Arduino Due

  • Availability:
  • Product Code: ARDUINO-DUE
  • Warranty Period: 12 months
I am sure you heard that Arduino is coming out with ARM based controller. Yes, you are right, the Arduino DUE is finally here. Cytron is carrying it, official and originally from Arduino Italy. The Due is Arduino first ARM-based Arduino development board. It is based on a powerful 32bit Atmel AT91SAM3XE8 CortexM3 ARM microcontroller. You will still write program using the Arduino IDE, but different version (for the time being). It increases the computing power available to Arduino users keeping the language as compatible as possible so that many programs will be migrated in a matter of minutes!

The Arduino Due has 54 digital input/output pins (of which 12 can be used as PWM outputs), 12 analog inputs, 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), an 84 MHz clock, a USB-OTG capable connection, 2 DAC (digital to analog), 2 TWI, a power jack, an SPI header, a JTAG header, a reset button and an erase button. There are also some cool features like DACs, Audio, DMA , an experimental multi tasking library and more.

To compile code for the ARM processor, you will need the latest version of the Arduino IDE: v1.5 (After a period of testing and debugging this will replace the 1.0.1 IDE altogether). You will need the USB Micro-B cable to load program, please get it.

Because of the limitations of system voltage imposed by the Atmel SAM3X8E, Arduino shields that are based on the 5v models will not work properly. All the shields that fully implement the Arduino R3 layout are compatible straight away (like the Arduino WiFi shield and Ethernet Shield) but other shields might not be compatible. Be careful when you are plugging stuff in!

Note: Unlike other Arduino boards, the Arduino Due board  runs  at 3.3V. The maximum voltage that the I/O pins can tolerate is 3.3V. Providing higher voltages, like 5V to an I/O pin could damage the board. Do visit the Arduino DUE page from for more information.

1st Look of Arduino DUE:
What is maximum voltage for analog signal? ( Abdul Rahman, 18/03/2018 )
Hi, by default it is 3.3V. However you can utilize AREF pin to measure ADC up to 5V. You can refer Arduino Reference for more detail.
when this arduino will be restock? ( hafiz wahab, 07/11/2017 )
Hi, we are not sure when it be restocked, because currently it is out of stock in Arduino store. You can click on Notify Me and get the notification when it is restocked. Thanks.
do you provide manual for both hardware and software, and how to download code to the uC?
( sofiee, 03/05/2017 )
Hi, you can refer to Arduino page for more info. If you have more question you can go to our technical forum as this section is only for short inquiry. Thanks.
Hello, what are the compulsory components / devices needed for Arduino Due? Besides, this Arduino Due got warrantly? How do I claim back this Arduino Due if got problem? Thanks ( Foong Lik Wei, 23/03/2015 )

You will need the USB MicroB cable to power and load program. The rest is optional and it depends on what you need. Yes, there is warranty if there is factory defect, not misuse by user :) You can always report defect problem under support tab in our website, our technical team will follow up with.

when will this product available again? ( Hisyam, 20/03/2015 )


It will ready after 1 Week.

I'm interested on buying this board (Arduino Due). When is the stock available? I've been waiting for month. ( Qamarul, 09/01/2015 )



Sorry for late reply. The product is temporary out of stock becuase manufacturer do not have stock. Arduino Itali still cannot estimate when the item will be ready. We will update the stock status once it ready. Thanks.

i'm interest in buying this product. How long it will take for delivery process? ( Danial, 08/12/2014 )


We will ship the product within 1-2 working day once received payment. Thanks.

Does this comes together with the USB cable and components? ( Lim Soon Yin, 28/11/2014 )

Nop, it does not come with the USB micro-B cable. You will need to buy it separately.
