A smaller version of the Raspberry Pi computer built in the UK is driving the cost to under $25. [via]
element14 has announced the launch of the new credit card sized Raspberry Pi Model A board in Europe, selling at under $25. It uses the same 700MHz ARM1176 Broadcom BCM2835 processor but only 256MB of RAM is included as standard, there is no Ethernet connection and only one USB port, but it does use considerably less energy for battery-powered applications.

The circuit for this project is quite simple. Its purpose is to adapt the GPIO pins of the Raspberry Pi to the voltages expected by the PIC. It also provides LEDs for diagnostic purposes.

APRS (Automatic Packet Reporting System) is an amateur-radio based system for realtime communication using digital packets sent over radio links. I present here, an implementation of an APRS iGate using the Raspberry-Pi. An APRS iGate is an Internet gateway that gates packets from the radio/RF side to the APRS-IS on the Internet (and vice-versa). The APRS-IS is an Internet based network that connects APRS networks from all around the world and facilitates APRS applications (like realtime postion reporting of objects overlaid over google maps, see aprs.fi)

Hot off the heels of last month’s Raspberry Pi manufacturing deal with Sony, element14 today announced its continued partnership with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, launching an upgraded 512 MB version of the credit card-sized development board. Featuring double the RAM, the higher performance mini-computer is suited to multimedia, high-memory and mobile applications. The additional memory is also an enabler to allow the Raspberry Pi to run a future version of an Android 4.0 operating system.
The $35 Raspberry PI 512MB board is available now at element14 on a first come first served basis through its brands Newark element14 in North America, Farnell element14 in Europe, and element14 in Asia Pacific, as well as through subsidiaries CPC in the UK and MCM Electronics in the US.
Members of the element14 Community are invited to join the discussion online and share ideas and plans for the Raspberry Pi on the dedicated Raspberry Pi Group, bolstering more than 7,000 new members from across the globe. Plus, make sure to check out the revolutionary board and accompanying accessories on display at electronica in Munich, Germany on November 13-16, 2012.
The full press release is included below with additional details. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to speak with an element14 representative about the new Raspberry Pi development board and its impact on the programming revolution.

This version is much more secure and could easily be used across the internet with very few security concerns. A brief outline:
- A server program that runs on the Raspberry Pi to read variables
- A MySQL database to store the variables in
- An Apache2 served webpage to allow control of the variables

This is my first Instructable so all criticisms and comments are welcome. This will show you how to set up a simple wired web server on your Raspberry Pi, with PHP and MySql.
The Raspberry Pi is a good choice for a webserver that will not recieve too much traffic, such as a testing server, or small intranet, as it doesn;t get too hot (so is nice and quiet), and only uses around 5 Watts of power (costing £3.50 a year where I am if it’s running 24/7)

The Raspberry Pi solar data logger project is now live and is the latest version of our previous data logging systems using Arduino and Android + IOIO board projects.
The data is used on a custom reporting website onhome.briandorey.com and also on Android and iPad tablet apps.
The Raspberry Pi is used as a data processing and uploading system which pulls data from the following sensors and then uploads to a web server via HTTP GET.

LONDON – Mar. 26, 2012 – element14, the first collaborative community for design engineers and electronics enthusiasts, powered by global electronics distributor Premier Farnell [LON:PFL], has today announced its Design Flow Series webinars will be kicked off by Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton on 4 April.
In the first session Raspberry Pi fans around the world have a chance to see how simple it is to program one of the credit card sized computers. The possibilities of what can be done on a Raspberry Pi are only limited by the imagination, so to help users get up and running quickly, in this live session, Eben will talk through the simple set up procedure, how to download and install the Operating System on the SD card, run the boot up script, use the script editor and begin to create applications using the Python scripts that are pre-supplied with the software download.
