 Figure 1: Gert Board and Raspberry PI

The Gertboard is an input/output (I/O) extension board for the Raspberry Pi computer. It fits onto the GPIO (general purpose I/O) pins of the Raspberry Pi (the double row of pins on the upper left corner) via a socket on the back of the Gertboard. A bit of care is required when putting the two devices together. It is easy to insert just one row of pins into the socket, but all of the pins need to be connected. The Gertboard gets its power from those GPIO pins, so you will need a power supply for the Raspberry Pi (RPi) that is capable of supplying a current of at least 1A. The Gertboard has collection of functional blocks (the major capabilities of the board) which can be connected together in a myriad of ways using header pins.

The functional blocks are:

  • 12x buffered I/O

  • 3x pushbuttons

  • 6x open collector drivers (50V, 0.5A)

  • 18V, 2A motor controller

  • 28-pin dual in line ATmega microcontroller

  • 2-channel 8, 10, or 12 bit Digital to Analogue converter

  • 2-channel 10 bit Analogue to Digital converter

The location of these blocks on the Gertboard is shown in Figure 2.


Figure 2: Functional blocks diagram: the key blocks are identified by coloured boundary marking. Please note that the appearance of some components can vary.

This annotated photo of a populated (fully assembled) Gertboard shows where the functional blocks are located. Some of the blocks have two areas marked. For example, the turquoise lines showing the Atmel ATmega chip not only surround the chip itself and the header pins next to it (on the lower left) but also surround two header pins near the bottom of the board, in the middle. These two pins are connected to the Atmel chip and provide an easy way to interface the GPIO signals from the Raspberry Pi (which are in the black box) with the Atmel chip. There is no connection (other than power and ground) between the different functional blocks on the Gertboard. The many headers (the rows of pins sticking up from the board) allow you to make these connections, using straps and jumpers.


Figure 3: Photograph showing straps (the coloured wires) above, and jumpers below. Straps connect two parts of Gertboad together, whilst jumpers conveniently connect two adjacent pins together.

      Overview:The RASPBERRY-MODB+-512M is a credit card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard, its like a little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing and games. It also plays high definition video. The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 512Mbytes of RAM. The design does not include a built in hard disk or solid state drive, instead relying on a microSD card for booting and long term storage. This board is intended to run Linux kernel...
