Quick Reference

2368 pinout

This diagram shows the commonly used interfaces and their pinout locations. Note that all the numbered pins (p5-p30) can also be used as DigitalIn and DigitalOut interfaces. Some pinout options are not shown here; for a full details, see the technical reference below for the full pinout specification

Technical reference

This mbed Microcontroller is based on a Cortex-M3 Core running at 96MHz, with 512KB FLASH, 64KB RAM and a load of interfaces including Ethernet, USB Device, CAN, SPI, I2C and other I/O.


  • 40-pin DIP package
  • 0.1. pitch, 0.9. pin spacing
  • 54mm x 26mm


  • Powered by USB or 4.5v - 9.0v appiled to VIN
  • <200mA (100mA with Ethernet disabled)
  • Real-time clock battery backup input VB
  • 1.8v - 3.3v Keeps Real-time clock running
  • Requires 27uA, can be supplied by a coin cell
  • 3.3v regulated output on VOUT to power peripherals
  • 5.0v from USB available on VU (only available when USB is connected!)
  • Current limited to 500mA
  • Digital IO pins are 3.3v, 40mA each, 400mA max total


  • Vin - External Power supply to the board
    • 4.5v-9v, 100mA + external circuits powered through the Microcontroller
  • Vb - Battery backup input for Real Time Clock
    • 1.8v-3.3v, 30uA
  • nR - Active-low reset pin with identical functionality to the reset button.
  • Pull up resistor is on the board, so it can be driven with an open collector
  • IF+/- - Reserved for Future use
