The brand new Raspberry Pi Pico W and Raspberry Pi Pico H are actually accessible right here at SparkFun Electronics!
Raspberry Pi is at it once more! SparkFun is proud to co-announce and introduce you to the brand new Raspberry Pi Pico W and Pico H! With this launch, Raspberry Pi expands their RP2040 microcontroller line to incorporate wi-fi capabilities and headers. Let’s leap in and see what precisely is being introduced and launched right now. Let’s have a look!
The Raspberry Pi Pico W builds upon the nice cost-for-performance metrics of the Pico and add WiFi to the board. The Pico W options the identical attributes because the Raspberry Pi Pico and likewise incorporates an Infineon CYW43439 wi-fi chip. CYW43439 helps IEEE 802.11 b/g/n wi-fi LAN, and Bluetooth® 5.2. (6/30/2022: Solely Wi-fi LAN is supported on the Pico W in the mean time, this will likely be up to date as the brand new options develop into accessible)
The Raspberry Pi Pico line is a low-cost, high-performance microcontroller board with versatile digital interfaces. It characteristic the RP2040 which marks Raspberry Pi’s first microcontroller designed in-house. Pico offers minimal (but versatile) exterior circuitry to help the RP2040 chip (Flash, crystal, energy provides and decoupling and USB connector). Nearly all of the RP2040 microcontroller pins are dropped at the person IO pins on the left and proper fringe of the board. 4 RP2040 IO are used for inside features – driving an LED, on-board Switched Mode Energy Provide (SMPS) energy management and sensing the system voltages.
In the meantime, the Raspberry Pi Pico H variation is nearly precisely like the present Pico however comes with a set of male headers pre-soldered to all through-hole vias and a 3-pin debug connector. The spacing stays 2.54mm and breadboard appropriate (much more so now with the addition of the male headers).
We’re, as soon as once more, past excited to get our fingers on the brand new Raspberry Pi Pico W and Pico H and create new tasks, however what do you wish to use them for? Are you excited to attempt making one thing new with Raspberry Pi’s wi-fi microcontroller? Tell us within the feedback under and we’ll speak with you once more tomorrow with extra new merchandise!
