A note about this page: For USB devices, please specify if they required a powered hub

Notes

19-Apr-2012: Now that the Model B board is shipping, details added should relate to this board and the default Debian distribution unless stated otherwise. A suggested suffix markup scheme is as follows:

  • (A) - Relates to model A production board
  • (B) - Relates to model B production board
  • (!) - Information from alpha and beta board days -- beta board verified peripherals should still apply to production boards for the most part, but the alpha board is fairly different
  • No markup - relates to all production boards

Discuss: http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=247

If you are adding to a product list it would help clarity if entries are kept/added in alphabetical order.

Warning Warning: Adding peripherals may increase the loading on the power supply to your board and this, in turn, may affect the voltage presented to the RPi. If the RPi's supply voltage falls below a certain value (anecdotally stated as around 4.75V), or it begins to fluctuate, your setup may become unstable. There is a Wiki section about this issue which is worth a read.

Powered USB Hubs

A number of low-cost powered USB hubs are known to have caused problems. Members of the Raspberry Pi forums have reported low power or no power at all in some cases. The following is a list of specific Powered USB Hubs which appear to be fault-free. Please note that these do not take into account powering the Raspberry Pi from the hub, in addition to its peripherals.

Working USB Hubs

  • Belkin
    • F4U040 4-Port Ultra-Slim Desktop hub (powered 5v, 2.6A)
    • F5U224 4 port powered USB hub
    • F5U231 Hi-speed USB 2.0 Tertrahub - 4 port powered USB hub
    • F5U404 Hi-Speed USB 2.0 4-Port Mobile Hub
    • F5U706ea/uk 2-in-1 Hub (USB 2.0, powered, 7-port)
  • Digicom
    • [1]MiniHUB 4-Port USB 2.0 with PSU 5V - 2A .
  • Logik
    • LP4HUB10 4-Port USB Hub
  • LogiLink
    • UA0096 USB 2.0 Hub, 10-Port with PSU 5V, 3.5A
  • Newlink
    • NLUSB2-224P 4 port USB 2.0 Mini hub with PSU 5V 1A
  • SumVision
    • Sumvision Slim 4 Port High Speed USB 2.0 HUB with PSU 5V 1.0A (from | 7dayshop )
  • Targus
    • ACH81xx 7-port powered hub. 5V 3A power supply, with 2 high power ports. (possible conflicting behaviour with USB keyboard / Wifi Dongles)

Problem USB Hubs

  • Belkin
    • 7-Port Powered Mobile Hub - device labelled F4U018, packaging labelled F5U701. lsusb reveals it to be two Genesys Logic 4-port hubs based on the GL850G chipset (vendor: 0x05e3 product: 0x0608) ganged together. Yields a lot of "handle_hc_chhltd_intr_dma:: XactErr without NYET/NAK/ACK" errors and device resets in /var/log/messages. Low speed devices such as keyboards work OK, wifi/mass storage is unreliable or broken.
  • D-Link
    • 7-Port USB Hub DUB-H7 (Prevents ethernet from being recognised so wrong time & no IP address).
  • E-Solution
    • 4-Port 2A Supply (Does not detect at all during boot or after boot- no messages) [IC = Alcor Micro Corp (AU6254)]
  • Kensington
    • 7-Port Dome Hub model no 1500129 (Possible problems with malfunctioning keyboard, kills mouse when GUI started).
  • Soniq
    • 4-Port 5V supply. Model number CUH100. (B). Appears to draw power away from the Raspberry Pi, even when the Pi has an isolated power line. Netgear WNA1100 WiFi Adapter (which is known to work in other setups is recognized, but unresponsive.
  • Unbranded / Multiple Brands
    • 7-port silver/black hub. Also sold elsewhere under brands such as 'EX-Pro', 'Trixes' and 'Xentra' -- This is probably due to an inadequate power supply.
    • Generic 7-port black hub with Genesys Logic GL850A chipset
    • Cerulian 10 Port USB 2.0 Top Loading Hub with 2A supply (kills mouse and network port)[1]
    • USB 2.0 4 PORT INT/EXT DUAL HUB BAY -- Genesys Chipset -- idVendor=05e3, idProduct=0607 -- low speed devices worked, but strange USB failures when X session started. High speed devices such as hard drives had failures.

USB Remotes

  • [2] DIGICOM WKEYPE01 - Mini RF Wireless Keyboard and touchpad

USB WiFi Adapters

See also: http://www.element14.com/community/docs/DOC-44703/l/raspberry-pi-wifi-adapter-testing

There is a howto on installing the TL-WN722N adapter here, which also acts as a guide for installing others too.

Working USB Wifi Adapters

These adapters are known to work on the Raspberry Pi. This list is not exhaustive, other adapters may well work, but have not yet been tried.

Note: A WiFi adapter will probably need more power than the Raspberry Pi USB port can provide, especially if there is a large distance from the WiFi adapter to the WiFi Access Point. Therefore, you may need to plug the WiFi adapter into a powered USB hub.

USB Bluetooth adapters

  • Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode) - (USB ID 0a12:0001)

USB Ethernet adapters

USB Sound Cards

You will usually want the alsa package for sound. In the Debian image for Raspberry Pi (and possibly other distributions) USB sound cards are prevented from loading as the first sound card, which can be an annoyance if it's the only device you have. To disable this behaviour edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and comment out the last line; options snd-usb-audio index=-2

USB UART adapters

The USB UART adapter is used to access the serial console of the Raspberry Pi from a development host such as a laptop or desktop PC. The USB end connects to the PC and the UART header end connects to the USB. While it is possible to connect the USB end to another Raspberry Pi, this configuration has not been tested unless explicitly mentioned against an individual entry below.

Other, exotic USB devices

Power adapters

The Raspberry Pi uses a standard Micro USB (type B) power connector, which runs at 5v. Generally you can use a MicroUSB to USB cable and then either power the Raspberry Pi directly from your main computers USB ports (if they provide enough power), or by using a USB to Mains adaptor. A number of mobile phones use MicroUSB power cables, and these are compatible with the Raspberry Pi in most cases. Below is a list of power adaptors known to work.

Display adapters

While technically there shouldn't be a difference between one (for example) HDMI->DVI adapter and another, it would be nice to have a list of working ones so if necessary, you can just buy a recommended one (contributors should give links) instead of hunting around. This section could contain information about verified HDMI->DVI, CompositeRCA->SCART, CompositeRCA->VGA boxes/chipsets, and HDMI->VGA boxes/chipsets.

HDMI->DVI-D

A combination cable of a short HDMI cable & HDMI/DVI converter from Kenable worked. The parts used are 1 x PSG02582 and 1 x C-HDMI-1.5-LC

HDMI->VGA converter boxes

Note that the RPi_config.txt file will have to be edited if the converter or VGA monitor does not support 1080p resolution, this is because the Rpi cannot detect the resolution. initially setting to VGA resolution is probably best

Also note that hdmi_force_hotplug may have to be enabled.

According to user "asb" -- http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007KEIRNG -- the Neewer HDMI to VGA adapter works with the Pi.

This adapter (from Kanaan) -- http://www.amazon.co.uk/KanaaN-Adapter-Converter-Cable-Resolutions/dp/B007QT0NNW -- is working. Quality not wonderful, but certainly usable, on 1400x900 monitor.

According to user "na1pir" -- http://www.ebay.com/itm/BK-HDMI-Male-to-VGA-RGB-Female-HDMI-to-VGA-Video-Converter-adapter-1080P-for-PC-/140742987581

Composite->SCART

None explicitly mentioned

Composite->VGA converter boxes

None explicitly mentioned, and they are pricey so the chances of someone buying one to test functionality is low

SD cards

Note that manufacturers change their designs over time, even as the specs stay the same. (E.g. an ACME 8 GB class 4 card manufactured in 2011 might work, while one manufactured in 2012 might not.) For this reason, please specify product numbers in the lists below, when possible.

Problem SD Cards

There are issues with most Class 10 SDHC cards, apparently due to a bug in the Broadcom bootloader.[8]

This seems to have been fixed in sdhci.c: [9] Further feedback will be useful.

If you add an SD card here, please also mention the kernel date and the date you tried it. This allows people to estimate how likely it is that a driver-fix in the kernel has been fixed. (i.e. I think some/most of the cards here work fine now, because a problem in the kernel driver has been fixed).
