The cost-effective, high-performance module that makes IoT accessible

Optimize your way to automation with Arduino Pro’s streamlined Portenta module, with industrial-grade quality and guaranteed security

Portenta C33

Industrial IoT is within your reach, with Portenta C33

Ideal to develop cost-effective, real-time applications, Portenta C33 features the Arm® Cortex®-M33 microcontroller by global leader Renesas. Thanks to its onboard Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® LE connectivity, the module stands out as an ideal solution for IoT gateways, remote control systems, fleet management and process tracking.

While its secure element guarantees industrial-grade security at the hardware level, the Portenta C33 is also able to perform over-the-air firmware updates with Arduino IoT Cloud or other third-party services.

Quickly deploying AI-powered projects becomes quick and easy with Portenta C33, by leveraging a vast array of ready-to-use software libraries and Arduino sketches available, as well as widgets that display data in real time on Arduino IoT Cloud-based dashboards. What’s more, the module’s form factor is compatible with the Portenta and MKR ranges and features castellated pins – ready for automatic assembly lines and more efficient connections to other components.

Portenta C33 can be at the heart of industrial IoT gateways, connecting devices, machines and sensors to collect operation data in real time, and display them on a custom Arduino IoT Cloud dashboard with end-to-end secure data encryption. For example, data on overall equipment efficiency (OEE) and overall process effectiveness (OPE) can be tracked, monitored and processed; or smart systems can detect anomalies, alert operators about unplanned downtimes, or provide the information for predictive maintenance that ultimately improves production rates. Thanks to full compatibility, Portenta C33 can also be easily paired with Nicla modules’ smart sensors, to carry out quality assurance controls right on the production line, catching any defects as early as possible.

In factories, offices and residential buildings, Portenta C33 can be deployed to monitor gas, water, electricity and any other utility consumption through a single system. Data can be collected, displayed and processed to pinpoint usage trends in Arduino IoT Cloud charts, providing an overall image for energy management optimization and cost reduction.

Finally, Portenta C33 provides Portenta and MKR developers with a plug-and-play IoT prototyping solution, because it supports high-level languages like MicroPyton and integrates not only Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® Low Energy connectivity but also a wide variety of peripheral interfaces, including CAN, SAI, SPI and I2C.
