Arduino-compatible ATmega32U4 USB Type-C dev board


Ping Hobbyelektronik has released a new open-source board called EPI-32U4. This tiny board is Arduino-compatible and offers USB Type-C connectivity, making it an excellent choice for makers and hobbyists.

The EPI-32U4 board measures just 23mm x 13mm, making it one of the smallest Arduino-compatible boards available in the market. Despite its small size, the board packs a punch, thanks to the ATmega32U4 microcontroller, which offers 32KB of flash memory and 2.5KB of SRAM. The board also features a built-in USB Type-C port, which provides faster data transfer and faster charging speeds.

The ATmega32U4 is a high-performance, low-power, 8-bit microcontroller with advanced RISC architecture and non-voltage program and data memories. The microcontroller features power-on reset and programmable brown-out detection. There are six sleep modes, including idle, ADC noise reduction, power save, power down, standby, and extended standby.

Specifications of Epi 32U4 development board:

  • Manufacturer: Ping Hobbyelektronik
  • Microcontroller: Atmega32U4
  • Clock frequency: 16MHz
  • Operating voltage: 4.5V to 5.5V
  • Input/output ports: 23 available pins
  • LED pin: Pin 13
  • Interfaces: USB Type-C port
  • Dimensions: 22.75×12.75 mm
