Spresense is a compact development board based on Sony’s power-efficient multicore microcontroller CXD5602. It allows developers to create IoT applications in a very short time and is supported by the Arduino IDE as well as the more advanced NuttX based SDK.

  • Integrated GPS - The embedded GNSS with support for GPS, QZSS, and GLONASS enables applications where tracking is required.
  • Hi-res audio output and multi-mic inputs - Advanced 192kHz/24 bit audio codec and amplifier for audio output, and support for up to 8 mic input channels.
  • Multicore microcontroller - Spresense is powered by Sony's CXD5602 microcontroller (ARM® Cortex®-M4F × 6 cores), with a clock speed of 156 MHz.

The Spresense main board has the following features.

  • Sony’s CXD5602 Processor

  • 8 MB Flash memory

  • PCB with small footprint

  • Dedicated camera connector

  • GNSS (GPS) antenna

  • Pins and LEDs

    • Multiple GPIO (UART, SPI, I2C, I2S)

    • 2 ADC channels

    • Application LED x 4 (Green)

    • Power LED (Blue)

    • USB serial port
