With a few comments I've seen like:

 

"I didn't know the TIPI was something that hooked to the TI I thought it was a emulation of the TI on the Raspberry PI"

"This sounds like the PI does the things and the TI connects to it like the turboXT thing from the past"

"This sounds like a waste of time with the nanoPEB I have more functionality"

"I know nothing about the TIPI but I'm going to state my opinion anyway"

 

Lets see where people are as far as TIPI understanding and perhaps we should set up some "meetups" other than at the fests to discuss and answer questions online.

note, the zero pi without the W or WH won't have internet access natively.. you'd have to do some kajiggering with usb adapters for the network 

 

I don't think my SD-Card image would work on the older PI Zero without WIFI... I thought it had a substantially different system-on-a-chip... so stay away from that.

 

Supported:

PI Zero W, 

PI 3 B,

PI 3 B Plus

The only issue I have with this project is with the side car version.  I won't use the PEB version because of all my existing PEB hardware for TI & Geneve systems.  I need someone to do a 256K - 1MB AMS/SAMS side car with 44 pin interface to the TI PI, as a replacement for the 32K side car that is required for the current interface.  Then I will be on board for the existing version.  Any takers out there?

The poll is missing the option "I already bought my TIPI"!

Why isn't "A small furry rodent" and option on every question? I refuse to take this poll until that is fixed.

All versions of the Pi Zero and Pi 1 (A, B, A+, and B+) use a BCM2835.  Depending on which pins tipi uses, the cable you are using to connect to the pi may not be fully compatible with the model A and B.

 

The Pi 2 B used the BCM2836 until October 2016. (ARMv7)  If you buy a Pi 2 B after that, you're likely to get a v1.2 board which uses a BCM2837.  Broadcom stopped making the 2836, so the new v1.2 Pi 2 model B was basically a Pi 3 model B without wifi/bluetooth.  Didn't cost any less, but there were some users who needed the version without radios, so RPF kept it around.

The Pi 3 B, as mentioned, uses the BCM2837.  The BCM2837B0 is a slight mod to the 2837 with the heat spreader allowing it to clock a little higher without quite so much heat generation.  That combined with the new support chips on the Pi 3 B+ make it clock faster and have better WiFi and Ethernet.  Technically the BCM2837 is a 64-bit ARMv8 device, but … we use them on the Pi as 32-bit ARMv7(s) devices because 1GB RAM sucks for 64 bit twice as much as it does for 32.  ;)

I wouldn't recommend a Pi 1 A/B, but the A+/B+ should just work for you.  And if they work for you, probably the older 2 B+ will work without much modification aside from verifying what speed it wants to operate at.

 

 

Clear as mud, eh?  :)  If you have a Pi Zero without WiFi, you'd probably want either an Ethernet dongle supported by Linux (no, Android support doesn't mean it will work for those USB-OTG models) or a USB WiFi adapter (again, must be Linux supported).  But by the time you're doing all of that, really, why don't you just get yourself a Pi Zero W from Greg with the convenient header already installed, or pick up a Pi with the networking option you want built right in?  The Pi is the cheapest part of getting TiPi set up and running.

Just to be clear, I can only support what I have.

If you have a problem with something I don't have, you are on your own, or you will have to supply me one of whatever it is.

I support the 3 types of PI I listed. That is it. It doesn't matter to me how the same they might be.

That's fair.  If someone wants to see something else supported, they ought to send one to you.  ;)

 

I actually don't have an A, an A+/B+, or a 2 Rev 1.2 (which is a 3 without BT/WiFi).  I have 2s, and if I can dig up an extra you're welcome to it if you'd like to test it.  I only need one for a2cloud testing.
