Default Raspberry Pi

Anyone else get one, got mine in the mail last friday. Got it running on linux already. Works pretty good, going to use mine for a carputer/gauges with a 10" lilliput screen.

should work great, so far the graphics/video have been stellar, but I've had some issues with text, some lettering is very blocky. I've only spent a hour playing with it so more to come for sure.

I plan to run megatunix or something simular, so far the megasquirt community has had great luck with them.

here is tunix on a raspberry http://www.neonsquirt.com/tunix_pi.jpg

I'll have a 10" screen probably in 720p

I ordered one right when they were announced, but canceled my order because I got impatient. I'll probably wait until all the kinks are out before I order another.

If i could turn it into a legit extender for WMC (not the XBMC) I would be in for at least 5.

Raspberry Pi now comes with double RAM at the same price
Raspberry Pi Foundation upgrades Model B to 512 MB to increase its app range.


If you're on the waiting list for a Raspberry Pi—the $35 Linux computer based on the ARM system-on-a-chip architecture—there's a silver lining to being in the backlog. Starting today, the Model B Raspberry Pi will ship with 512 megabytes of RAM—double its original memory for the same price.

Foundation founder and trustee Eben Upton announced the upgrade on the Raspberry Pi blog today. He said there had been many requests from the community for a more expensive "Model C" Raspberry Pi. "This would be useful for people who want to use the Pi as a general-purpose computer, with multiple large applications running concurrently," he wrote. "[It] would enable some interesting embedded use cases (particularly using Java) which are slightly too heavyweight to fit comfortably in 256MB."

But rather the foundation wanted to stay within the Raspberry Pi's $35 price point. The organization worked with manufacturers RS Components and element14/Premier Farnell as well as the suppliers of the Pi's components to upgrade the existing Model B to 512 MB of RAM—ultimately preserving the $35 tag. All pending orders for the Model B are being filled with the upgrade.

well after to much time committed to making Raspberry Pi try and run tuning software for megasquirt, it just ended up to slow for me. So I've moved on to a full Carputer

hdmi
10 usb ports
60gb ssd
wireless N
BT (using a BT keyboard with a touchpad)
1080p 7" hdmi lilliput screen

one is power, other is pigtail to connector, then another to that pigtail which is mountable toggle power switch with led. Then the blue 3mm power to 3mm power I haven't figured out. I also got like 20ft of automotive grade wire to wire to the power pigtail. I'll take pics once its installed. Should have a OS on it this week, then when weather breaks a hair I'll install it into the car.

Got it up and working, worked out pretty nicely. Turn car on, pc automaticlly turns on (if car shuts off windows automaticly shuts down after 1 min of no ignition source), from completely turned off to tunerstudio with moving gauges its about 40 seconds. Not bad for a atom on windows 7. Also installed VLC and am also going to install streets and trips with a gps module. Out of the 60gb ssd, windows 7 and megasquirt tuning software took about 9gb.

Read and Write speeds weren't anything impressive, If I recall it was 180/135. Windows score was a 3.2, processor was lowest. HDD was 7.3 and graphics were 5.8 if I remember right.

I'll post pics once its all installed in the car.

Did you have the OS running on SD card or USB thumb drive for your Pi?

What power supply are you using? Same one for both the Lilliput and Zotac?

I am working on something similar using a touch screen and laptop + dock. That way I can un-dock the laptop and use it when I'm not driving the car.

I got an Opus PSU to power both. It has a power button lead for timed power-on of the laptop but the more I think about it, I want more control over booting the thing and am planning to just extend the cables for the power switch.

considering the read/write speeds, the flash card I had was just as fast as a 2.0 thumbdrive. Didn't matter anyways, processor was always pegged out.

No, the raspberry had a 12v dc to usb converter using a usb cable to micro usb to power it. The Zotac is using a dc to dc pico 160watt psu specificlly for this purpose..which is the reason it has ignition voltage input. Psu alone is roughly 80 bucks.

You Can Build This Elegant Raspberry Pi Tablet Yourself


Hey, a new tablet! Crisp 10-inch touchscreen? Check. Luxurious carbon fiber and wood case? Present. Huge 10,000mAh battery? Yep. Linux-based and built at home? Err...
This chunky-yet-oddly-elegant tablet was designed and built from scratch by Michael Castor. Powered by one of those open source Raspberry Pi mini computers, it's affectionately known as the PiPad. Castor explains his motivations:
It seems that every day a manufacturer comes out with a new tablet computer. Thinner, lighter, faster, but it seems that they all look about the same and accomplish roughly the same things. When I set out to build my Raspberry Pi tablet I wanted something different. I wanted an all-in-one system that was usable, portable, and Linux based. Additionally, it had to look good. Since I wanted to use it on flights the device couldn't freak out the TSA or the old lady sitting next to me.
The results speak for themselves. It's not perfect—it doesn't have a camera, and all that battery still only provides 6 hours of use—but it's pretty cool nonetheless. You can find out all the components required, and how to build it, over on Castor's blog. [Michael Castor via MAKE]

Raspberry Pi introduces an improved model -- the Model B+

  • inShare3



We’re big fans of the Raspberry Pi here at BetaNews. The popular (not to mention super-affordable) credit card-sized ARM GNU/Linux computer was designed to bring programming back into schools but has quickly found an audience way beyond that.
The Pi is available in two variations -- the $25 Model A, which comes with just the one USB port and no Ethernet, and the more advanced $35 Model B with Ethernet and two USB ports. Today, however, there’s a third choice -- the Model B+.

Arriving two years after the Model B, the B+ uses the same BCM2835 application processor, and comes with the same amount of RAM (512MB) and the same software. So what’s different? The Raspberry Pi Foundation lists the following key improvements:
  • More GPIO. The GPIO header has grown to 40 pins, while retaining the same pinout for the first 26 pins as the Model B.
  • More USB. There are now 4 USB 2.0 ports, compared to 2 on the Model B, and better hotplug and overcurrent behavior.
  • Micro SD. The old friction-fit SD card socket has been replaced with a much nicer push-push micro SD version.
  • Lower power consumption. By replacing linear regulators with switching ones power consumption has been reduced by between 0.5W and 1W.
  • Better audio. The audio circuit incorporates a dedicated low-noise power supply.
  • Neater form factor. The USB connectors have been aligned with the board edge, composite video moved onto the 3.5mm jack, and four squarely-placed mounting holes have been added.
The B+ will be made available alongside the Model B (there will be some stock to clear, but the Raspberry Pi Foundation says it will also keep the Model B in production for as long as there’s demand).
You can buy the new model from Farnell/element14/Newark, or RS/Allied Components.

Screw a tablet, I would heavily consider doing this with Raspberry Pi.

Electronics are one area where I have not delved before, but now that I can at least rudimentarily make just about any physical thing i'd want to build, I'd like to start learning.

A raspberry pi setup would be perfect for running a motion-control system for filmmaking, and I think that's were I'm going to start learning.

Arduino - IMO - much better for learning.

the Pi's are great, but not exactly user friendly. Arduino I thought was easier to master, and had more building blocks available.

I use them both - I've got an Aircrack-ng/Airodump.ng set-up on a Pi now that's a beast at cracking WPA2 networks. (with a 22gig pyrit DB behind it)
