Raspberry Pi at Embedded World 2022

We’ve got a very soft spot for Embedded World. It’s one of Europe’s biggest tech shows, and it just happens to be the place we launched the original Raspberry Pi back in 2012, when we were all ten years younger and had no idea where this thing was taking us. We’re back again this year, all grown up.

This year’s event will be the first trade show we’ve been able to attend in person since everything went a bit weird at the end of 2019. Since then, we’ve launched our first microcontroller, RP2040; we’ll be showcasing that product, and sharing some features and use cases to help people get a handle on what it can do.

A recap for those who haven’t been reading this blog obsessively (why not?) over the last couple of years: RP2040 is the first microchip we’ve designed ourselves here in Cambridge. Like everything else we do, it’s been engineered to offer high performance, low cost, and ease of use. There are two Arm Cortex-M0+ cores clocked at 133MHz and 264kB of on-chip SRAM in there, with flexible I/O options. It’s a small and powerful 7mm × 7mm package, with just two square millimetres of 40nm silicon.

RP2040 has been enormously popular; it’s found a home in IoT sensors, industrial controllers, USB peripherals, and a ton of other industrial applications. It’s also being used by makers to do some really fun stuff. We’re looking forward to meeting all the companies who have been using it (and if you’re not already, we will be there to twist your arm. Gently. Lovingly.)

We’re planning some in-person surprises for all those who attend Embedded World this year, so be sure to look out for our booth next week (Hall 4A, booth 101). Drop by and say hi — we’ve been starved of company and want to see you. And if you’re not attending, we’ll have a wrap-up here at the end of the show.

It’ll be GREAT to see you again – I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to a trade show this much, which is entirely an artefact of Covid. It’s been grim not meeting anybody since 2020; I think I saw you on the meetings roster, but please swing by the stand and say hi too!

Using RasberryPi for a couple of time. HDMI, multiple USB, Ethernet, onboard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, many GPIOs, USB powered, etc. are some amazing features tha attract me towards it. Excited to know about the RP2040 microcontroller!
