Yarh.io comes out with two Raspberry Pi handheld computers #PiDay #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi

Yarh.io (Yet Another Raspberry Pi Handheld) has come out with two computers based on the Raspberry Pi.

The YARH.IO Micro 2 is a Raspberry Pi 3B+ based Hacker’s Linux Handheld

The YARH.IO Micro 2 has been made with hackers in mind, for computer experts who uses their technical knowledge to achieve new goals and overcome computer system limitations by non-standard or ‘hackable’ means.

YARH.IO Micro 2 project continues to take on the challenge of building a full featured, micro sized handheld, based on Raspberry Pi 3B+, 4″ touch screen and Bluetooth keyboard without touchpad.

YARH.IO Micro 2 can run Raspberry Pi OS or Kali Linux. It uses a Pimoroni Hyper Pixel 4″ IPS 800×480 display and has a single, removable, high capacity Fenix ARB-L18-3500U 3500mAh Li-ion USB Rechargeable Battery.

An Arduino proMicro module controls the battery voltage. The module reads battery and power supply voltage, making the results available over I2C bus to the Raspberry Pi and to various custom build applications. The module also controls power LED as a way to indicate battery charge status.

With the Arduino IDE installed, it is possible to program the proMicro directly on the device, to customize battery charge LED indicator, and to add other creative functionality.

A DS3231 High Precision RTC Clock Module is used to store current time and date for the Raspberry Pi.

For this model, the width of the main module is based on the keyboard dimensions for improved handling. The 5″ Resistive Touch Screen 800×480 HDMI TFT LCD Display is a good option for YARH.IO as it will allow you to perform all of the usual tasks with ease. A Fosmon Portable Lightweight Mini Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Controller has been selected as the best option for YARH.IO’s multifunctional design.

It uses a high capacity Fenix ARB-L21-5000 5000mAh Li-ion and includes a DS3231 High Precision RTC Clock Module.

Raspberry Pi GPIO connector is also available on the bottom of the main module, allowing for different add-on modules, including Lora radios, RFID readers/writers, and IR transceivers, to be mounted inside the extension module. This configuration works extremely well with Pi-DAC+, creating a great handheld audio player.
