Support for industrial clients comes in the form of a new dedicated section of the Raspberry Pi website where information on the latest boards, such as the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 and specifics on how the Raspberry Pi range of computers comply with the many regulations and specifications for electronic devices, can be found for those looking to integrate the Raspberry Pi into a product.
Raspberry Pi Principal Hardware Engineer Roger Thornton further clarifies the support in a blog post.
“To support Raspberry Pi’s industrial customers, we have developed a new, dedicated area of our website. Our For industry pages are the best place to go for industrial applications of Raspberry Pi. They provide access to the information and support you need when using our products in an industrial setting, with links to datasheets, compliance documents, and more.”
Roger Thornton also confirms long-term support til 2026 for all products and a mechanism to assist customers in ensuring that their products comply with regulatory compliance.
Raspberry Pi Approved Design Partners
The organisation also announced a programme for Raspberry Pi Certified Design Partners to “…help customers who want to integrate Raspberry Pi into their products, and to recognise companies with specialist knowledge and proven expertise in designing with Raspberry Pi.”
Initially launching with a small set of designers who have worked with Raspberry Pi, the group aims to expand over time and provide technical support for clients who have created a product that uses a Raspberry Pi.
