The Maker Pi RP2040 features the first microcontroller designed by Raspberry Pi - the RP2040 - embedded on a robot controller board! The board comes with a 2-channel DC motor driver, 4 servo motor ports, 7 Grove I/O connectors, and lots of LEDs for troubleshooting and visual effects.
The DC motor driver on board is able to control two brushed DC motors or a single bipolar/unipolar stepper motor. The built-in Quick Test buttons and motor output LEDs allow a functional test of the motor driver in a quick and convenient way without the need of writing any test code. The board features push buttons ready to detect your touch. In addition, the board also can be used to play tone or melody with Piezo Buzzer! Sure, you can use Buzzer Mute Switch to mute the piezo buzzer.
All the designs can provide developers with a better experience in DIY robot/motion control projects.
The board is compatible with the existing Pico ecosystem, Software, firmware, libraries and resources that are developed for Pico should work seamlessly with Cytron Maker Pi RP2040 too. CircuitPython is preloaded on the Maker Pi RP2040, so it’s very easy to get started. The board supports commonly programming languages as well, so you are free to use MicroPython and C/C++ for Pico/RP2040.
