Best RP2040 Boards 2021 | Tom’s Hardware

While Raspberry Pi boards have been around since 2012, they have been powered by Broadcom SoCs and the first Raspberry Pi silicon, the RP2040, just launched in January 2021. With two Arm Cortex M0+ cores running at 133 MHz, 264KB of RAM and up to 16MB of Flash, these chips enable a whole ecosystem of microcontrollers that compete more closely with traditional Arduino boards than a Raspberry Pi 4.

While Raspberry Pi has its own RP2040-powered board in the Raspberry Pi Pico, there are now more than a dozen, third-party solutions that offer improvements which range from smaller sizes to built-in Wi-Fi, more storage or a lot of additional outputs. There are even RP2040-powered keypads.
