SparkFun Raspberry Pi 4 Desktop Kit - 8GB

Added to your shopping cart

The Raspberry Pi 4 Desktop Kit includes everything you need to turn any monitor with an HDMI port into a desktop PC. A 64GB MicroSD card provides the capacity and speed needed to run most operating systems for the Raspberry Pi platform smoothly. The USB Type C wall adapter and Type-C to Type-C cable provide a modular power system for the Raspberry Pi 4. The heat sink case provides protection for the Raspberry Pi Board but also cools the major components allowing it to run smoothly during heavy usage. The Logitech K400 keyboard provides a plug and play HID solution for the system. Finally, we've included both an HDMI to Micro HDMI cable to interface to any HDMI monitors and our Qwiic Shim which allows for easily attaching any of our Qwiic Boards for adding another level to your desktop setup.

If you're looking to create a PC or Media Center with the Raspberry Pi 4, this is the kit for you. All the components were chosen and vetted to create the highest quality, least frustrating experience that allows the Pi to work to its full potential. The new 64GB card has blazing fast read write speeds that brings updates from half an hour down to 3 minutes when compared to our previous card. You'll struggle to find a more plug and play kit for the Pi that allows you to load the operating system of your choice.

Note: The Qwiic Shim is not intended to be used with the Heatsink case, as it prevents the case from properly connecting with the processor. The top of the case needs to be off should you use the Shim or utilize an extension header in conjunction with a Pi Hat.

The SparkFun Qwiic connect system is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector. This reduces the amount of required PCB space, and polarized connections mean you can’t hook it up wrong.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
