Raspberry Pi Foundation

Over 10 million Raspberry Pi boards have been sold since they were first launched on 29th February 2012, making it Britain’s all-time best-selling computer in just 4 short years

Small in size but big on performance, Raspberry Pi is taking the world by storm. Each Raspberry Pi – from the low power Raspberry Pi A+ to the powerful new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B – provides a perfect mix of performance, cost and connectivity. At the heart of each board there is a powerful Broadcom SoC capable of running a variety of operating systems and programming languages from NOOBS to Windows 10 IoT.

Based in the UK, the Raspberry Pi Foundation (registered educational charity number 1129409) aims to accelerate education and improve computer science skills in children and adults alike. By introducing the credit-card sized Raspberry Pi, a low cost, powerful and easily accessible computer capable of running many programing languages including Scratch and Python, the Foundation has brought coding to a whole new generation of hackers, makers and electronics engineers.

From browsing the internet to playing HD video the Raspberry Pi does everything you would expect a desktop computer to do. Manufactured in the UK under license by RS Components, the Raspberry Pi comes in a number of form factors, from the powerful Raspberry Pi 3 Model B plus for any design project, to the Compute Module, with a small form factor and standard DDR2 SODIMM connector, ideal for industrial and Pi-powered OEM applications.
