Trenz Electronic Zynqberry FPGA

Trenz Electronic Zynqberry FPGA

The Zynqberry FPGA development board is a Xilinx Zynq based board that takes on the universally recognized form-factor of the Raspberry Pi Model B ARM-based SBC (single board computer). Trenz Electronic is responsible for the design of the Zynqberry and has even created a followup board to it, the ZynqberryZero, which as one can probably […]

Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect

Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect

Arduino has released the Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect, their first board based on the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s RP2040 microcontroller. It’s clear with this board that Arduino wanted to add significant value, rather than just package an RP2040 in a familiar footprint. The most distinctive element of the Nano RP2040 Connect is the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth […]

Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W

Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W

THERE’S A NEW RASPBERRY PI ! But wait, there’s already more than a dozen models of Pi to choose from. What makes this one interesting? It’s a souped up model Zero W: The new Zero 2 W. As a Pi Zero model, it’s under half the size of the common Pi (model A or B), […]

Seeed Studio Spartan Edge Accelerator FPGA Board

Seeed Studio Spartan Edge Accelerator FPGA Board

The Spartan Edge Accelerator Board (SEA for short) is an FPGA development board with a standout form factor that we all know well: the Arduino shield. But those familiar with FPGAs might ask “Why would I want this? Aren’t Arduinos and FPGAs on the opposite sides of both the complexity and ease-of-use spectrums?” The SEA […]

Raspberry Pi Pico

Raspberry Pi Pico

The Raspberry Pi Pico is the first microcontroller developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. It’s powered by the RP2040 chip, an all-new design created in-house by Raspberry Pi (their first foray into custom silicon), which features a dual-core 133MHz Arm Cortex-M0+ processor with 264KB of RAM and supports up to 16MB of off-chip flash memory. […]

SparkFun MicroMod RP2040

SparkFun MicroMod RP2040

The first custom microcontroller chip from the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the RP2040, is here and SparkFun has put it on a MicroMod board to integrate with their MicroMod system of carrier boards. With the addition of the RP2040, SparkFun offers seven different microcontroller chips on MicroMod boards. The boards attach via an M.2 socket to […]

SparkFun Pro Micro RP2040

SparkFun Pro Micro RP2040

The SparkFun Pro Micro RP2040 takes the new RP2040 microcontroller chip from the Raspberry Pi Foundation and puts it in a minimal form factor. Previously, SparkFun used the Pro Micro form factor with an ATmega32u4 to provide the functionality of an Arduino Leonardo: the usual GPIO, analog inputs and PWM outputs plus native USB support. […]
