Micropython is a lightweight version of Python 3 programming language designed for microcontrollers with a minimum of 256KB of ROM and 16KB of RAM. MicroPython supports chips like ESP32,ESP8266,STM32,nRF52,W600, RP2040 etc.
Raspberry Pi RP2040 is a new microcontroller based on ARM M0+ architecture. Which is developed completely Raspberry PI foundation. MIcroPython coding is easy for students who want to learn the embedded systems.
This course mainly covers the basics of MicroPython with different sections, Python 3 syntax, GPIO controlling, and will update with more robotics projects soon. Students can expect regular updates on RPi PICO with MicroPython.
In this course, the software used is free of cost.
