Board specifications

RP2040-LCD-0.96 is a low-cost, high-performance Pico-like MCU board with flexible digital interfaces. It incorporates Raspberry Pi's RP2040 microcontroller chip, as same as the one on Raspberry Pi Pico. For software development, either Raspberry Pi's C/C++ SDK, or the MicroPython is available, which makes it easy for you to get started, and integrate it into end products quickly.

In additional, there're also onboard 0.96inch IPS display, Lithium battery recharge/discharge header, and high efficiency DC-DC buck-boost chip.

Key features include:

  • RP2040 microcontroller chip designed by Raspberry Pi in the United Kingdom
  • Dual-core Arm Cortex M0+ processor, flexible clock running up to 133 MHz
  • 264KB of SRAM, and 2MB of on-board Flash memory
  • USB-C connector, keeps it up to date, easier to use
  • 0.96inch 160×80 pixels 65K colorful IPS LCD display
  • Lithium battery recharge/discharge header, suitable for mobile devices
  • Onboard DC-DC chip MP28164, high efficiency DC-DC buck-boost chip, maximum 2A load current
  • Castellated module allows soldering direct to carrier boards (there should be dedicated cut-out for embedding the bottom components)
  • USB 1.1 with device and host support
  • Low-power sleep and dormant modes
  • Drag-and-drop programming using mass storage over USB
  • 26 × multi-function GPIO pins
  • 2 × SPI, 2 × I2C, 2 × UART, 3 × 12-bit ADC, 16 × controllable PWM channels
  • Accurate clock and timer on-chip
  • Temperature sensor
  • Accelerated floating-point libraries on-chip
  • 8 × Programmable I/O (PIO) state machines for custom peripheral support
