Advantages over Pro Micro/Elite-C:
In comparison to the Pro Micro or Elite-C, the Elite-Pi provides a few advantages over them:
- Flash memory: Lots of space to compile in various QMK features without worry, as the Elite-Pi has much more flash memory
- Price: Since the RP2040 microcontroller costs less than the ATmega32u4, we can provide it at a lower price than the Elite-C
- Flashing: Instead of using QMK Toolbox, you can just copy a complied .uf2 file to the Elite-Pi to update the firmware

Question: Can I use this on just one half of a split keyboard and use a Pro Micro on the other half?
Answer: No, you can not mix the Elite-Pi with a Pro Micro or Elite-C. However, another RP2040 controller can be used with it.
