Building The Raspberry Pi: CanaKit Raspberry Pi 3 B+ Complete Starter Kit

Raspberry PiThis post is part of the series on building my new Raspberry Pi; this series is a sub-series of the Adventures with a Raspberry Pi.

I have no prior experience dealing with the Raspberry PI, so I went the easy route and bought a starter kit from Amazon:

CanaKit Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (B Plus) Complete Starter Kit - UK Edition (32 GB Samsung EVO+)

This starter kit includes everything necessary for a working Raspberry PI and includes the most recent version of the Raspberry Pi itself. It includes the following:

  • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (B Plus) with 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 CPU (BCM2837B0)
  • 1 GB LPDDR2 SDRAM
  • On-board WiFi and Bluetooth Connectivity
  • 32 GB Samsung EVO+ Micro SD Card (Class 10) pre-loaded with NOOBS
  • USB MicroSD Card Reader
  • CanaKit 2.5A Micro USB Power Supply (UK) with Noise Filter
  • Premium Raspberry Pi 3 Case
  • High Quality HDMI Cable with CEC support (6-foot cable)
  • Set of 2 Aluminum Heat Sinks
  • GPIO Quick Reference Card
  • CanaKit Full Colour Quick-Start Guide

in the next post, I’ll be assembling the Raspberry Pi.
