High performance board for Pro Maker and industrial markets

29-07-2020 | Mouser Electronics | Subs & Systems

Mouser now stocks the Arduino Portenta H7, the first high-performance, industry-rated board in the Arduino Pro platform.

The board is based on a dual-core STMicroelectronics STM32H747 microcontroller that allows the board to concurrently run high-level code along with real-time tasks. The processor’s 480MHz Arm Cortex-M7 core and 240MHz Arm Cortex M4 core communicate by a Remote Procedure Call mechanism that enables each processor to call functions on the other processor seamlessly. Both processors share all of the in-chip peripherals. They are able to run Arduino sketches on top of the Arm Mbed operating system, native Mbed applications, MicroPython and JavaScript (via an interpreter), and TensorFlow Lite.

The Portenta is able to run like any other embedded microcontroller board, or as a main processor of an embedded computer, with the processor’s GPU allowing engineers to connect the board to an external monitor. An onboard Murata Type 1DX wireless module facilitates simultaneous Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Classic and BLE connectivity. The Wi-Fi interface can be operated as an AP, STA, or dual-mode simultaneous AP/STA, with a transfer rate up to 65Mbps. The board supports wired interfaces including UART, SPI, Ethernet, and I2C, through the MKR-compatible connectors or through two 80-pin high-density connectors, which assure scalability for a broad variety of applications.
