The SAM D20 Xplained Pro evaluation kit from Atmel is ideal for evaluation and prototyping with the SAM D20 Cortex™-M0+ processor-based microcontrollers. Extension boards to the SAM D20 Xplained Pro can be purchased individually.
The board gives access to all IO pins, as well as some buttons and LEDs, and offers expansion possibilities with its multiple extension ports. Code can easily be moved from the SAM D20 Xplained Pro to your target device, as the SAM D20 devices are binary-compatible. The board’s embedded debugger and programmer work directly with development tools, eliminating the need for a third-party debugger or programmer. Just plug the board into your USB port and you are ready to go.
The SAM D20 Xplained Pro supports the Atmel I/O1 Xplained Pro, OLED1 Xplained Pro, and PROTO1 Xplained Pro extension boards. The ATSAMD20-XPRO evaluation kit does not include extension boards, but these boards can be purchased individually. They provide more system functionality and make it easy to connect the SAM D20 Xplained Pro to your own breadboard, veroboard, or custom PCB.
