Big news! Raspberry Pi has just released a new MCU and a development board to go with it — Raspberry Pi Pico, based on the RP2040 MCU.
This MCU is suitable for the customization of high-complexity and high-performance electronic products. In order to help our customers use this excellent microcontroller to make the design ideas into products faster and more preferentially, Seeed has launched a sponsored event, giving away 5 pieces of Pico for PCB Assembly service for FREE.
As an approved reseller of Raspberry Pi products and peripherals, Seeed is proud to support the release of the RP2040 and Pico. The Raspberry Pi Pico is now available in the Seeed Bazaar , but to further support the uptake of the new chip, Seeed is giving away 5 Pico boards free with Seeed Fusion PCB Assembly orders using the modules.
What is Raspberry Pi Pico?
Raspberry Pi Pico is the first product using Raspberry Pi’s own MCU, the RP2040. The chip features two ARM Cortex-M0+ cores clocked at 133MHz; 256KB RAM and 6 dedicated IO for SPI Flash. Designed to be flexible while cost-effective, Raspberry Pi Pico has 2MB onboard QSPI Flash memory and gives you access to the 30 GPIO pins and a broad range of interfacing options.
The Pico board features a multifunctional castellated hole/pad design, allowing headers to be soldered onto the pads as commonly seen on development boards, or the entire board can be treated as a surface-mountable module. The modules are provided in a tape and reel format to further support SMT assembly.
Equipped with a MicroPython port, detailed documentation and easy installation, Pico is well suited for beginners. But Pico also has the power and flexibility to cater to professional users, whatever your application from machine learning, smart homes, wearables, to robotics.
PCBA Sponsorship for Raspberry Pi Pico
To celebrate the release of the new board and encourage development with the new MCU, Seeed are sponsoring Raspberry Pi Pico designs with the Seeed Fusion PCBA service. If your design uses Pico, apply now and get 5 free Pico modules when your design is made by us.
How to apply:
What you need to do are just fill in the form and complete your Pico design.
Please click the link and fill in the form:
We will send you the coupon when you are ready to place a PCB assembly order based on Pico design. If you are looking for a cost-effective yet powerful microcontroller for your next design, don’t miss this opportunity.
Committed to providing one-stop electronic hardware services for over a decade, Seeed Fusion has the expertise and engineering insight to deliver streamlined PCB assembly at low costs and is equipped with a wide range of value-added services and capabilities. Our signature Design for Assembly service verifies your design to avoid costly design errors and ensure a smooth production run.
Working closely with Raspberry Pi, and developing and manufacturing our own Raspberry Pi designs, Seeed are very familiar with the parts that go into the boards and can pass on this expertise onto your products.
In addition, Seeed has opened Fusion Marketplace, an international platform to launch your designs and sell to customers around the world through various sales modes. Initiate a Groupbuy campaign or work with us with the authorized products program. Start selling with Seeed with Fusion Marketplace.
Business users will also be interested in Seeed’s free prototyping sponsorship for business users. When you prototype with Seeed Fusion, and your product reaches the batch production stage, we will deduct all the prototyping costs for that design up to 6% of the batch production value.
