Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi is a series of credit card-sized single-board computers developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools.[3][4][5] The original Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi 2 are manufactured in several board configurations through licensed manufacturing agreements with Newark element14 (Premier Farnell), RS Components and Egoman. These companies sell the Raspberry Pi online.[6] Egoman produces a version for distribution solely in China and Taiwan, which can be distinguished from other Pis by their red colouring and lack of FCC/CE marks. The hardware is the same across all manufacturers. In 2014, the Raspberry Pi Foundation launched the Compute Module, which packages a BCM2835 with 512 MB RAM and an eMMC flash chip into a module for use as a part of embedded systems.[10] Hardware[edit] Processor[edit] Performance of first generation models[edit] Overclocking[edit] RAM[edit] Networking[edit] Peripherals[edit] Related:  Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Jam at Milton Keynes – National Museum of Computing – Gertboard Demo Rig Yesterday I went to my first Raspberry Jam – a get-together of Raspberry Pi enthusiasts. This one was in Milton Keynes at the National Museum of Computing. It happened to be run by Peter Onion, who I already knew from the world of aeromodelling. So it was a no-brainer for me to go to… meet an old friend (he’s not that old)visit a museum of computersget to talk to people about the Raspberry Pi and Gertboard and demonstrate themsee what other people are doing with the Pi (nobody else had a Gertboard – ner ner nee ner ner :p ) It was great. It wasn’t all plain-sailing though. Toasted servo for lunch. Fortunately – well, there’s no fortune about it really, since I always carry spares – I had a spare servo. I did manage to tear myself away from my stand (thanks to my security arrangements :rotfl: ) Rev 1 Pi has no screw mount holes, so I made my own arrangements. A closer look, you can see the hot glue. On the rev 1 Pi board there are no screw-holes, so I had to make my own arrangements ;).

Raspberry Pi The Raspberry Pi is a series of credit card-sized single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intent to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and developing countries.[8][9][10] The original Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi 2 are manufactured in several board configurations through licensed manufacturing agreements with Newark element14 (Premier Farnell), RS Components and Egoman.[11] The hardware is the same across all manufacturers. The firmware is closed-source.[12] Several generations of Raspberry Pi's have been released. The first generation (Pi 1) was released in February 2012 in basic model A and a higher specification model B. All models feature a Broadcom system on a chip (SOC), which includes an ARM compatible CPU and an on chip graphics processing unit GPU (a VideoCore IV).

Gav's World : Raspberry Pi : Car Media Server Raspberry Pi Car Media Server [gav-pi2] It was extremely simple to set up... eventually... once I'd battled with RaspBMC for a couple of nights (it's too constrained to do a particular job - although it does it very well) and switched to Raspbian... The thick yellow (orange externally), red and black wires carry +12V, +12V (accessory) and GND from the car. The thin white and blue wires are handshaking signals between the Pi and the power supply for controlled shutdown. What did it used to only do? It is a Wi-Fi hotspot to allow our phones and tablets to connect to. What does it also do now? With the addition of a small USB hub and a USB 3G modem, the car server now provides Internet access for any devices connected to it in the car. Initial setup Plug an SDHC card into desktop PC (or laptop). Configuring the Wi-Fi Hotspot Configuring DHCP / DNS Configuring a 3G / 4G USB Modem This turns out to be far simpler that first thought. Configuring IP Forwarding & Network Address Translation (NAT)

Raspberry Pi FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions Table of Contents: The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a charity, so you can’t buy shares in the company. You can buy a Raspberry Pi from our main distributors, Premier Farnell/Element14 and RS Components/Allied Electronics. The Model A+ costs $20, the Model B+ costs $25, the Pi 2 costs $35, the Pi 3 costs $35, and the Pi Zero costs $5, plus local taxes and shipping/handling fees. You get the Raspberry Pi board itself. The components we buy are priced in dollars, and we negotiate manufacturing in dollars. Raspberry Pi resellers produce some fantastic bundles for people who would rather get everything they need from a single source. Not at the current time. Yes. There is no on/off switch! 10. 11. 12.

Raspberry Pi • View topic - [Tutorial] In-Car Raspberry with Wifi Access point - DWA-121 My car is a Renault Espace with integrated screens at the back of the headrests (infrared transmitter for the sound to headsets) with a DVD Player and an extra RCA audio/video input. Since I was bored with kids battles choosing cartoons from old DVDs I decided to use a Raspberry Pi together with Raspbmc as a media center. Everything had to be powered from the cigar lighter receptacle... I took an old 2.5" hard-drive as the repository for cartoons. I wanted to use my iPad as a remote control for XBMC so the idea was to have a wifi emitter in the Raspberry Pi, to connect the iPad to this Wifi network and to use the official remote control app. So I bought a cheap USB Wifi dongle: D-Link DWA-121 (less than 13€ on Here is how to proceed, using your home network first before going into the car. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Code: Select all ssh -l pi IP_ADDRESS where IP_ADDRESS is the one you just checked (for example sudo -s to make sure you have sufficient rights on the device. 6. 7.

RPi Resize Flash Partitions This page describes activities relating to partitions on the Raspberry Pi for Linux based operating systems, such as Raspian Linux. It may also apply to other operating systems too, but you should check. Incorrectly using the following instructions is likely to corrupt your system. The prepared images for the Raspberry Pi are created for SD cards of the size of 2GB. The SD card can be resized or restructured to use the full size of a SD card that is greater than 2GB. Raspi-config If using the Raspian or Debian images the raspi-config utility can be used to resize the main partition to fill the SD card. This will happen automatically. Explanation Backup You might want to backup your SD before resizing partitions. Manually resizing the SD card on Linux Tutorial video here: Following on from the instructions above, keep the newly-written SD card in the card reader, but unmounted.

amazon GreenPiThumb: A Raspberry Pi Gardening Bot - Introduction This is the story of GreenPiThumb: a gardening bot that automatically waters houseplants, but also sometimes kills them. The story begins about a year ago, when I was struck by a sudden desire to own a houseplant. A plant would look nice, supply me with much needed oxygen, and imply to guests that I’m a responsible grown-up, capable of caring for a living thing. But I’m a programmer, not a gardener. If I had a plant, I’d have to water it and check the plant’s health a few times per week. Why GreenPiThumb? Like most software projects I take on, my main motivation with GreenPiThumb was to learn new technologies. My friend Jeet had just started learning to program, so I asked if he’d be interested in collaborating with me on GreenPiThumb. Powered by Raspberry Pi The Raspberry Pi is a small, inexpensive computer built for hobbyists. With the number of sensors and integration guides available for it, the Raspberry Pi was a natural fit for GreenPiThumb. Hardware architecture Giving up
