I was digging in my stuff, and found a bunch of RPis. From what I can tell, they are pretty old - circa 2011,2012 Raspberry Pi B. Visual identifiers are:

  • RCA and 3.5mm audio jacks are near the GPIO pins
  • CPU is SK Hynix
  • Sticker on the back says e2213rs2v13b1.0

I can't find schematics or mechanical drawings for this model. I figure they're old enough, that I can use them to experiment on the hardware - have them resoldered for a project I have in mind, but I could use a reference point.

Update:

First of all, thank you everyone for the help thus far. However, since I still haven't found the information I seek, I am adding additional info.

I am reasonably certain, that the model is Raspberry R1.0 model B so the question is not regarding how to identify the board.

Documentation for this model is NOT available at

    Have you tried searching for raspberry pi wiki? Identifying the model should be a trivial exercise.

  • @Joan, Thank you! I'm not after the model. I'm already 100% certain it's the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B (not B+) I'm looking for the schematics? PCB layout and hardware drawings.

    Perhaps they have not been published. Check at datasheets.raspberrypi.com and raspberrypi.com/documentation/computers/…

  • @joan Don't see them on either page.

  • There aren't complete schematics publicly available for any model of Pi...they're proprietary.

The Schematics and Mechanical Drawings of most models are available.

The Pi Model B did have a reasonably "complete" 5 page schematic (Raspberry-Pi-Schematics-R1.0.pdf), but does not seem to be included.

  • I think the "not included" info is what I am seeking. I've looked through the rest of the documents already, but it does not seem to match the boards I have on hand.

  • I don't know why you would want the schematic. The vast bulk of users don't. I am interested because I used to design my own computers but everything you need to know to use the Pi is readily available. If you have a specific question ask.

  • Well, I read that RPi has a PCIe bus, I've found instructions, videos et al, but not for the model I have.

  • The Pi DOES NOT have a PCIe bus. If interested a search for Raspberry-Pi-Schematics-R1.0.pdf found the schematic.

  • Darn, you are right... looks like it only appeared in later versions of RPi

The information you seek should be at https://www.raspberrypi.com/documentation/computers/raspberry-pi.html

To determine the version of a pi is simple if you have a running linux on it; see https://elinux.org/RPi_HardwareHistory

Note that, although some information is available, it may not be complete. See https://forums.raspberrypi.com/viewtopic.php?t=55777 for an explanation.
