DEFINITION
An inexpensive, credit-card sized personal computer designed so that kids worldwide can learn programming.
The Raspberry Pi is a series of credit card-sized single-board computers developed in England, United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intent to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and developing countries. The original Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi 2 are manufactured in several board configurations through licensed manufacturing agreements with Newark element14 (Premier Farnell), RS Components and Egoman. The hardware is the same across all manufacturers. All Raspberry Pis include the same VideoCore IV graphics processing unit (GPU), and either a single-core ARMv6-compatible CPU or a newer ARMv7-compatible quad-core one (in Pi 2) and 1 GB of RAM (in Pi 2), 512 MB (in Pi 1 models B and B+), or 256 MB (in models A and A+, and in the older model B). They have a Secure Digital (SDHC) slot (models A and B) or a MicroSDHC one (models A+, B+, and Pi 2) for boot media and persistent storage. In 2014, the Raspberry Pi Foundation launched the Compute Module, for use as a part of embedded systems for the same compute power as the original Pi. In early February 2015, the next-generation Raspberry Pi, Raspberry Pi 2, was released. That new computer board is initially available only in one configuration (model B) and has a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU and 1 GB of RAM with remaining specifications being similar to those of the prior generation model B+. The Raspberry Pi 2 retains the same US$35 price of the model B, with the US$20 model A+ remaining on sale. In November 2015, the Foundation launched the Raspberry Pi Zero, a smaller product priced at US$5.
IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Hardware products that are used by end users that contain IoT technology.
Wearables are smart electronic devices that can be incorporated into clothing or worn on the body as implants/accessories
Software
Software that ingests data and visualises it to generate insights to answer specific questions
Software that can take over complex human operations and operate independently of human intervention.
Platforms that facilitate and allow application developments for specific use cases and/or client requirements.
Software that focus on securing devices, machines, and communications between them.
Providing the infrastructure to store and manage data.
Services
Bringing together software, hardware, middleware, and infrastructure components to build an end-to-end solution based on specific client requirements.
Developing custom hardware for specific uses and operating environments/needs.
Developing custom software for specific uses and operating environments/needs.
Providing network connectivity to allow communication between devices, things, and operators.
