1. What Else Should We Prepare?¶
Raspberry Pi 4 Model B
Pirionman is fully compatible with Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. If you have Raspberry Pi 1B+/2B/3B/3B+, you can use them as well, but the tower cooler inside the Pironman may not be as compatible.
5V/3A Power Adapter
This 5V/3A power adapter plugs into Pironman’s Power connector and powers all components. You can power the Raspberry Pi 4 separately if you are also connecting other devices that consume a lot of power.
Micro SD Card
As the Raspberry Pi is completely enclosed in the Pironman, we have reserved an additional micro SD port for you. The micro SD card you use should have a capacity at least 8GB.
M.2 SATA SSD
The M.2 SSD interface only supports SATA protocol, not NVME/PCIe.
For more information on how to mount SSD to Pironman and the related configuration, please refer to :M.2 SATA SSD.
In the Pironman’s mainboard, there is an M.2 SSD connector for installing your M.2 SSD.
An M.2 SSD is a small form factor solid-state drive (SSD) that is used in internally mounted storage expansion cards. M.2 SSDs conform to a computer industry specification and are designed to enable high-performance storage in thin, power-constrained devices, such as ultrabook laptops and tablet computers.
To view the desktop environment of Raspberry Pi, you need to use the screen that can be a TV screen or a computer monitor. If the screen has built-in speakers, the Pi plays sounds via them.
Micro HDMI Cable
There are two Micro HDMI output ports on the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, and you will need a converter cable to connect it to your screen.
Mouse & Keyboard
When you use a screen, a USB keyboard and a USB mouse are also needed.
Sound or Earphone
The Raspberry Pi is equipped with an audio port about 3.5 mm that can be used when your screen has no built-in speakers or when there is no screen operation.
