Complete guide to NOOBS for Raspberry Pi

Complete guide to NOOBS for Raspberry Pi

In this guidance on NOOBS you will find everything you need to know to get started in the Raspberry Pi distribution launcher for beginners. NOOBS offers us the advantages of multi-boot on the Raspberry Pi, compatible with all versions. In NOOBS are all official operating systems for Raspi in a single package so you can use the one you want from a single SD memory card and without making drastic changes in it. All in a simple way and choosing the OS you want at all times according to your needs.

NOOBS stands for New Out Of Box SoftwareThe word "noobs", although you will also have noticed that it coincides with the English word "noobs", which means beginners or novices and which is used a lot in computer jargon. This double meaning is intentional, on the one hand they try to convey the purpose of the project and on the other hand its simplicity and ease of use (several operating systems of your choice, no formatting, downloading new images, installing them, etc...).


The best HATs for your Raspberry Pi

Analysis of HATs for Raspberry Pi

A HAT will remind you of the English word "hat", in fact they are just that, hats to insert into the GPIO pins of the Raspberry Pi and extend its capabilities. Kind of like the existing shields or modules for Arduino, they serve the same function. But in reality HAT is an acronym for Hardware Attached on Topi.e. hardware connected on top and acting as an add-on extending the capabilities of the Raspi.

As with Arduino, the success of the Raspberry Pi has led to many developers interested in creating add-ons for the board. These third parties have manufactured a large number of HATs such as LCDs, ADC/DACs, sensor boards, buttons, breadboards, motors, etc... And in this article we will make a compilation of the most interesting HATs that we can find on the market, with their characteristics and functionalities.


All about Raspberry Pi GPIOs

GPIO Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi GPIO pins are the great forgotten ones, but knowing how to use them opens up a world of possibilities. That's what this article is about, to open the doors of this world and introduce you to programming and the possibilities of GPIOs. In future posts we will also show you how to connect Arduino and Raspberry Pi using these pins to achieve great projects combining the power of both platforms.

Introduction to GPIOs and schematics

GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) is, as the name suggests, a general purpose I/O (Input/Output) system, i.e. a series of connections that can be used as inputs or outputs for multiple uses. These pins are included on all Raspberry Pi models, so you can make interesting projects as you would with the Arduino. ...

Analysis of the best distributions for Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi distributions

The SBC (Single Board Computer) Raspberry Pi has been a great success due to its low price and its great possibilities, both for software developers, computer science students and for hobbyists who want to use it for their own home projects. For this reason, in this article we are going to analyse the most important Raspberry Pi distributions and some interesting add-ons.

We already know about the versatility of Raspberry Pi, but with this article we are going to realise how big the Raspberry Pi community really is, let's start.

Build a cheap audiobook player with Raspberry Pi


Audiobook with Raspberry Pi

The audiobooks or audiobooksThese are editions of the books that have been voice-recorded so that the visually impaired, those who have trouble reading or anyone who wants to enjoy a moment of literature while closing their eyes peacefully lying on the sofa, can use them.

There are already many audiobooks of the most important titles in literature, but if you want to listen to any other technical or non-technical book, you can listen to them, you can pass it to voice with some applications such as TextAloud (Loquendo) for Windows or Linux alternatives such as eSpeak, capable of converting any text to speech and storing it in an mp3 file. Or use a routine method, read the text and record it with a microphone. ...
