The Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect board combines a Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller with a u-blox NINA-W102 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radio module. Besides wireless connectivity the board is equiped with a microphone for sound and voice activation and a six-axis smart motion sensor with AI capabilities. An RGB LED is available too.

Program memory is plentiful with 16 MB of flash memory, and the board is “Raspberry Pi Compatible”, meaning that it has not only support for the entire RP2040 software ecosystem but also full support for MicroPython. Of course, it also supports the Arduino programming language, the IDE 2.0 and all the libraries that come with that.

The board fits in Arduino's Nano Mbed OS family, a family of small boards measuring only 18 x 43 mm intended for connected IoT applications running ARM's Mbed OS. Currently this family has three members: the Nano 33 BLE, the Nano 33 BLE Sense and the Nano RP2040 Connect (the Nano 33 IoT is not Mbed OS compatible).

Note that the u-blox NINA W102 module is in reality an ESP32 module that can be freely programmed by the user. This means that the Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect board unites four important maker platforms: Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ESP32 and Mbed OS.
