The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a British charity and company founded in 2009 to promote the study of basic computer science in schools, and is responsible for developing the Raspberry Pi single-board computers.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a charitable organization registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales. The board of trustees was assembled by 2008 and the Raspberry Pi Foundation was founded as a registered charity in May 2009 in Caldecote, England. In 2016, The Foundation moved its headquarters to Station Road, Cambridge. The Foundation is supported by the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory and Broadcom. Its aim is to “promote the study of computer science and related topics, especially at school level, and to put the fun back into learning computing.” Project co-founder Eben Upton is a former academic, currently employed by Broadcom as a system-on-chip architect and associate technical director. Components, albeit in small numbers, were able to be sourced from suppliers, due to the charitable status of the organization.
What started as a simple review of the TS7-Pro display for a project, has evolved into a comprehensive examination of a Raspberry Pi setup. This setup features the TS7-Pro display, a night vision camera, a SunFounder PiPower module, and a DIY 3D printed rechargeable battery pack. Witness how the night vision camera effectively captures detailed images, even in low-light conditions.
Let’s explore the SunFounder Pironman Mini PC for Raspberry Pi, featuring a built-in M.2 SATA SSD slot for improvements in storage performance. This compact case, complete with an efficient cooling system and a pleasing aesthetic, could be the ultimate choice for maximizing the potential of your Raspberry Pi.
Building and Programming Your PiCar-X: A guide to getting started with your robot car using EzBlock programming language. Learn how to assemble the parts, program your PiCar-X using drag-and-drop blocks, 3D print a simple LED holder to add lights to your car, and create a blink example. Also, learn how to use a button to turn the LEDs on and off, as well as control the camera.
We have already talked about the internal flash memories for rp2040 boards and other microcontrollers, which are very useful for storing pages or static files. However, they are not suitable for logging or similar applications, so we will learn how to connect and use an SD card which can have a lot of space, a very small form factor, and low power consumption.
Even though Raspberry Pi Foundation has released the Pico W version, I still find this tutorial useful for adding WiFi to rp2040 boards using an ESP32.
We will use an esp32-wroom-32 (or esp32-s) as WiFi coprocessor and the full potential WiFiNINA library to handle it.
Whoever has started to peek into the wonderful world of small electronics will undoubtedly have read about Raspberry Pi or Arduino boards. This is where I personally started to ask myself, what is the right board for which project?
In this article, we are going to explore the w5500 module with our Raspberry Pi Pico, w and the other rp2040 boards. w5500 is a quite powerful device that allows an Ethernet wired connection.
We continue to explore the rp2040 devices, very interesting microcontrollers. All prototype boards come with integrated SPI Flash. Raspberry Pi selected the LittleFS filesystem to manage this storage, a good compromise between functionality and performance.
It’s time to explore the new series of microcontrollers based on the rp2040 chip from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. As usual, we are going to use a generic Arduino IDE and C language.
