Hardware

The volunteers of the Raspberry Pi project have, with the arrival and demonstration of the first alpha "Model B" boards, moved another step closer to their vision of creating an ARM-based, low-cost computer for education.

Plans for the release of the device are being developed; Model A and B versions of the Raspberry Pi, costing $25 (just over £15) and $35 (just over £22), are hoped to be available by November. The Model A will have 128 MB of SDRAM while the Model B will have 256 MB. One USB 2.0 port will be available on the model A, whereas the Model B will have a 2-port USB hub and a 10/100 Ethernet controller. HDMI and composite video output on both models will be complemented with an SD/MMC/SDIO capable memory card slot and general purpose I/O and other interfaces brought out to 1.27 mm pin-strip. Keyboards, mice and other peripherals can be connected over the USB. More details about the hardware can be found on elinux.org.
