Well, I know I'm buying at least 4-6 to learn, and then teach clustering to my kids. Should be fun! Any thoughts on management? Is something like Oscar or Rocks looking like a fit for the noob like me. From my research tonight, I think Oscar will work.
Not sure. Management's going to be dependent on which cluster type you assemble.
I'm not an electrical engineer, but there's got to be a way to combine power supplies, to get a one wall wart to many r-pi's powered? That my next research path. It can't be as easy as getting a small pc power supply and splicing out the 12vs
It can be that simple- the only problem with doing that is that you're going to have fun keeping the voltage stable on the rail coming out of the switcher you'd use.
The power supply thing was bugging me before bed, I think the medical device industry has us covered. Could someone smarter than I look at these: http://www.trcelectronics.com/.....ulti.shtml
and see if they got the juice to power our berries? Goodnight!
They're FDA rateable, heavily isolated switchers. They'll work- and well. They're also expensive and vast overkill for a Bramble.
