Make a Raspberry Pi Bench Computer – List of Parts

This list contains items that I used in this course. You probably already have most of these items, and you can always substitute some of them with items that you do have, or others that you think might work better.

For example, you may choose to substitute the 3.5mm audio jacks for banana plugs instead if you already have banana plugs in your drawers. They might actually work better!

Much of what I used, I did because I happened to have them already in my drawers.

For convenience, you can order these items with a single click from my Amazon affiliate store. You can edit them, including change quantities, once they are copied in your Amazon shopping cart.

If you wish to purchase these parts from Amazon, click on the “Buy” button. The contents of this list will be copied to your Amazon shopping cart. Once there, you will be able to add and remove items, and adjust their quantities.

If you do not live in the US, consider using a freight forwarding service like Shipito and Borderlinx. You can ship your shopping to them, and they will forward to you, anywhere in the world. This is useful in case, for at least some of the items in your shopping list, Amazon will not ship to addresses outside the US.

Other tools you will need for this project (not included in the list above) are:

  • A soldering iron, if you wish to assemble the relay control circuit PCB
  • A hot air SMD rework station, if you wish to use shrink tubing to insulate wire joins (or you can use a hair dryer)
  • Bench power supplies x 2 if you wish to test your relay circuit before you assemble and integrate it with your Bench Computer

You will also need things to drive on your bench. This could be 12V LED lamps or strips or any low power appliance, and mains devices like lights and instruments on your bench.
