Raspberry Pi Pico – Review and Getting Started #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Gary Explains on YouTube gives his impressions of the Pico. He also gives a concise explination of what makes the microcontroller different.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation seems to be searching for a new vision and so has decided to get into the crowded microcontroller market with the Raspberry Pi Pico. Based on a dual-core Cortex-M0+ microcontroller, it runs MicroPython or C/C++ and is designed for makers, enthusiasts, and hobbyists. Here is my review and getting start guide.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
