Model B (retail board will not include pin headers)
|Developer||Raspberry Pi Foundation|
|OS||Raspbmc, OpenELEC, Debian GNU/Linux, Fedora, Arch Linux|
|CPU||ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz|
|Storage||SD card slot|
|Connectivity||USB 2, composite video, HDMI, SD card slot, 3.5 mm audio, 10/100 ethernet, GPIO|
The Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 256 MB of RAM. The design does not include internal storage, instead relying on an SD card for booting and long-term storage.
1 XBMC for Raspberry Pi
Team-XBMC developers are working on porting XBMC to the Raspberry Pi using beta boards supplied by the RPi Foundation.

- ↑ 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 The 26-pin GPIO connector is not assembled on the board. The end-user must purchase and solder a 13x2 pin header with 0.1-inch (2.54mm) spacing. The pin header can be either a straight pin header, mounted on either the bottom or the top, (to connect to a "daughterboard") or it can be a right-angle shrouded box connector for use with a ribbon cable.
- ↑ XBMC can be compiled now to run on Raspberry Pi, but no stable binary is has been released yet from Team XBMC
- ↑ 3.0 3.1 Though the Model A doesn't have an RJ45 Ethernet port, it can connect to a network by using a user supplied USB Ethernet or Wi-Fi adapter.
