Maker Nano RP2040

by Cytron Technologies

Image of Board

The Maker Nano RP2040 is a small but powerful MCU for your project. Same Arduino Nano form factor, but powered by a RP2040 MCU. This also means that it’s compatible with some of the daughter boards for Arduino Nano in the market. Not to forget it’s also breadboard friendly to allow building your own circuit.

The board has a lot of LEDs. Those LEDs are not just for a nice visual effect, they also represent the status of each pins. There are also two RGB LEDs (WS2812 Neopixel) to make your life more colorful. The onboard piezo buzzer and the sliding switch are additional hardware items which are present.

The Raspberry Pi RP2040 MCU can be programmed with C/C++ (natively or with Arduino IDE support), MicroPython or CircuitPython.

The I/O voltage is only 3.3 V and it’s not 5 V compatible.

Absolute Newest

Every time we commit new code to CircuitPython we automatically build binaries for each board and language. The binaries are stored on Amazon S3, organized by board, and then by language. Try them if you want the absolute latest and are feeling daring or want to see if a problem has been fixed.

Past Releases

All previous releases are listed on GitHub, with release notes, and are available for download from Amazon S3. They are handy for testing, but otherwise we recommend using the latest stable release. Some older GitHub release pages include the same binaries for downloading. But we have discontinued including binaries as assets on newer release pages because of the large number of files for each release.
