Raspberry Pi Pico is a micro-controller class board exclusively from Raspberry Foundation. It is it is built on brand new RP2040. According to the foundation, Raspberry Pi Pico will remain in production until at least January, 2028. You need to pay  just $4 to get this beautiful device.

 

Meet Raspberry Pi Pico, Raspberry Silicon From Raspberry Foundation [Specs]

RP2040 is manufactured on a modern 40nm process node, delivering high performance, low dynamic power consumption, and low leakage, with a variety of low-power modes to support extended-duration operation on battery power. Raspberry Pi Pico pairs RP2040 with 2MB of Flash memory, and a power supply chip supporting input voltages from 1.8-5.5V. It provides 26 GPIO pins, three of which can function as analogue inputs, on 0.1”-pitch through-hole pads with castellated edges. Raspberry Pi Pico is available as an individual unit, or in 600-unit reels for automated assembly.
