OKdo is supplying the first all-in-one PC from Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi 400 provides even easier access to the world of computing and electronics

London, UK, 2nd November 2020 – OKdo, the global technology company from Electrocomponents plc, today announced the availability of Raspberry Pi 400, an all-in-one personal computer, created by Raspberry Pi and based on the hugely popular Raspberry Pi 4 single-board computer.

Recalling the design of the early home computers that inspired a generation of children to become engineers, Raspberry Pi 400 takes the form of a keyboard. Users simply plug in a USB-C based power supply, mouse and micro-SD card configured with a suitable operating system, such as Raspberry Pi OS, to start exploring the world of computing and electronics.

At the heart of Raspberry Pi 400 is the 64-bit BCM2711 system-on-chip, which integrates a quad-core Arm Cortex-A72 CPU running at 1.8GHz, and a VideoCore VI graphics processor supporting OpenGL ES 3.1 and Vulkan graphics, H.264 and H.265 video, and sophisticated image processing capabilities. 4GB of LPDDR4-3200 DRAM provides space for the most demanding use cases.

Raspberry Pi 400 provides a rich variety of connectivity and interfacing options: two USB 3.0 ports and a single USB 2.0 port for peripherals; two micro-HDMI ports, supporting up to 4k resolution; Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac wireless networking and Bluetooth 5; and a standard 40-pin GPIO port, supporting Raspberry Pi HAT expansion boards.

“At OKdo, we believe Raspberry Pi 400 will bring all of the strengths of the Raspberry Pi platform and community to an entirely new audience,” said Richard Curtin, OKdo’s SVP of Technology. “The convenience of a PC, housed in a keyboard, that requires no self-assembly and is ready to go out-of-the-box removes one the few remaining barriers to adoption for Raspberry Pi.”

Raspberry Pi 400 is available on its own, or as part of a kit containing a power supply, a mouse, an HDMI lead, a 16GB micro-SD card with Raspberry Pi OS preinstalled, and a copy of the Raspberry Pi Beginner’s Guide. English (UK and US), French, Italian, German and Spanish keyboard variants, with accompanying translated Beginner’s Guides, are available at launch, with more to follow over the coming year.

Raspberry Pi 400 will be available across Europe, the US and Canada from 2nd November, with availability being extended to include India, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and South Africa shortly afterwards.

Common Design Pitfalls When Designing With Hall 2D Sensors And How To Avoid Them

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

This article discusses three widespread application issues in industrial and automotive end equipment – rotary encoding, in-plane magnetic sensing, and safety-critical – that can be solved more efficiently using devices with new features and higher performance. We will discuss in which end products these applications can be found and also provide a comparison with our traditional digital Hall-effect sensors showing how the new releases complement our existing portfolio.
