Digital and Analog I/Os

The 20 general purpose I/O pins can be used for digital input and digital output. All pins operate at strictly 3.3 V and can be used as interrupt source. Each pin can source or sink a maximum of 20 mA current.

Among the 20 I/O pins:

  • The four pins numbered 3, 5, 6 and 9  can be used for PWM output.
  • The six pins labeled A0, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 provide a 10-bit resolution and measure values from ground to 3.3 V.
  • The serial pins labeled 0 (RX) and 1 (TX) are used to receive (RX) and transmit (TX) serial data.
  • All pins can trigger an external interrupt, that is an interrupt on a low value, a high value, on a rising edge or a falling edge. In addition, the pins labelled 2, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13 can trigger an external interrupt on a change or value.
  • The SDA and SCL pins support serial data transfer using I2C/TWI protocol.

Power Supply

There are two ways to power the tinyTILE* board:

  • By using the USB connection
  • By inserting the leads from a battery in the GND and Vin pin headers of the power connector
