Advanced Raspberry Pi: Raspbian Linux and Gpio Integration
Jump right into the pro-level guts of the Raspberry Pi with complete schematics and detailed hardware explanations as your guide. You'll tinker with runlevels, reporting voltages and temperatures, and work on a variety of project examples that you can tune for your own project ideas..
This book is fully updated for the latest Pi boards with three chapters dedicated to GPIO to help you master key aspects of the Raspberry Pi. You'll work with Linux driver information and explore the different Raspberry Pi models, including the Pi Zero, Pi Zero W, Pi 2, Pi3 B and Pi3 B+. You'll also review a variety of project examples that you can tune for your own project ideas. Other topics covered include the 1-Wire driver interface, how to configure a serial Linux console, and cross-compile code, including the Linux kernel.
You'll find yourself turning to Advanced Raspberry Pi over and over again for both inspiration and reference. Whether you're an electronics professional, an entrepreneurial maker, or just looking for more detailed information on the Raspberry Pi, this is exactly the book for you.

About the Author
Warren Gay has been an electronics enthusiast since childhood and often dragged discarded TV sets home after school. In high school he learned to program the IBM-1130 and then pursued a career in software development at Ryerson Polytechnical, in Toronto. Since then he has worked professionally for over 30 years, mainly in C/C++, under Unix and Linux. Meanwhile, the love of electronics has never faded since the early creation of his home-brewed Intel 8008 system in the 70's to the present day projects employing the Raspberry Pi. Warren also holds an advanced amateur radio license and was able to work the Mir space station (U2MIR) using packet radio in August 1991.He's authored other books including Sams Teach Yourself Linux in 24 Hours, Linux Socket Programming by Example, and Advanced Unix Programming.
