I have a new Raspberry Pi!

The Raspberry Pi is a revolutionary computer.  Not because it’s fast, although it does okay.  It’s because the Raspberry Pi costs only $35.  For that you get an ARM based Broadcomm CPU, 256 Meg of RAM, 2 USB ports, an Ethernet port, an SD Card socket, sound and HDMI out video.  A lower cost version ($25) removes the Ethernet port and 1 of the USB ports. Pretty cool.  You can find out about the Pi at www.raspberrypi.org.

They’ve been pretty hard to get one of these devices but with the help of a kind soul across the pond, I’ve managed to get hold of one.  While the Pi organization is has various versions of Linux running on the device, I’m going to develop a Windows Embedded Compact (Windows CE) Board Support Package so that I can run WEC on the device. It should be an interesting project that I’m going to document my work here in the blog.  We’ll see how it goes…

    Hey Doug, I wondered how you’d got on with the BSP development? Was it relatively straightforward?

    I’m working on the BSP. Slow going as I have other work to do. However, I’ll be posting more on the topic soon.
