Raspberry Pi Pico

Tutorial videos in which I discuss Raspberry Pi Pico module and its RP2040 ARM microcontroller. Initially it is focused on using the Pico in my other series: the Intel 8088 computer as a peripheral device using it s PIO block to implement the 8088 data/address bus signals to be able the two to talk to each other.


All the source code and schematics for this series can be found on GitHub:

Software used in this series:

PIO explained

Introduction to Raspberry Pi Pico microcontroller and its PIO – Programmable I/O block.

In this first video of the series I:

  • what is so great about the RPi Pico’s RP2040 comparing to other microcontrollers
  • what is PIO, how it works and how to use it
  • PIO’s assembler instructions
  • how to write programmes for the PIO
  • 4 different example PIO programmes explained line by line
