Old version RaspberryPi question


#1

I got a RaspberryPi 1B, but it’s not on the list of availible components.
I wonder if it can work also. Thank you.

It should work OK, so long as you don’t want to run anything much else on it - dump1090 + piaware + mlat can take 70-90% of the available CPU on the older Pis.

Also I wouldn’t run it anywhere that’s hard to get at, physically - the sdcard slot on 1Bs is not very reliable so you may need to reimage the sdcard from time to time.

Thank you very much !!!

In particular, I would avoid using a WiFi dongle, as that consumes a fair amount of CPU on the old Pi. One of my two sites runs on a 1B and it’s been stable.
