The latest addition to the Raspberry Pi family, the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B takes the platform to a completely new level. Combining a six fold increase in processing power and a doubling of memory capacity with complete backward compatibility with the existing Model B Plus, Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is the perfect board for professionals and hobbyists alike. The new Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is jam packed with features. With a new quad core processor and twice the memory with a massive 1GB RAM. It's a whopping 6x faster than its predecessor. The ultra-low-cost, deck-of-cards sized Linux computer has had a makeover, and it's a good one at that. The updated Pi 2 Model B design is based around a Broadcom BCM2836 SoC, which includes an Quad Core ARM7 900 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 1 Gigabyte of RAM. This revision Pi 2 Model B board features four mounting holes for easy installation, a built-in reset circuit, and can be powered via the USB data ports. The design does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, instead relying on an microSD card for booting and long-term storage. This board is intended to run Linux kernel based operating systems. The Raspberry Pi uses Linux-kernel based operating systems. The Raspberry Pi does not come with a real-time clock, so an OS must use a network time server, or ask the user for time information at boot time to get access to time and date info for file time and date stamping. However a real time clock (such as the DS1307) with battery backup can be easily added via the I2C interface. Required items to get up and running are: MicroSD card, Power Supply, Keyboard, Mouse, and HDMI compatible display.
