Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi (/paɪ/) is a series of small single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world.[13] If at the beginning the aims of the Raspberry Pi project were leaned towards the promotion of teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries,[14][15][16] it rapidly expanded into a wider range of uses, as the original model became far more popular than anticipated,[17] selling outside its target market for uses such as robotics. It is now widely used even in research projects, such as for weather monitoring[18] because of its low cost and portability. It does not include peripherals (such as keyboards and mice) or cases. However, some accessories have been included in several official and unofficial bundles.[17]

The different Raspberry Pi models

Raspberry Pi ZERO

Specifications

Technical specifications

The Raspberry Pi Zero is half the size of a Model A+, with twice the utility. A tiny Raspberry Pi that’s affordable enough for any project!

  • 1GHz single-core CPU
  • 512MB RAM
  • Mini HDMI port
  • Micro USB OTG port
  • Micro USB power
  • HAT-compatible 40-pin header
  • Composite video and reset headers
  • CSI camera connector (v1.3 only)

Advantages of model ZERO

It is a lightweight and inexpensive computer. Although the RAM and CPU performances are limited it is one of the most resistant micro-computers available. The small size and the extreme shock resistance are it’s advantages.


Raspberry Pi Zero W

W for wireless or Wifi!

The Raspberry Pi Zero W extends the Pi Zero family. Launched at the end of February 2017, the Pi Zero W has all the functionality of the original Pi Zero but with added connectivity, consisting of:

  • 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN
  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)

Like the Pi Zero, it also has:

  • 1GHz, single-core CPU
  • 512MB RAM
  • Mini HDMI and USB On-The-Go ports
  • Micro USB power
  • HAT-compatible 40-pin header
  • Composite video and reset headers
  • CSI camera connector

Raspberry Pi 4

Your tiny, dual-display, desktop computer

…and robot brains, smart home hub, media centre, networked AI core, factory controller, and much more. The best choice for great work!

Raspberry Pi 4 (retrieved from raspberry.org)

The speed and performance of the new Raspberry Pi 4 is a step up from earlier models. For the first time, we’ve built a complete desktop experience. Whether you’re editing documents, browsing the web with a bunch of tabs open, juggling spreadsheets or drafting a presentation, you’ll find the experience smooth and very recognisable — but on a smaller, more energy-efficient and much more cost-effective machine.

Silent, energy-efficient

The fanless, energy-efficient Raspberry Pi runs silently and uses far less power than other computers.

Fast networking

Raspberry Pi 4 comes with Gigabit Ethernet, along with onboard wireless networking and Bluetooth.

USB 3

Your new Raspberry Pi 4 has upgraded USB capacity: along with two USB 2 ports you’ll find two USB 3 ports, which can transfer data up to ten times faster.

Your choice of RAM

We’re making different variants of the Raspberry Pi 4 available, depending on how much RAM you need — 2GB, 4GB, or 8GB.
