Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is the most popular series of British computers ever made. Created to help educate the next generation of programmers and engineers the world over, it has been widely adopted by makers, hackers and hobbyists for a multitude of projects. Raspberry Pi is also an ideal rapid prototyping platform for professional engineers and is also being integrated into more and more commercial and Industrial applications.

 

 

Developed by the Raspberry Pi foundation, the latest Raspberry Pi computer features a powerful quad core ARM Cortex processor, including integrated wireless LAN and Bluetooth, USB and HDMI ports. Easily accessible GPIO pinouts open up the platform to a whole host of impressive add-ons boards. All of this is packed onto a single PCB no bigger than a credit card.
