The WiFi variant of Arduino Uno R4 features an ESP32-S3 coprocessor that handles Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® Low Energy connectivity.

Arduino UNO R4, which has become available on the Arduino Store, is the fourth version of the iconic Arduino UNO. This fourth and enhanced iteration adds a whole new dimension to the world of DIY, with a speedy 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M4, while also offering a 16-fold increase in memory, as well as more connectors and connectivity options than ever – in two variants: UNO R4 Minima and UNO R4 WiFi.

The UNO R4 WiFi variant is perfect for all users, from beginners to experts, wanting to explore the forefront of innovation. This full-fledged board features an ESP32-S3 coprocessor that handles Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® Low Energy connectivity, so the other microcontroller, RA4M1, can focus on different tasks. On top of all the features in the Minima variant, UNO R4 WiFi offers:

    • Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® connectivity, plus Cloud-compatibility: build IoT projects, create an interactive dashboard and control your project remotely.
    • A 12×8 LED matrix: imagine working on a creative project using animations or plotting sensor data, without any additional hardware!
    • A Qwiic connector to facilitate quick prototyping: thanks to a wide variety of compatible modules that can be connected over I2C, you can easily create custom projects and expand the capabilities of your UNO R4 WiFi.
    • A built-in mechanism that detects operations that might cause a crash: if it catches errors such as a division by zero, the board stops them before they can cause trouble, and provides a detailed explanation on the serial monitor.
