Working with Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. It has a microprocessor, RAM, a WiFi module, Ethernet adapters and a lot more in a compact credit card sized form factor. It also has a number of GPIO pins that can be used to communicate with devices via I2C, SPI or UART.

The Raspberry Pis are widely used by makers around the world to create amazing projects ranging from fields like Robotics to Machine Learning. It has been a favourite of the community owing to its low cost and good performance.

Simuli Virtual Lab has full support for the Raspberry Pi. Select the OS you want to run on the Raspberry Pi and select the peripherals you want to use in your project and start building.

What will we learn?

  • Basics of working on an embedded system along with working on command lines.

  • Interaction with hardware such as reading digital input and output.

  • Designing the control logic to define what each component should do and in what order.

So let's start building our first project, blink, the Hello World equivalent for IoT. Here, we will program an LED connected to a GPIO pin and make it blink.
