pimoroni-pico-lipo-16mb - Board Support for the Pimoroni Pico Lipo 16MB

You should include this crate if you are writing code that you want to run on a Pimoroni Pico Lipo 16MB - a board with USB-C, STEMMA QT/Qwiic connectors, plus a Li-Po battery charging circuit.

This crate includes the [rp2040-hal], but also configures each pin of the RP2040 chip according to how it is connected up on the Pico Lipo.

Note that if you use this crate the compiler will expect the full 16MB flash space, and so it may not work if you only have the 4MB variant.


To use this crate, your Cargo.toml file should contain:

pimoroni-pico-lipo-16mb = "0.6.0"

In your program, you will need to call pimoroni_pico_lipo_16mb::Pins::new to create a new Pins structure. This will set up all the GPIOs for any on-board devices. See the examples folder for more details.


General Instructions

To compile an example, clone the rp-hal-boards repository and run:

rp-hal-boards/boards/pimoroni-pico-lipo-16mb $ cargo build --release --example <name>

You will get an ELF file called ./target/thumbv6m-none-eabi/release/examples/<name>, where the target folder is located at the top of the rp-hal-boards repository checkout. Normally you would also need to specify --target=thumbv6m-none-eabi but when building examples from this git repository, that is set as the default.

If you want to convert the ELF file to a UF2 and automatically copy it to the USB drive exported by the RP2040 bootloader, simply boot your board into bootloader mode and run:

rp-hal-boards/boards/pimoroni-pico-lipo-16mb $ cargo run --release --example <name>

If you get an error about not being able to find elf2uf2-rs, try:

$ cargo install elf2uf2-rs, then repeating the `cargo run` command above.


Flashes the Pico Lipo's on-board LED on and off.
