Raspberry Pi Pico (Non-Wireless)
CAUTION! This Raspberry Pico board is NOT wireless. The new W version is available on this page.
The Raspberry Pi Pico is a low-cost, high-performance microcontroller board with a flexible digital interfaces. It's similar to an Arduino in that it provides only microcontroller functionality, executing programming in MicroPython or C++. It can be programmed by USB using a Raspberry Pi board, PC, Mac, etc. You can read more about its development and custom chip on the Pi Foundation Blog!

The Raspberry Pi Pico is the first product built on silicon designed in-house at Raspberry Pi (“Raspberry Silicon”). At its heart is RP2040, a Raspberry Pi-designed chip, which features two ARM Cortex-M0+cores clocked at 133MHz; 256KB RAM; 30 GPIO pins; and a broad range of interfacing options. This is paired with 2MB of on-board QSPI Flash memory for code and data storage.

Amazing alternative to Teensy unit!
The Raspberry foundation made a good product and I would have given 5 stars if it was 2017 or early.
The problem with it is energy efficiency. 170mA is too much for a battery device. So if I need to make a project that needs to work for a week or more I need to use a power supply.
Otherwise the product is good to study C/C+/mycropython for microcontrollers.
Dual core, faster than arduino by a long way, more memory, C++ tool chain. this device can output VGA video! Great value.
