Originally designed as a tool for tinkerers and those wanting to learn more about computers, the device has become an essential tool for industrial applications
In this day and age where tons of IoT devices are available for prototyping and building innovative IoT solutions, numerous ingenious ideas with respect to everyday applications are emerging from experienced developers to ordinary hobbyists.
One such IoT device is the newly released Raspberry Pi 4 (an upgrade of the previous Raspberry Pi 3). Packed with faster processing speed, stunning graphics driver, Bluetooth 5.0 and other upgraded features, this device is surely worth your money.
- Faster processing with Quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5 Ghz.
- Multiple memory models in 1 GB, 2 GB, or 4 GB RAM options with LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM.
- 2 micro HDMI ports, both able to output 4K video (even in dual monitor configuration).
- 2x USB 3 ports for higher speed connection to peripherals and 2x USB 2 ports.
- The power connector for the board has been changed from micro-USB to a USB-C connector.
So what all can it be used for?
Well…for nearly everything digital. But the real fun lies in getting to build your own desktop computer with it, whether to edit documents, browse the web or gaming. And all this at a performance of a usual desktop but at one-fourth of its cost.
Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton says that in addition to being a device for learning about computing, Raspberry Pi 4 is also much more suitable than its predecessors for use as a general-purpose classroom computer.
Raspberry Pi 4 is now available in 3 memory models: 1GB (US$ 35), 2GB (US$ 45) and 4GB (US$ 55).
