Adafruit ItsyBitsy RP2040 reviewed by Tom’s Hardware #ItsyBitsy #RP2040 @tomshardware @biglesp

Tom’s Hardware reviews the Adafruit ItsyBitsy RP2040 board. They state:

A well thought-out compromise between the QT Py and Feather RP2040 boards. If you need the GPIO but not the size then ItsyBitsy RP2040 is the right choice.

Adafruit’s latest RP2040 board is a compromise. It is not as small as the QT Py RP2040 nor is it as feature rich as their Feather RP2040 but it does offer a great selection of GPIO pins in a compact form factor. The $10 ItsyBitsy RP2040 is the ideal for those that need lots of GPIO pins in a small package. Continuing Adafruit’s range of ItsyBitsy boards, the RP2040 model brings the powerful Raspberry Pi RP2040 SoC to the form factor.
