Introducing the Teensy 3.6, the newest member of the Teensy lineup from PJRC! If you're not familiar with Teensy, get ready to be blown away. 

Created by Paul Stoffregen from PJRC, the Teensy 3.6 is a microcontroller development board running a 32-bit ARM Cortex M4 processor, which brings a 180MHz clock speed to the table, along with 1MB of flash, 4K of EEPROM, and 62 I/O pins. What makes Teensy special, however, is that along with being programmable directly in C, it also supports programming from the Arduino IDE. That's right, you get the power and flexibility of ARM processors, with the versatility that is Arduino IDE. Here's a quick look at some of the specs that the Teensy 3.6 packs in:

  • 180 MHz ARM Cortex-M4 with Floating Point Unit
  • 1M Flash, 256K RAM, 4K EEPROM
  • Microcontroller Chip MK66FX1M0VMD18 (PDF link)
  • USB High Speed (480 Mbit/sec) Port
  • 2 CAN Bus Ports
  • 32 General Purpose DMA Channels
  • 22 PWM Outputs
  • 4 I2C Ports
  • 11 Touch Sensing Inputs

The Teensy 3.6 breaks out the 62 I/O pins found on the M4 chip, however, only 42 of them are available on the 0.1" headers. The rest can be found as SMD pads underneath the board.

**Note that unlike the 3.5, the Teensy does NOT support 5V tolerant pins. Applying more than 3.3V to its pins can damage the board**

Teensy boards have been popular with the maker community for quite some time now due to their native USB support which allows them to behave as HID devices, MIDI devices, and much more. The 3.6 builds on this with a second USB port (on GPIO pins), an Ethernet port, and onboard microSD card support. 

  • 62 I/O Pins (42 breadboard friendly)
  • 25 Analog Inputs to 2 ADCs with 13 bits resolution
  • 2 Analog Outputs (DACs) with 12 bit resolution
  • 20 PWM Outputs (Teensy 3.6 has 22 PWM)
  • USB Full Speed (12 Mbit/sec) Port
  • Ethernet mac, capable of full 100 Mbit/sec speed
  • Native (4 bit SDIO) micro SD card port
  • I2S Audio Port, 4 Channel Digital Audio Input & Output
  • 14 Hardware Timers
  • Cryptographic Acceleration Unit
  • Random Number Generator
  • CRC Computation Unit
  • 6 Serial Ports (2 with FIFO & Fast Baud Rates)
  • 3 SPI Ports (1 with FIFO)
  • 3 I2C Ports (Teensy 3.6 has a 4th I2C port)
  • Real Time Clock

  1. Review by Tony verified purchaser

    Teensy is actually a really nice µC. Works fine under MacOS - and that's saying a fair bit.

    The Arduino mapping has been done very well. For example, the digitalWrite() command is faster than the PORTx command by a long way.

    The unit is also the fastest Arduino I can buy, better than PIC32MZ (unless I can figure out a way to speed the PIC). The BGA package is not my favourite solution (can't get those pins under the chip) but it's what the device comes as, and the board is very small as a result.

    Up votes
    - works well as an Arduino clone with heaps of grunt and speed.
    - works with MacOS.
    - very concise form factor.
    - reasonable documentation.
    Down votes
    - no way to screw it (to a box, that is).
    - only 256KB RAM (yes, I want mooooore).
