The Seeed Studio Wio Terminal is an Arduino-compatible development board that offers a wide range of features for your IoT projects. With its highly integrated design and powerful capabilities, it provides an easy and hassle-free way to bring your ideas to life.
Highly Integrated Design
The Wio Terminal comes with a 2.4″ LCD screen, onboard IMU (LIS3DHTR), microphone, buzzer, microSD card slot, light sensor, and infrared emitter (IR 940nm). Its well-designed enclosure includes built-in magnets and two mounting holes, making it easy to set up your IoT project without any hassle.
Powerful MCU & Reliable Wireless Connectivity
At the heart of the Wio Terminal is an ARM Cortex M4F system-on-a-chip, a powerful 32-bit ARM processor running at 120Mhz (200Mhz burst). It boasts 4MB of storage and 192k RAM. Additionally, it features a Realtek RTL8720DN wireless chip that provides Wi-Fi (2.4G/5G) and Bluetooth (BLE4/5.0) connectivity, ensuring reliable wireless communication for your projects.
Raspberry Pi 40-pin Compatible GPIO
The Wio Terminal can be easily mounted on a Raspberry Pi as a slave device. With the help of an adapter cable, you can also use Raspberry Pi’s HAT (Hardware Attached on Top) with the Wio Terminal. This compatibility allows you to leverage the extensive range of Raspberry Pi accessories and start programming directly without the need for soldering or breadboards. Moreover, with support for over 300 Grove modules, you can easily collect data and expand the functionality of your projects.
USB OTG Support
The Wio Terminal features a USB-C connector for power supply. It can act as both a USB client and a host. As a USB client, it can emulate a keyboard, mouse, or MIDI device to the host PC. As a USB host, it can read signals from a wired game controller. Additionally, the 40-pin on the back of the board can be used for power supply when using the USB Host/Client function.
The Wio Terminal supports a variety of software options, providing flexibility for developers. It is compatible with Arduino, MicroPython, Ardupy, AT Firmware, and Visual Studio Code. In the near future, CircuitPython support will also be available. With the ability to program in Python using the MS Visual Code editor, you can easily leverage your favorite Arduino libraries or make use of existing ArduPy ones.
