Introduction of Pico

No one expected that Raspberry Pi, the most popular single-board computer maker in the world, would suddenly release a microcontroller of its own. What's more surprising is that Raspberry Pi Pico does not base its design on the common ESP32 or SAMD21, but instead a brand new microcontroller chip: the RP2040 microcontroller. The RP2040 microcontroller is a
microcontroller chip independently designed by Raspberry Pi, and is powered by a dual-core ARM Cortex-M0+ processor that runs up to 133Mhz.


In addition to the powerful new chip, the board of Raspberry Pi Pico exposes 26 multifunction GPIO pins, including 2 * SPI, 2 * I2C, 2 * UART, 3 * 12-bit ADC, and 16 controllable PWM channels. I will explain the functions of these pins in later chapters.

In addition to these GPIO pins, Pico also has eight ground pins and a series of power pins. In this course, however, we will not utilize them as we will not be performing tedious wiring with breadboards or DuPont wires when building projects. The expansion board — Grove Shield for Pi Pico — will helps you do this instead.
