Raspberry Pi:                         

qC2eT

A new sensation in the world of electronics. This ultra-low cost and smallest form factor Linux based computer is expected to revolutionize the computing world. Pi can be used to play games or control robots or act as a media Centre with Air Play. The board is a great educational tool. It is currently being employed in schools for teaching programing and soon going to be part of many engineering projects. Besides this another application where you realise its superpowers when you use it for 'Internet of Things'.

About Raspberry Pi
This is a credit-card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools. The Raspberry Pi has a Broadcom BCM2835 system on a chip (SoC), which includes an ARM11 700 MHz processor, Video Core IV GPU, 512MB of RAM. It does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, but uses an SD card for booting and long-term storage.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation provides Debian and Arch Linux ARM distributions for download. Also planned are tools for supporting Python as the main programming language, with support for BBC BASIC, (via the RISC OS image or the "Brandy Basic" clone for Linux), C, and Perl.
We are happy to announce that Inventrom brings you a two day workshop on Raspberry Pi where the participants will learn about Embedded Linux Programing and Peripheral Interfacing for a Raspberry Pi platform. They will also perform various basic hands on experiments on the GPIO pins (general purpose I/O) such as O/P control, receiving the sensor input, Interfacing I/O devises such as LEDs, LCDs etc. The participants will also learn to Interface the Wissap wireless sensor as well as controlling a Robot over the Internet.

The workshop outlines the following concepts:

Day-1:
• Introduction to Raspberry Pi
• Architecture and Hardware specifications
• Brief introduction to Linux (embedded)
• Introduction to ARM11 microcontroller
• Python – programming language
• Sensors
• GPIOs

 

Day-2:
• Setting up Raspberry PI
    • lashing the loading the SD card with the OS
    • Booting the OS
    • Intro of items on the desktop (Debian Linux)
• Intro and hands-on coding of Python (comparison with C programming over Linux machines)
• Enabling GPIO pins
• LED interfacing using the GPIO
• Physical Email notifier
• Using HDMI port, USB ports(mouse/keyboard), Audio jack
• Button input and LDR interfacing
• Buzzer, PIR and various sensor interfacing
