Raspbian is a Debian-based computer operating system for Raspberry Pi. There are several versions of Raspbian including Raspbian Buster and Raspbian Stretch. This product provides the latest version of Raspbian copied onto a 16 GB microSD card for use within a Raspberry Pi.  Since 2015 it has been officially provided by the Raspberry Pi Foundation as the primary operating system for the family of Raspberry Pi single-board computers.

Raspbian is the Foundation’s official supported operating system. Raspbian comes pre-installed with plenty of software for education, programming and general use. It has Python, Scratch, Sonic Pi, Java and more.  The Raspbian with Desktop image contained in the ZIP archive is over 4GB in size, which means that these archives use features which are not supported by older unzip tools on some platforms.

Please Note – This product DOES NOT ship with the Raspberry Pi 4B (1GB) or the Raspberry Pi 3B+.

Description

Raspbian is a Debian-based computer operating system for Raspberry Pi. There are several versions of Raspbian including Raspbian Buster and Raspbian Stretch. This product provides the latest version of Raspbian copied onto a 16 GB microSD card for use within a Raspberry Pi.

Since 2015 it has been officially provided by the Raspberry Pi Foundation as the primary operating system for the family of Raspberry Pi single-board computers. Raspbian is the Foundation’s official supported operating system. Raspbian comes pre-installed with plenty of software for education, programming and general use. It has Python, Scratch, Sonic Pi, Java and more.  The Raspbian with Desktop image contained in the ZIP archive is over 4GB in size, which means that these archives use features which are not supported by older unzip tools on some platforms.

Raspbian was created by Mike Thompson and Peter Green as an independent project. The initial build was completed in June 2012. The operating system is still under active development. Raspbian is highly optimized for the Raspberry Pi line’s low-performance ARM CPUs. Raspbian uses PIXEL, Pi Improved X-Window Environment, Lightweight as its main desktop environment as of the latest update. It is composed of a modified LXDE desktop environment and the Openbox stacking window manager with a new theme and few other changes. The distribution is shipped with a copy of computer algebra program Mathematica and a version of Minecraft called Minecraft Pi as well as a lightweight version of Chromium as of the latest version.

Please Note – This product DOES NOT ship with the Raspberry Pi 4B (1GB) or the Raspberry Pi 3B+. 

About the Raspberry Pi 4B – The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is the latest version of the Raspberry Pi. Just add a keyboard, mouse, display, power supply, micro SD card with installed Linux Distribution and you’ll have a fully fledged computer that can run applications from word processors and spreadsheets to games. The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B builds upon the features of its predecessors with a new, faster processor 1.5Ghz Quad Core Cortex-A72 Processor on board to increase its speed. It also features on-board WiFi and Bluetooth Low Energy capabilities to enhance the functionality and the ability to power more powerful devices over the USB ports.

The latest Raspberry Pi 4 Model B offers 1GB/2GB/4GB LPDDR4 SDRAM, Full-throughput Gigabit Ethernet, Dual-band 802.11ac wireless networking, Bluetooth 5.0, Two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, Dual monitor support with resolutions upto 4K (WOW!!!), VideoCore VI graphics, supporting OpenGL ES 3.x and 4Kp60 hardware decode of HEVC video.

Want to check out the differences between the Pi 3 B+ and the Pi 4 B, check out this article at CNX-Software.com.

Here are the technical specifications of the Raspberry Pi 4B –

  1. Broadcom BCM2711, Quad core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5GHz
  2. 1GB, 2GB or 4GB LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM (depending on model)
  3. 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz IEEE 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 5.0, BLE
  4. Gigabit Ethernet
  5. 2 USB 3.0 ports; 2 USB 2.0 ports.
  6. Raspberry Pi standard 40 pin GPIO header (fully backwards compatible with previous boards)
  7. 2 × micro-HDMI ports (up to 4kp60 supported)
  8. 2-lane MIPI DSI display port
  9. 2-lane MIPI CSI camera port
  10. 4-pole stereo audio and composite video port
  11. H.265 (4kp60 decode), H264 (1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode)
  12. OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics
  13. Micro-SD card slot for loading operating system and data storage
  14. 5V DC via USB-C connector (minimum 3A*)
  15. 5V DC via GPIO header (minimum 3A*)
  16. Power over Ethernet (PoE) enabled (requires separate PoE HAT)
  17. Operating temperature: 0 – 50 degrees C ambient

You should be able to use a good quality 2.5A power supply if downstream USB peripherals consume less than 500mA in total.
