The Raspberry Pi is a small, powerful and lightweight ARM based computer which can do many of the things a desktop PC can do. The powerful graphics capabilities and HDMi video output make it ideal for multimedia applications such as media centres and narrowcasting solutions. The Raspberry Pi is based on a Broadcom BCM2835 chip. It does not feature a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, instead relying on an SD card for booting and long-term storage.

So whether you want to learn to programme, hack around with some hardware or design it in at the core of your innovative new device. The only challenge is deciding what you will do with yours?

NEW Raspberry Pi Compute Module Development Kit

NEW Raspberry Pi Compute Module Development Kit

The new Compute Module from Raspberry Pi delivers greater flexibility for professional embedded applications. This new Raspberry Pi board has been developed specifically for engineers in the professional market to create their own embedded system. The Compute Module fits into a standard DDR2 SODIMM socket and provides the same basic features of a standard Raspberry Pi, including a Broadcom BCM2835 processor and 512 Mbyte of RAM. It replaces the SD card with an onboard 4 Gbyte eMMC Flash device, and integrates everything on to a compact 67.6 x 30 mm board. The Compute Module is initially available as part of a development kit, bundled together with the IO Development Board, which brings out all of the IO connectivity to form a prototyping platform for electronics design engineers. The Compute Module as a stand-alone product will be available from the autumn.
