• Since the first Raspberry Pi release, these small board computers (SBCs) only supported booting from SD card or Micro SD card until the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B release. That opened a whole new world of possibilities that you could do with the Raspberry. But, unfortunately, not many people are aware of this feature or even utilizing it.

  • ScummVM is a prevalent word among gamers preferring to Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion Virtual Machine. The software contains custom-coded remakes of several game engines. Initially, the utility was designed to play LucasArts Adventure games that use the SCUMM system. However, with upgrades made to the system, the software supports various non-SCumm games companies, such as The Revolution Software and Adventure Soft.

  • The username and password for Raspberry Pi OS are fundamental aspects to note. They allow you access to your Raspberry Pi, making it impossible to access your Pi without them. A user uses the username and password every time they want to connect to their Raspberry Pi, whether by physically accessing it or connecting remotely over SSH.

  • Some, if not all, people would love to change the I2C speed in their Raspberry Pi to increase their sensor reads or various other applications’ speed. This claims to be specifically essential when using the I2C interface as it helps control the display module. Actually, changing the default I2C bus speed on the Raspberry Pi can help improve the performance of some projects on your machine. However, in the latest versions of Raspbian, this change must be made using a Device Tree parameter.

  • Raspberry Pi is a sequence of small single-board computers developed in the UK by the official Raspberry Pi Foundation association with Broadcom. The computer initially leaned towards the promotion of basic teaching of computer science in schools and developing nations. Interestingly, the original model became more famous than anticipated, selling outside its target market to diverse uses such as robotics. The PC is used in many different areas like weather monitoring, webserver, Wi-Fi extender, game emulator, and many more because of its low cost, open design, and modularity.

  • Since Raspberry Pi 3 in 2016 release, the Raspberry Pi foundation included support for built-in Bluetooth connectivity in all the following Raspberry releases. That came as a relief to users who wanted to utilize the Bluetooth feature to connect wireless peripherals like headsets, other PCs, game controllers that support Bluetooth connectivity and carry out Bluetooth-related projects.

  • Choosing out the right display and screens for your Raspberry Pi projects can make all the difference. But, with the contrasting types and sizes for resistive touch displays, TFT displays, HDMI displays, e-ink displays, and displays with cool RGB matrices, many find it challenging to choose the best monitor for their Raspberry Pi.

  • The primary storage medium for a Raspberry Pi is an SD card. Running out of space while working on your projects is possible and may hinder/ limit your operations. The Raspbian image is a downloadable ISO file whose primary purpose is to boot the Raspberry Pi onto an APC.

  • The Raspberry Pi comes with a 1-wire Interface bus used to connect sensor modules when working on IoT projects. For example, one such sensor is the DS18B20 used to measure temperature. 1-wire interface is basically a single wire which can carry out multiple functions, including low-speed data transfer, power over a single conductor, and signaling. Practically, the Raspberry Pi supports a 1-wire interface on any GPIO pin; however, the default pin is GPIO 4.
