RasPi Magazine [UK], Issue 16 (2015)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
From the team behind Linux User & Developer magazine, RasPi is the essential guide to getting the most out of the Raspberry Pi credit-card sized computer. Packed with expert tutorials on how to design, build and code with the Raspberry Pi, this digital magazine will educate and inspire a new generation of coders and makers.
outputs in HDMI, a lot of modern monitors do have an HDMI input. If you don’t want to get a brand new monitor, though, you can always get a HDMI-to-DVI or HDMI-to-VGA adapter. 12 Case for protection The Pi is pretty sturdy and we’d be lying if we said we didn’t regularly keep ours out of a case. However, it’s not indestructible. While we often do a lot of different projects involving accessing different components, a desktop Pi doesn’t require this level of access. We like the Pimoroni Pibow

Then inside the turret there’s a mounted USB hub, because I designed PiPanther to use the Raspberry Pi Model A+, since it’s smaller and cheaper, but it only has one USB port. So on the turret you have two USB plugins and then the third USB port is for the Wi-Fi. We also have a Li-Po battery at the bottom of the chassis. Can you tell me more about the
BCM2836 is a slightly modiﬁed version of the 2835 – the main difference is that it now has an ARMv7 quad-core, 900-MHz chip and 512 Kb of cache” Below This little processor here is what’s boosting up the Raspberry Pi 2 core, 900-MHz chip and 512 Kb of cache. This is paired with an increased RAM of 1 GB and results in a huge power boost to the Raspberry Pi. Q How much more powerful? A The Raspberry Pi Foundation estimates that it’s about six times more powerful than the original Pi. From the
computing and hardware engineering with Raspberry Pi and this breadboardbased trafﬁc light simulation Even with a platform as cheap, simple and powerful as the Raspberry Pi, taking your ﬁrst foray into the world of physical computing and hardware projects can often be a fairly daunting experience. After unboxing your ﬁrst Raspberry Pi, you might be a little intimidated by those GPIO ports! On the plus side, however, physical computing is perhaps the most rewarding way to experiment with
independent Raspberry Pi retailers. The breadboard, LEDs, cables and resistors should cost you around £5 to £10 maximum. 02 Update your Pi Before undertaking any project, regardless of whether it is hardware or software based, you should always update your Raspberry Pi to ensure you have the most stable software versions and latest functionality. This is especially important when experimenting with GPIO. You can do this using the following commands: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade THE
