Raspberry Pi Pico - a small board with great possibilities
The Raspberry Pi Pico is one of the development board models designed and manufactured by Raspberry Pi. Pico is characterized by small size and weight, as well as an attractive price, while offering high efficiency and great technical parameters. The board is equipped with a dual-core RP2040 chip with a clock frequency of 133 MHz, 264 KB of SRAM and 2 MB of flash memory, as well as the ability to communicate via I 2 C, UART, USB (in the micro version) or ADC. All this makes the Raspberry Pi Pico a very versatile proposition that is perfect for a variety of applications. The board will fit perfectly, for example, in small electronic projects where the miniaturization of individual components is of key importance. Thanks to the large variety of ports and communication methods, Pico will also be perfect as a logical element in individual subsystems of automation installations and IoT networks. On the other hand, the possibility of programming with the MicroPython language makes the board suitable for learning microcontroller coding for beginners.
Raspberry Pico HAT extensions
The Raspberry Pi Pico HAT extensions allow you to extend the board's capabilities with new functions. The use of appropriate overlays allows, among others, the addition of new inputs and outputs, connection of peripheral devices or the connection of Pico with sensor modules. Thanks to the appropriate design, the HAT overlays are perfectly adapted to work with this model of the tile, which allows them to be quickly connected with each other and trouble-free operation. A great advantage is the great popularity of Pico, thanks to which it is easy to find electronic projects using this board on the Internet.
What projects will you create with the Raspberry Pi Pico board and extensions?
The Raspberry Pi Pico HAT board and extensions allow you to build a wide variety of electronic projects. You can use them, for example, to create your own audio set that allows you to connect headphones and play music, or a weather station that measures the current environmental conditions. However, using the appropriate output expanders will allow you to connect the Raspberry Pi Pico to various actuators, such as motors or actuators, and use them to create your own home automation devices. The board enables programming in three languages: C, C ++ and MicroPython.
Products that you will find in this category
In this category you will find a large selection of extensions for the Raspberry Pi Pico HAT. We offer, among others, various output expanders that allow you to expand the number of inputs and outputs on the board. You will find, for example, stations to which you connect Pico and selected expansion modules. In addition, our range also includes peripherals for the Raspberry Pi Pico in the form of keyboards for data entry and screens that allow you to display information (for example, we offer LED, liquid crystal and e-paper displays). Our offer also includes modules with Pico environmental sensors (gyroscope, barometer, accelerometer, etc.) and a real-time clock or a headphone amplifier. All products available in this category have full technical documentation, while the manufacturer's website also includes tips and guides for using the Raspberry Pi Pico HAT board and extensions.
