It's a custom chip, you'll probably need to buy it from the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

For now, they say: Volume customers will be able to buy pre-reeled Pico units.


Are you planning to make RP2040 available to customers?

We hope to make RP2040 broadly available in the second quarter of 2021.


Reeled Pico units wouldn't do me any good; a Pico occupies several times my space budget for an MCU.

But, if the chips are going to be generally available later this year, I guess all's well; it'll be at least a couple of months before I can get much evaluation done, and the Pico is an acceptable platform for doing the evaluation.
