What is Raspberry Pi?
The Raspberry Pi is a small single board computers developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in the year 2012 with the aim of teaching Computer Science in schools and in various developing Countries.
With the 21st century being completely obsessed with technology it is a great deal of advantage to develop projects to meet the technology needs. So Raspberry Pi helps you in this scenario.
All the models of Raspberry Pi configure a Broadcom System on a chip (SoC) with an integrated ARM compatible CPU and on chip GPU. The processor speed ranges from 700MHz to 1.2 GHz. The on-board memory ranges from 256MB to 1GB RAM.
The operating system and program memory are stored using the Secure Digital cards. The Raspberry Pi board consists of a single USB port or up to four USB ports.

Raspberry PI Zero

Raspberry Pi Zero was released in November 2015. This model was smaller in size having twice the utility compared to previous generation model.
This model had a reduced input/output (I/O) and general-purpose I/O capabilities.

The various projects of raspberry Pi zero are:
·        Pi0drone - A smart drone with pi zero
·        Pedal-pi   - Programmable Guitar Pedal
·        Automated Indoor Gardener
·        Joytone    - Unique musical instrument made from joysticks light and pi 0
·        There are numerous projects developed using Pi zero.

The Upgraded Version of Pi zero is the Raspberry Pi zero W
