Wiring Button LEDs and Switches to Pico

Get ready to solder all of the wires to the bottom of the Raspberry Pi Pico PCB.

Solder Button Switches 1-4

Use a PCB vise or third helping hands to keep the Raspberry Pi Pico PCB secured while soldering.

Solder the switch wires from Button 1-4 to GP7-10.

  • Button 1 – GP7
  • Button 2 – GP8
  • Button 3 – GP9
  • Button 4 – GP10

 

Solder Button Switches 5-8

Proceed to wire up the second row of button switches to the Raspberry Pi Pico.

  • Button 5 – GP11
  • Button 6 – GP12
  • Button 7 – GP13
  • Button 8 – GP14
Do not use GP15 – It's used as the boot select button and should be avoided.

Solder Button Switches to 9-12

Proceed to wire up the third row of button switches to the Raspberry Pi Pico.

  • Button 9 – GP16
  • Button 10 – GP17
  • Button 11 – GP18
  • Button 12 – GP19

Solder Button Switches 13-16

Proceed to wire up the last row of button switches to the Raspberry Pi Pico.

  • Button 13 – GP20
  • Button 14 – GP21
  • Button 15 – GP22
  • Button 16 – GP26
