Raspberry Pi @ RS Components. Everything you require to get started...And more!
The Raspberry Pi was first 'baked' in 2012 as a single board ARM-based computer that developed in response to the growing need for computing and programming skills within children. Fast forward to today and the Raspberry Pi has an expanding community of enthusiasts, designers and engineers - all looking to build their latest projects with Pi at the core. Let's get cooking!
Most importantly, it is a great way for beginners, young, and old, to get into computing!
It's REALLY easy to use.
It's Linux-based open source - with access to free software and downloads to help you with your project.
It has great connectivity.
It is flexible to the user. Want to play games? Stream music and/or video? Do your homework? Create a weather station? Create a home security camera? No limits!
Let's take a look at the Pi models;
Pi B+ BCM2835 SoC/ARM11/700 MHz/512 MB RAM/4 USB PORTS/ 85 x 56 x 17 mm
Pi A+ BCM2835 SoC/ARM11/700 MHz/256 MB RAM/1 USB PORT/ 66 x 56 x 14 mm
Pi 2 B BCM2836 SoC/ARMv7/900 MHz/1GB RAM/4 USB PORTS/ 85 x 56 x 17 mm
What do I need to get started?
You will need a keyboard, a mouse, an SD card with or without NOOBS, a power supply, HDMI or RCA jack (to connect to a screen) and either an ethernet cable or a dongle for internet connection - all available at RS. We also have a constantly expanding range of accessories to give your Pi that extra flavour! These include cases, USB hubs, ethernet cables, dongles, 'how to' books, camera boards and expansion boards.
Note - Pi A+ does not connect to the Internet.
How do I set up my Pi?
Once you are all connected, you will need to install NOOBS which helps set up your Pi. SD cards are available with NOOBS pre-installed or you can download NOOBS from the Raspberry Pi Foundation website onto your SD card. Once you have NOOBS, you can easily install an operating system (no Internet needed!), with the popular choices being;
