Raspberry Pi Pico Release!
The Raspberry Pi Foundation released a new microcontroller today called the Pico! It uses a custom chip they designed themselves, and is a very competitive entry in the microcontroller market.
Unlike most Raspberry Pi boards, MicroPython and C++ programming runs directly on the hardware without an operating system in between. This allows the Pico to use far less power than a Pi Zero. It also features a wide range of GPIO inputs including analog inputs, which the other Pi boards lack.
