The newly launched Arduino Nano Connec RP2040t along with Raspberry Pi Pico offer distinct development platforms designed for the Raspberry Pi microcontroller RP2040. They are priced at a competitive price to facilitate installation in production systems.

The Arduino Nano Connect The RP2040 is pin-compatible with the Nano form factor, which is familiar engineers who work using Raspberry Pi and Arduino. It is based on the microcontroller called RP2040, which has dual ARM Cortex-M0+ processors as well as SRAM of 264KB and is made to be used in IoT or machine learning-related applications. The board comes with a U-blox WI-Fi INA W102 and Bluetooth radio, 16MB on-board QSPI flash, a 6-axis IMU (IMU which is i.e. accelerometer and the gyroscope) and an RGB LED with 20 electronic GPIO pins, and eight analog inputs. It’s suitable for use to Arduino Cloud.


This Raspberry Pi Pico has 2MB of QSPI-based flash memory onboard and 26 multi-functional GPIO pins including three that are available for analog inputs, and an on-board buck-boost regulator. Development tools include drag-and-drop programming via micro-USB. It also has three pins for serial wire debug (SWD) to allow interactive debugging and the C software development kit (SDK) and an advanced MicroPython port. The board comes with castellated pads and was one of the very first boards for development based using the RP2040 microcontroller. It was the first board to be developed in-house by the Raspberry Pi


Lee Turner, global head of semiconductors and SBC at Farnell Lee Turner, global head of semiconductors and SBC at Farnell, said: “RP2040, Raspberry Pi’s first silicon in-house . . . . is rapidly becoming loved by design engineers and makers, as well as the world’s top electronic manufacturers. . . We are pleased to provide our customers a larger available range of high-powered and efficient development boards as well as innovative products to help assist in their design and projects.”

Farnell stocks the full assortment of Raspberry Pi single-board computers that are suitable for commercial, professional and educational purposes as well as for home use. It comes with a range of accessories like cases micro-HDMI cables, power supplies along with the Raspberry Pi high-resolution camera.

Development boards are readily available to be delivered quickly.
