Raspberry Pi Pico

The Raspberry Pi Pico series is a range of tiny, fast, and versatile boards built using RP2040, the flagship microcontroller chip designed by Raspberry Pi in the UK.


Only the Pico W has WiFi/BLE capabilities. Meshtastic supports WiFi on the Pico W (although no web server and HTTP API), but does not currently support BLE.


  • MCU:
    • Raspberry Pi RP2040
      • Dual M0+ Core
      • 133MHz CPU Clock
  • Connectors (On Pico):
    • Micro-USB on Pico

Please be aware that the Raspberry Pi Pico must be used in combination with a Waveshare LoRa Module, which provides the necessary SX1262 LoRa radio. Please ensure to select the correct frequency for your region.

  • LoRa Transceiver (On LoRa Module):
    • SX1262
  • Frequency Options:
    • 410 - 525 MHz
    • 863 - 870 MHz
    • 902 - 930 MHz
  • Connectors (On LoRa Module):
    • U.FL/IPEX antenna connector for LoRa
    • 1.25mm 2-Pin JST for battery

LoRa transmissions may interfere with the USB connection. It is recommended to place the antenna as far away from the USB port as possible.
