Image of Board

A postage stamp sized RP2040 development board with a USB-C connection, perfect for portable projects, wearables, and embedding into devices. Tiny 2040 comes with 8MB of QSPI (XiP) flash on board so it can handle projects small and large with ease.

Features

  • Powered by RP2040
  • ARM Cortex M0+ running at up to 133Mhz
  • 264kB of SRAM
  • USB-C connector for power, programming, and data transfer
  • 8MB of QSPI flash supporting XiP
  • User controllable RGB LED
  • Twelve IO pins (including four 12-bit ADC channels)
  • Switch for basic input (doubles up as DFU select on boot)
  • On-board 3V3 regulator

About the RP2040

The RP2040 microcontroller is a dual core ARM Cortex M0+ running at up to 133Mhz. It bundles in 264kB of SRAM, 30 multifunction GPIO pins (including a four channel 12-bit ADC), a heap of standard peripherals (I2C, SPI, UART, PWM, clocks, etc), and USB support.

One very exciting feature of the RP2040 microcontroller are the programmable IOs which allow you to execute custom programs that can manipulate GPIO pins and transfer data between peripherals - they can offload tasks that require high data transfer rates or precise timing that traditionally would have required a lot of heavy lifting from the CPU.

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.
