The Arduino with a Raspberry Pi filling - available with or without headers pre-soldered (select above).

The Nano RP2040 Connect fits the Arduino Nano form factor, making it a small board with BIG features. The brain of the board is the Raspberry Pi RP2040 silicon; a dual-core Arm Cortex M0+ running at 133MHz. It has 264KB of SRAM, and the 16MB of flash memory is off-chip to give you extra storage.

But what’s really exciting is the onboard connectivity options. The hugely popular and highly adaptable u-blox NINA-W102 radio module is on there to make this a true IoT champion. This also means you can harness the power of the cloud, with fully Arduino Cloud compatibility.

It’s got onboard, built-in sensors to turn your builds into powerhouse projects, too. Microphone and motion-sensing add a depth of possibilities that’s almost impossible to find in a board of this size.

The Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect is the premium choice for RP2040 devices, and the perfect option for upgrading your projects and unlocking the potential of new ones.

Get Connected

The u-blox NINA-W102 radio module makes this the only connected RP2040 option. It gives you full WiFi 802.11b/g/n connectivity, along with Bluetooth® and BLE v4.2

Sensor Overload

Packed onto this tiny board are a couple of very useful sensors. A built-in mic is there for sound activation, audio control and even AI voice recognition. The six-axis smart IMU with AI capabilities tells the board which way it’s moving and adds fall sensing and double-tap activation.

Hard Working Hardware

It might be a small board, but the Nano RP2040 Connect packs a hardware punch. It matches the established Arduino Nano form factor, making it the perfect upgrade for projects of all sizes.

More Memory

With 16MB flash memory that’s external to the microprocessor, there are bags of room for your code and storage needs.

Power Pins

The programmable I/O pins have functions that bigger boards only dream of; 22 digital, 20 with PWM and 8 analogue.

Raspberry Pi Compatible

Smart software options for a very smart device. It has full support for the entire RP2040 software ecosystem.

Arduino Lover

Supports the Arduino programming language, the IDE 2.0 and all those awesome libraries.

Python Power

Full support for MicroPython. Get a Nano RP2040 Connect, and it comes with a FREE OpenMV license for machine vision.

Arduino Cloud Ready

Program and operate the Nano RP2040 Connect directly from your browser. Fully compatible from day one. Upload your sketches remotely over the air with instant remote control from the free Arduino IoT Remote smartphone app. The Arduino Nano RP connect is also available without headers mounted

FAQ

  • Can I power the Nano RP2040 with a battery?
    • Batteries: the Nano RP2040 Connect has no battery connector, nor charger. You can connect any external battery of your liking as long as you respect the voltage limits of the board.
  • Does the Nano RP2040 have I2C pins? / Can I use I2C communication with the Nano RP2040?
    • I2C pins: Pins A4 and A5 have an internal pull-up and default to be used as an I2C Bus so use as analogue inputs is not recommended.
    • Operating voltage: The operating voltage for Nano RP2040 Connect is 3.3V
  • What is the 5V pin for?
    • 5V: This pin outputs 5V from the board when powered from the USB connector. Note: for it to work, you need to short the VBUS jumper on the back of the board. If you power the board from the VIN pin, you won’t get any regulated 5V and even if you do the solder bridge.
  • Does the Nano RP2040 have PWM pins?
    • PWM: All pins except for A6 and A7 are available for PWM.
  • How can I use the embedded RGB LED?
    • RGB: The RGB LEDs are connected through the Wi-Fi module, so it is required to include the WiFiNINA library to use it.
