The Melopero Shake is a new RP2040-based board in Feather format #FeatherFriday #CircuitPython #RP2040 @MeloperoMakers

Melopero Shake RP2040, is a new microcontroller board based on the Raspberry Pi RP2040. It features 16MB of flash memory, battery charger with low battery monitor, WS2812 RGB LED, Qwiic/Stemma QT connector, USB-C connector and more.

And it’s in the popular Feather format, compatible with dozens of add-on boards!

The Shake RP2040 is programmable in C / C ++, MicroPython, CircuitPython and Arduino.

The board features:

  • 16Mbytes of FLASH Memory
  • 3.7-4.2 LiPo battery charger (200mA charge curret)
  • Battery monitor (it sends an alert when the battery voltage drops at 3.4V)
  • Reset and boot buttons (no need to detach / attach the board to enter boot mode)
  • Qwiic / Stemma QT connector for attaching lots of Melopero, Adafruit and SparkFun sensors
  • Classic Feather pinout for maximum compatibility
  • USB-C connector for powering, programming and charging
  • JST 2-pin connector for attaching the battery (we follow the Adafruit and SparkFun batteries polarity)
  • Green user LED on pin 13
  • RGB WS2812 LED (aka NeoPixel)
  • Orange LED for signaling the charging status
  • SWD header for debugging
  • 4 mounting holes
  • Programmable in C / C ++, MicroPython, CircuitPython and Arduino

Dimensions: 2.0 “x 0.9” x 0.28 “(50.8mm x 22.8mm x 7.05 / max height).
