Hungry for more Raspberry Pi?

As current initiatives encourage UK school children to develop programming skills, the Raspberry Pi - a small, low-cost computing platform that can be adapted for 1000s of electronic applications - is continuing to grow in popularity worldwide, and Wiley is pleased to announce the publication of several new titles to help users make the most of the credit card-sized computer.

Exploring Raspberry Pi: Interfacing to the Real World with Embedded Linux  (9781119188681) by Dr Derek Molloy shows readers how to bring gadgets, gizmos, and programs to life using the popular Raspberry Pi board.

Containing comprehensive content and practical tools to build working projects, it caters for the advanced beginner through to the expert.

Exploring Raspberry Pi's aim is that readers will be able to build systems that use any type of electronics, electronic modules or external peripherals.

Favouring engineering principles over a 'recipe' approach, it gives readers the ‘learning by doing’ skills needed to design and build their own projects, helping them to understand the fundamental principles in a way that transfers to any type of electronics, electronic modules, or external peripherals.

Beginning with the basics of using the Raspberry Pi, the book then moves on to deal with intermediate topics of interfacing, controlling and communicating with almost any type of electronics component or module. Finally, it looks at how the Raspberry Pi can be used for advanced applications including: interacting with real world objects, programming, working with video and images, audio, and more.

A companion website provides a full repository that structures all of the code and scripts, along with links to video tutorials and supplementary content that takes the reader deeper into their project.

Exploring Raspberry Pi: Interfacing to the Real World with Embedded Linux is available now priced £23.99

Raspberry Pi User Guide, 4th Edition (9781119264361) by Eben Upton (co-creator of the Raspberry Pi) and Gareth Halfacree has been fully updated to cover the latest revisions to the Raspberry Pi board and its software.  Appealing to the many people – of whatever age - who want to get the most out of their Raspberry Pi, this book is the go-to guide for beginners who want to dive right in and will also be useful to hardware hobbyists wanting to experiment with a low-cost, easy entry platform.

This updated fourth edition covers the Raspberry Pi 3 board, including clear, step-by-step instruction for everything from software installation and configuration to customising your Raspberry Pi with capability-expanding add-ons, and helps the reader to learn the basic Linux SysAdmin and flexible programming languages that allow them to make their Pi into whatever they want it to be.

Raspberry Pi User Guide, 4th Edition is due to be published in September.

Sitting alongside the bestselling User Guide, Learning Computer Architecture with Raspberry Pi (9781119183938)- by Eben Upton, Jeffrey Duntemann, Ralph Roberts and Tim Mamtora - is aimed at the thousands of owners who want to understand the how the Raspberry Pi works, and - by extension - how all computers work. It will also appeal to hardware hackers who want to get the most out of the Raspberry Pi.

Taking a close look at what each component does, why it is needed, how it works, and how it corresponds to the components of other computing systems, it also explains:

  • Considerations required for designing a computer like the Pi
  • Choices faced by the designer - including memory, storage, Ethernet, processors, cameras and audio
  • How programming works and how the operating system relates to the hardware 
  • How the ARM chip works, making comparisons with other chips such as the Intel processor, and the issues that need to be considered when designing a chip.

Whether the reader is a student, hacker or casual user, Learning Computer Architecture with Raspberry Pi is ideally placed to help the future generation of computer architects and coders get to grips with the inner workings of the Raspberry Pi.

Learning Computer Architecture with Raspberry Pi is due to be published in September.
