Raspberry Pi Wiki Hub deu | eng | fra | pt-br

The Raspberry Pi wiki pages on this site are a community work - the Raspberry Pi Foundation is not responsible for content on these pages.

Now shipping to customers

Premier Farnell and RS Components have started shipping to customers. Congratulations to those at the front of the queue!.

Work is ongoing to clear the backlog of orders, with both distributors now manufacturing them in serial production. Farnell/Element14 have stated that all people worldwide who ordered their Raspberry Pi through them on or before April 18th should receive theirs by the end of June.

See the Buying Guide on how to order one, or visit the Raspberry Pi Foundation Home Page

About

The Rpi beta board (model B)

The Raspberry Pi (short: RPi or RasPi) is an ultra-low-cost credit-card sized Linux computer which was conceived with the primary goal of teaching computer programming to children. It was developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, which is a UK registered charity (Registration Number 1129409). The foundation exists to promote the study of computer science and related topics, especially at school level, and to put the fun back into learning computing. We expect this computer to have many other applications both in the developed and the developing world (Read more).

  • You can get the latest news from the Foundation Home Page, the Twitter Feed or in the forums.
  • For Raspberry Pi frequently asked questions see the R-Pi FAQ or the Raspberry Pi Foundation's FAQ page.
  • Products are RoHS, CE, FCC, CTick and CSA compliant. Please contact the distributor from whom you purchased your Raspberry Pi device for details regarding WEEE in your country.
  • Expected cost: ~16GBP or 25USD Model A, ~23GBP or 35USD for Model B. For information about availability and shipping see the Buying Guide.


History

  • Russell Davis (aka forum admin ukscone) has a series of blog articles recording his perspective of the Raspberry Pi story in several parts from the beginning.
  • You will often hear mention of the BBC Micro Computer when people talk about the purpose of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. See this article on the history of the BBC Micro Computer.
