RedBoard Turbo Hookup Guide
If you're ready to step up your Arduino game from older 8-bit/16MHz microcontrollers, the RedBoard Turbo is an awesome alternative. The RedBoard Turbo uses the ATSAMD21G18, which is an ARM Cortex M0+, 32-bit microcontroller that can run at up to 48MHz. The RedBoard Turbo is similar to the SAMD21 Dev Breakout, with a few improvements. The RedBoard Turbo steps up the flash memory from the 256kB of internal memory to 4MB of external memory. Along with the UF2 Bootloader, the RedBoard Turbo is even easier to program than before!
The RedBoard Turbo equips the ATSAMD21G18 with a USB interface for programming and power, a Qwiic connector, an RTC crystal, WS2812-based addressable RGB LED, 600mA 3.3V regulator, LiPo charger, and a variety of other components.
In addition to the RedBoard Turbo, you'll also need a Micro-B Cable (as if you don't already have dozens in your USB cable drawer!). That's all you'll need to get started. You can also take advantage of its LiPo charger with a single-cell Lithium Polymer battery. You may not need everything though depending on what you have. Add it to your cart, read through the guide, and adjust the cart as necessary.
Before continuing on with this tutorial, you may want to familiarize yourself with some of these topics if they’re unfamiliar to you:
