Visit today's blog post for more information on the two NEW Compute Module 3 versions, as well as the updated Compute Module IO Board V3 (CMIO3), including where to purchase your own.

"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.
Way back in April of 2014 we launched the original Compute Module (CM1), which was based around the BCM2835 processor of the original Raspberry Pi. CM1 was a great success and we’ve seen a lot of uptake from various markets, particularly in IoT and home and factory automation. Not to be outdone by its bigger Raspberry …

Any chance of a Picademy in Melbourne, Australia? I'll help with the organization if that is useful.

Story
Tagline
We make tiny computers from $5. We help people create things with digital tech. We're a non-profit.
Introduction

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.
