Portenta H7 is a powerful microcontroller from Arduino that can be programmed with high-level languages and it is suitable for industrial environments. The hardware and components on Portenta H7 is customizable but only for large quantity orders. In order to make Portenta H7 hardware flexible and accessible for the user Arduino released a new version of Portenta H7 offering a different hardware configuration.
These are the two available Portenta H7 versions and their technical specifications:
Portenta H7 Full (main H7)
A customizable hardware board that can be programmed with high level languages while performing low-latency operations. Its main processor is the dual core STM32H747 that includes a Cortex M7 and a Cortex M4.
Portenta H7 Lite
The Portenta H7 Lite version includes the same microcontroller as the full H7 but does not have Wi-Fi or BLE connectivity. Only the ECC608 cryptochip is available in this version, and it does not have USB-C video output.
To summarize, a chart with all different models and specifications is presented below:
