YD-RP2040

by VCC-GND Studio

Image of Board

Flexible I/O connects RP2040 to the physical world by allowing it to speak to almost anyexternal device. High performance breezes through integer workloads. Low cost helps ease the barrier to entry.

This isn’t just apowerful chip: it’s designed to help you bring every last drop of that power to bear. With six independent banks of RAM, and a fully connected switch at the heart of its bus fabric, you can easily arrange for the cores and DMA engines to run in parallel without contention.

VCC-GND Studios’ YD-RP2040 has the following improvements over the Raspberry Pi Pico:

  • Added PWR power LED
  • The USB interface was changed to type-C USB
  • Added reset button to facilitate reset operation and firmware update operation.
  • Added the USRkey user button(GPIO24).
  • Added RGB lights(GPIO23)
  • Change PICO’s W25Q16 to W25Q32(4M)/W25Q64(8M)/W25Q128(16M)

CircuitPython 8.0.0-beta.4

This is the latest unstable release of CircuitPython that will work with the YD-RP2040.

Unstable builds have the latest features but are more likely to have critical bugs.

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.
