PicoBricks and Its Modules

by Robotistan Shopify 14 Aug 2023

We discussed Raspberry Pi, its models, and the complexities involved in creating projects in previous blogs. Currently, the main focus of this series is the PicoBricks board. This board is a Raspberry Pi Pico-based electronic development board and software based on the Raspberry Pi Pico. It is designed to expedite the process of learning robotic programming and simplify Maker projects. There are 12 detachable modules on PicoBricks. This provides extensive project development opportunities. Don’t worry, there will be many projects created using PicoBricks with detailed explanations in this blog series.  We said that it’s a Pico-based board but is that all? Of course, it’s not. There is more!


Modules on PicoBricks

We have already mentioned that it has a Raspberry Pi Pico on it. However, it's important to note that this is not a standard Pico; it's the Pico W variant. In our second article, we had discussed Pico W's characteristics, but I believe it's worth mentioning again. Pico W is a wireless upgrade version of the Raspberry Pi Pico, with no significant differences except for some minor quirks in the internal GPIO configuration. As we highlighted at the beginning of this writing, PicoBricks comprises 12 detachable modules. Thanks to this, these modules can be removed and used individually. What are the other modules? Instead of writing all the models, I’d like to share an image of PicoBricks.


As you can see from the top. All modules has been carefully placed on the plate. Let’s examine these modules!


PicoBoardPico Board

Raspberry Pi Pico is a microcontroller that you can use in your embedded system projects, prototyping. Raspberry Pi Pico, powered by the RP2040 microcontroller, has a dual-core ARM Cortex M0+ processor. The low-cost Raspberry Pi Pico stands out with its low power consumption and high performance. The Raspberry Pi Pico, which can be programmed with both C/C++ and MicroPython, appeals to users of all ages.




OLED Screen
Miniature OLED display modules are a great way to add a small screen to your Raspberry Pi projects.







Temperature and Humidity Sensor

It uses a capacitive humidity sensor and a thermistor to measure the surrounding air and spits out a digital signal on the data pin. It's fairly simple to use but requires careful timing to grab data.






LED Button

Light emitting diode (LED) modules are self-contained devices that contain a chain of LED emitters. Owing to their size, small LED modules make perfect light fixtures in narrow profiles and applications where space is limited.








RGB LED modules can emit various colors of light. The three primary colors, red, green, and blue, can be mixed and compose all kinds of colors by brightness, so you can make an RGB LED emit colorful light by controlling the circuit.







It is electrical equipment that adjusts the speed of induction motors by changing the frequency. In addition to speed control, it is equipped with superior protection, control and communication features.








LDR sensor module is used to detect the intensity of light. When there is light, the resistance of LDR will become low according to the intensity of light. The greater the intensity of light, the lower the resistance of LDR. The sensor has a potentiometer knob that can be adjusted to change the sensitivity of LDR towards light.







Relays are switches that open and close circuits electromechanically or electronically. Relays control one electrical circuit by opening and closing contacts in another circuit.








A potentiometer is defined as a 3 terminal variable resistor in which the resistance is manually varied to control the flow of electric current.








Infrared (receiver) and Bluetooth Module


 Infrared and Bluetooth module is used to provide remote control and wireless communication.









A buzzer or beeper is an signaling device, which produces sound.










A protoboard is usually a platform used to connect components for electronics prototyping.
