Raspberry Pi

raspberry pi, raspberry pie recipe
The Raspberry Pi is a series of credit card-sized single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries345 The original model became far more popular than anticipated,6 selling outside of its target market for uses such as robotics Peripherals including keyboards, mice and cases are not included with the Raspberry Pi Some accessories however have been included in several official and unofficial bundles6

According to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, over 5 million Raspberry Pis have been sold before February 2015, making it the best-selling British computer7

Several generations of Raspberry Pis have been released The first generation Raspberry Pi 1 Model B was released in February 2012 It was followed by a simpler and inexpensive model Model A In 2014, the foundation released a board with an improved design in Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ The model laid the current "mainline" form-factor Improved A+ and B+ models were released a year later A cut down "compute module" was released in April 2014, and a Raspberry Pi Zero with smaller size and limited input/output I/O and general-purpose input/output GPIO abilities was released in November 2015 for US$5 The Raspberry Pi 2 which added more RAM was released in February 2015 Raspberry Pi 3 Model B released in February 2016 is bundled with on-board WiFi and Bluetooth As of December 2016, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the newest mainline Raspberry Pi These boards are priced between US$5–35

All models feature a Broadcom system on a chip SoC, which includes an ARM compatible central processing unit CPU and an on chip graphics processing unit GPU, a VideoCore IV CPU speed ranges from 700 MHz to 12 GHz for the Pi 3 and on board memory range from 256 MB to 1 GB RAM Secure Digital SD cards are used to store the operating system and program memory in either the SDHC or MicroSDHC sizes Most boards have between one and four USB slots, HDMI and composite video output, and a 35 mm phone jack for audio Lower level output is provided by a number of GPIO pins which support common protocols like I²C The B-models have an 8P8C Ethernet port and the Pi 3 has on board Wi-Fi 80211n and Bluetooth

The Foundation provides Raspbian, a Debian-based Linux distribution for download, as well as third party Ubuntu, Windows 10 IOT Core, RISC OS, and specialised media center distributions8 It promotes Python and Scratch as the main programming language, with support for many other languages9 The default firmware is closed source, while an unofficial open source is available


The Raspberry Pi hardware has evolved through several versions that feature variations in memory capacity and peripheral-device support

This block diagram depicts Models A, B, A+, and B+ Model A, A+, and the Pi Zero lack the Ethernet and USB hub components The Ethernet adapter is internally connected to an additional USB port In Model A, A+, and the PI Zero, the USB port is connected directly to the system on a chip SoC On the Pi 1 Model B+ and later models the USB/Ethernet chip contains a five-point USB hub, of which four ports are available, while the Pi 1 Model B only provides two On the Pi Zero, the USB port is also connected directly to the SoC, but it uses a micro USB OTG port


The Raspberry Pi 2 uses a 32-bit 900 MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor

The Broadcom BCM2835 SoC used in the first generation Raspberry Pi is somewhat equivalent to the chip used in first generation smartphones its CPU is an older ARMv6 architecture,10 which includes a 700 MHz ARM1176JZF-S processor, VideoCore IV graphics processing unit GPU,11 and RAM It has a level 1 L1 cache of 16 KB and a level 2 L2 cache of 128 KB The level 2 cache is used primarily by the GPU The SoC is stacked underneath the RAM chip, so only its edge is visible

The Raspberry Pi 2 uses a Broadcom BCM2836 SoC with a 900 MHz 32-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor as do many current smartphones, with 256 KB shared L2 cache12

The Raspberry Pi 3 uses a Broadcom BCM2837 SoC with a 12 GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor, with 512 KB shared L2 cache13


While operating at 700 MHz by default, the first generation Raspberry Pi provided a real-world performance roughly equivalent to 0041 GFLOPS1415 On the CPU level the performance is similar to a 300 MHz Pentium II of 1997–99 The GPU provides 1 Gpixel/s or 15 Gtexel/s of graphics processing or 24 GFLOPS of general purpose computing performance The graphical capabilities of the Raspberry Pi are roughly equivalent to the performance of the Xbox of 2001

The LINPACK single node compute benchmark results in a mean single precision performance of 0065 GFLOPS and a mean double precision performance of 0041 GFLOPS for one Raspberry Pi Model-B board16 A cluster of 64 Raspberry Pi Model B computers, labeled "Iridis-pi", achieved a LINPACK HPL suite result of 114 GFLOPS n=10240 at 216 watts for c US$400016

Raspberry Pi 2 includes a quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU running at 900 MHz and 1 GB RAM It is described as 4–6 times more powerful than its predecessor The GPU is identical to the original12 In parallelized benchmarks, the Raspberry Pi 2 could be up to 14 times faster than a Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+17

The Raspberry Pi 3, with a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor, is described as 10 times the performance of a Raspberry Pi 113 This was suggested to be highly dependent upon task threading and instruction set use Benchmarks showed the Raspberry Pi 3 to be approximately 80% faster than the Raspberry Pi 2 in parallelized tasks18


The CPU chips of the first and second generation Raspberry Pi board did not require cooling, such as a heat sink, unless the chip was overclocked, but the Raspberry Pi 2 SoC may heat more than usual under overclockingcitation needed

Most Raspberry Pi chips could be overclocked to 800 MHz, and some to 1000 MHz There are reports the Raspberry Pi 2 can be similarly overclocked, in extreme cases, even to 1500 MHz discarding all safety features and over-voltage limitations In the Raspbian Linux distro the overclocking options on boot can be done by a software command running "sudo raspi-config" without voiding the warranty19 In those cases the Pi automatically shuts the overclocking down if the chip reaches 85 °C 185 °F, but it is possible to override automatic over-voltage and overclocking settings voiding the warranty; an appropriately sized heatsink is needed to protect the chip from serious overheating

Newer versions of the firmware contain the option to choose between five overclock "turbo" presets that when used, attempt to maximize the performance of the SoC without impairing the lifetime of the board This is done by monitoring the core temperature of the chip, the CPU load, and dynamically adjusting clock speeds and the core voltage When the demand is low on the CPU or it is running too hot the performance is throttled, but if the CPU has much to do and the chip's temperature is acceptable, performance is temporarily increased with clock speeds of up to 1 GHz depending on the individual board and on which of the turbo settings is used

The seven overclock presets are:

  • none; 700 MHz ARM, 250 MHz core, 400 MHz SDRAM, 0 overvolt,
  • modest; 800 MHz ARM, 250 MHz core, 400 MHz SDRAM, 0 overvolt,
  • medium; 900 MHz ARM, 250 MHz core, 450 MHz SDRAM, 2 overvolt,
  • high; 950 MHz ARM, 250 MHz core, 450 MHz SDRAM, 6 overvolt,
  • turbo; 1000 MHz ARM, 500 MHz core, 600 MHz SDRAM, 6 overvolt,
  • Pi2; 1000 MHz ARM, 500 MHz core, 500 MHz SDRAM, 2 overvolt,
  • Pi3; 1100 MHz ARM, 550 MHz core, 500 MHz SDRAM, 6 overvolt In system information CPU speed will appear as 1200 MHz When in idle speed lowers to 600 MHz2021

In the highest turbo preset the SDRAM clock was originally 500 MHz, but this was later changed to 600 MHz because 500 MHz sometimes causes SD card corruption Simultaneously in high mode the core clock speed was lowered from 450 to 250 MHz, and in medium mode from 333 to 250 MHz

The Raspberry Pi Zero runs at 1 GHz


On the older beta Model B boards, 128 MB was allocated by default to the GPU, leaving 128 MB for the CPU22 On the first 256 MB release Model B and Model A, three different splits were possible The default split was 192 MB RAM for CPU, which should be sufficient for standalone 1080p video decoding, or for simple 3D, but probably not for both together 224 MB was for Linux only, with only a 1080p framebuffer, and was likely to fail for any video or 3D 128 MB was for heavy 3D, possibly also with video decoding eg XBMC23 Comparatively the Nokia 701 uses 128 MB for the Broadcom VideoCore IV24 For the new Model B with 512 MB RAM initially there were new standard memory split files released arm256_startelf, arm384_startelf, arm496_startelf for 256 MB, 384 MB and 496 MB CPU RAM and 256 MB, 128 MB and 16 MB video RAM But a week or so later the RPF released a new version of startelf that could read a new entry in configtxt gpu_mem=xx and could dynamically assign an amount of RAM from 16 to 256 MB in 8 MB steps to the GPU, so the older method of memory splits became obsolete, and a single startelf worked the same for 256 and 512 MB Raspberry Pis25

The Raspberry Pi 2 and the Raspberry Pi 3 have 1 GB of RAM2627 The Raspberry Pi Zero has 512 MB of RAM


The Model A, A+ and Pi Zero have no Ethernet circuitry and are commonly connected to a network using an external user-supplied USB Ethernet or Wi-Fi adapter On the Model B and B+ the Ethernet port is provided by a built-in USB Ethernet adapter using the SMSC LAN9514 chip28 The Raspberry Pi 3 is equipped with 24 GHz WiFi 80211n 150 Mbit/s and Bluetooth 41 24 Mbit/s in addition to the 10/100 Ethernet port


The current Model B boards incorporate four USB ports for connecting peripherals

The Raspberry Pi may be operated with any generic USB computer keyboard and mouse29


The early Raspberry Pi 1 Model A, with an HDMI port and a standard RCA composite video port for older displays

The video controller can emit standard modern TV resolutions, such as HD and Full HD, and higher or lower monitor resolutions and older standard CRT TV resolutions As shipped ie, without custom overclocking it can emit these: 640×350 EGA; 640×480 VGA; 800×600 SVGA; 1024×768 XGA; 1280×720 720p HDTV; 1280×768 WXGA variant; 1280×800 WXGA variant; 1280×1024 SXGA; 1366×768 WXGA variant; 1400×1050 SXGA+; 1600×1200 UXGA; 1680×1050 WXGA+; 1920×1080 1080p HDTV; 1920×1200 WUXGA30

Higher resolutions, such as, up to 2048×1152, may work3132 or even 3840×2160 at 15 Hz too low a framerate for convincing video33 Note also that allowing the highest resolutions does not imply that the GPU can decode video formats at those; in fact, the Pis are known to not work reliably for H265 at those high resolution, at least, commonly used for very high resolutions most formats, commonly used, up to full HD, do work

Although the Raspberry Pi 3 does not have H265 decoding hardware, the CPU is more powerful than its predecessors, potentially fast enough to decode H265-encoded videos in software34 The GPU in the RPi 3 runs at higher clock frequencies of 300 MHz or 400 MHz than previous versions which run at 250 MHz35

The Raspberry Pis can also generate 576i and 480i composite video signals, as used on old-style CRT TV screens through standard connectors – either RCA or 35 mm phone connector depending on models The television signal standards supported are PAL-BGHID, PAL-M, PAL-N, NTSC and NTSC-J36

Real-time clockedit

The Raspberry Pi does not have a built-in real-time clock, and does not "know" the time of day As a workaround, a program running on the Raspberry Pi can get the time from a network time server or user input at boot time, thus knowing the time while powered on

A real-time hardware clock with battery backup, such as the DS1307, which is fully binary coded, may be added often via the I²C interface

Driver APIsedit

See also: VideoCore § Linux support Scheme of the implemented APIs: OpenMAX, OpenGL ES and OpenVG

Raspberry Pi can use a VideoCore IV GPU via a binary blob, which is loaded into the GPU at boot time from the SD-card, and additional software, that initially was closed source125 This part of the driver code was later released126 However, much of the actual driver work is done using the closed source GPU code Application software use calls to closed source run-time libraries OpenMax, OpenGL ES or OpenVG which in turn calls an open source driver inside the Linux kernel, which then calls the closed source VideoCore IV GPU driver code The API of the kernel driver is specific for these closed libraries Video applications use OpenMAX, 3D applications use OpenGL ES and 2D applications use OpenVG which both in turn use EGL OpenMAX and EGL use the open source kernel driver in turn127


The official firmware is a freely redistributable128 binary blob, that is closed-source98 A minimal open source firmware is also available129

Reception and useedit

Technology writer Glyn Moody described the project in May 2011 as a "potential BBC Micro 20", not by replacing PC compatible machines but by supplementing them144 In March 2012 Stephen Pritchard echoed the BBC Micro successor sentiment in ITPRO145 Alex Hope, co-author of the Next Gen report, is hopeful that the computer will engage children with the excitement of programming146 Co-author Ian Livingstone suggested that the BBC could be involved in building support for the device, possibly branding it as the BBC Nano147 Chris Williams, writing in The Register sees the inclusion of programming languages such as Kids Ruby, Scratch and BASIC as a "good start" to equip kids with the skills needed in the future – although it remains to be seen how effective their use will be148 The Centre for Computing History strongly supports the Raspberry Pi project, feeling that it could "usher in a new era"149 Before release, the board was showcased by ARM's CEO Warren East at an event in Cambridge outlining Google's ideas to improve UK science and technology education150

Harry Fairhead, however, suggests that more emphasis should be put on improving the educational software available on existing hardware, using tools such as Google App Inventor to return programming to schools, rather than adding new hardware choices151 Simon Rockman, writing in a ZDNet blog, was of the opinion that teens will have "better things to do", despite what happened in the 1980s152

In October 2012, the Raspberry Pi won T3's Innovation of the Year award,153 and futurist Mark Pesce cited a borrowed Raspberry Pi as the inspiration for his ambient device project MooresCloud154 In October 2012, the British Computer Society reacted to the announcement of enhanced specifications by stating, "it's definitely something we'll want to sink our teeth into"155

In February 2015, a switched-mode power supply chip, designated U16, of the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B version 11 the initially released version was found to be vulnerable to flashes of light,156 particularly the light from xenon camera flashes and green157 and red laser pointers However, other bright lights, particularly ones that are on continuously, were found to have no effect The symptom was the Raspberry Pi 2 spontaneously rebooting or turning off when these lights were flashed at the chip Initially, some users and commenters suspected that the electromagnetic pulse EMP from the xenon flash tube was causing the problem by interfering with the computer's digital circuitry, but this was ruled out by tests where the light was either blocked by a card or aimed at the other side of the Raspberry Pi 2, both of which did not cause a problem The problem was narrowed down to the U16 chip by covering first the system on a chip main processor and then U16 with Blu-Tack an opaque poster mounting compound Light being the sole culprit, instead of EMP, was further confirmed by the laser pointer tests,157 where it was also found that less opaque covering was needed to shield against the laser pointers than to shield against the xenon flashes156 The U16 chip seems to be bare silicon without a plastic cover ie a chip-scale package or wafer-level package, which would, if present, block the light Unofficial workarounds include covering U16 with opaque material such as electrical tape,156157 lacquer, poster mounting compound, or even balled-up bread156, putting the Raspberry Pi 2 in a case,157 and avoiding taking photos of the top side of the board with a xenon flash This issue was not caught before the release of the Raspberry Pi 2 because while commercial electronic devices are routinely subjected to tests of susceptibility to radio interference, it is not standard or common practice to test their susceptibility to optical interference156


The Raspberry Pi community was described by Jamie Ayre of FLOSS software company AdaCore as one of the most exciting parts of the project158 Community blogger Russell Davis said that the community strength allows the Foundation to concentrate on documentation and teaching158 The community developed a fanzine around the platform called The MagPi159 which in 2015, was handed over to the Raspberry Pi Foundation by its volunteers to be continued in-house160 A series of community Raspberry Jam events have been held across the UK and around the world161

Use in educationedit

As of January 2012update, enquiries about the board in the United Kingdom have been received from schools in both the state and private sectors, with around five times as much interest from the latter It is hoped that businesses will sponsor purchases for less advantaged schools162 The CEO of Premier Farnell said that the government of a country in the Middle East has expressed interest in providing a board to every schoolgirl, in order to enhance her employment prospects163164

In 2014, the Raspberry Pi Foundation hired a number of its community members including ex-teachers and software developers to launch a set of free learning resources for its website165 The resources are freely licensed under Creative Commons, and contributions and collaborations are encouraged on social coding platform GitHub

The Foundation also started a teacher training course called Picademy with the aim of helping teachers prepare for teaching the new computing curriculum using the Raspberry Pi in the classroom166 The continued professional development course is provided free for teachers and is run by the Foundation's education team

Use in home automationedit

There are a number of developers and applications that are leveraging the Raspberry Pi for home automation These programmers are making an effort to modify the Raspberry Pi into a cost affordable solution in energy monitoring and power consumption Because of the relatively low cost of the Raspberry Pi, this has become a popular and economical solution to the more expensive commercial alternatives167

Use in commercial productsedit

OTTO is a digital camera created by Next Thing Co It incorporates a Raspberry Pi Compute Module It was successfully crowd-funded in a May 2014 Kickstarter campaign168

Slice is a digital media player which also uses a Compute Module as its heart It was crowd-funded in an August 2014 Kickstarter campaign The software running on Slice is based on Kodi169

Astro Piedit

A project was launched in December 2014 at an event held by the UK Space Agency The Astro Pi competition was officially opened in January and was opened to all primary and secondary school aged children who were residents of the United Kingdom During his mission, British ESA Astronaut Tim Peake plans to deploy the computers on board the International Space Station He will then load up the winning code while in orbit, collect the data generated and then send this to Earth where it will be distributed to the winning teams The themes of Spacecraft Sensors, Satellite Imaging, Space Measurements, Data Fusion and Space Radiation were devised to stimulate creative and scientific thinking

The organisations involved in the Astro Pi competition include the UK Space Agency, UKspace, Raspberry Pi, ESERO-UK and ESA


An early alpha-test board in operation using different layout from later beta and production boards

In 2006, early concepts of the Raspberry Pi were based on the Atmel ATmega644 microcontroller Its schematics and PCB layout are publicly available170 Foundation trustee Eben Upton assembled a group of teachers, academics and computer enthusiasts to devise a computer to inspire children162 The computer is inspired by Acorn's BBC Micro of 1981171172 The Model A, Model B and Model B+ names are references to the original models of the British educational BBC Micro computer, developed by Acorn Computers148 The first ARM prototype version of the computer was mounted in a package the same size as a USB memory stick173 It had a USB port on one end and an HDMI port on the other

The Foundation's goal was to offer two versions, priced at US$25 and 35 They started accepting orders for the higher priced Model B on 29 February 2012,174 the lower cost Model A on 4 February 2013175 and the even lower cost US$20 A+ on 10 November 201443 On 26 November 2015, the cheapest Raspberry PI yet, the Raspberry PI Zero, was launched at US$5 or £4176


  • July 2011 2011-07: Trustee Eben Upton publicly approached the RISC OS Open community in July 2011 to enquire about assistance with a port177 Adrian Lees at Broadcom has since worked on the port,178179 with his work being cited in a discussion regarding the graphics drivers180 This port is now included in NOOBS
  • August 2011 – 50 alpha boards are manufactured These boards were functionally identical to the planned Model B,181 but they were physically larger to accommodate debug headers Demonstrations of the board showed it running the LXDE desktop on Debian, Quake 3 at 1080p,182 and Full HD MPEG-4 video over HDMI183
  • October 2011 – A version of RISC OS 5 was demonstrated in public, and following a year of development the port was released for general consumption in November 2012184185186187
  • December 2011 – Twenty-five Model B Beta boards were assembled and tested188 from one hundred unpopulated PCBs189 The component layout of the Beta boards was the same as on production boards A single error was discovered in the board design where some pins on the CPU were not held high; it was fixed for the first production run190 The Beta boards were demonstrated booting Linux, playing a 1080p movie trailer and the Rightware Samurai OpenGL ES benchmark191
  • Early 2012 – During the first week of the year, the first 10 boards were put up for auction on eBay192193 One was bought anonymously and donated to the museum at The Centre for Computing History in Cambridge, England149194 The ten boards with a total retail price of £220 together raised over £16,000,195 with the last to be auctioned, serial number No 01, raising £3,500196 In advance of the anticipated launch at the end of February 2012, the Foundation's servers struggled to cope with the load placed by watchers repeatedly refreshing their browsers197


  • 19 February 2012 – The first proof of concept SD card image that could be loaded onto an SD card to produce a preliminary operating system is released The image was based on Debian 60 Squeeze, with the LXDE desktop and the Midori browser, plus various programming tools The image also runs on QEMU allowing the Raspberry Pi to be emulated on various other platforms198199
  • 29 February 2012 – Initial sales commence 29 February 2012200 at 06:00 UTC; At the same time, it was announced that the model A, originally to have had 128 MB of RAM, was to be upgraded to 256 MB before release174 The Foundation's website also announced: "Six years after the project's inception, we're nearly at the end of our first run of development – although it's just the beginning of the Raspberry Pi story"201 The web-shops of the two licensed manufacturers selling Raspberry Pi's within the United Kingdom, Premier Farnell and RS Components, had their websites stalled by heavy web traffic immediately after the launch RS Components briefly going down completely202203 Unconfirmed reports suggested that there were over two million expressions of interest or pre-orders204 The official Raspberry Pi Twitter account reported that Premier Farnell sold out within a few minutes of the initial launch, while RS Components took over 100,000 pre orders on day one174 Manufacturers were reported in March 2012 to be taking a "healthy number" of pre-orders158
  • March 2012 – Shipping delays for the first batch were announced in March 2012, as the result of installation of an incorrect Ethernet port,205206 but the Foundation expected that manufacturing quantities of future batches could be increased with little difficulty if required207 "We have ensured we can get them the Ethernet connectors with magnetics in large numbers and Premier Farnell and RS Components the two distributors have been fantastic at helping to source components," Upton said The first batch of 10,000 boards was manufactured in Taiwan and China208209
  • 8 March 2012 – Release Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix, the recommended Linux distribution,210 developed at Seneca College in Canada211
  • March 2012 – The Debian port is initiated by Mike Thompson, former CTO of Atomz The effort was largely carried out by Thompson and Peter Green, a volunteer Debian developer, with some support from the Foundation, who tested the resulting binaries that the two produced during the early stages neither Thompson nor Green had physical access to the hardware, as boards were not widely accessible at the time due to demand212 While the preliminary proof of concept image distributed by the Foundation before launch was also Debian-based, it differed from Thompson and Green's Raspbian effort in a couple of ways The POC image was based on then-stable Debian Squeeze, while Raspbian aimed to track then-upcoming Debian Wheezy packages199 Aside from the updated packages that would come with the new release, Wheezy was also set to introduce the armhf architecture,213 which became the raison d'être for the Raspbian effort The Squeeze-based POC image was limited to the armel architecture, which was, at the time of Squeeze's release, the latest attempt by the Debian project to have Debian run on the newest ARM embedded-application binary interface EABI214 The armhf architecture in Wheezy intended to make Debian run on the ARM VFP hardware floating-point unit, while armel was limited to emulating floating point operations in software215216 Since the Raspberry Pi included a VFP, being able to make use of the hardware unit would result in performance gains and reduced power use for floating point operations212 The armhf effort in mainline Debian, however, was orthogonal to the work surrounding the Pi and only intended to allow Debian to run on ARMv7 at a minimum, which would mean the Pi, an ARMv6 device, would not benefit213 As a result, Thompson and Green set out to build the 19,000 Debian packages for the device using a custom build cluster212
