enebular recommends Raspberry Pi as the operating environment for enebular-agent and agent execution environment. This is because it is a small computer that is easy to obtain and easy to start IoT. We would like to introduce what Raspberry Pi is, starting with its history.
History of the Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi is an innovative device known as a single-board computer that is widely used in a variety of applications. Its history dates back to 2009, when the Raspberry Pi Foundation was established in the United Kingdom. The purpose of the foundation is to promote the learning of basic computer science in schools.
In 2012, the first Raspberry Pi was released to an unexpectedly large response. The tiny device had incredible computing power, yet its low price made it an affordable computer for many people. Since then, new models of the Raspberry Pi have been introduced in rapid succession, further advancing the Raspberry Pi.
Why Raspberry Pi is gaining attention in the industrial sector
Raspberry Pi is gaining attention in the industrial sector because of its low cost. This is due to the low cost of the Raspberry Pi, which is very affordable and can be used for small projects or R&D with budget constraints. In addition, the Raspberry Pi has an abundance of GPIO pins and USB ports, making it easy to combine with a wide variety of sensors and devices. This enables applications such as industrial control and automation.
In addition, Raspberry Pi is an easy-to-use, open-source platform that is widely supported. The community shares information and projects and includes a wide range of users, from beginners to experts. This allows for a wide variety of practical projects to be developed while sharing knowledge and ideas.
Hardware Using Raspberry Pi
Raspberry Pi is widely used in actual hardware development. Using the compact module for integration into devices, you can build your own boards with high availability, environmental resistance, etc., while benefiting from low power consumption and small size. This allows them to be used in industrial IoT systems and other applications.
For example, the following are well-known products developed using Raspberry Pi
reTerminal is an industrial IoT device developed by Seeed Technology, based on the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4, with a specially designed case and a 5-inch touch panel. You can start developing IoT applications as soon as you turn on the power.
The reTerminal DM is a 10.1″ industrial touch panel developed by Seeed Technology, based on the Raspberry Pi CM4 and offering rich interfaces such as RS485/232 port, CAN bus and Ethernet. It has a robust design with a dustproof and waterproof front panel, a die-cast aluminum frame, and a wide operating temperature range of -10°C to 50°C. Native support for Node-RED allows the user to leverage the software assets of the Raspberry Pi.
CM4Stack is a development board based on the Raspberry Pi CM4 developed by M5Stack. Despite its small size, it is equipped with a 2.0″ touch screen and offers a variety of interfaces. Its thermal management design with active cooling fans and heat sinks ensures stable operation over long periods of time, and its DIN-rail mountable case makes it suitable for industrial applications.
enebular to make better use of Raspberry Pi
