Raspberry PI, a self-developed chip, was used to build a popular raspberry PI Pico development board and is now on sale as an independent chip.

Shanghai, China, June 1, 2021 – Evo, the global distributor of electronic components and solutions of Avril, announced the supply of rp2040 chip independently developed by raspberry PI. The chip has the characteristics of high performance, low cost and ease of use. It is the core building module of raspberry PI Pico, which costs only $4.

Any professional design engineer who has been proficient in using raspberry PI will be able to use raspberry PI Pico easily, and will be convinced by its high ease of use and high cost performance.

Its main features include:

  • The dual core arm Cortex-M0 + processor runs at 133 MHz
  • 264kb SRAM on chip
  • 30 multifunctional GPIO pins
  • Special hardware suitable for common peripherals and programmable I / O subsystem supporting extended peripherals
  • Four channel ADC with internal temperature sensor
  • USB 1.1 port with host and device support

“We are very pleased that raspberry PI has chosen to sell this chip as a stand-alone component,” said Lee Turner, director of Farnell and e-lom’s global semiconductor and single board business. The popular raspberry PI Pico is based on rp2040. It will change the microcontroller market just as the original raspberry PI development board changes the single board computer market. With rp2040, customers can choose to use raspberry PI Pico in the design phase and then switch to rp2040 in the production phase, which provides excellent flexibility and huge opportunities for design engineers. “

E-luomeng is the distributor partner of raspberry PI foundation with the longest cooperation time, and its sales volume of raspberry PI development board has exceeded 15 million units. E-league now has a full range of raspberry PI single board computers in stock, including the latest raspberry PI Pico, which can provide support for users to build household, professional, teaching or commercial applications. In addition, customers can also get technical support services 5 days a week and 8 hours a day, and can visit e-league website and practical online resources of e-league community.

Customers can purchase raspberry PI RP 2040 through Farnell (Europe, Middle East and Africa), Newark (North America) and E-Link (Asia Pacific) from June 1.
