The Raspberry Pi Pico is a microcontroller board based on the Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller chip. It has been designed to be a low-cost, high-performance microcontroller board with flexible digital interfaces. The Raspberry Pi Pico features two ARM Cortex-M0+ cores run up to 133MHz; 256KB RAM; 30 GPIO pins; and a broad range of interfacing options. This is paired with 2MB/4MB/8MB/16MB of onboard QSPI Flash memory for code and data storage.

Buyers comments

  • The 16MB board that I received came with MicroPython preinstalled. The MicroPython version string displayed was "MicroPython v1.17 on 2021-12-01; Pimoroni Pico LiPo 16MB with RP2040". I haven't done much work with the board yet, but initial tests show that the board works well with the Raspberry Pi Pico SDK V1.3.0, openocd and gdb-multiarch. The RP2040 mounted on the board is revision B2 which, at the time of writing, is the latest revision. 07 Jan 2022 12:49
  • Great USB-C RP2040 development board. Pin-compatible with RPi foundation's Pico, silk-screen on WeAct is much easier to read in comparison. Extra buttons, silkscreen indicating default KEY and LED pins, and 3V3 on the debug header are very nice touches.
  • Installing Circuitpython worked fast and without problems!
