The MKR Zero is a board that brings the power and features of the original Zero in the smaller MKR form factor. The board is a great tool for education, allowing you to learn the basics of 32 bit application development, and there is an on-board SD connector with dedicated SPI interfaces that allow you to play music files with no extra hardware.

The heart of the board is the Atmel SAMD21 MCU, featuring a 32-bit ARM Cortex M0+ core. The board has everything needed to support the microcontroller, just connect to a computer using a microusb cable, or power it up using a LiPo battery. Battery voltage can also be monitored since a connection between the battery and the analog converter of the board exists.

There are two libraries available for this board:

Arduino Sound library ? a simple way to play and analyse audio data using Arduino on SAM D21-based boards.

I2S library ? to use the I2S protocol on SAMD21-based boards. For those who don?t know, I2S (Inter-IC Sound) is an electrical serial bus interface standard for connecting digital audio devices.
