The Rasberry Pi is a single computer board along with credit size which is able to perform all those tasks our computer can do such as games, word processing, spreadsheets or playing HD videos etc. The inventor of this credit size computer is the Raspberry Pi foundation from UK and has been ready for the public consumption since 2012.
The basic idea behind this computer is to make a low cost educational microcomputer for the students and children and the ultimate goal behind the designing Raspberry pi board is to appreciate learning as well as experimentation and innovation for the school levels students.
This pi board is portable and low cost and maximum of the raspberry pi computers are being used in mobile phones. In the present scenario, the growth of mobile computing technologies is very high and a huge segment is being driven by mobile industries.
Raspberry Pi Technology: This technology comes in two models which are A and B in which the main difference is the USB Port. Model A is responsible for consuming less power and an Ethernet port is not included in it. But it is included in the model B. in addition to this, this technology comes with a set of open source technologies means communication and multimedia web technologies. A computer module is launched by the foundation of raspberry pi board in the year 2014. It packages a model B raspberry board into module in order to use as a part of the embedded systems and encouraging their use.
Raspberry pi Hardware specifications: It comprises a program memory along with processor and graphics chip. It also includes CPU, GPU, Ethernet port etc. There is a necessity for mass storage so that we can use an SD flashes memory card as well as raspberry board could boot from the SD card like the PC boots up into the windows from its hard disk. Mainly essential hardware specifications of raspberry include the SD card which contains Linux OS as well as US keyboard and monitor.
Memory: This board is designed with 256 MB of SDRAM along with model B that is designed with 51 MB. This circuit board is a small size PC in comparison to the other PCs. The regular PCs RAM memory is available in gigabytes but in this technology, RAM memory is available more than 256 MB.
