Each generation of Raspberry Pi boards gets more sophisticated; today, they’re an ideal gateway for learning to design Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The latest iteration, the Raspberry Pi 3, is equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities, has 1GB RAM, 4 USB ports, 40 GPIO pins, a full HDMI port, an Ethernet port, and interfaces for a camera and display. The six-layer, Fx4 circuit boards have through wires and impedance control and are small, roughly the size of a credit card. Their customers get all of this functionality for a mere $35.
