Hot off the heels of last month’s Raspberry Pi manufacturing deal with Sony, element14 today announced its continued partnership with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, launching an upgraded 512 MB version of the credit card-sized development board. Featuring double the RAM, the higher performance mini-computer is suited to multimedia, high-memory and mobile applications. The additional memory is also an enabler to allow the Raspberry Pi to run a future version of an Android 4.0 operating system.
The $35 Raspberry PI 512MB board is available now at element14 on a first come first served basis through its brands Newark element14 in North America, Farnell element14 in Europe, and element14 in Asia Pacific, as well as through subsidiaries CPC in the UK and MCM Electronics in the US.
Members of the element14 Community are invited to join the discussion online and share ideas and plans for the Raspberry Pi on the dedicated Raspberry Pi Group, bolstering more than 7,000 new members from across the globe. Plus, make sure to check out the revolutionary board and accompanying accessories on display at electronica in Munich, Germany on November 13-16, 2012.
The full press release is included below with additional details. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to speak with an element14 representative about the new Raspberry Pi development board and its impact on the programming revolution.
