The Raspberry Pi Pico, it's; small, fast, highly affordable, and incredibly versatile. Brought to you by the same team that delivered the Raspberry Pi computer, this brand new microcontroller is set to take the physical computing world by storm. It's built around the powerful, Pi designed, RP2040 Dual ARM Cortex-M0+ @ 133MHz chip that also features 264KB internal RAM and support for up to 16MB of off-chip Flash. The board is fully loaded with the hardware and flexible I/O options that make this board perfect for beginners and experts alike.
The Pico is supplied with a full set of pre-soldered headers attached to the board. As soon as you unpackage it, it's ready to go. It can be plugged straight into a breadboard or have jumper wires connected straight to it and your soldering iron need not even be plugged in.
Unlike the Raspberry Pi computers, the pico has no operating system. Instead, the board is programmed to do only the tasks that are required of it in the project it will be used for. It can be programmed with the C/C++ SDK or with MicroPython. Code on your Desktop Computer/Pi and then transfer via USB to the Pico. There are a number of options when it comes to coding editors. We've favoured using Thonny as it is beginner-friendly by design. It's also available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, including Raspberry Pi.
The board features a USB port and 40 main user pins, 30 of which being GPIO pins. They include 4 anologue outs, 2 UARTs, 2 SPI controllers, 2 I2C, 16 PWM channels, and 8 PIO. Note: Pico IO voltage is fixed at 3.3V.
