I designed two custom PCBs based on the unique features of the PICO DEV M3 development board.

The Pico dev m3is a development board based on the RP2040 chip, the board has the same functions and capabilities as the raspberry pi pico board, only with a different shape and some useful improvements, the most significant being the fact that the board is also designed to be a super high resolution magnetic rotary encoder.

It’s not difficult to imagine the potential of a board that can become a rotary encoder at will, but I figured I’d get the ball rolling with two example projects to demonstrate how the pico dev m3 can be integrated into PCB projects.

The sample projects shown here are open source and you can download all the KiCad design files from the pico dev m3’s repository, so feel free to modify them as needed.”
