General Purpose Input/Output (a.k.a. GPIO) is a generic pin on a chip whose behavior (including whether it is an input or output pin) can be controlled (programmed) through software. For more information see:[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPIO the wikipedia article].

==Production Board GPIO Header==
The production board has a 26-pin 1.27mm (50mil) expansion header, arranged in a 2x13 strip. They provide 8 GPIO pins plus access to I2C, SPI, UART), as well as +3V3, +5V and GND supply lines.  Pin one is column 0 on the bottom row.  All the UART, SPI and I2C pins can be reconfigured as GPIO pins, to provide a total of 17 GPIO pins.<ref>http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/384</ref>
Voltage levels are 3v3.  There is no over-voltage protection on the board - the intention is that people interested in serious interfacing will use an external board with buffers, level conversion and analog I/O rather than soldering directly onto the main board.
At least some of the GPIO pins support PWM.<ref>http://twitter.com/#!/Raspberry_Pi/status/140548306886602752</ref>
Each GPIO can interrupt, high/low/rise/fall/change.<ref>http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/384#comment-5217</ref>
It is also possible to reconfigure some of the pins to provide an ARM JTAG interface.<ref>http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=1288.1</ref>
It is also possible to reconfigure some of the pins to provide an I2S or PCM interface.<ref>http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=1288.2</ref>
It is also possible to reconfigure some of the pins to provide a second I2C interface. [no-ref]
Kernel boot messages go to the UART at 115200bps.

Maximum permitted current draw from the 3v3 pin is 50mA.
Maximum permitted current draw from the 5v pin is the USB input current (usually 1A) minus any current draw from the rest of the board, or about 650 mA. <ref>http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=1536#postid-21841</ref>
==Driver support==
The Foundation will not include a GPIO driver in the initial release, standard linux GPIO drivers should work with minimal modification.<ref>http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=1278.0</ref>
The Foundation will not include a SPI driver in the initial release, we hope the community might write one.<ref>http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=1278.0</ref>
The Foundation will not include an I2C driver in the initial release, we hope the community might provide one, standard linux I2C drivers should work with minimal modification.<ref>http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=1202</ref>
===Code examples===
Here, some code examples should be shown.
