This new carrier board adds the ability to connect, monitor, control, and automate the large number of existing devices that were previously beyond the Pi’s built-in 3.3 VDC GPIO sensing and control capabilities. This enables Raspberry Pi developers across the world to build solutions for real-world industrial automation, remote monitoring, and discrete control applications using their Raspberry Pi and industrially hardened I/O modules. The Raspberry Pi is a flexible single-board computing platform originally designed as an educational tool for software students. It’s an extremely approachable system that can run both Linux and Windows operating systems. With a variety of input/output interfaces including USB, HDMI, and 40 3.3 VDC GPIO pins, the Raspberry Pi has been an excellent tool for rapid prototyping and development. Using its built-in GPIO pins, small electrical devices and peripherals like LEDs and push buttons can be connected through breadboards and wires to build hobby-level monitoring and control applications.
