About

The Raspberry Pi production board (model B Rev 2.0)

The Raspberry Pi (short: RPi or RasPi) is an ultra-low-cost ($25-$35) credit-card sized Linux computer which was conceived with the primary goal of teaching computer programming to children. It was developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, which is a UK registered charity (Registration Number 1129409). The foundation exists to promote the study of computer science and related topics, especially at school level, and to put the fun back into learning computing. The device is expected to have many other applications both in the developed and the developing world (Read more).

Raspberry Pi is manufactured and sold in partnership with the worldwide industrial distributors Premier Farnell/Element 14 and RS Components.

  • Products are RoHS, CE, FCC, CTick, CSA and WEEE compliant[1]. In common with all Electronic and Electrical products the Raspberry Pi should not be disposed of in household waste. Please contact the distributor from whom you purchased your Raspberry Pi device for details regarding WEEE in your country.
  • Price: 25USD Model A, 35USD for Model B, excluding taxes, postage and packaging. For information about availability and shipping see the Buying Guide.


History

If you are interested in why the Raspberry Pi was created, and why it is what it is, check the General History page, which highlights relevant events in its history. It is not intended to be a detailed history, so it can be read quickly. You could also check the design changes page for how the Raspberry Pi has evolved, and the manufacturing differences page that may help if you are having problems with your board.

Getting Started

Buying Guide


The Model Wizard will help you select your model to buy.


Where can I get one and for how much?

  • The Raspberry Pi can no longer only be purchased via their official distribution partners - detailed information can be found on the RPi Buying Guide page.

Basic Setup


First little Raspberry Pi Steps...

  • Ensure you have all the equipment you need to go with your Raspberry Pi.
  • Become familiar with the board layout and connect it ready for power up.
  • If you have not been provided with a pre-setup SD card you will need to prepare one with your chosen Operating System distribution
  • Note: On the Debian OS after you log in you need to type startx at the prompt to get a graphic desktop.
  • Particularly after first boot its important to do a clean shutdown with the command sudo halt

Beginners Guide


You've just got your new Raspberry Pi device - what now?

  • Get started with some basic projects and tutorials:

Raspberry Pi YouTube Tutorials
Another set of video tutorials
My First Raspberry Pi Game

Easy GPIO Hardware & Software - in-progress at the moment

Example projects/tuts which can be linked from here
(or from within a beginners guide page perhaps):
 Setup XBMC media centre
 Programming tutorials (Liams YouTube etc)
 Easy GPIO (when complete or similar thing).
 Also links to some basic linux user guides.
  • Take a look through the Community section, which contains a range of beginner and advanced tutorials and guides, as well as groups to help you find like-minded developers.

Resources

Hardware & Peripherals


Software & OS Distributions


The Raspberry Pi will run a range of OS Distributions and run a variety of software.

Documentation


Documentation relating to the Raspberry Pi can be found here.

Frambozenier.org Documentation Project Datasheets

Example documents which can be linked from here (or sub page):
 Official Datasheets
 White Papers
 User Manuals
 Recommended books (perhaps)

RPi Troubleshooting

Head over to the troubleshooting page for help fixing common problems.

RPi Bugs

Head over to the bugs page for a list of known bugs.

RPi Model B 3D CAD files

Theses are various 3D CAD Versions in both RAR and ZIP.

Community

Projects, Guides & Tutorials


  • An important source of information and guides is the Official Forum.
  • Knowledgeable users may want to review and help out with the Tasks page.
  • Get started by following some of the many Tutorials.
  • Common tasks and useful tips are available through the Guides page.
  • Projects can be found, and added to, on the Projects page.


Schools, Universities, Clubs & Groups


  • The Raspberry Pi Foundation's aims include encouraging education. Several groups including Computing At School aim to bring Computing Science back into schools.
  • Go to the Education Page to add your project and find helpful links.

Supporting Communities


The Raspberry Pi Community is steadily growing:

About the RPi Wiki

Do not be afraid to add your bit, content is vital for the wiki to function.

We are governed by the RPi Wiki Council (RPWC). New guidelines not made by Ghans alone are currently being drafted. As the RPi wiki is currently a wreck, the council's current goal is to clean up the RPi Wiki!

Translations

The wiki is being translated into several languages, some of which can be seen on the hub banner above. Current languages include:

Any help translating would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to those who have already contributed!
