The SparkFun RedBoard Turbo SAMD21 Development Board is a formidable alternative for to step up Arduino game from older 8-bit/16MHz microcontrollers . At its heart, the RedBoard Turbo uses the ATSAMD21G18, which is an ARM Cortex M0+, 32-bit microcontroller that can run at up to 48MHz. With an impressive 4MB of external flash memory and a UF2 (USB Flashing Format) bootloader, the RedBoard Turbo provides you with an economical and easy to use development platform if needing more power than the classic RedBoard.
The SparkFun RedBoard Turbo has been equipped with a USB interface for programming and power, a Qwiic connector, an RTC crystal, WS2812-based addressable RGB LED, 600mA 3.3V regulator, and a variety of other components. To power the RedBoard Turbo, just plug it into a USB port on computer via the micro-B port or directly into the wall with the 5V tolerant barrel jack. The SparkFun RedBoard Turbo is also equipped with a LiPo Battery connector (for a single-cell 3.7-4.2V litium-polymer battery). The MCP73831's charge current is configured by a resistor value between 66kΩ and 2kΩ, to charge the battery at a rate between 15mA and 500mA, respectively. By default, the board is configured to charge the battery at around 250mA. the layout meets the Arduino 1.0 footprint. standard including a separate SPI header and additional I2C header.
The RedBoard Turbo can even be flashed over the Mass Storage Class (MSC) just like a removable flash drive.With this bootloader, the RedBoard Turbo shows up on your computer as a USB storage device without having to install drivers. From the Arduino IDE, still need to select the correct port on your machine, but you can just as easily use another programming language such as Circuit Python or MakeCode.
Note: The barrel jack connection on the RedBoard Turbo has a lower input voltage than most Arduino development boards. Make sure that you are using a power supply below 6V. Please be aware that the RedBoard Turbo is also a 3.3V device and not a 5V one like the original RedBoard.
