Introduction:

This article is aimed at people who are new to the world of Raspberry Pi. It gives an idea about what Raspberry Pi is and what are the uses. It also gives a simple guide to setup your first Pi and its OS, 

What's Raspberry Pi:

  • Raspberry Pi is an amazing little device, The Raspberry Pi is not an outright replacement for your desktop computer or laptop.

  • You can run Windows IoT Core OS on it (its ARM-based processor doesn’t support x86/x64 code), although you can run many distributions of Windows, Linux—including distributions with desktop environments, web browsers, and other elements you would expect in a desktop computer.

Image Module of Raspberry Pi

Note: The following image is varied depends upon the model,
 
 
 

What’s on Raspberry Pi Board:

Note: The following image shows the compete overview of I/O Components on board,

  • Broadcom Processor
  • SD Card Slot (Requires 8GB Class 10* Memory Card)
  • Audio O/P Port
  • Extended 40 General Purpose Input Output PIN for I/O interface
  • HDMI Port
  • 4 USB 2.0 Port to connect any USB devices such as keyboard, Mouse etc.
  • Ethernet Lan Port
  • CSI camera portand DSI display port 

Pin Details:

NOTE: PIN Configuration varies depends on the Model, 

  • Raspberry Pi 2 Model B has 40 pin GPIO
  • GPIO support the direct connection between the Sensors and Objects
  • Input and Output operation have performed through GPIO pin.

  • Programmable GPIO Pin Such as GPIO 04, 05, 06, 12, 13, 16, 17, 19, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27 these pin used for setting value by user using Software Ide.
  • Board itself produce 3.3v & 5v DC Power Supply.
  • Gnd Supported on Board itself.
Note: GPIO Pin Value Should be HIGH OR LOW Condition in Programming Logic. 

Preparing for working with Raspberry Pi:

  1. [SD CARD] Contains Raspberry Pi Support Operating System Such as Windows10 IOT Core, Raspbian [NOOBS] based on Linux            
  2. Note: For Windows OS installation Windowsondevices or for Linux OS installation Raspbian[NOOBS]
  3. Power Supply 5v DC Supply Via USB cable or Adaptor
  4. Input Devices such as USB Keyboard, Mouse, Webcam etc.,
  5. Internet(Ethernet/ Wi-Fi) Provide Internet supply to the Raspberry Device
  6. Audio (3.5mm Audio Jack) if Required.

Where to buy: 

  • Different Models are available on the Online market.
  • Before buying please refer the comparison table.

Conclusion: 

Raspberry Pi is an innovative product. The device can surely help anyone who really wants to lean electronics and computers. Supporting computer operating systems like Windows 10 IOT CORE, Linux and providing simple input/output lines i.e. the GPIO makes it perfect for controlling almost anything. Programming the GPIO is much easy and intuitive then a traditional microprocessor.
