The Newest XIAO Board from Seeed Studio has a Raspberry Pi RP2040, thumb-sized development board.

The XIAO RP2040 from Seeed is the newest RP2040-based development board, and it has 11 GPIO pins, an RGB LED, and two buttons.


The XIAO RP2040, a development board for ultra-compact microcontrollers based on the Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller, has been released by Seeed Studio.

It is quite affordable, and Seeed Studio offers Free Shipping till 31st August, XIAO RP2040 has a small size, and a comprehensive user interface. As a result, the Seeeduino XIAO has gained acceptance for usage in several maker projects as well as in classrooms all around the world.

The Seeeduino XIAO, which translates to simply "little," was the company's first product. Now, the XIAO RP2040 is its successor.

Four analog inputs, 11 general-purpose input/output (GPIO) pins with complete support for pulse-width modulation (PWM), and a design that is appropriate for both breadboard usage and surface mounting as a module to other boards are also included on the board. Power and data connectivity are both provided through a USB Type-C connector.

The board is capable of running any firmware and language that an RP2040 can, including the official Arduino core and both MicroPython and CircuitPython. Additionally, it has proven to be well-liked: According to ChunChun, "the initial batch was sold out within two hours of becoming life, with the projected shipment date for the second batch being in early October."

The usage of the Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller on the board is not new to Seeed. Earlier this year, the business introduced the Wio RP2040, a bigger breadboard-compatible board that combined the RP2040 with a Wi-Fi module for the Internet of Things (IoT) projects.

More details can be found on the Seeed wiki, and those who are interested may sign up to get notifications when the board restocks at its regular price of $5.40 (before volume reductions) at the Seeed shop.
