Many people think of Linux as a computer operating system, running on users' desktops and powering servers. But Linux can also be found inside many consumer electronics devices. Whether they're the brains of a cell phone, cable box, or exercise bike, embedded Linux systems blur the distinction between computer and device. Many makers love microcontroller platforms such as Arduino, but as the complexity increases in their projects, they need more power for applications, such as computer vision. The BeagleBone is an embedded Linux board for makers. It's got built-in networking, many inputs and outputs, and a fast processor to handle demanding tasks. This book introduces you to both the original BeagleBone and the new BeagleBone Black and gets you started with projects that take advantage of the board's processing power and its ability to interface with the outside world.

BeagleBone Black is a low-cost, open hardware computer uniquely suited to interact with sensors and actuators directly and over the Web. Introduced in April 2013 by BeagleBoard.org, a community of developers first established in early 2008, BeagleBone Black is used frequently to build vision-enabled robots, home automation systems, artistic lighting systems, and countless other do-it-yourself and professional projects. BeagleBone variants include the original BeagleBone and the newer BeagleBone Black, both hosting a powerful 32-bit, super-scalar ARM Cortex A8 processor capable of running numerous mobile and desktop-capable operating systems, typically variants of Linux including Debian, Android, and Ubuntu. Yet, BeagleBone is small enough to fit in a small mint tin box. The "Bone" may be used in a wide variety of projects from middle school science fair projects to senior design projects to first prototypes of very complex systems. Novice users may access the power of the Bone through the user-friendly BoneScript software, experienced through a Web browser in most major operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, or the Linux operating systems. Seasoned users may take full advantage of the Bone's power using the underlying Linux-based operating system, a host of feature extension boards (Capes) and a wide variety of Linux community open source libraries. This book provides an introduction to this powerful computer and has been designed for a wide variety of users including the first time novice through the seasoned embedded system design professional. The book contains background theory on system operation coupled with many well-documented, illustrative examples. Examples for novice users are centered on motivational, fun robot projects while advanced projects follow the theme of assistive technology and image-processing applications.

Der preiswerte Single-Board-Computer Raspberry Pi hat innerhalb kürzester Zeit die Herzen der Bastler und IT-Tüftler erobert. Das Board verfügt über zahlreiche Anschlussmöglickeiten, die einem großen PC in nichts nachstehen. Dass Linux als Betriebssystem gewählt wurde, trägt sicherlich zur großen Beliebtheit dieses kleinen Technikwunders bei und erlaubt zahlreiche Anwendungsmöglichkeiten, die zuvor mit einem Mikrocontroller nicht möglich waren. Elektronisches Grundwissen, wann man es braucht. Der Erfolgsautor Erik Bartmann verbindet auch in seinem neuesten Buch Die elektronische Welt mit Raspberry Pi entdecken die faszinierende Mikrocontroller-Welt mit elektronischen Grundlagenthemen. So lernt der Leser quasi spielerisch die physikalischen Grundlagen der Elektronik – und zwar genau an der Stelle, an der er sie braucht. Fünf Bücher in einem großen Werk. Der Autor hat gleich fünf Bücher in einem geschrieben: Es ist eine ausführliche Einführung in den Single-Board-Computer Raspberry Pi mit allen denkbaren Anschluss- und Erweiterungsmöglichkeiten; es ist gleichzeitig eine Einführung in die Elektronikgrundlagen. Um den Raspberry Pi selbst programmieren zu können, führt der Autor den Leser direkt in zwei Programmiersprachen ein: in Python und in C. Dabei setzt er keine Programmierkenntnisse voraus, sondern führt strukturiert in die Welt der Programmbefehle ein, und zwar von der geeignete Programmierumgebung über die Verwendung von Modulen bis hin zu eigenen, auf dem Raspberry Pi lauffähigen Programmen. Und wer noch nicht so firm in Linux ist, bekommt vom Autor eine Einführung in das Betriebssystem spendiert. Das Herz des Buches sind jedoch die fast 30 Elektronikprojekte, die der Autor mit zahlreichen vierfarbigen Abbildungen und Fotos, Schaltplänen und unzähligen wertvollen Insider-Tipps detailliert darstellt. Den Raspberry Pi erweitern. Zahlreiche Erweiterungs-Boards sind mittlerweile auf dem Markt, um die Funktions- und Leistungsmöglicheiten des Raspberry Pis zu erweitern. Der Autor zeigt dabei das Zusammenspiel vom Raspberry Pi mit dem Gertboard, dem PiFace-Board, dem Quick2Wire-Board, dem AlaMode-Board, dem Pi Cobbler-Board und dem Prototyping-Board auf. Wie Raspberry Pi mit dem Arduino-Mikrocontroller zusammen arbeiten kann, wird ebenso ausführlich dargestellt wie das Erstellen eines eigenen Simple-Boards, um noch mehr Leistung und Möglichkeiten aus dem Raspberry Pi herauszuholen. Server-Anwendungen für den Raspberry Pi. Mit einem Raspberry Pi und einer alten Festplatte kann man sich für kleines Geld einen voll funktionsfähigen Musik- oder Fileserver bauen. Wie Samba und die Web-Serversoftware Apache auf dem Raspberry Pi lauffähig gemacht wird, damit man sich den Single-Board-Computer zu einem Server oder Multimedia-Center ausbauen kann, stellt der Autor detailliert und umfassend dar. Langlebiges Raspberry-Pi-Nachschlagewerk in Farbe. Die elektronische Welt mit Raspberrry Pi entdecken ist komplett vierfarbig. Zahlreiche Farbfotos, farbige Abbildungen und farblich hervorgehobener Code machen das Lesen zu einem Augenschmaus. Detailfotos von Bauteilen helfen dir beim eigenen Zusammenbau ebenso wie farbige Schaltpläne. Noch nie war es so reizvoll, Elektronik zu verstehen – und anzuwenden.
