If there's one thing the Raspberry Pi organization has proven time and again, it is that great things come in small packages and, if you happen to unwrap a Raspberry Pi 3 this Christmas, know that incredible things are in store for you. Before getting to the amazing part, however, you must first set up that tiny computer in your hand. Don't worry because Tech Times is here for those who need more guidance on that journey. You probably want to get started with learning to code or building cool new things right away but there are a few things you need to take care of before jumping into that and the two most important things are equipment and an Operating System. Other than those, the Raspberry Pi 3 is already a complete computer system at a really affordable price. Just like most toys with a "Batteries not included" note on their packaging, the credit card sized Raspberry Pi 3 does not come with the tools you need to make it run so you first have to ensure that you have the correct cables, external memory, and peripherals to be able to use it. Despite the Pi 3's small size, it has enough ports to attach necessary cables and peripherals and is Wi-fi and Bluetooth enabled for a comfortable user experience. It has four USB 2.0 ports and an HDMI output, which means USB hubs are not really needed for basic use. It is also powered through a micro-USB port, much like smartphones. Basically, what you will need to hook up to the Pi 3 are the following: • microSD card with a minimum capacity of 8GB and a card reader *For the HDMI monitor, you can use an HDMI television or any monitor with an HDMI input port. Assuming that you have all the equipment you need, start connecting the cables to your Pi 3. Take note, however, that you should connect and plug-in the power supply last for obvious reasons. But if it is not obvious enough, we are talking about electricity. Just like with any set-up that involves electricity, power already begins to course through one the device is plugged in so it is better to be safe than electrocuted. Some Raspberry Pi Model 3 versions already have the latest Raspbian OS installed while others do not. If you're one of the lucky people to have been given a Pi 3 with a pre-installed Raspbian OS, you can head on straight to the Raspberry Pi Organization's website and look up several cool projects from both the team and the community of fellow users. If there is no OS, however, please read on. Assuming that you have got everything connected and powered up, you can start following the steps below to get you started. Step 1: Download the latest Raspbian OS This is where the microSD and card reader comes in because the Raspbian OS, which is over 4GB, will have to be installed in it. Unlike the typical computer set-up, the Pi 3 does not have the luxury of an internal memory so both the system and the user must rely on a good, not easily corruptible microSD in its stead. You can download the latest Raspbian OS here and manually install the image but beginners should opt to install via New Out of Box Software (NOOBS) instead. If you choose to install manually, skip to step 4. If you choose NOOBS, continue to step 2. Step 2: Format the microSD card as FAT Assuming you chose to use NOOBS to install Raspbian, you will also have to prepare the microSD card by formatting it as FAT32-a necessary step for NOOBS. But don't worry, doing that is easy. All you have to do is download and use the SD Association's SD Card Formatter and ensure that the "Format Size Adjustment" option-in the Options Menu- is turned ON and you're good to go. The SD Card Formatter is also available for Mac users but with additional instructions and Linux users can use gparted. You can find additional instructions here. Step 3: Extract NOOBS The Raspberry Pi Organization offers NOOBS and NOOBS Lite in its website for easier OS installation. However, do note that what you need is NOOBS because the Lite version does not have the latest Raspbian OS pre-installed, so save yourself the time, hassle, and frustration. Use 7Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac to extract the files you need. Note that the two unzip tools are not required, however, they are also the ones which proved to correctly unzip the necessary files without corrupting any of the files contained in the archive. Once this is successfully done, copy all the extracted files onto the microSD card then insert it in the card reader the insert that in an available USB port. Step 4: Hook up and set up Make sure the connections are all secure to the display and peripherals are all secure then power up your Pi 3. Now wait a bit while NOOBS boots up and prepares your Pi 3. When the loading process is complete, you will see a window asking you to install an operating system and you just have to choose Raspbian and your default language and NOOBS will do the rest. Once the installation is complete, NOOBS will restart your Pi 3 and it will now boot up with the Raspbian OS desktop where you can configure everything else. Step 5: Personalize it Once the desktop is booted up, it will now be easier for you to access your WiFi and pair Bluetooth devices or peripherals. Play around with your new system and look up some projects you can do. In the event that you have no extra HDMI television or display monitors on hand, you can still install the Raspbian by connecting to it using another laptop or desktop. The Raspberry Pi Organization has outlined instructions on installing the Raspbian via a Secure Shell (SSH) for Linux or Mac or Remote Access so take a look at it if you can't wait to use your Pi 3. © 2017 Tech Times, All rights reserved.

BARCELONA, ESPANHA--(Marketwired - 27 de fevereiro de 2017) - Estande CS168 do Mobile World Congress (Congresso Mundial de Telefonia Móvel) - A Especificação 6.0 de SD expande a compatibilidade para dispositivos móveis com o Application Performance Class 2 (A2), que aumenta em mais de 100% as velocidades de leitura e gravação aleatórias garantidas no App Performance Class 1 (A1) de nível de entrada, e com a disponibilização dos novos cartões de memória SD de sinalização de baixa tensão (LVS, Low Voltage Signaling). Esses novos cartões de memória SD mantêm total compatibilidade com o que já existe, bem como incríveis recursos técnicos que mantêm o valor do consumidor e do fabricante com a força bilionária da base de instalação do SD. O SDA introduziu o A1, o App Performance Class básico, em novembro de 2016 como sua classe primeira e básica. O novo A2 é voltado para casos especiais nos quais os hosts requerem níveis ainda maiores de desempenho. Introduzido na especificação 6.0 do SD, o A2 é o nível mais recente e oferece mais flexibilidade no mercado para uma otimização de custo/desempenho baseada no produto, na aplicação do produto ou nas necessidades do mercado. As funções recém-introduzidas de Enfileiramento de comandos, Cache e Manutenção automática são funções do protocolo do SD que permitem níveis superiores de desempenho. Está disponível um vídeo para saber mais sobre ambos os App Performance Classes. A mais nova especificação do SD também permite que os fabricantes de produtos de host de SD ofereçam dispositivos que sejam compatíveis apenas com a Sinalização de baixa tensão (LVS, Low Voltage Signaling) 1.8, que complementa os padrões dos chips mais recentes para desempenho superior e menos consumo de energia. Os cartões de memória SD de LVS mantêm o comprometimento da SDA em relação à compatibilidade com produtos do host já existentes. Todos os cartões de memória compatíveis com o A2 também serão compatíveis com a nova sinalização LVS. "Os novos recursos do SD 6.0 adicionam melhorias de desempenho significativas com relação às versões anteriores dos cartões de memória SD, elevando a funcionalidade do cartão de memória a um novo patamar", disse Stuart Robinson, diretor da Strategy Analytics. "O novo padrão do SD é perfeito para os usuários com memória limitada em seu dispositivo, permitindo que eles executem aplicativos diretamente de um cartão de memória microSD. Os cartões SD já são usados em bilhões de dispositivos ao redor do mundo, e esta nova iniciativa vai ajudar a manter o SD com a opção de escolha para cartões de memória." Os usuários de telefones e computadores móveis podem escolher o melhor cartão de memória SD para executar aplicativos em seus dispositivos móveis combinando o App Performance Class e o símbolo LVS no cartão de memória com o símbolo correspondente do dispositivo ou da embalagem do dispositivo. Novos recursos compatíveis com o desempenho do A2 Os recursos a seguir são necessários em todos os produtos que indicam o desempenho do A2: Sinalização de baixa tensão O símbolo de baixa tensão identifica produtos SD compatíveis com a Interface LV para os usuários. Um host LVS trará o símbolo LV em algum local do produto, embalagem ou manual. Os usuários do dispositivo LVS precisam usar um cartão de memória SD correspondente com um símbolo LV para seu dispositivo marcado com LV. Por outro lado, o cartão LVS pode ser usado por qualquer host, incluindo hosts que não possuem o símbolo LV. Um novo documento, "Mobile Device Innovations: Application Performance Class Expansion and New Low Voltage Signaling for SD Memory Cards" (Inovações para dispositivos móveis: expansão da classe de desempenho do aplicativo e nova sinalização de baixa tensão para os cartões de memória SD), fornece mais detalhes sobre os novos recursos, capacidades e requisitos de mercado.
