Most powerful Arduino available to date, powered by Texas Instruments Sitara™ AM335x processor
Extending the capabilities of its portfolio, Arduino has selected the Sitara™ AM335x processor to power the newest Arduino board, the Arduino TRE. Leveraging 1 GHz of performance, the Sitara AM335x processor offers up to 100x more performance on the Arduino TRE, compared to the Arduino Leonardo or Uno. The Arduino TRE brings together the existing Leonardo board with the Sitara processor to revolutionize the open source market.  With this combination, you can run full Linux giving your microcontroller more headroom for real-time processing. With the TRE you get the best of both worlds: the real-time control of the microcontroller and the full Linux capabilities of a processor.

The Sitara-processor-powered Arduino TRE serves as a network hub providing flexibility for you to create unique and innovative Internet-of-Things applications including:

  • Gateways for building and lighting automation systems
  • Telemetry hubs that collect data from nearby sensors wirelessly
  • 3D printers
  • And other connected applications that require host control plus real-time operations

About Arduino
Arduino, the first widespread open source hardware platform, was launched in 2005 to simplify the process of electronic prototyping. It enables everyday people with little or no technical background to build interactive products.

The Arduino ecosystem is a combination of three different elements:

  • A small electronic board manufactured in Italy that makes it easy and affordable to learn to program a microcontroller, a type of tiny computer found inside millions of everyday objects.
  • A free software application used to program the board.
  • A vibrant community, true expression of the enthusiasm powering the project. Every day on the website thousands of people connect with other users, ask for help, engage and contribute to the project.
