Some of our readers may remember the tiny Espruino Pico development board that was launched via Kickstarter during October 2014. The team behind the board, have now released a demonstration video of how the small Espruino Pico board can be used to create a home computer.
The Espruino Pico is now available to purchase from the developers website as well as from the likes of Adafruit and more. To learn how to make your very own Espruino Pico home computer jump over to the official Espruino Pico website via the link below.
Features include :
– 22 GPIO pins: 9 analog inputs, 21 PWM, 2 serial, 3 SPI, 3 I2C
– All GPIO is 3.3V but 5 volt tolerant
– 2 rows of 9 0.1″ pins, with a third 0.05″ row of 8 pins on the end
– On-board USB “PCB Type” connector, plugs right into any computer USB port
– Two on-board LEDs and one button
– STM32F401CDU6 CPU – ARM Cortex
– On-board 3.3v 250mA voltage regulator, accepts voltages from 3.5v to 16v
– Current draw in sleep: < 0.05mA – over 2.5 years on a 2500mAh battery
– On-board FET can be used to drive high-current outputs
