Description

Cytron Maker Pi RP2040 features the first microcontroller designed by Raspberry Pi – RP2040, embedded on a robot controller board. This board comes with dual channel DC motor driver, 4 servo motor ports and 7 Grove I/O connectors, ready for your next DIY robot / motion control project. Now you can build robot, while trying out the new RP2040 chip.

Features:

Powered by Rapberry Pi RP2040
Dual-core Arm Cortex-M0+ processor
264KB internal RAM
2MB of Flash memory
the exact same specifications with Raspberry Pi Pico
Robot controller board
4x Servo motors
2x DC motors with quick test buttons
Versatile power circuit
Automatic power selection: USB 5V, LiPo (1-cell) or Vin (3.6-6V)
Built-in 1-cell LiPo/Li-Ion charger (over-charged & over-discharged protection)
Power on/off switch
13x Status indicator LEDs for GPIO pins
1x Piezo buzzer with mute switch
2x Push button
2x RGB LED (Neopixel)
7x Grove ports (flexible I/O options: digital, analog, I2C, SPI, UART…)
Preloaded with CircuitPython by default
Mouting holes
4x 4.8mm mounting hole (LEGO® pin compatible)
6x M3 screw hole

The DC motor driver onboard is able to control 2x brushed DC motors or 1x bipolar/unipolar stepper motor rated from 3.6V to 6V, providing up to 1A current per channel continuously. The built-in Quick Test buttons and motor output LEDs allow functional test of the motor driver in a quick and convenient way, without the need of writing any code. Vmotor for both DC and servo motors depends on the input voltage supplied to the board.

Maker Pi RP2040 features all the goodness of Cytron’s Maker series products. It too has lots of LEDs useful for troubleshooting (& visual effects), is able to make quite some noise with the onboard piezo buzzer and comes with push buttons ready to detect your touch.


There are three ways to supply power to the Maker Pi RP2040 – via USB (5V) socket, with a single cell LiPo/Li-Ion battery or through the VIN (3.6-6V) terminals. However only one power source is needed to power up both controller board and motors at a time. Power supply from all these power sources can all be controlled with the power on/off switch onboard.

Cytron Maker Pi RP2040 is basically the Raspberry Pi Pico + Maker series’ goodness + Robot controller & other useful features. Therefore this board is compatible with the existing Pico ecosystem. Software, firmware, libraries and resources that are developed for Pico should work seamlessly with Cytron Maker Pi RP2040 too.
