Is the most popular Linux SBC, “The 𝐑𝐚𝐬𝐩𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐲 𝐏𝐢”, used in automotive product development?
Yes, it is, though it is not used as a series component for a vehicle. Instead, you can find these valuable little helpers in many departments, from development to HIL testing. Formerly designed to be an entry-level piece of education for computer science, the Raspberry Pi is a full-blown Linux machine enabling engineers to solve tasks in everyday business rapidly. Great for implementing a proof of concept on the desk or as a sink or source for data and protocols in a Test rack.
With our new 𝗻𝗲𝗼𝗩𝗜 𝗣𝗜, Intrepid Control Systems provides a Raspberry PI in a robust housing, improving durability and vibration resistance. It contains an automotive-grade power supply supporting 5 to 60 V input and is accompanied by an additional implemented Raspberry Pico for real-time tasks and two ValueCAN4-2, providing a total of 4 CAN-FD channels. In addition, all Pin-Headers are exposed internally for easy Expansion.
The tool offers many more such as expansion headers, M2 NVMe Slot, programable user LEDs, and more.
