Meet the only connected RP2040 board. It fits the Arduino Nano form factor, making it a small board with BIG features. The brain of the board is the Raspberry Pi RP2040 silicon; a dual-core Arm Cortex M0+ running at 133MHz. It has 264KB of SRAM, and the 16MB of flash memory is off-chip to give you extra storage.
But what’s really exciting is the on-board connectivity options. The hugely popular and highly adaptable u-blox NINA-W102 radio module is on there to make this a true IoT champion. This also means you can harness the power of the cloud, with fully Arduino Cloud compatibility. It’s got on-board, built-in sensors to turn your builds into powerhouse projects, too. Microphone and motion sensing add a depth of possibilities that’s almost impossible to find in a board of this size.

The device is solid and looks great. It does most of the things advertised, except:
I have been fighting with the library to get the Tap interface to actually trigger an interrupt -- absolutely no joy. All of the manuals swear up and down that the interrupt is connected, but there is certainly some confusion about how to get it to actualloy work or what to connect to.
The device gets a little... persnickety... about begin programmed on occasion. I have a feeling that there's some disgreements between the RP core and the ST core that are on the bus as to who is seeing what at what points.
Having said that, it is still quite the cute little device. I think the Arduino IDE is actually the underpowered problem here.
