It has been nearly eight months since the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B launched. And I get to know Raspberry Pi board gradually. The coming of Pi 3 is so exciting. The Raspberry Pi enthusiast has already carried out some cool projects with Pi 3 board, how about you? Text Below is the information I collect about Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.

1. Introduction about Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

Text describe: In depth look of Pi 3 from Instructables.

The Raspberry Pi 3 is here. The latest version of the credit card-sized computer comes a whole year after the launch of its predecessor, the Raspberry Pi 2 and four years after the launch of the original Raspberry Pi, has its own set of upgrades. Here’s the highlights: it’s faster, it has the exact same form-factor, and yes, it has wireless on it.

Technical Specifications:

  • Processor: 1.2GHz Quad Core BCM2837 ARMv8 64bit Processor
  • Connectivity: Built-in WiFi (802.11B/G/N) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)

2. Awesome Projects with Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

Windows10 + Pi3

This project showcases how to use Windows 10 IoT Core on a Raspberry Pi 3 to spin a motor by providing input to a motor controller and then measuring the speed of the spinning motor using a digital encoder. We use the digital encoder feedback in a PID loop to control the speed of the motor and by doing this, we created a closed loop control system!In addition, it demonstrates the Windows 10 IoT Core’s capabilities to provide and interact with a Remote UI and sensors.

So, after evaluating what options do I have, I took the decision of installing Raspbian OS and write the app in node.js, because I’ve seen that I have all that I need from the support libraries point of view.

In order to be easy for everyone who reads this project tutorial to implement it, I will take it step by step but if you think that any of this step doesn’t apply to you, you can skip it .


3. Pi3=PC

I learnt a lot from Nick Health about the Pi3 PC, if you expect to diy a pc with pi3, his article will be very helpful.

Five tips to make the most use of pi3 as a pc.

  • Download Chromium
  • Use a script blocker
  • Use Chromium for Google Apps
  • Use LibreOffice if you can
  • Don’t try to do too much at once
