Since the UK-based Raspberry Pi Foundation first promoted teaching basic computer science in schools in 2012 using a simple single-board computer, this platform has become a worldwide phenomenon. By driving the cost of general-purpose computing to below $5, its devices have enabled implementation of a multitude of low-cost applications including interactive museum exhibits, postal sorting machines, government call centers, home security systems, and webservers. They have also helped teach basic hardware and software computer skills in schools for the past 11 years. Unbeknownst to the vast majority of the world, Raspberry Pi hardware powers products used by billions of people worldwide on a daily basis.

In this talk, Chris Boross will provide a technical discussion of the latest generation Raspberry Pi 5 hardware, including details about the new RP1 I/O controller and the RP2040, Raspberry Pi’s first microcontroller. Both were designed by the company’s in-house ASIC team. Also discussed will be other industrial-focused products such as the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 product. A brief overview video about the Raspberry Pi 5 is here.
