RPi B+ and I2S DACs works

Posted by tjaekel Jul 24, 2014
RPi B+ works with I2S DACs, if: four jumper wires used (different GPIO pins now) AND: a Rasbian Linux Kernel Patch done (changed pinmux) I did the patch (change three bytes in a kernel module) - works: Raspberry Pi B+ and RPi-DAC   If DAC needs I2C for control - then it needs more effort to modify kernel (or wait for updated release, even the most recent release June 2014 does not support yet). Without the Kernel Patch and trying to use I2S - RPi - the B+ will hang. ...
I recently got my new Raspberry Pi Model B+ from Element 14 and knew immediately what I wanted to do with it. The added USB ports plus the higher current rating makes this Pi the perfect home server. No longer do you need an externally powered USB hub, you can simply hook a USB hard drive directly to your Pi! In addition, I will have the ability to hook up a BlueTooth USB and/or ZigBee USB explorer to create my very own internet of things (not covered in this blog).   This blog will teach y ...
Everything is Awesome  If you need an introduction to the B+ then biglesp has a blog which goes into the B+ in detail along with elecia whom helps to introduce those new to Raspberry Pi to get started with one; if you require a more technical list of the changes between the Raspberry Pi boards then you should look no further than the comparison chart.   Since its initial release the Pi has invoked inspiration in education, amongst programmers, and in hackers and makers over the years ...
My Raspberry Pi B+ arrived yesterday so I thought I'd take a few photos of both the B+ and the changes but also how existing boars do do not fit the B+ design!   PI+  Full Frontal   B+ Network (now with Blinkin' Lights) and the all important 4 USB ports   New 4 port USB Variant of the original 2 port device, Composite Phono has gone to be replaced with a 4 pole AV combo on the other side   The Rear has been tided up and the full sized SDcard is replaced with a ...

Meet the Raspberry Pi B+

Posted by biglesp Jul 14, 2014
  The Raspberry Pi is now two years old and in it's lifetime it has found itself deep under the sea, controlling complex machinery and floating in space. The initial goal of the project, to educate children in Computer Science has revolutionised the education landscape with children and adults learning more about Computing and Electronics.   Revisions Since it's initial launch there have been many Models of the Raspberry Pi   Model RAM CPU GPIO USB Storage Ethernet ...

Welcome to the B+

Posted by elecia Jul 14, 2014
Element14 sent me a new Raspberry Pi B+ board to evaluate. The verdict is easy: I don’t know why it took me so long to pick one of these up, I was completely charmed. The B+ has the same processor, clock speed, and RAM (512MB) so the huge community’s existing programs will run without update. It has the same camera and display connectors so your existing accessories will be compatible. Oh, and it has the same price. It has two additional USB ports (four in total) so you may do awa ...
