NEW PRODUCT – Raspberry Colored Enclosure for Raspberry Pi Computers #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
NEW PRODUCT – Raspberry Colored Enclosure for Raspberry Pi Computers. This compact, low-cost case by Cyntech is tailored to fit the Raspberry Pi board and provides openings for all the connectors. This includes an exit slot in the side of the case allowing a ribbon cable to be fitted to the board’s 26-pin GPIO header. Another neat feature is the light pipe window for viewing the board’s LED indicators. The case, which is supplied in the distinctive Raspberry colour and printed with the Raspberry Pi logo, provides an attractive solution for protecting the printed circuit board.
What is the Raspberry Pi® ? A low-cost ARM GNU/Linux box.
The Raspberry Pi® is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools. The design is based on a Broadcom BCM2835 system on a chip (SoC), which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 256 megabytes of RAM. The design does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, instead relying on an SD card for booting and long-term storage. The Foundation plans to support Fedora Linux as the initial system software package/distribution, with support for Debian and Arch Linux as well – Wikipedia.
Raspberry Pi® is a trademark of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
