New Raspberry Pi announcement brings new excitement. This is no different. It's as exciting as any other Raspberry Pi new product announcement.
Please welcome, a new member to the Raspberry Pi Pico family, Raspberry Pi Pico W. The same Pico you know and love but with Wifi and Bluetooth. Pi Pico W is a micro-controller board based on in-house custom designed chip (RP2040) by Raspberry Pi in the UK. RP2040, the chip at the heart of Pico, is an ultra powerful Dual Core ARM Cortex-M0+ clocked at 133MHz with 256KB RAM, 2MB of on-board QSPI Flash memory for code and data storage. It also has 30 GPIO pins and lots of interfacing options including 2 × SPI, 2 × I2C, 2 × UART, 3 × 12-bit ADC, 16 × controllable PWM channels. Moreover, 26 of the GPIO pins are multi-function, which means we can configure those pins to a different behaviour like UART/I2C/SPI/GPIO. The wireless functionality of the Pico W is powered by Infineon CYW43439
wireless chip. CYW43439 supports IEEE 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN,
and Bluetooth 5.2; of these, only wireless LAN is supported at the moment.
ABOUT RASPBERRY PI
The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We do this so that more people are able to harness the power of computing and digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.
