MicroPython is planning a new feature for the Raspberry Pi RP2040 board

MicroPython is a programming language that has revolutionized the world of microcontrollers.

With a new change likely to appear in version 1.23, existing MicroPython will get official support for turning the low-cost, high-performance Raspberry Pi Pico flexible digital interface board or any other RP2040 board into a USB device - thanks to a new feature expected to appear in version 1.23.

The microcontroller underlying the Raspberry Pi Pico development board supports operating as a USB device, but this functionality has never been readily available to MicroPython users. The new USB driver functionality changes this by turning the Raspberry Pi Pico into a custom USB device that is detected at runtime.
