Description

The Arduino Uno R4 is powered by the Renesas RA4M1 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4 processor, providing a significant boost in processing power, memory, and functionality. The WiFi version comes with an ESP32-S3 WiFi module in addition to the RA4M1, expanding creative opportunities for makers and engineers. The Uno R4 Minima is an affordable option for those who don’t need the additional features.

The Arduino Uno R4 runs at 48 MHz, which provides a 3x increase over the popular Uno R3. Additionally, SRAM has been upgraded from 2 kB to 32 kB, and flash memory from 32 kB to 256 kB to support more complex projects. Responding to community feedback, the USB port is now USB-C, and the maximum power supply voltage has been raised to 24 V with an enhanced thermal design. The board includes a CAN bus and an SPI port, enabling users to reduce wiring and perform parallel tasks by connecting multiple shields. A 12-bit analog DAC is also provided on the board.

Specifications

Here you will find the technical specifications for the Arduino® UNO R4 WiFi.

Note on ESP header: the ESP32-S3 module on this board operates on 3.3 V. The ESP header located close to the USB-C® connector is 3.3V only and should not be connected to 5 V. This may damage your board.

Note on Qwiic connector: the Qwiic connector on this board is connected to a secondary I2C bus on this board, IIC0. This connector is 3.3 V only, connecting higher voltages may damage your board. To initialize this bus, use Wire1.begin() instead.

Maximum current draw per pin: the UNO R4 series’ maximum current draw per GPIO is 8 mA, which is significantly lower than previous versions. Exceeding this limit may damage your pin / board.
