1 Raspberry Pi Surrey Amateur Radio Club November 12, 2014 AN INTRODUCTION TO THIS NON-EDIBLE DELIGHT

2 What is Raspberry Pi?  A single-board microcomputer developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in the UK to promote the teaching of basic computer science to students.  About the size of a credit card  Three manufacturers are licensed to produce 3 configurations (Newark element14/Premier Farnell, RS Components & Egoman  Broadcom BCM2835 system on a chip (SoC) that includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor & a VideoCore IV GPU  Originally a Model A with 256MB of RAM now called Model B  B+ Has 512MB of RAM  Price difference was about $10-$15 only (B+ = $45-55)

3 Picture It…

4 RPi Connections

5 GPIO Interface Example (LED Project)

6 Radio Interface SSTV Beacon Project

7 Operating System – LINUX The Foundation Provides…  Operating Systems: Debian and Arch Linux ARM distributions for free download   Other OS’s include: Raspbian, GNU/Linux, Fedora, FreeBSD & more  Programming languages include:  Python (main programming language)  Scratch, Mathematica, Sonic (music), Minecraft, C, Java, Perl & Ruby

8 Where To Buy Your Pi  Best Deal: CANAKIT – (North Vancouver)  For other ideas see  Google search will reveal many more options

9 What You Need – The Basics  A Raspberry Pi (B+)  5V Micro USB 1.2A (2.5A better to power USB ports)  Minimum 8 GB SD Card (best with NOOBS – New Out Of Box Software)  Raspberry Pi Case to protect unit – Many Types –See Amazon, Ebay, etc.  Case with GPIO access is great for Ham Radio projects  WiFi Dongle or use Ethernet Port (Model B and B+)  Keyboard – Small wireless w/dongle is best
