Raspberry Pi Model B Board
« on: August 01, 2012, 01:40:14 PM »


Raspberry Pi Model B

w/ 256 MB RAM, 2 USB Ports and Ethernet

The Raspberry Pi (short: RPi or RasPi) is an ultra-low-cost credit-card sized computer board which was conceived with the primary goal of teaching computer programming to children. It's also a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games, it even plays high-definition video. Or you can use it as a small server for applications like mpd or ownCloud. Or as a gaming or emulation system, e.g. the RPi board plus Keyrah plus a C64 case and keyboard make a superb Über-Commodore machine. :-)

The system must be booted from an SD card (suitable card images are freely available), other mass storage devices can be connected via USB.

Features:
    [*]SoC: Broadcom BCM2835 (CPU, GPU and SDRAM)
    [*]CPU: 700 MHz ARM1176JZF-S core (ARM11 family)
    [*]GPU: Broadcom VideoCore IV, OpenGL ES 2.0, OpenVG 1080p30 H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High-Profile decoder
    [*]Memory (SDRAM): 256 Megabytes (MiB)
    [*]Video output: Composite RCA, HDMI
    [*]Audio output: 3.5 mm, HDMI
    [*]Mass storage: SD/MMC slot
    [*]USB: two USB2.0 ports
    [*]Network: 10/100 Ethernet RJ45
    [*]Power supply: 5V/700 mA (3.5 W) via microUSB Dimensions: 85.6 mm x 53.98 mm

    Impressive!  It will be interesting to see what can be done with this as time goes by.

    Seems more than a little dishonest to be disguising this advertising link for Vesalia as a neutral news item. Especially when the Raspberry Pi model B is actually £29.46 including delivery.

    Should anyone wish to buy one from a recognised distributor, rather than this "Amiga company" making 30% markup on a product made by a charity:

    Mac Mini G4 (1.5GHz, 64MB VRam, 1GB Ram): MorphOS 3.6
    Powerbook 5.8 (15", 1.67GHz, 128MB VRam, 1GB Ram): MorphOS 3.8.

    Windows-free since 2011-2014 (Damn you Netflix!)

    I've just ordered one of these (from element14)

    shall see how it goes ;)

    I'd always wanted to build a Sega Megadrive emulator into a sega case, while keeping all the external connectors original...

    this looks almost perfect for it ;)

    it is still better than the 80-100% markup I've seen on ebay...
