"Since releasing the original Compute Module we’ve launched 2 further generations of much faster Raspberry Pi boards, so today we bring you the shiny new Compute Module 3 (CM3) which is based on the Raspberry Pi 3 hardware, providing twice the RAM and roughly 10x the CPU performance of the original module."
And as always, if you build anything using the CM3, share it in the comments below. We love seeing what you get up to with our hardware.
Check out today's blog for dates, Picademy information and our registration form.
Discover more about our continued plans to support and inspire educators and young digital makers throughout 2017.
Today's blog shines the light at makers and Pi-powered event organisers Michael Horne and Tim Richardson.
Today, we launched a new digital making curriculum that will help people everywhere to learn new skills.
So go grab a camera and your favourite pet (don't actually 'grab' them.) and share the results with us in the comments below!
…and then burn it. BURN IT.
The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.
What’s more, the Raspberry Pi has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been used in a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infrared cameras. We want to help people of all ages all over the world to use digital technology to make things, create things and get things done.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a registered educational charity (registration number 1129409) based in the UK. Our goal is to advance the education of adults and children, particularly in the field of computers, computer science and related subjects.
