The Banana Pi Pico series is a low-power microcontroller development board designed for the Internet of Things.

BPI-Pico-RP2040 is a microcontroller development board launched by Banana Pi equipped with RP2040 chip. Its most notable feature is to add a Onboard WS2812 color LED; replace the 3-Pin DEBUG interface with a JST SH 1mm 4-Pin socket, which can be connected with Qwiic & STEMMA QT or any possible peripherals; replace the micro-USB socket with a USB Type-C socket , supports reversible insertion, and is compatible with the USB Type-C cable of most modern smartphones, no additional purchase is required.

The pin spacing is compatible with universal boards (hole boards, dot matrix boards) and breadboards, which is convenient for debugging applications.




MicroPython implements most of the features and syntax of Python 3, which is easy to learn and use, and can be downloaded directly into the chip to run the verification program without compiling.

Regardless of whether you have a programming foundation or not, MicroPython is far less difficult to get started with than other programming languages. Its code is easy to read, and the open source community has accumulated rich resources over the years. Just like Python, it has strong vitality and application value.
