/O pins, the A-Star 32U4 Micro fits in an area half that of the Arduino Micro, and it takes up only 11% as much area as a standard full-size Arduino!

Pinout:

This diagram identifies the I/O and power pins on the A-Star 32U4 Micro. For more information about the ATmega32U4 microcontroller on this board.

Printed on the A* circuit board are indicators that you can use to quickly identify each pin’s capabilities: a triangle next to the pin means it can be used as an analog input, and a square wave symbol under the pin number means it can be used as a PWM output.

The board can either be powered directly from the USB 5 V supply or from a separate 5.5 V to 15 V source on the VIN pin, which is reduced to 5 V by a 100 mA low-dropout (LDO) regulator; you can access this 5 V supply through the 5V power output pin. Additionally, the ATmega32U4 contains an internal 3.3 V regulator whose output is available on the 3V3 pin. Current drawn from the 3V3 output should not exceed about 50 mA, and when the board is being powered through VIN, the sum of the 5V output current, 3V3 output current, GPIO output current, and current used by the board itself (typically about 25 mA) should not exceed 100 mA.

Included hardware:

  • 1x A-Star 32U4 Micro base board
  • 1×20-pin breakaway 0.1″ male header: To use the board with perfboards, breadboards, or 0.1″ female connectors.
  • 2×3 header: Allows external programming of the microcontroller through the AVR ISP interface, such as with our USB AVR programmer.

Note: This product requires a USB A to Micro-B cable (not included) to connect to a computer.
