Raspberry pi why and what to buy

  1. 1.  Raspberry Pi, (aka Raspi or RPI) is a single board computer developed in the UK.  It’s around the size of a credit card, is very low cost and requires little power.  The compute power is relative to a Pentium II pc and the graphics are similar to a 2002 era game console.
  2. 2.  Beagle Bone  Banana Pi  Orange Pi  PCDruino4  NanoPC, ($65)  CubieBoards, ($144!)  MinnowBoard, ($145)  Odroid, (varying models)
  3. 3.  Ardruino › Ardruino “boards” are micro-controllers. › Excellent for open source projects and at collecting data. › They shouldn’t be confused with a single board computer. › You can purchase a card, (i.e. hat) that attaches to the RPI to simulate an ardruino.
  4. 4.  Leader of the single board computer industry.  Tons of online and printed resources.  Parts are easily attainable, both name brand and off market.  Products are available online and in many stores.  Open architecture leads to myriad of creative and functional projects.
  5. 5. Model Version Displayed above chip!
  6. 6.  Version 2, B+ or Pi Zero are the current models out.
  7. 7.  900Mhz Arm11 Broadcom BCM2835 Processor  Dualcore VideoCore GPU  1Gb of Ram  4 USB Ports  Full Size HDMI Display Port  Micro USB Power 5V  40 Pin GPIO  Micros SD Slot for Storage
