The Maker Nano RP2040 has the same form-factor as the popular Arduino Nano but is powered by the much more powerful RP2040 from Raspberry Pi.

This also means it's compatible with most of the shields available for the Arduino Nano. It's also breadboard-friendly allowing you to prototype your circuit with ease.

The board also includes some great onboard features such as IO indicator LEDs, 2x Neopixel-compatible RGB LEDs, piezo buzzer, a programmable button and two ports compatible with Qwiic, STEMMA and Grove (via included conversation cable).

Note: The IO voltage is 3.3V and it's not 5V compatible. There are only four ADC inputs (A0 - A3) on the Maker Nano RP2040 compared to the eight on the Arduino Nano.

Simplifying Digital Making

Just like the other Maker series products, there are plentiful LEDs on the Maker Nano RP2040 (well, who doesn't like LEDs?). Those LEDs are not just for a nice visual effect, they also represent the status of each pin and this makes troubleshooting your circuit a breeze.

Not too excited about the single-colour blue LEDs? Worry not! Cytron has also put in two RGB LEDs (WS2812 Neopixel-compatible) to add more colour to your project. You can also program them to dance together with the melody produced by the onboard piezo buzzer. To change to another melody, press the onboard push button. If something goes wrong with your code and the buzzer keeps playing, mute it with the sliding switch.

All of these can be done with the Maker Nano RP2040 alone without additional circuitry. Wiring up your own circuit is always the most tedious part of learning electronics. It's prone to error and sometimes not reversible. We know it because we've gone through that before many times!

When the onboard peripherals are not enough for you, additional sensors or modules can be added via the newly introduced Maker Ports. Utilizing the popular JST-SH 4-way connector, Maker Ports are compatible with Sparkfun Qwiic modules and Adafruit STEMMA QT modules. Qwiic and STEMMA QT use I2C communications and can be daisy-chained. By using the included JST-SH to Grove conversion cables, Maker Ports are compatible with Seeed Grove modules too.

Maker Ports also support UART (Maker Port 0 only), Analog Input (Maker Port 1 only) and Digital Input/Output.

One Board, Multiple Programming Languages

The Raspberry Pi RP2040 can be programmed with C/C++ (Natively or with Arduino IDE support), MicroPython or CircuitPython.

With massive libraries support and examples especially in Arduino IDE and CircuitPython, you will be ready to build your application in no time, be it for learning purposes or for building a useful project.
