SparkFun MicroMod ATP Carrier Board

Access all the pins (i.e. ATP) of the MicroMod Processor Boards with the SparkFun MicroMod ATP Carrier Board! This board breaks out the MicroMod Processor Board's pins on the M.2 connector to 0.1" spaced female headers and PTH pads on the edge of the board. This Carrier Board is great if you're interested in testing out different MicroMod Processor Boards for your application.

A modern USB-C connector makes programming easy. In addition to the pins broken out, two separate Qwiic-enabled I2C ports allow you to easily daisy chain Qwiic-enabled devices. We've exposed the SWD pins for more advanced users who prefer to use the power and speed of professional tools. A USB-A connector is provided for Processor Boards that have USB Host support. A backup battery is provided for processor boards with RTC. If you need a "lot" of GPIO with a simple-to-program, ready for market module, the ATP is the fix you need. We've even added a convenient jumper to measure the current consumption for low power testing.


MicroMod is a modular interface ecosystem that connects a microcontroller “processor board” to various “carrier board” peripherals. Utilizing the M.2 standard, the MicroMod standard is designed to easily swap out processors on the fly. Pair a specialized carrier board for the project you need with your choice of compatible processor!

This tutorial covers the basic functionality of the MicroMod SAMD51 and highlights the features of the ARM Cortex-M4F development board.

Core Skill: DIY

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

1 DIY

Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.
See all skill levels


Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.
See all skill levels


Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

Looking for answers to technical questions?

We welcome your comments and suggestions below. However, if you are looking for solutions to technical questions please see our Technical Assistance page.

  • Make an arduino compatible version! Or is this already arduino compatible?

    • Yes, it's Arduino compatible. Check out the example section 'Blink': https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/micromod-all-the-pins-atp-carrier-board#example

      • But is the hardware form factor Arduino? Could I put an Arduino Mega shield on the ATP for example?

        • If you compare the pinout, the MicroMod ATP Carrier Board does not use the Arduino Mega 2560 hardware footprint.
