Components required to operate the Raspberry Pi

In addition to the single-board computer, you need a few other components to operate the Raspberry Pi. Since no power supply unit is integrated on the board, an external power adapter with the appropriate voltage and power can
be connected to the mini computer via the USB socket. A monitor is required for graphic output. The keyboard and mouse for controlling and operating the device can be connected via USB.
Basically, there is no fixed operating system for the Raspberry Pi. The computer can run with various operating systems via a memory card that is inserted into the existing memory card slot. It is recommended to use the
special Linux distribution Raspbian, which is based on Debian Linux. The latest Raspberry models are also compatible with Windows 10. However, a special small device variant of Windows 10 is required.
