Re: Power supply for the Ra-P

Ok, I found some power supplies you can use for the R-Pi, reasonably priced:

Re: GPIO development samples

Check out this URL: http://forum.sparkfun.com/view.....hp?p=52483. It shows an example of the memory-mapped-IO for ARM processors. As this is very platform depended, the R-Pi folks need to publish some details later....

Hi Jamesh, which WIFI stick are you testing? One with a Prism54 chipset?

Re: Low cost monitor

I think it would be a great idea to have a list with (cheap) hardware that can be used on R-Pi projects. I presume most people have the same demands, e.g. monitor, keyboard etc

Re: Wake-on-LAN (WOL)

<r>I cannot find anything in the forums about the fact that suspend mode is not supported. Abishur's comment only refers to Liz comment about having only power on OR power off. The problem is that the power supply doesn't support a real suspend mode. It might be that the R-Pi can be in some power sa...

Re: Wake-on-LAN (WOL)

<t>Thinking about it.... it`s also the power supply that needs to support it. With a PC with normal ATX power supply the PC is able to switch off the power (remaining just a bit of power to make it possible to switch the power back on again later). With the R-pi you only have an always on power supp...

Re: PCB Layout Suggestions

I think the PCB looks really great! I am only hoping the small 1.27mm connectors will be replaced by the normal size (2.54mm). But I can imagine that this will be hard if you want to keep the PCB small.

Re: Wake-on-LAN (WOL)

<r>I guess Datafreak means if the R-Pi can be waken up from standby/hibernation mode by using wake-on-LAN. Normally this should be supported by the chipset (LAN9512).

Re: Alpha boards update

At 7.5 volts

Full up = 2.25 watts
I guess the power supply is taking most of it? Or is a switched power supply used? Power supplies with a transformer are really bad....

Re: Ri-P as development platform?

Although cross-compiling on a X86 platform is no problem, I was wondering if the Ri-P itself can be used for development? It would make development a lot easier to test your just compiled ARM-source on your Ri-P instead of setting up QEMU to test it....
