Back to RPi Guides. Raspberry Pi Network Attached Storage This project configures your Raspberry Pi to share files with any other computer on your local network. You can add a large hard disk to the RPi and use this to store your important files/photos/videos in a central location. The files on your RPi can be easily accessed from any type of computer which is connected to your network, for example a Windows PC, a Linux PC, A Mac, a smartphone, etc. In a classroom, each student can have access to a private area, and also a public area for sharing files. Warning: Make sure that you store your important files in more than one location. Note: There are two major classes of Network Attached Storage Low-power NAS. This project does not require any coding or compilation. You need to...

ArchLinux Install Guide Preface Introduction This guide is intended to help someone install the Arch Linux ARM distribution on their Raspberry Pi. The guide presupposes you have some familiarity with the linux system and are comfortable working from the command line, but it does not require you to be an expert. We learn a great deal by doing, and if you'd like to learn more about how linux operates, Arch Linux is an excellent choice for many reasons.

SmartSim, a digital circuit designer and simulator Ashley Newson is a sixth-form student from Oxford. Alex Bradbury and Rob Mullins from the Raspberry Pi Foundation met him at the University of Cambridge Computer Lab open day, where he came over with an SD card ready to show off a demo of SmartSim, his home-grown circuit design and simulation package. It was, said Alex, hugely impressive – I’ve had a play too now, and couldn’t agree with him more. Sneak Peek: Adafruit Raspberry Pi WebIDE September 19, 2012 AT 2:14 pm We love the Raspberry Pi. This tiny computer has so much potential for makers, and it is offered at an extremely reasonable price. The one thing we didn’t like about the Pi is how inaccesible it is to those who are new to Linux.

Buy A Pi So you want to buy a Raspberry Pi? There a number of official distributors, two of which are RS and Farnell. They sell Raspberry Pis as well as a range of accessories such as power supplies, SD cards, USB hubs, keyboards and mice. Premier Farnell/Element 14 (Worldwide) Free online course on building a simple Raspberry Pi OS from the University of Cambridge This summer, the University of Cambridge Computer Lab has been home to a small group working on projects with the Raspberry Pi. Alex Chadwick is one of those people, and he’s produced this: a free course on building a very simple operating system for the Raspberry Pi in assembly language. The course opens with some explanations about what assembly language is – and, importantly, what an operating system really is; you’ll learn some new concepts and possibly some new terms, and then you’ll dive headlong into practical work.

Pi Crust breakout board makes it easy to get peripherals on Raspberry Pi Joe Walnes, a Chicago-based hacker and maker, has just released a design for what he has dubbed the Pi Crust: a very cheap new hardware add-on for the Raspberry Pi. The breakout board, which debuted on Wednesday, is meant to make it easier to tack various hardware peripherals onto the cheap computer, and it does so in an compact design. The new board only adds 2mm of height to the existing Raspberry Pi.

Pi-Face Interface for Raspberry Pi Allows you to control lights, motors etc. Sense inputs Creditcard size, stacks on top of Raspberry Pi Buffered to protect the Raspberry Pi Easy to connect with screw terminals Program in Scratch or Python Test with onscreen simulator Pi-Face Digital is the first of a range of interfaces to allow the Raspberry Pi to control and manipulate the real world. It allows the Raspberry Pi to read switches connected to it – a door sensor or pressure pad perhaps, a microswitch or reed switch, or a hand held button. With appropriate easy to write code, the Raspberry Pi then drives outputs, powering motors, actuator, LEDs, light bulbs or anything you can imagine to respond to the inputs. We are in the process of ordering the first batch of assembled boards and bare PCBs if you're keen to solder something up yourself.

Raspberry Pi Peripherals Adjustable Enclosure System The adjustable enclosure system is designed as a sandwich. The Raspberry Pi (Rev B boards with mounting holes) is held by the top cover. The RAS-DAS-1 and any other boards are held in place from the bottom cover. There are no mounting connections between the Raspberry Pi and the additional board.
