The RedBoard Turbo uses the ATSAMD21G18, which is an ARM Cortex M0+, 32-bit microcontroller that can run at up to 48MHz. With 4MB of external flash memory and a UF2 (USB Flashing Format) bootloader, the RedBoard Turbo provides an economical and easy to use development platform.
The RedBoard Turbo can be flashed over the Mass Storage Class (MSC) just like a removable flash drive, thanks the the UF2 bootloader. With this bootloader, the RedBoard Turbo shows up on your computer as a USB storage device without having to install drivers and can be used with CircuitPython.

This is the latest stable release of CircuitPython that will work with the RedBoard Turbo.
Start here if you are new to CircuitPython.
This is the latest unstable release of CircuitPython that will work with the RedBoard Turbo.
Unstable builds have the latest features but are more likely to have critical bugs.
Every time we commit new code to CircuitPython we automatically build binaries for each board and language. The binaries are stored on Amazon S3, organized by board, and then by language. Try them if you want the absolute latest and are feeling daring or want to see if a problem has been fixed.
All previous releases are listed on GitHub, with release notes, and are available for download from Amazon S3. They are handy for testing, but otherwise we recommend using the latest stable release. Some older GitHub release pages include the same binaries for downloading. But we have discontinued including binaries as assets on newer release pages because of the large number of files for each release.
