GP3/PI connected to a Raspberry PI (note: screw terminals included in kit not installed in this picture; Raspberry PI not included)
Single board Linux computers like the Raspberry Pi, the Beagle Board, and others are a great way to jump start your embedded design. While they are easy to program, many of them lack some of the powerful I/O options you expect on a microcontroller. They also tend to operate on 3.3V.
Our GP3 board is great for adding I/O to a PC, why not add one to a Raspberry Pi? You can, of course, but it requires building out a serial port with proper levels (a good job for an RS-II board. We decided there had to be a better way.
The GP3/Pi is a full software compatible GP3 board that operates with an external 3.3V power supply. The board runs at half the frequency of a normal GP3, so all time related parameters (except baud rate) are double the time or half the frequency of a normal GP3.
The GP-3 has an impressive slate of features including:
Simply connect 4 wires (power, ground, RX, and TX) between your Pi and the GP3/Pi and you'll have unmatched real world I/O capability using a time-proven and efficient board. The simple C library will have you up and running in no time.
You can find all the software and documentation for the GP-3 in the GP-3 Center.
