Small in size and big on performance, 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.
It’s not just millions of people on earth who are using their Raspberry Pi for programming, projects, hacks, products or teaching. From education to production lines the ease of use, support and versatility of the Raspberry Pi board allows anyone new to programming, experienced engineers or even astronauts to become involved with Pi.
In February 2016 astronaut Tim Peake turned on his Astro Pi, a specially adapted Raspberry Pi with the Pi Sense HAT, and started coding in space.
So wherever you are (even if you’re on a space station) get coding and inventing with your own Raspberry Pi.
Based in the UK, the Raspberry Pi Foundation (registered educational charity number 1129409) aims to accelerate the education and improve the skills of children and adults in computer science, programming and related subjects. 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.
