Arduino and Atmel have teamed up to deliver the Arduino Zero development board, a 32bit extension of the platform established by Arduino UNO. The Zero board is powered by Atmel's SAMD21 MCU, which features a 32bit ARM Cortex M0+ core. The SAMD21 MCU comes with 256Kb of flash and 32Kb SRAM in a TQFP package, detailed the companies.

Compatible with a 3.3V shield that conforms to the Arduino R3 Layout, development with the Arduino Zero using the Arduino programming language is fully supported through a custom developed software library, integrated in the Arduino development environment.

The Arduino Zero board also features flexible peripherals and Atmel's Embedded Debugger (EDBG), which provides a full debug interface on the SAMD21 without the need for additional hardware, significantly increasing the ease-of-use for software debugging, stated the company. EDBG also supports a virtual COM port that can be used for device programming and traditional Arduino boot loader functionality.
