A USB pedal-based keypad with Raspberry Pi Pico and CircuitPython #RaspberryPiPico #CircuitPython #Keyboards @hackadayio

A lot of USB programmable pedals on the market need to install an application for configuration. Usually this app is only for Windows and came poorly translated (if translated at all). This is a pitfall for Linux or Mac users, who have only two options: To install a Windows virtual machine or ask a favor to a Windows user for pedal setup.

Here come to the rescue Raspberry Pi Pico, for two big reasons: USB native interface, so no programmer or additional hardware needed for firmware download and the most important: CircuitPython support. Programming could be “on the fly” without compiling-and-download during the debug phase. So Rpi Pico is the best candidate for a DIY pedal.

Key features:

  • Developed using CircuitPython, friendly and easy to learn
  • Compatible with the most common operating systems
  • No need to install apps for initial firmware download
  • Key configuration done in a text file
  • Splash resistant and shockproof
  • Detachable and replaceable pedals
  • Built using hardware prototyping system
  • Powered by USB, no additional power source needed
