Adafruit has this week announced the arrival of the Espruino Pico to their store priced at $24.95 and takes the form of a tiny board that has an STM32 microcontroller pre-programmed with Espruino.
The Espruino Pico board is all ready to go straight out of the box and even comes with a warning from Adafruit : “Warning: if you only use Assembly and think that even embedded C/C++ is for wimps, this device might explody your head.”
All the eatures of the new Espruino Pico 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
