Raspberry Pi Pico: Everything You Need to Know to Get Started
The Raspberry Pi Foundation has released its first official microcontroller board called the Raspberry Pi Pico. The Pico is quickly sweeping across the community as makers push this tiny new board to its limits and start development on new cool projects.
If you want to see what all the fuss is about, you may be wondering what the new Raspberry Pi Pico offers and how you can use it.
What is the Raspberry Pi Pico?
The Raspberry Pi Pico is a microcontroller board developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. It features the new ARM-based chip developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation known as the RP2040. This chip has only been made available to third-party developers, however, plans in the works to make the RP2040 a commercially available unit that any maker can purchase.
The Pico can be programmed using an IDE, much like an Arduino board. It supports multiple languages including both Micropython and C.
