Instead of being a single embedded functional module, Wio Terminal is more of a complete system equipped with Screen + Development Board + Input/Output Interface + Enclosure. Because it uses the SAMD51, it is compatible with Arduino and CircuitPython — using the same Arduino & CircuitPython core we have developed here at Adafruit!
Wio Terminal is an ATSAMD51-based microcontroller with wireless connectivity supported by Realtek RTL8720DN. Its CPU speed runs at 120MHz (boost up to 200MHz). Realtek RTL8720DN chip supports both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi providing the backbone for IoT projects. The Wio Terminal itself is equipped with a 2.4” LCD Screen, onboard accelerometer (LIS3DHTR), microphone, buzzer, microSD card slot, light sensor, and infrared emitter (IR 940nm). On top of that, it also has two x JST PH 4-pin STEMMA / Grove ports for Grove Ecosystem and 40-pin compatible GPIO for more Raspberry Pi add-ons.
