Engr.Abdul Samad Malik Electronics Engineer RASPBERRY PI What is Raspberry pi? 1 What is Raspberry pi? The raspberry pi is the small, low cast computer. The size of a credit card that connects to a computer monitor. Using raspberry pi we can watch high definition video, access spreadsheet, word processing and play games. Raspberry pi can do everything a desktop computer does, including accessing the internet. The raspberry pi can communicate with the outside world and has been used in variety of digital maker projects. Raspberry pi is also used in music machines and parent detectors, as well as weather stations and tweeting bird houses with infrared cameras. Raspberry pi uses cases 1. Desktop computer A simple desktop can be built using a raspberry pi, a micros SD card and power source. An HDMI cable and a suitable display such as an old monitor are also required, you also need a USB keyboard and mouse. 2. Robotics controller There are numerous raspberry pi robot-controller projects. A specific robotics package for pi is available, which is powered by the device battery and can be used to interface with control robots. 3. Printing With raspberry pi we can print everything. All we shall need a raspberry pi that is connected to your home network, as well as printer server software. This is accomplished by installing the samba file sharing program, than CUPS (common UNIX printing system). 4. Game server The basic operating system for raspberry pi has a special version of the Minecraft game pre-installed. Raspberry pi application can be used as a game server .it’s fantastic Minecraft game server a wonder full gaming experience can be created by using raspberry pi. 5. Game machine As a retro gaming machine raspberry pi is perfedt.it is one of the machine lightest components. Raspberry pi zer.in particular is variant that can fit into small locations and used for gaming projects. 2 Types of raspberry pi 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

It is the size of a credit card. Its inexpensive Its usage as a server is more efficient than using a regular server. It is ideal for adaptive technology. It is can be used for small businesses. Raspberry pi disadvantage 1. It is not a computer replacement. And the processor is not as fast, downloading and installing software takes time, so you will not be able to do intricate multitasking. 2. Other operating systems such as widows are incompatible. 3. This product can’t be beneficial of larger businesses that already have large server that can perform all of the tasks that the raspberry pi can. 4. As a result it would not be worth it, and putting everything together take time.
