Company Directory / Raspberry Pi Foundation

Business Description

Wikipedia: "The Raspberry Pi is a series of small single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries. The original model became far more popular than anticipated selling outside its target market for uses such as robotics. It does not include peripherals (such as keyboards, mice and cases). However, some accessories have been included in several official and unofficial bundles.

According to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, over 5 million Raspberry Pis were sold by February 2015, making it the best-selling British computer. …11m by November 2016 …. 12.5m by March 2017, making it the third best-selling "general purpose computer". ….nearly 15 million by July 2017.

They are made in a Sony factory in Pencoed, Wales."
