Raspberry Pi RP2040 Microcontroller (CE07840)

This is a placeholder topic for “Raspberry Pi RP2040 Microcontroller” comments.

RP2040 is Raspberry Pi’s first microcontroller and it features Dual-core Arm Cortex-M0+ with 133Mhz Clock, 264KB SRAM, UART, SPI and I2C support. Along with a whole lot more.

Can we get a link to the QSPI flash for this micro in the “associated products” tab please ?


Hey Kyran,

We do normally have some listed as a recommended essential, but unfortunately we’re out of stock (so it won’t display there):

If we can dig up some other W25Q we’ll let you know!

Hi Kyran,

Welcome to the forum!!

We just got some 16Mbit Flash memory compatible with the RP2040 into the range:

If there are any specifications you’d like added to the product page let us know and we’ll get it updated!

This is absolutely fantastic!
I love the MVP version in the documentation.
Now you have me thinking if I can plan up a custom PCB using this chipset and rolling my own Pi Zero in light of the current shortages.

Awesome, Thanks!

This is for the RP2040, so that’s for the Pi Pico not the zero. It seems there’s no shortage of picos, or other RP2040 based devices


Ahh that makes sense.

Hi All,

Neat lil chip!

@AndrewBG certainly doesn’t mean it can’t be done though, I saw this a lil while back and it looked neat.

Depending on your project there is definitely scope to either strip down the code that runs our outsource the processing - to a Pi 4, PC or even cloud computing like AWS. Regardless it’s always great seeing what PCB designs people come up with!


Ordinarily, yes, and I might look at using this for other projects, but my main one is camera control and image processing, I just dont think that there is enough RAM or processing power in this chip unfortunately, but I’ll have a look at it on the Pi Pico
