  • What and When to Expect from the Raspberry Pi 5

    Raspberry Pi boards remain one of the top choices for inexpensive, general-purpose, all-around, single-board computers. Linux-based Raspberry Pi kits have had several iterations since its launch in 2012. Almost a decade after, four generations have been released. Despite various enhancements and upgrades, the Raspberry Pi computer board maintains its affordability. The small board is a big hit not only for computer enthusiasts, but also for DIY makers, hobbyists, and project builders, as well.The fourth generation of Raspberry Pi received a full upgrade. With a faster CPU, more RAM options, faster Bluetooth, integration of the latest USB-C ports, and many other upgrades, the Raspberry Pi 4 could deliver a desktop performance, which is what most people had been waiting for. The next question is “Could it get any better?” Nothing is constant in technology, and upgrades and updates pop up like mushrooms every now and then. The better question is, “What can the new Raspberry Pi 5 bring to the table?”

    Fans of the tiny computer can only speculate what the new board will be since there is not any news yet as to whether there will be a successor to the Raspberry Pi 4 B. The latest iteration is the Raspberry Pi 400, which is basically a Raspberry Pi 4 B enclosed in a casing that comes with a keyboard and has a fixed 4 GB of RAM. Since there is always a demand for better performance and new technology arises every so often, a fifth generation of Raspberry Pi board is just around the corner. But what can we expect from the newest Raspberry Pi version?


  • Mini-PC kit for Raspberry Pi features 192 LEDs and multiple sensors

    On Kickstarter: A $113 and up “LumiCube” kit for the Raspberry Pi with 192 programmable LCDs, 2W speaker, mic, a Python UI, and optional sensors and 2-inch display.

    A UK-based startup called Abstract Foundry has gone to Kickstarter to successfully launch a mini-PC kit for the Raspberry Pi 3 or 4. The sensor-laden kit ships with an open source Python development environment and sample apps to ease beginners into programming. Shipments are expected in September.

  • Raspberry Pi case embeds 192 programmable LEDs, speaker, microphone, and sensors (Crowdfunding)

    Most Raspberry Pi enclosures are designed to protect your board from dust, provide easy access to ports, and in other cases, ease the installation of hard drives or SSDs.

    But Abstract Foundry’s LumiCube does much more, and just calling it a case or enclosure is an understatement, as while it does house a Raspberry Pi, it also comes with 192 programmable LEDs placed over 3 panels, a speaker, a microphone, as well as several optional motion & environmental sensors, and a small 2-inch LCD display.

  • Create a countdown clock with a Raspberry Pi

    For 2021, Pi Day has come and gone, leaving fond memories and plenty of Raspberry Pi projects to try out. The days after any holiday can be hard when returning to work after high spirits and plenty of fun, and Pi Day is no exception. As we look into the face of the Ides of March, we can long for the joys of the previous, well, day. But fear no more, dear Pi Day celebrant! For today, we begin the long countdown to the next Pi Day!

    OK, but seriously. I made a Pi Day countdown timer, and you can too!

    A while back, I purchased a Raspberry Pi Zero W and recently used it to figure out why my WiFi was so bad. I was also intrigued by the idea of getting an ePaper display for the little Zero W. I didn't have a good use for one, but, dang it, it looked like fun! I purchased a little 2.13" Waveshare display, which fit perfectly on top of the Raspberry Pi Zero W. It's easy to install: Just slip the display down onto the Raspberry Pi's GIPO headers and you're good to go.

Security module available in pHAT kit for Raspberry Pi and Jetso

  • Security module available in pHAT kit for Raspberry Pi and Jetson

    Zymbit has launched an “HSM4” security module for embedded Linux systems that is available in a $125 HAT kit that supports Pi and Jetson boards. An upcoming “HSM6” module adds cryptocurrency support.

    Zymbit has announced a follow-on to its Zymkey4 and other Zymkey security modules dating back to the original, Kickstarter launched ZymKey we covered back in 2015. One of the key differences is that the new HSM4 is designed to be directly deployable on embedded Linux devices via a 30-pin connector rather than using the Zymbit’s pHAT form factor. To ease the transition, the HSM4 is also available as part of a pHAT that once again targets the Raspberry Pi and Nvidia Jetson based kits such as the 40-pin equipped Jetson Xavier NX Developer Kit.

Zymbit HSM4 & HSM6 security modules work with embedded Linux...

  • Zymbit HSM4 & HSM6 security modules work with embedded Linux hardware, Raspberry Pi, Jetson Nano

    Zymbit Zymkey security modules, now called Zymkey4i, were first introduced several years ago. Based on the Microchip ATECC508A CryptoAuthentication chip, the modules were available as a USB stick, an I2C module for Raspberry Pi boards, or an SMT component, and designed to enable multifactor device ID & authentication, data encryption & signing, key storage & generation, and physical tamper detection.

    The company has now informed CNX Software they had launched HSM4 cryptographic protection module and HSM6 hardware wallet with a different form factor for easy integration into embedded applications, and devkits compatible with Jetson Nano and Raspberry Pi SBCs.

Raspberry Pi In A Cube? Abstract foundry’s LumiCube Is Trending

  • Raspberry Pi In A Cube? Abstract foundry’s LumiCube Is Trending on Kickstarter

    LumiCube is an all-new experience powered by Raspberry Pi. It is a Raspberry Pi kit with 192 LEDs combined with a 2W speaker, a microphone, and several sensors all inside a 10 cm cube. What makes it interesting is that everything is programmable with python, meaning that it is highly customizable.

    You can make it your digital assistant, your digital clock, an aesthetically pleasing showpiece, and what not?

    The project is currently raising funds at Kickstarter. So, here, let me highlight a few things about it before you decide to back it up.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
