In a recent Elektor “Meet the Engineers – Part 1” livestream Raspberry Pi co-founder Eben Upton and SparkFun founder Nathan Seidle discussed their RP2040 boards and, during the livestream, Upton explained the meaning of the digits in the RP2040 name and explored the possible future of the chip which powers the Raspberry Pi Pico , a chip which may only be seen in one more official board. Image 1 of 5 Image 2 of 5 Image 3 of 5 Image 4 of 5 Image 5 of 5 The heart of the Raspberry Pi Pico and other partner boards is the RP2040, a system on chip that provides the Arm Cortex M0+ running at up to 133 MHz with 264KB of SRAM. In the livestream, Upton decoded the RP2040 name. The number 2 is for two cores because the RP2040’s CPU is dual core. The number 0 is for the CPU, an Arm Cortex M0+, the number 4 is for 256KB of RAM 2 ^ 4 x 16KB. The final digit, 0 refers to no flash. Upton then went on to invent another chip to illustrate the convention using a quad core Arm M3 CPU with 256KB of RAM and no… Read full this story
