Are you ready to take your Raspberry Pi Pico skills to the next level? This jam-packed Pico evaluation board from Waveshare features a host of different features to try with your Pico.

A 3.5" 65K LCD display can be found on one side, with a buffet of different onboard components on the other, including a 3.5mm audio jack, MicroSD card slot, PH2.0 LiPo battery header with charging circuit, 9-axis motion sensor, programmable button (GP2), RGB LED, buzzer and photoresistor! You'll also find a reset button and indication LEDs. Phew!

The evaluation board allows you to try almost every on-chip peripheral of the RP2040, eliminating the need for breadboards and jumper wires. It's a great board for learning how to do different things with the Pico and the RP2040 chip.

This module includes female headers that allow you to just push your Pico onto the board, making connecting the Raspberry Pi Pico fast and easy.

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).
