Raspberry Pi Stress Test #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
One of the best things about participating in science is that you are asked to document and share your data. Here’s a great project from Zipfelmaus.com that shares details of a tough stress-test used to calculate thermal factors when putting a whole bank of these into a webserver project — well worth a read for anyone looking to create an enclosure or rack for an array of these!
We want to host a few of our blogs here at home. Before we start and build a rack to hold all of the Raspberry Pi’s required, we want to make sure that there are not thermal problems.
Thats why we wanted to stress test one of them.
We used the program stress to generate some load.
We did not however not use the HD option, because we did not want to damage the SD card.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
