The Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi - Prototypying LEDs

So many months ago I picked up a pair of Raspberry Pies (Model B) computers from Element 14 for about $35 USD each.

The plan was to really just play around and see what I could do with a 35 dollar credit card sized computer.  Well after a few months of really doing nothing, I finally figured out a few interesting ideas.  For those interested, the following are the stats of these machines:

  • CPU: 700 MHz
  • Memory (RAM): 512 MB (Shared with GPU)
  • USB 2.0 Ports: 2
  • Video Options:  Composite RAC and HDMI
  • Audio: 3.5 mm Jack and HDMI
  • Network: 10/100 Ethernet
  • Power: 700 mA (3.5 W)
  • Weight: 45g
  • Size: 3.370 Inches by 2.125 Inches

So after a little bit of thinking and consideration I decided to make at least 2 major projects, which I will over time describe what I did in these blogs pages.  I’ll post a separate blog post for each project to keep them separate and easier to follow.
