Sony's Spresense is a compact development board based on the power-efficient multicore microcontroller CXD5602. It enables developers to build IoT applications quickly and is supported by the Arduino IDE as well as the more advanced NuttX based SDK.

The board features integrated GPS - The embedded GNSS with support for GPS, QZSS and GLONASS enable applications where tracking is required. The multicore microcontroller is powered by the company's CXD5602 microcontroller (ARM Cortex-M4F x six cores), with a clock speed of 156MHz.

The company's Spresense camera module board features a 5Mpixel image sensor with onboard encoder for pictures in JPEG, RAW, Y/C or RGB format. It connects directly to the Spresense main board through a dedicated parallel interface.

The size of the unit is 24mm x 25mm, offering pixels size of 2608 (H) x 1960 (V) which is approximately 5.11Mpixels. The operation voltage is DC 3.7V and I/O voltage DC 1.8V.
