Cost of Adafruit ItsyBitsy RP2040

by seawarrior181 on Thu Apr 15, 2021 10:55 am

Hi,

I waited patiently for the new Adafruit ItsyBitsy RP2040 to arrive. As someone who has a reason to order many of these devices I was disappointed in the price point; $9.95 for the Adafruit ItsyBitsy RP2040 when a Raspberry Pi Pico can be had for $4.00, making the Adafruit ItsyBitsy RP2040 more than twice the cost of the Raspberry Pi Pico. Why would I order a Adafruit ItsyBitsy RP2040 over a Raspberry Pi Pico? Are there significant differences in functionality?

Thanks,
Dan

The ItsyBitsy has:
- 8M of flash, compared to the Pico's 2M
- a reset button in addition to a boot-mode button
- a controllable D13 LED
- a NeoPixel
- ItsyBitsy pinout/footprint i.e. a lot smaller.
