Raspberry Pi Model A Board (256 MB RAM, e14)

Raspberry Pi Model A

256 MB RAM, 1 USB Port

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 and word-processing, 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. Or something entirely different, it's up to you. :-)

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

    [*]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: one USB2.0 ports
    [*]Power supply: 5V via microUSB Dimensions: 85.6 mm x 53.98 mm

    Model A Notes:
    The Model A of the Raspberry Pi is a stripped down version of the Model B, there is no Ethernet, only one USB port and half the memory (256 MB instead of 512 MB). What sounds like a disadvantage, does not necessarily have to be one. The missing features do not only lower the price, they also lower the board's power consumption: The Model A only needs about one third of the power the Model B draws, so it's the perfect base for projects that need to be powered by batteries or solar cells.
