Description

A demo board for exploring the digital video and audio capabilities of Raspberry Pi Pico, with HDMI connector, SD card slot, line level I2S audio and buttons.

Intrigued by the possibilities of VGA Demo Base but no longer own a D-sub cable? No problem! This board is an all-digital conversion of Raspberry Pi's VGA reference design, great for if you want to start hacking on video and/or audio output from a Raspberry Pi Pico and piping it straight into a modern monitor.
We've been using this board with Wren6991's nifty PicoDVI library, which you can use to output a bitbanged digital video signal from an overclocked RP2040. To demonstrate the additional functions of this board, we've put together an AV player example that lets you read video files from the SD card and output video and audio simultaneously.
Please note that the video functionality of DV Demo Base only currently works with experimental examples, like the ones in PicoDVI.
Raspberry Pi Pico is not included. Your Pico will need to have pin headers soldered to it (with the pins pointing downwards) to attach to our add-on boards.

About Raspberry Pi Pico

Raspberry Pi Pico is a flexible, low cost microcontroller development board from the folks at Raspberry Pi, based on their very own chip - the RP2040. It's easily programmable over USB with C/C++ or MicroPython, and ideal for using in all sorts of physical computing projects, devices and inventions - we're so excited to see what you make with it!
We've called our Pico-sized add-ons packs, as they're designed to attach to the back of your Pico as if it were wearing a very stylish backpack (or a miniature jet pack, if you prefer). We've also got Pico bases (larger add-on boards with a space to mount your Pico on top) and some other boards that let you do interesting hackerly things like using multiple packs at once - click here to view them all!
