Course Description

Micropython is a lightweight version of the Python 3 programming language designed for microcontrollers with a minimum of 256KB of ROM and 16KB of RAM. MicroPython supports chips like ESP32,ESP8266,STM32,nRF52,W600, RP2040 etc.

Raspberry Pi RP2040 is a new microcontroller based on ARM M0+ architecture. Which is developed completely by the Raspberry PI foundation. MIcroPython coding is easy for students who want to learn embedded systems.

This course mainly covers the basics of MicroPython with different sections, Python 3 syntax, GPIO controlling, and will update with more robotics projects soon. Students can expect regular updates on RPi PICO with MicroPython.

In this course, the software used is free of cost.

Features of the board

RP2040 microcontroller chip designed by Raspberry Pi in the United Kingdom.

Dual-core Arm Cortex M0+ processor, the flexible clock running up to 133 MHz.264KB of SRAM, and 2MB of onboard Flash memory. The castellated module allows soldering directly to carrier boards. USB 1.1 with device and host support. Low-power sleep and dormant modes. Drag-and-drop programming using mass storage over USB. 26 × multi-function GPIO pins.2 × SPI, 2 × I2C, 2 × UART, 3 × 12-bit ADC, 16 × controllable PWM channels. Accurate clock and timer on-chip.
