NEWARK Arduino UNO R4 boards come in two versions: the UNO R4 Minima and UNO R4 Wi-Fi, both providing improved performance and new possibilities for makers, including beginners and experienced developers alike, offering a cost-effective investment at every level. UNO R4 introduces a 32-bit architecture with many new capabilities for makers, and is powered by Renesas RA4M1 32-bit Cortex-M4 processor, which boosts processing power, memory and functionality. These enhancements are fully backwards compatible and do not compromise working with existing shields and accessories.
The UNO R4 Minima version provides high-end, powerful, and affordable technology for designers who want the power and speed of the latest microcontroller but have no need for additional features. Onboard SWD pins provide a simple way to connect third-party debugging probes that further ensure reliable system operation.
The UNO R4 Wi-Fi features an Espressif ESP32-S3-mini co-processor and offers Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, providing robust internet accessibility for IoT projects.
