Raspberry Pi Pico W rp2040 how to use SD card 2

Raspberry Pi Pico and rp2040 boards: how to use SD card – 5

We have already talked about the internal flash memories for rp2040 boards and other microcontrollers, which are very useful for storing pages or static files. However, they are not suitable for logging or similar applications, so we will learn how to connect and use an SD card which can have a lot of space, a very small form factor, and low power consumption.

Raspberry Pi Pico, and other rp2040 boards: WiFiNINA with ESP32 WiFi Co-Processor

Even though Raspberry Pi Foundation has released the Pico W version, I still find this tutorial useful for adding WiFi to rp2040 boards using an ESP32.
We will use an esp32-wroom-32 (or esp32-s) as WiFi coprocessor and the full potential WiFiNINA library to handle it.

We continue to explore the rp2040 devices, very interesting microcontrollers. All prototype boards come with integrated SPI Flash. Raspberry Pi selected the LittleFS filesystem to manage this storage, a good compromise between functionality and performance.
