Farnell sales of Raspberry Pi reach 15m worldwide

Farnell, the leading manufacturer and distributor of the Raspberry Pi single-board computer (SBC), has reported that sales have now reached the remarkable total of 15 million devices worldwide.

Launched in 2012 the Raspberry Pi is sold to electronic design engineers, educators, hobbyists and makers.

With the Raspberry Pi’s most recent launch, the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B computer, sales have been given a significant increase. This new board is the most powerful Raspberry Pi to date: three times faster than the previous model with a range of memory options and improved interfacing and connectivity to extend capabilities for all users.

The Raspberry Pi 4 can be used as a high-performance embedded platform, or as a full-featured desktop computer.

Farnell stocks all Raspberry Pi models, alongside its diverse ecosystem of accessories, which supports users as they build devices for home, education or commercial applications.

Farnell has championed Raspberry Pi through its element14 Community, creating a forum for its 650,000 members to access informative and educational threads, as well as get involved in Raspberry Pi-based design challenges.

Farnell also supports customers as they bring products to market with its maker-to-market service, programmes for start-ups, 24/7 technical support and an exclusive agreement with Raspberry Pi (Trading) for the customisation of Raspberry Pi products.
