Description

The Raspberry Pi Pico is a low-cost, high-performance microcontroller board with flexible digital interfaces. It feature the RP2040 which marks Raspberry Pi’s first microcontroller designed in-house. Pico provides minimal (yet flexible) external circuitry to support the RP2040 chip (Flash, crystal, power supplies and decoupling and USB connector). The majority of the RP2040 microcontroller pins are brought to the user IO pins on the left and right edge of the board. Four RP2040 IO are used for internal functions – driving an LED, on-board Switched Mode Power Supply (SMPS) power control and sensing the system voltages.

Pico uses an on-board buck-boost SMPS which is able to generate the required 3.3 volts (to power RP2040 and externalcircuitry) from a wide range of input voltages (~1.8 to 5.5V). This allows significant flexibility in powering the unit from various sources such as a single Lithium-Ion cell, or 3 AA cells in series. Battery chargers can also be very easily integrated with the Pico powerchain. Reprogramming the Pico’s flash memory can be done using USB (simply drag and drop a file onto the Pico which appears as a mass storage device) or via the Serial Wire Debug (SWD) port. The SWD port can also be used to interactively debug code running on the RP2040

Pico has been designed to use either soldered 0.1″ pin-headers (it is one 0.1″ pitch wider than a standard 40-pin DIP package) or can be used as a surface mountable “module”, as the user IO pins are also castellated. There are SMT pads underneath the USB connector and BOOTSEL button, which allow these signals to be accessed if used as a reflow-soldered SMT module.


Features

  • RP2040 microcontroller chip designed by Raspberry Pi
  • Flexible clock running up to 133 MHz
  • 264kB of SRAM
  • Low-power sleep and dormant modes
  • 26 multi-function GPIO pins
  • 16 x PWM Outputs
  • Accurate clock and timer on-chip
  • Accelerated floating point libraries on-chip
  • Dual-core ARM Cortex M0+ processor
  • 2MB of on-board Flash memory
  • USB 1.1 Host and Device support
  • Drag & drop programming using mass storage over USB
  • 3 x 12-bit Analog Input
  • 2× SPI, 2× I2C, 2× UART
  • Temperature sensor
  • 8 × Programmable IO (PIO) state machines for custom peripheral support

The third hand is an essential workbench accessory. Whether you are building models, soldering wires, or assembling electronics – this tool keeps everything held in place, leaving your hands free to solder, glue, inspect, etc.

The third hand has two position-able “alligator clip” grippers that can be moved and set using the thumbscrews and wing nuts. There is also a magnifying glass that can be positioned to help see those tiny components and details!

If you are working with sensitive parts, or soft items that may be damaged by the alligator grippers, we recommend throwing a little heat shrink tubing over the claws – this will take some of the bite out of the metal, but still maintain a good grip!

You can use the multimeter to measure DC and AC voltage, DC current, resistance, continuity, and test diodes. With this version SparkFun has done away with the bright flashy colors that got them into trouble last time and gone with a nice, neutral gray.

This isn’t your expensive, flashy type of multimeter, this is for all those starving students that need to buy their first good, low-cost digital multimeter. This meter doesn’t have the ability to auto-power off, it isn’t capable of auto-ranging, and it won’t be able to measure frequency. However, with this multimeter you WILL be able to measure DC Voltage from 200mV to 600V, AC Voltage from 200V and 600v, DC Current between 200uA to 10A, and Resistance from 0 to 20M Ohm. We even left a meter on to test the battery life – it lasted more than 170 hours (7 days) before the included 9V gave out!

Welcome to the world of paper circuits – creating electronic projects directly on paper using simple components! The SparkFun Paper Circuits Kit teaches the basics and fundamentals of creating an electric circuit without the need to solder or code a single thing! Using the provided templates, strips of copper tape, and LEDs, the SparkFun Paper Circuits Kit provides you with 10 fun and informative light up robot cards that should only take between five to 10min to assemble! No previous electronics experience is required.

If you are unfamiliar, a paper circuit is a functioning electronic circuit built on a paper surface instead of a circuit board. Projects can range from greeting cards, to origami, to traditional art such as paintings or drawings. What makes them unique is the use of traditional fine art techniques to create a circuit that is combines aesthetics and functionality. Paper circuits are becoming more and more popular in the hobby electronics world. The easy availability of craft-like materials and increasing abundance of new products has created a really unique ecosystem for crafters looking to make the leap to electronics projects.

The only things you will need to get each simple circuit card built, that aren’t included in SparkFun Paper Circuits Kit, are CR2032 coin cell batteries, scissors, a hole punch, tape, and any coloring supplies to make your little robot pop.


Features

  • 10x Printed Robot Template Card
  • 10x Copper Tape – 1ft
  • 10x Yellow LED – 5mm

    Looking for a sturdy, 2 wheel drive chassis to build your first self navigating robot? This aluminum chassis is perfect for the job! The kit is easy to assemble and offers a ton of different mounting points for your microcontroller, servos, sensors, and other additions.

    The chassis is anodized aluminum, and features many pre-tapped mounting holes. The holes are tapped with an M3 thread, meaning the chassis works well with our M3 Nylon Standoff Set. Mounting holes are compatible with most Arduino, and others. The chassis itself may be purple or rose in color.

    The kit includes two 3-6V gearmotors, two wheels, a ball caster wheel, and all of the hardware to assemble it.

    Recommended Motor Drivers for beginners:

     
    Note: For Arduino, BBC micro:bit, and Raspberry Pi applications: we recommend using a 4 x AA battery pack. Most Arduino and Raspberry Pi motor controllers require a minimum of 4.5V to function (including the recommended products above). For Raspberry Pi we recommend a separate power source for the Raspberry Pi capable of supporting the Pi’s power needs.


    Features

    • Motor Voltage: 3-6V
    • Assembled Length: 170mm
    • Assembled Width: 130mm
    • Assembled Height: 66mm
    • Complete chassis kit – just add motor driver, battery pack, & microcontroller
    • Wheel Diameter: 66mm
    • Wheel Width: 16mm
    • Includes all hardware

    The Raspberry Pi Pico Starter Kit is a great way to get the Pico with all of the needed accessories to dive in to this new Microcontroller. The kit includes the Raspberry Pi Pico, a programming cable, the required breadboard compatible headers, a large solderless breadboard, and a bunch of different components to experiment with – 57 pieces in total!

    What is the Pico? The Raspberry Pi Pico is a low-cost, high-performance microcontroller board with flexible digital interfaces. It feature the RP2040 which marks Raspberry Pi’s first microcontroller designed in-house. Pico provides minimal (yet flexible) external circuitry to support the RP2040 chip (Flash, crystal, power supplies and decoupling and USB connector). The majority of the RP2040 microcontroller pins are brought to the user IO pins on the left and right edge of the board. Four RP2040 IO are used for internal functions – driving an LED, on-board Switched Mode Power Supply (SMPS) power control and sensing the system voltages.

    Pico uses an on-board buck-boost SMPS which is able to generate the required 3.3 volts (to power RP2040 and externalcircuitry) from a wide range of input voltages (~1.8 to 5.5V). This allows significant flexibility in powering the unit from various sources such as a single Lithium-Ion cell, or 3 AA cells in series. Battery chargers can also be very easily integrated with the Pico powerchain. Reprogramming the Pico’s flash memory can be done using USB (simply drag and drop a file onto the Pico which appears as a mass storage device) or via the Serial Wire Debug (SWD) port. The SWD port can also be used to interactively debug code running on the RP2040

    Included Parts:
  • 1 x Raspberry Pi Pico
  • 1 x Large Solderless Breadboard
  • 2 x 40 Pin Breakaway Male Header – Standard
