Get to know the Raspberry Pi Pico

Raspberry Pi Pico is the first microcontroller-grade product released by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Built on the RP2040 chip.

If you have used Arduino or some development boards that support MicroPython, you should be familiar with this type of microcontroller product (MCU).
Ultra-low power consumption, extremely low I/O latency, low price and simple control methods make the Raspberry Pi Pico as easy to use as other MCUs,
and can be widely used.
