The Raspberry Pi Pico is a low-cost, high-performance microcontroller board with a flexible digital interfaces. It's similar to an Arduino in that it provides only microcontroller functionality, executing programming in MicroPython or C++. It can be programmed by USB using a Raspberry Pi board, PC, Mac, etc.

The Pico does not include GPIO or debugging pins, you'll need to purchase and attach the variety of your choice. We suggest these breakaway headers that you can cut to size!
Raspberry Pi Pico W has been designed to be a low cost yet flexible development platform for RP2040, with a 2.4GHz wireless interface and the following key features:
  • RP2040 microcontroller with 2MB of flash memory

  • On-board single-band 2.4GHz wireless interfaces (802.11n)

  • Micro USB B port for power and data (and for reprogramming the flash)

  • 40 pin 21mmx51mm 'DIP' style 1mm thick PCB with 0.1" through-hole pins also with edge castellations

    • Exposes 26 multi-function 3.3V general purpose I/O (GPIO)

    • 23 GPIO are digital-only, with three also being ADC capable

    • Can be surface mounted as a module

  • 3-pin ARM serial wire debug (SWD) port

  • Simple yet highly flexible power supply architecture

    • Various options for easily powering the unit from micro USB, external supplies or batteries

  • High quality, low cost, high availability

  • Comprehensive SDK, software examples and documentation

 

For full details of the RP2040 microcontroller please see the RP2040 Datasheet book. Key features include:

  • Dual-core cortex M0+ at up to 133MHz

    • On-chip PLL allows variable core frequency

  • External Quad-SPI Flash with eXecute In Place (XIP) and 16kByte on-chip cache

  • High performance full-crossbar bus fabric

  • On-board USB1.1 (device or host)

  • 30 multi-function general purpose I/O (four can be used for ADC)

    • 1.8-3.3V I/O voltage

  • 12-bit 500ksps analogue to digital converter (ADC)

  • Various digital peripherals

    • 2 × UART, 2 × I2C, 2 × SPI, 16 × PWM channels

    • 1 × timer with 4 alarms, 1 × real time clock

  • 2 × programmable I/O (PIO) blocks, 8 state machines in total

    • Flexible, user-programmable high-speed I/O

    • Can emulate interfaces such as SD card and VGA
