Enhanced with Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller featuring ARM Cortex-M0+ cores and on-board power supply

Incorporating Raspberry Pi’s signature values of high performance, low cost and ease of use, the new Raspberry Pi Pico offers exceptional performance, thanks to it being built around the brand-new Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller, delivering a flexible, highly affordable development platform that can also be directly deployed into end products.

RP2040 offers high performance for integer workloads, large on-chip memory and a wide range of I/O options, making it a flexible solution for a wide range of microcontroller applications. It features:
⦁ 2 ARM Cortex-M0+ cores clocked at 133 MHz
⦁ 264 kB of on-chip SRAM
⦁ 30 multifunction GPIO pins
⦁ Dedicated hardware for commonly used peripherals alongside a programmable I/O subsystem for extended peripheral support
⦁ Four-channel ADC with internal temperature sensor
⦁ USB 1.1 with host and device support.

Key features include:

Memory: 264kB of on-chip SRAM; 2MB of on-board QSPI Flash.
Interfacing and mechanicals: 26 GPIO pins, of which 3 can be used as analogue inputs. 0.1” through-hole pads with castellated edges for SMT assembly.
Power: On-board power supply to generate 3.3V for RP2040 and external circuitry. Wide input voltage range, from 1.8V to 5.5V, giving designers the flexibility to select their preferred power source.
Developer tools: Simple drag and drop programming via micro-USB. 3-pin Serial Wire Debug (SWD) for interactive debugging. Comprehensive C SDK, mature MicroPython port, and extensive examples and documentation.

The Raspberry Pi Pico is now available from Farnell in EMEA, Newark in North America and element14 in Asia Pacific.
