    Raspberry Pi

    The original Raspberry Pi Model B computer went on sale in February 2012 and set a new standard shattering the dominance of the PC in the home and education markets. Over 3 million boards in the various formats, A, B, A+, B+ and Compute have since been shipped worldwide. The original concept of the Raspberry Pi was for a high-performance computer board providing Internet access with HD graphics at very low cost. The boards provide a platform for children and adults from any background to acquire computer science knowledge and help develop the future World-Wide-Web and the Internet of Things. While the Raspberry Pi boards were designed primarily for education, they have become very popular with manufacturers of embedded systems. In order to support this market, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has ensured backwards compatibility with each new revision. The bare-bones Compute module is aimed specifically at the OEM manufacturer.
