Raspberry Pi 3 Model B


Platform Linux ARM: Linux ARM is a Unix-like and mostly POSIX-compliant computer operating system (OS) assembled under the model of free and open-source software development and distribution. Using host OS (Mac OS X, Linux ARM) you can build native application for Linux ARM platform.

Microcontroller BCM2837
Frequency 1200MHz
Flash 1GB
Vendor Raspberry Pi


Please use raspberrypi_3b ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

platform = linux_arm
board = raspberrypi_3b

You can override default Raspberry Pi 3 Model B settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest raspberrypi_3b.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

platform = linux_arm
board = raspberrypi_3b

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = bcm2837

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 1200000000L


PIO Unified Debugger currently does not support Raspberry Pi 3 Model B board.


Name Description
WiringPi WiringPi is a GPIO access library written in C for the BCM2835 used in the Raspberry Pi. It’s designed to be familiar to people who have used the Arduino “wiring” system.
