Raspberry Pi - ARM with Linux Nano Computer

Raspberry Pi is a Miniature Computer that can Interface with a Display Device like TV and a keyboard.

Raspberry Pi a teeny weeny Computer

Model A has been redesigned to have 256Mb RAM, one USB port and no Ethernet (network connection). Model B has 256Mb RAM, 2 USB port and an Ethernet port.

The Raspberry Pi measures 85.60mm x 53.98mm x 17mm, with a little overlap for the SD card and connectors which project over the edges. It weighs 45g.

Raspberry Pi a teeny weeny Computer

The SoC is a Broadcom BCM2835. This contains an ARM1176JZFS, with floating point, running at 700Mhz, and a Videocore 4 GPU. The GPU is capable of BluRay quality playback, using H.264 at 40MBits/s. It has a fast 3D core accessed using the supplied OpenGL ES2.0 and OpenVG libraries.
Overall real world performance is something like a 300MHz Pentium 2, only with much, much swankier graphics.

There is composite and HDMI out on the board, so you can hook it up to an old analogue TV, to a digital TV or to a DVI monitor. No VGA support.

BeagleBot - Beagle powered robot

"For measuring distances I chose to use SRF08. It is an ultrasonic ranger with I2C bus and measure range from 3 cm to 6 m. The sensor has a beam width of 55 degrees (-6 dB points) and when mounted on top of one of the servos it can be used for covering well over 180 degrees."

BeagleBot - Beagle powered robot - A small experimental robot with Beagle Board as it's heart.

Servo System -Double Hitec HS-422 servos mounted on a special two axis brackets. - 5 pcs of normal RC servos with 50 Hz PWM control. ATMega16 at the expansion board creates the PWM for all of the servos and provides an I2C control interface for them. User space application running on beagle board can thus control the servos just sending only a simple I2C message.
