Raspberry Pi Pico W Led Blink Using MicroPython

In this reader, we will show you Raspberry Pi Pico W Led Blink Using MicroPython Script. We will go over the required hardware, the MicroPython code, and how to upload it to your Pico.

MicroPython is a lean and efficient implementation of the Python 3 programming language that has a small subset of the Python standard library and is optimised to run on microcontrollers. Raspberry Pi Pico W is a new microcontroller board from Raspberry Pi. It’s small, inexpensive, and gives you the ability to control Sensors with code.

What is Raspberry Pi Pico W

Raspberry-Pi-Pico-W LEd Blinking

Raspberry Pi Pico W is a microcontroller board based on the RP2040 chip designed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Raspberry Pi Pico W adds on-board single-band 2.4GHz wireless interfaces (802.11n) using the Infineon CYW43439.  Pico W comes with a fully certified module on board featuring 2.4GHz 802.11n wireless LAN

The board is provided with two 20-pin dual in-line headers ( GPIO ) which support a total of 40 GPIO pins, as well as four mounting holes. The board has a USB Type-C port for power and programming, a reset button, and a boot mode chooser button. The Raspberry Pi Pico W also has an onboard LED which can be controlled using GPIO pin 25.

How to Program Raspberry pi pico w

First, we need to connect the Raspberry Pi Pico to our PC using a C-type USB cable. Then we need to open the Thonny IDE and create a new file. We will name our file “ ”. if you use the first time your Raspberry pi pico then see this guide – How To Program Raspberry Pi Pico With Thonny IDE Step by Step

Blink LED

According to Raspberry Pi official documentation, The onboard LED on Raspberry Pi Pico W is connected to GPIO pin 25.

Raspberry Pi Pico W onboard LED not working

I tried uploading the above code many times but pico W did not Blink the light. The most possible cause of the onboard LED not working is a hardware issue.

Unlike the earliest Raspberry Pi Pico, the onboard LED on Raspberry Pi Pico W is not connected to a pin on RP2040, a GPIO pin on the wireless chip. MicroPython has been modified accordingly. This means that you can now do:
