Community Article Raspberry Pi Pico Launch - What You Need to Know — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Consumer Tech › Hobby Boards & Projects Raspberry Pi Pico Launch - What You Need to Know SeanM admin January 19 edited June 18 in Hobby Boards & Projects The Raspberry Pi Pico is Raspberry Pi's first foray into the world of microcontrollers. This new product is a departure from Raspberry Pi's previous line of single-board computers and is very similar to other companies' microcontrollers. Unlike a single board computer (which is a full computer with an operating system, video capability, and often interfaces like USB), a microcontroller executes a single piece of code and most often interfaces with other hardware via General Purpose Input/Output pins (or GPIOs), serial, and analog to digital converters (or ADCs). Some microcontrollers feature USB connectivity, but some do not. Microcontrollers don't have an operating system. This board features 26 GPIO pins (of which three may be used as analog inputs), 2xSPI, 2xI3C, 2xUART, a serial debug port, and 16 PWM channels. The board is designed to use 20 header pins on each side of the board. The holes are castellated, allowing the module to be soldered directly to a PCB. The pins are laid out in a DIP format, making it easy to connect to a breadboard. Headers are not included with the module.  It uses 3.3v logic and can be powered via USB or a 1.8 to 5.5v power supply connected to VSYS.   A unique feature of this microcontroller is the chip itself, which has been designed by Raspberry Pi. Dubbed the RP2040, this chip features two ARM Cortex M0+ cores running at up to 133 MHz, 264kB of SRAM and 2MB onboard flash, support for up to 30 GPIO pins (though only 26 are used on the Pico), a four-channel 12 bit ADC, SPI, I2C, and UART, and USB 1.1 host and device support. The Pico is currently the only board using Raspberry Pi's silicon, but we will likely see more in the future. The Raspberry Pi Pico is compatible with MicroPython and C/C++ with Raspberry Pi's C SDK or VSCode. It is not compatible with Adafruit's CircuitPython or the Arduino IDE. The Raspberry Pi Pico is excellent for a wide range of microcontroller projects. Beyond leveraging the GPIOs and ADCs in projects like light controllers and automated plant watering systems, the wide range of serial connectivity opens up the possibility of connecting a vast range of sensors, displays, and other I/O devices. UART can be used for MIDI, allowing the Pico to be used in MIDI controllers and sequencers. Since the Pico has USB 1.1 capability, it can send keystrokes from a mechanical keyboard or macro keypad. The Raspberry Pi Pico's MSRP is $4.00, just below the $5.00 MSRP of the Raspberry Pi Zero. It's available in store now.  We can't wait to see what you make with yours- be sure to post your projects to our community!

Something like this: https://www.microcenter.com/product/607976/tp-link-deco-m4-ac1200-whole-home-mesh-wi-fi-system-(3-pack) With this, you'll only need one Modem from your ISP and then these repeaters/access points will pass along the signal. The system you get should depend on your internet speed as well. For example, the system linked above is AC1200, which is 300 Mbps on 2.4 GHz and 867 Mbps on 5 GHz. Hope this helps! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Phat_Nguyen ✭ November 2020 So you think mesh system is better than separate router for each floor ?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 Yes, if you have 3 different routers, that would mean 3 different networks that would potentially fighting each other. If you set up a mesh system, the connected device will switch between access points to connect to the strongest or best signal. Typically, recent access points have a signal that passes a single floor. For example, if you have one access point on the first floor, and one on the second floor, you may not need one on the third because the signal strength is strong enough to cover the area. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Phat_Nguyen ✭ November 2020 I got it, so i will have 1 gigs plan speed which brand should you recommended.

Thank you, G 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer TS_JosephF admin October 2020 Accepted Answer Hello @G_money1 Welcome to the community!  For your home network, all you will need is a DOCSIS Modem (3.0 or 3.1) and any standard Wireless router. Any modern router will be compatible with all Apple devices and your Xbox one as well. You will have some options though. I would recommend at least a Dual-Band Wireless AC or Wi-Fi 5 router. You could get a Tri-Band wireless router or even a Wireless AX router depending on your budget. Also, I do agree with getting a modem and router separately rather than a 2in1 Modem/Router. It can certainly be more secure and will provide you with a lot more options on what you can purchase. Here are a few modems that I recommend (they are all compatible with Comcast/Xfinity) : This one is capable of download speeds up to 686Mbps and upload speeds up to 131Mbps: https://www.microcenter.com/product/447161/arris-enterprises-surfboard-sb6183-cable-modem This one is capable of Gigabit download speeds: https://www.microcenter.com/product/481225/netgear-cm1000-docsis-31-high-speed-cable-modem This one has a max throughput of 3.8 GB/s: https://www.microcenter.com/product/481351/motorola-docsis-31-cable-modem As for your router, normally I suggest getting a Mesh Router. It is not required but if you have a large home then I strongly recommend it as it will eliminate any Wi-Fi dead zones around your house. Here is a Mesh Router that includes a main router plus two nodes. They each have 2 Ethernet ports. It is capable of 300Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band and 867Mbps on the 5 GHz band. https://www.microcenter.com/product/607976/tp-link-deco-m4-ac1200-whole-home-mesh-wi-fi-system-(3-pack) This is a Tri-Band Wireless AC router. It is capable of 400Mbps over the 2.4GHz band and 867Mbps over each of the 5 GHz bands : https://www.microcenter.com/product/602874/linksys-mesh-wifi-router-(tri-band-router,-wireless-mesh-router-for-home-ac2200),-future-proof-mu-mimo-fast-wireless-router  This is a Wireless AX router. It is capable of 574Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 2402Mbps on the 5GHz band: https://www.microcenter.com/product/603735/netgear-nighthawk-ax4-ax3000-wifi-6-router Although there is newer Wi-Fi technology out there, Wireless AX or Wi-Fi 6 is the newest we carry at Micro Center.  Let us know if you have any other questions! 5 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 106 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I don't play a lot of newly released games, but the ones that I do (namely Star Citizen) are simply demanding an upgrade at this point - if not from my CPU, then from my RAM, which on my P8Z77-Pro is currently running at a blazing 1333mhz. Either way, it's finally time to bring this box of mine into this decade - mostly. I'll be keeping my 1060 6GB for obvious reasons, although I wouldn't be opposed to picking up something like a 1660 or even a 2060 on the cheap in the next year or so. I'm also keeping my current storage devices, and adding on an NVMe drive for games. Here are the parts I had picked out, having no real knowledge of the practicality of it, just based off of whether or not they were compatible: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=3e505b99-4c36-45e5-bfaf-517e9179068f So to be clear, my new planned system will be this list plus a 1060 6gb and my Silencer MkIII 600w power supply. So here are my questions - Do I need to upgrade my power supply? After this upgrade, will I instead be crying about my GPU instead of my CPU? I'm not looking for a PC that can sprint, I'm looking for a marathon runner. Does this motherboard/CPU combo have the best chance of going the distance and taking me straight into 2030 without looking back? I understand this might be a strange or impossible question to answer confidently, but an informed opinion on my upgrade strategy would still be appreciated. I plan on assembling this all by myself. Now, I've plugged in a few sticks of RAM in my day, and I've upgraded from a 660ti to a 1060 without professional help, but I'm wondering if there is different hardware I should consider that might make assembly easier? Beginner-friendly features or layouts, if those are even a thing? Any build tips specific for me and my setup? Thank you 😀 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments myLord95 ✭ April 27 Also, I should mention that $1.2k is pretty much the ceiling I'm aiming for. I may cut out the NVMe drive to cut cost, I haven't decided on that yet. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 27 edited April 27 Hello @myLord95 and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. First thing we see is you have a AM4 CPU cooler and a Intel CPU. That Noctua won't fit on the I5-11600K processor. Try going with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Universal cooler sku# 864199. We're assuming you are wanting to use your old HDD to boot to windows with the new build pc. You may have some issues with that. There are ways to get your new build pc to boot from the HDD (ex., Legacy/UEFI mode), but those steps do not work all the time and PC builders have to re-install Windows sometimes. We recommend to purchase a copy of Windows, just in-case your new build won't allow windows to boot from the Hard Drive. If it boots, then you can always return Windows 10 if you like. Now lets answer your questions. Question #1: 600w PSU should be enough. Question #2: Looking at the requirements for Star Citizen, the integrated graphic isn't enough for this game. Go with a entry level GPU like the Radeon RX 580 or a GTX 1080 GPU. The  i5-3570k has 4 cores for processing. The I5-11600K has 6 cores, so you're only going up 2 cores. Star Citizen and normal usage of the game doesn't look to require a 6 core processor. But the I5-3570 is out of date. It would be hard to find a new motherboard to go with the old 3570. So if you are wanting to upgrade, you're going to need both the CPU and GPU, especially for Star Citizen. Question #3: As far as the Intel CPU and Gigabyte Z590 motherboard combo, we have no answers on how long your PC components will last. We have no way of determining that. PC parts last as long as how the PC user uses them. So if a PC user is abusing the PC by overclocking, downloading and installing unfamiliar software or doing windows configuration that they may not be fully understanding, things like this over time can deteriorate a pc and its parts. How long did your current pc last? Just curious. Question #4: PC building tips. Hmmm, definitely watch some "How To Build a PC" videos on You tube. Below I've including a link on your wiring. Your motherboard should come with instructions with a layout, but that may be a little confusing if you have never built a pc from scratch. No worries you can always google what certain ports are labeled as, what they are for, and what should go into its port. And of course you can always post a question here, or send us a chat or text on help with your build.

Right now, I've got Windows 10 installed on a Crucial M4 128gb SSD. Do you think that has a better chance of working than a HDD? You suggest a different cooler, roger that. I hated the way the one I picked looked anyway. 😀 I am planning on using my 1060 6GB with this new build. I know it can handle VR and newer titles on at least medium settings, and I'm totally cool with that for now. This box has lasted me since 2012. I upgraded from a 660 ti to a 1060, a 1tb HDD to a 1tb Hybrid Drive (Firecuda), and I threw in two more sticks of 4GB DDR3. I overclocked my CPU from 3.4 to 3.9ghz in 2013 or 2014 and it's been going strong ever since. I also think I've turned my PC off less than 100 times since I've owned it. I know. So from what I've gathered from your post, as long as I get the cooler you're suggesting (Cooler Master Hyper 212), and ensure that I can get an OS on my new machine, I'm off to the races. Anything to say about the specific parts I've picked? Is there something cheaper that could accomplish the same things as these parts? Edit: here's the new link to my parts list https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=6aaf6c79-e940-48a2-be62-81aede601bb6 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 27 @myLord95 Sorry for the confusion. Yes your SSD will work, but you may still have an issue of booting to windows on the new pc with the 128gb SSD. Again steps can be taken to try a different boot modes such as Legacy or UEFI to see if the motherboard will boot the 128 SSD to windows. It may work, it may not. You're good with the GTX 1060 as your GPU. For the PSU extension kit, not sure what is driving for this to be part of your selection. Is your current PSU missing some cables? What PSU do you currently have (manufacturer and model)? I can google it and see if you'll need the extension kit. An area to look at to cut back on costs is your case fans. Looks like the NZXT H510 case should come with 2 case fans (intake & outtake). That should be efficient enough for what you have described as how you'll be using the pc build. Now if you plan to overclock, then I'd say stick with the case fans you've chosen. Everything else you've chosen looks good. Only thing really was the cooler; overall a good selection of parts. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook myLord95 ✭ April 27 Oh, I was really only putting the PSU extension kit there in case I needed extra cables. I really didn't know if I did or not, and I just wanted to be safe. I currently have a Silencer MKIII 600w power supply from PC Power & Cooling. I definitely plan to overclock, so I suppose I will stick with the fan selection. Thank you so much again for your replies. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 28 @myLord95 no problem, glad we could give some insight to you off the Microcenter Forum.

Maybe you just want to extend the WiFi signal to your office at the far end of your home, or you would like to extend the signal all through your backyard. Either way, this guide will explain the different ways you can extend the WiFi signal inside or outside of your home or business. There are many different devices that you can use such as wireless repeaters, signal boosters, and antennas. Each of these devices will offer different features and will be set up a bit differently. Table of Contents What’s a WiFi extender? What’s a Mesh Router? What’s an Access Point? What is best for me? Products WiFi Extenders Mesh Routers High-Speed Mesh Routers Access Points Updated: 7/6/2020 Prices are subject to change 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TS_JosephF admin July 2020 edited July 2020 What’s a WiFi extender? Now, if you are looking to just extend your WiFi signal inside, buying a WiFi extender or WiFi booster can easily solve that problem. Most of them require very little to almost no setup. Basically, this uses some of its antennas to receive the WiFi from your primary router then it uses the other antennas to rebroadcast the signal.  A lot of extenders also have an ethernet port. It can be used to provide internet access to a PC or other device that cannot connect to WiFi. This ethernet port can also be used to provide an internet connection to the extender itself, which would make it an Access Point.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TS_JosephF admin July 2020 What’s a Mesh Router? If it has been a while since you upgraded your wireless router then you may want to consider a Mesh Router system. Mesh Routers are fairly simple to set up and can offer the most reliable speed for all of your devices throughout your home. If you are looking for a full coverage wifi network, then a Mesh Router will be best for you. This would replace your current router and would also provide at least 1 other ‘satellite’ or 'node' that you can position in a different area of your home. These nodes will connect to the primary router using a wireless connection - no ethernet cable required - and can easily increase your WiFi coverage and improve the overall quality of your wireless network. One feature that is very convenient is that it creates a seamless network. This allows you to walk throughout your home without having to manually switch between WiFi networks to maintain your internet connection. Your device will automatically switch to whatever node it is closest to. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TS_JosephF admin July 2020 What's an Access Point? Another way you can extend your WiFi signal is by using an Access Point or AP. Now, these can require a little more time to set up and you likely have to run an ethernet cable to it from your current router, depending on which one you purchase. Some can be set up in ‘Repeater’ mode, which is very similar to a WiFi extender. Others can be set up in ‘Access Point’ mode, which will require you to connect an ethernet cable for an internet connection.  Both will create another Wi-Fi name or SSID (service set identifier) but will still allow devices to communicate with each other as it will still be 1 network. Access Points can offer the most versatility because they are sold with various antenna strengths as well as directions.  Access Points can also be used to set up a wireless bridge. Basically, this can allow you to use two Access Points to extend a WiFi signal several hundred feet or more, depending on the antenna strength and gain. It is more popular to set this up in a corporate environment rather than a residential one. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TS_JosephF admin July 2020 edited July 2020 What is best for me? When you are looking to extend your WiFi signal, there are few things you will need to consider: Are you extending the signal outside or just inside? WiFi Extenders or Boosters typically do not have strong antennas to boost the signal outside. Extenders and Mesh Systems would be best to boost your WiFi signal inside your home rather than outside. An Access Point would likely be the best option when looking to extend your WiFi signal outside. You can choose one that best suits the direction and distance you are extending the signal.  Whether you want the signal to cover a big backyard, or an exterior garage or barn, an Access Point will give you the most reliable connection. These are common in office buildings, warehouses, and large garages. Is your priority the WiFi speed, coverage, or both? For indoor use, Mesh Routers will offer the best overall speed and reliability inside your home. It would be able to provide the most consistent speed while extending your WiFi coverage.  A WiFi extender is a good indoor solution, however, it may not provide the same speed or reliability as a Mesh Router would.  Access Points can offer very reliable speed and coverage but I would recommend these mainly for outdoor use. Although, there are some Access Points that can be set up as a node if you already have a Mesh Router. Are you comfortable with some network setup, or do you want something that is plug n play? The simplest device to set up is going to be a WiFi extender. Most will require you to push a button on your router and the extender. It really is that easy. A Mesh Router and most Access Points will both require some sort of network setup. You would have to access the UI of the router or AP to set up the internet connection. Even though these require you to set up the device, they will also include more features to help with the overall security and bandwidth across your network. Are you looking for a complete wireless solution? Or is running an Ethernet cable an option? If you are looking for a complete wireless solution then I would recommend a WiFi extender. All that is required is a wall outlet. They are very convenient when running an ethernet cable is not an option. A Mesh Router can be considered a complete wireless solution if you are looking to replace your current router. It would require you to connect an ethernet cable from the base router to the modem and to a wall outlet, of course, for power. However, the 2nd and/or 3rd satellite does not require any ethernet cable. An Access Point is not always considered a wireless solution as most require you to run an ethernet cable. You can purchase some Access Points and set them up as a WiFi extender, but it might be easier to just get a WiFi extender.    What is your budget? This can easily be the determining factor for some of us. The most inexpensive solution would be a WiFi extender or booster. With that being said they are some very pricey extenders similar to the cost of a low-end Mesh Router. Based on the products I am recommending, here is a range of the prices: WiFi Extenders = $29.99 - $119.99 Access Points = $69.99 - $99.99 Mesh Routers = $89.99 - $699.99 As you can see by the range in price, when it comes to Mesh Routers, you’ve got plenty of options. Below, you will see the different products I recommend to see what best suits your needs and budget. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TS_JosephF admin July 2020 edited July 2020 Extenders and Repeaters I recommend these extenders if you are looking for something simple.

I'd recommend the ASUS range extender if you already have a powerful router. The speed of this extender will exceed your ISP speed but it may provide the signal strength to reach your outbuilding if it's placed on the inside outermost wall of your home assuming that it is able to connect to your home network there.
