Limited Edition Raspberry Pi

Posted by RS Components on


RS Components has manufactured 1000 Special Limited Edition Anniversary Raspberry Pi's.  

These special edition Raspberry Pi's are the same as the current Model B Revision 2 boards, but with a blue PCB.  Each board is stamped with a serial number and is supplied in a special presentation box together with a crystal blue user case, designed and donated by One-Nine-Designs, and a certificate of authenticity signed by Eben Upton, Executive Director of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.


Important stuff

These limited anniversary edition boards are not for general sale. RS will issue these through a variety of channels to support developers, enthusiasts and good causes.  Most will be donated directly to charitable causes associated with young people and education around the world.
