Image of Board

The Melopero Shake RP2040 is a powerful development board based on the Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller, programmable in C/C++, MicroPython, CircuitPython and Arduino.

The board features:

  • 16MB of FLASH Memory
  • 3.7-4.2 LiPo battery charger (200mA charge curret)
  • Battery monitor (it sends an alert when the battery voltage drops at 3.4V)
  • Reset and boot buttons (no need to detach/attach the board to enter boot mode)
  • Qwiic/Stemma QT connector for attaching lots of Melopero, Adafruit and * SparkFun sensors
  • Classic Feather pinout for maximum compatibility
  • USB-C connector for powering, programming and charging
  • JST 2-pin connector for attaching the battery (we follow the Adafruit and SparkFun batteries polarity)
  • Green user LED on pin 13
  • RGB WS2812 LED (aka NeoPixel)
  • Orange LED for signaling the charging status
  • SWD header for debugging
  • 4 mounting holes
  • Programmable in C/C++, MicroPython, CircuitPython and Arduino

Dimensions: 2.0” x 0.9” x 0.28” (50.8mm x 22.8mm x 7.05/max height)

The RP2040 key features:

  • Dual ARM Cortex-M0+ @ 133MHz
  • 264kB on-chip SRAM in six independent banks
  • Support for up to 16MB of off-chip Flash memory via dedicated QSPI bus
  • DMA controller
  • Fully-connected AHB crossbar
  • Interpolator and integer divider peripherals
  • On-chip programmable LDO to generate core voltage
  • 2 on-chip PLLs to generate USB and core clocks
  • 30 GPIO pins, 4 of which can be used as analogue inputs
  • Peripherals
    • 2 UARTs
    • 2 SPI controllers
    • 2 I2C controllers
    • 16 PWM channels
    • USB 1.1 controller and PHY, with host and device support
    • 8 PIO state machines


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.
