Maker Uno RP2040

Image of Board

Students/Makers can skip the hassle of constructing the basic electronic circuit which is boring and time-consuming. Although it is equally important to learn about basic electronics, it can always come later after they have experienced how easy it is to create an awesome project. Start with fun and excitement. Start coding right away and see your board lights up and plays the melody with the press of a button.

For experienced makers, this is also useful to quickly test your code without having to connect any other devices.

With the conventional Arduino boards, makers also face another common problem - difficulty in troubleshooting their circuit. This is because when it doesn’t work, they do not know whether the problem is due to wire connection or coding.

With Maker UNO, the problem is solved! Not only do the onboard LEDs work as outputs, they can also act as indicators, clearly showing what’s happening on that pin. When the pin is used as input, you can clearly see whether the signal is received by just looking at changes on the LEDs.

One of the brilliant features of the official Arduino Uno is the label printed on its pin headers. It saves a lot of time when connecting the I/O pins to the external circuit. So, a set of these label stickers for pin headers is included in each of the Maker UNO! (Please note that you need to peel off the stickers and stick them on your Maker UNO by yourself)

CircuitPython 9.0.0-beta.2

This is the latest development release of CircuitPython that will work with the Maker Uno RP2040.

Alpha development releases are early releases. They are unfinished, are likely to have bugs, and the features they provide may change. Beta releases may have some bugs and unfinished features, but should be suitable for many uses. A Release Candidate (rc) release is considered done and will become the next stable release, assuming no further issues are found.

Please try alpha, beta, and rc releases if you are able. Your testing is invaluable: it helps us uncover and find issues quickly.

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. These releases are even newer than the development release listed above. Try them if you want the absolute latest and are feeling daring or want to see if a problem has been fixed.

Previous Versions of CircuitPython

All previous releases of CircuitPython are available for download from Amazon S3 through the button below. For very old releases, look in the OLD/ folder for each board. Release notes for each release are available at GitHub button below.

Older releases are useful for testing if you something appears to be broken in a newer release but used to work, or if you have older code that depends on features only available in an older release. Otherwise we recommend using the latest stable release.
