Small in size, they are quite powerful, equipped with more powerful processors and have a low power consumption

Arduino, the global giant in designing and manufacturing open-source hardware and microcontroller kits, introduces 4 new boards to its Arduino Nano family. The company made this announcement at the Maker Faire Bay Area held earlier this year in the US.

Arduino Nano Every

Based on the ATMega4809 AVR processor, the Arduino Nano Every is flexible to a designer’s requirements. With 15 pin connectors, the board can be mounted on a breadboard, or directly soldered on a PCB as an SMT. A SAMD11 ARM Cortex M0+ processor acts as a high-performance USB to serial converter that can be re-programmed to further expand the board’s applications.

This small, robust and powerful board is based on ESP32, a 6 axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and Arm Cortex-M0+ SAMD21 processor. WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity in combination with its low power architecture make the board a practical and cost-effective solution for your connected projects.

Arduino Nano 33 IoT is fully compatible with the Arduino IOT Cloud, making it very efficient to set up online dashboards with little coding. The board is equipped with TLS secure transport: an ATECC608A chip that stores cryptographic keys in hardware, thus offering a very high level of security.

With 15 pins connectors, the board can either be mounted on a breadboard, or can be used as an SMT module by directly soldering it on a PCB.

Arduino Nano 33 IoT

Note: Arduino Nano 33 IoT only supports 3.3V I/Os and is not 5V tolerant. Be careful not to directly connect 5V signals else the board will be damaged. Also, as opposed to the regular Arduino Nano boards that support 5V operation, the 5V pin of Arduino Nano 33 IoT does not supply voltage, but is connected to the USB power input through a jumper.

Arduino Nano 33 BLE

The compact and reliable Arduino Nano 33 BLE is built around the NINA B306 module, based on Nordic nRF 52840 and containing a powerful Cortex M4F.
Its architecture has a 9 axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and reduced power consumption compared to other same size boards.

This allows the design of wearable devices and movement sensing for communicating with other devices at a close range. Arduino Nano 33 BLE is ideal for automation projects thanks to the multiprotocol BT 5.0 radio.

Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense

The compact and reliable Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense is built around the NINA B306 module for BLE and Bluetooth 5 communication, based on Nordic nRF 52840 processor that contains a powerful Cortex M4F. The board has a rich set of sensors that allow the creation of innovative and highly interactive designs.

Its architecture has a 9 axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), temperature, pressure, humidity, light, color and even gestures sensors and a microphone that are managed through our specialised libraries. As compared to other same size boards, it has a reduced power consumption (together with the Nano form factor).

All this allows the design of wearable devices and gesture sensing for communicating with other devices at a close range. Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense is ideal for interactive automation projects thanks to the multiprotocol BT 5.0 radio.
