Popular Prototype Computer now Available for Industrial Serial Use: Kontron’s Single Board Computer Based on Raspberry Pi
Augsburg, Germany, November 16, 2018 – Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), offers a comprehensive Development Kit for designing products based on Raspberry Pi for industrial purposes. The kit includes a developement board according to SBC specifications, a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 Light (CM3L) and an SD card with the pre-configured Raspian operating system. With this offer, Kontron is meeting the requirements of development departments in various industries that design prototypes based on Raspberry Pi, but have so far shied away from industrial use of the platform due to a lack of professional support. In addition, many applications and programs that are freely available for Raspberry Pi from the Open Source Community can now be used for industrial purposes as well, without any additional development effort. For example, the platform has already been certified for usage in healthcare.
