Raspberry Pi Model B Rev.2

Raspberry Pi Model B

Now w/ 512 MB RAM, 2 USB Ports and Ethernet

The Raspberry Pi (short: RPi or RasPi) is an ultra-low-cost credit-card sized computer board which was conceived with the primary goal of teaching computer programming to children. It's also a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets and word-processing, it even plays high-definition video. Or you can use it as a small server for applications like Links opens in new window/tabmpd or Links opens in new window/tabownCloud. Or as a gaming or emulation system (for example built into a C64 case with the Keyrah interface). Or something entirely different, it's up to you. :-)

The system must be booted from an SD card (Links opens in new window/tabsuitable card images are freely available), other mass storage devices can be connected via USB.

Raspberry Pi Model B Rev.2 (RS Components)


We offer boards made by element14 (picture on top of page) and by RS Components (right hand side). The technical specifications of both versions are identical, both are Rev.2 boards with 512 RAM (and both are made in the UK).

In case you are looking for a board with even less power requirements than the Model B, you should also have a look at the Raspberry Pi Model A and Model B+. (The B+ also offers additional connectivity.)

New Out Of Box Software: NOOBS

We no longer offer cards with Raspbian or XBMC or RiscOS, since they are now all included in the marvellous new software package Links opens in new window/tabNOOBS. NOOBS currently features the following operating systems:
  • Raspbian
  • RaspBMC
  • OpenELEC (XBMC)
  • Archlinux
  • Pidora
  • RiscOS
Raspbian is already present on the card (vanilla version and a version that boots directly into Scratch), the other operating systems must be loaded from the internet.

You simply select one of these operating systems for installation, and it will be booted on the next start. The operating system can be changed any time later, just hold the Shift key while booting. If you'd like to order a card pre-installed with NOOBS, please select it in the configuration menu.
