The Electronic Clock for Raspberry Pi Pico is an LED digit electronic clock project designed for the Raspberry Pi Pico!
It incorporates a high precision Real-time Clock (RTC) chip, photosensor, buzzer and buttons, and features multiple functions including an accurate electronic clock, temperature display, auto-brightness adjustment, alarm and custom button configuration.
Open-source code and development tutorials with C/C++ examples are provided to help you get started and make your very own original electronic clock! The USB connection provides both power and a debugging interface for programming.
A Raspberry Pi Pico is not included - click here if you'd like to buy one. Your Pico will need to have male headers soldered to it with the pins pointing downwards (or grab one of our pre-soldered Picos). You will also need a CR2032 battery.
Note: Some simple assembly required.
